HIS friends call him itshitshi because he's never poked a woman.

But Aaron Lekitlane (47) would rather smoke zol or drink umqombothi.

That's because when he was a still a teenager, his friend committed suicide after a girlfriend cheated on him.

And since then the man from Khayelitsha kasi in Mangaung has been too afraid to date.

"The experience made me fear walking the same path as my friend," said Aaron.

He said he has been saving himself for the right woman he hoped to meet one day.

"I have never had a girlfriend in my life and I'm still a virgin," he said.

"Ladies only like us when we have money. As soon as you're broke, they leave. I don't trust them.

"They always leave their men for someone better and they are not loyal."

He said he works but only spends his money on zol and umqombothi.

"When I smoke my zol I feel happy every time. Even if I see a naked woman my PEN!S doesn't react.

"I'm still waiting for the right woman that I will meet one day.

"I believe my ancestors will bring her to me."

He said his friends say he is afraid of women.

"They call me itshitshi but I don't mind," said Aaron.

His concerned friend, Smackdown Masakala, said: "I grew up with Aaron, and he's never had a woman in his life. I think he's cursed.

"How come a 47-year-old man is still a virgin?"
