The power of Ghanaian waist beads

A bead is a small, decorative object that is formed in a variety of shapes and sizes of a material such as stone, bone, shell, glass, plastic, wood or pearl, and that a small hole is drilled for threading or stringing. Beads range in sizes from under one millimeter to over 1 centimeter.


Ghanaian beads are often objects of great beauty and style. These sacred adornments are worn and loved by men, women and children as well. It does not matter the age, young or old there is something for everyone. Ghanaian beads speaks of values, beliefs, achievements, status, rituals and ceremonies like rites of passage, birthdays, anniversaries etc.

Most of the pieces have a spiritual, religious or cultural significance to them. They are simple reminders of the simplest aspects of life; love, peace and happiness.

Waist beads are very powerful ‘instrument’ on the woman. They are common among the Krobos in the Eastern Region of Ghana. Some ladies choose to wear them in multiples, others wear just one. They’re made from recycled broken bottles and rubber. The main idea behind wearing of waist beads was to check weight, so when the beads get tighter, you know you’re putting on weight, and when they’re loose, you know you’ve lost weight. But, beads have other powerful effects like communication other than beautification and here are a few:

When women wear them in multiples, they will rattle as they walk and this will send signals to men. The sound of it could send signals to the male’s brain and then down to his penis to erect.


When a woman is naked with the bead around her waist, it is a good sight to behold. They are worn loosely so they can rest on the V-boot, but others wear them tight on their bikini lines and these are beholding to the sight of men.

In the olden days, there were beads when worn, signaled men they are in their menstrual period.

There are beads to communicate that a woman is horny. Those are usually made like crystals, they glitter, so when they are sighted by men they would understand what is expect of them. Therefore, if a beautiful lady is unable to ask of a man to sleep with her they can get the beads to do the talking.

There’s also the type of beads that signals ‘I’m not ready for sex’; when a woman wears, it means NO SEX! Men are alerted to back off when they see their women in that type.

Finally, when a man is impotent or sexually weak, LISTEN AND TAKE NOTE, an insertion of the penis between the skin of the woman and the bead; usually from behind for about 10 minutes resurrects the penis and gives it a good erection! Usually, after the first round of sex, it’s believed if the man starts touching and ‘praying’ the beads on the woman as Catholics do to the rosary, it brings power to the penis right away for another bout.

Ladies, don’t underestimate waist beads! Get yours, they are important! They are available at all markets across the country. Discuss with the sellers the reason behind your purchase and the right beads would be served.
