In Zimbabwe, poor sex workers are increasingly injecting themselves with blood to get high.

According to a new investigation, destitute Zimbabwean sex workers inject themselves with blood to get euphoric.

A syringe full of blood is transmitted from someone who has just shot heroin to someone else who wants the drugged blood instead of heroin in a new fad known as flashblood or bluetoothing.

According to the article, in a desperate attempt to share the intoxication, sex workers in Murambinda are injecting themselves with addicts’ blood. The sex workers inject themselves with inebriated blood in order to feel high and confident enough to approach potential clients as well as to meet their ever-changing sexual demands, which have recently included anal intercourse and blow jobs.

The trend was confirmed by Tafadzwa Dinga, a Microplanner working for the National Aids Council (NAC) under the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) supported Microplanning initiative.

Dinga stated,

Young sex workers are taking drugs. When we ask them they usually don’t divulge that they use drugs but the evidence will be there. Some of the common drugs being taken by these youngsters include Gukka Makafela, Bronclear (Ngomwa) and Marijuana. We are also hearing that young sex workers are now injecting each other’s blood to get high. They take blood from an intoxicated peer and deliberately inject into themselves, we have been hearing of such cases of late and we are still investigating.

Angela Matizanadzo, a microplanner in Murambinda, said it was not uncommon for sex workers in the neighborhood to be drug addicts due to their clients’ erratic sexual needs.

Angela stated, “

We are having a problem especially amongst our young sex workers. Some of them are new and can’t say no to certain demands. Of late, clients have been demanding anal sex and blow jobs. For experienced sex workers, they know that it’s risky to have anal sex and oral sex but our young girls are at a disadvantage.
