Existing in a very controversial society, I was always of the mindset that nothing should ever surprise me, never.  I have known the saying, there is power in the tongue but this seems to be no longer the fact.  This power has ‘spread’ from the tongue to the lips.  Confused, ok let me shed some light on the issue.  Society was once dominated by the males of the human species, stemming from them being the bread winner, the alpha male, and the head of the household.  Sounds familiar, well sorry to say, that is a thing of the past, the power now lies firmly with the woman, the strength of a nation, the backbone, the foundation that holds any unstable structure securely in place.  This is an extremity, especially in contemporary Caribbean society, where father figures are missing from homes, leaving mothers to bear the burdens and responsibilities of two.  Well, there is this type of power but it gets more technical.

The power I speak of has transcended the pulse of the heart and lies strictly in the sexual organ of the woman, you heard me correctly, the vagina.  I have been observing the number of songs being voiced by females, stressing how powerful their ‘buff’ is.  From my assessment of these lyrics, there seems to exist three categories of the female sexual organ, the Grip Him & Hold Him,  Gimmi Weh mi Waah and the Must Tek Yu Man.

The first category consists of vaginas that possess the ideal strength, never allowing a man to leave once he visits.  Lady Saw has stressed that if him lef a no fi har buff fault, thus alluding to the fact that if a man has sex with her once and decides to leave, it is not because her vagina is weak, it must be for some other reason.  As such, this category is the one  men need to be most conscious of because once ‘visited’ he will be ‘held accountable’ thereafter, a fact insinuated in Pamputtae’s testimony, di ‘I shall return’ bring him home at night.  It now gives a clear understanding why some women women refer to their vagina as THE GUM, cleverly named if you ask me.

The Gimmi Weh Mi Waah class of vagina has been known to strip men of their willpower resulting in them showering the holder with the desires of her heart.  Too often I have heard females saying that ‘ a it gimmi mi house and everyting inna it’, if it has been professed by so many, who am I to question the existence of such strength.

The final category seems to be the most common because it is that which has been mentioned the most.  If you focus your attention of the chorus of Tun UP you will realize that O says man is not an issue kaa har pum pum tun up, which I have interpreted to mean that when the need arises for one she can have him at her disposal.  Focusing on the title of the category, it can be seen where the real debate exists, does a vagina hold such power to cause a woman to lose her man to a another woman with a more victorious vulva, females, your contributions please.
