Study: Men with multiple sex partners have a Mental illness ‘Nuff Gyal Syndrome’


by Natalie Monique

I remember reading an article sometime ago whereby, after the launch of a mental health campaign in Kingston, Jamaica, leading Jamaican Psychiatrist, Dr. Frederick Hickling said, Jamaican men have a ‘completely wrong perception about polygamy.

Hickling went on further to clamp down on the frequent associations Jamaican men make between themselves and African Ancestors, using their polygamic lifestyle as an ‘excuse for transgression.’

He noted that this ‘behavior’ is being condoned in Jamaican society, especially in the lyrics of many Caribbean songs however pointing out that women are also guilty of this form of transgression.

The study showed that there is a thin line between ‘mere abnormality and a mental disorder’, the disease he refers to as ’nuff gyal syndrome’, nuff gyal from a line from popular song (see below) by Deejay Beenie Man.
