5. Morning Teaser: 'I love my husband but I can't stop seeing my lesbian lovers'

"Dear Pulse,

My name is Bisi, a 29-year-old woman who is turned between two worlds. I am married to a darling of a man, Mark, but I am what people would call bisexual. I was introduced into lesbianism in my secondary school (an all-girls' school), by my seniors who neck deep into it.

In fact, as early as 14, they had deflowered me and as I grew up, I found it difficult to let go of that lifestyle."

"In my days in the university, I had female lovers and though I was able to hide it to the outside world by also dating and sleeping with men, I was more comfortable with women. It has gotten so bad that sex with my husband is more of a boredom and I can't even enjoy it as much as I do with my lesbian partners.

I have prayed, fasted and promised myself that I would do away with this secret addiction but I end up going back to them."
