Hehehe. A few friends and I decided one summer night to do a rekkie on Stellies, thinking we weregoing to pick up some nasty student chicks. Big mistake!
The saying of 'When a Dutchman woman switches off the bedroom light, the bible gets tossed out of the window' certainly doesn't apply in Stellies. Paarl, YES!, but that's another story.
You see, we were city boys and English, which stacked against us.
We cruised from student jol to student jol and got the same reaction. On skimming the room on entry we immediately identified the ladies who looked like fun and game for some action, so we moved in and tag-teamed them. They seemed genuinely interested, us being novel and all.
But, each time we were moving in for the kill, we suddenly got hoards of Dutchmen okes crowding our tables, loudly taking over our conversations and giving us the evil eye. The locals are very protectionist over their stock.
Stellies is truly the last outpost of SA's deeply entrenched conservatism, being the town of Hoër Christelike Onderwys. Unlike Potchefstroom, which was similar, Stellies girls mostly still all go to church and bible study week in and week out. The elder folk in the town are all NG freaks.
I can tell you, hell will freeze over before anything in the realm of adult entertainment happens there.
I know a guy who owns a franchise video store there, who decided he'll keep a small range of adult movies under the counter for over 18's to hire. He figured the local boys would dig it. He had a small sign in the store saying 'Adult Movies Available - Over 18's, Enquire at Counter'. Within two weeks all the local churches were praying for him and the closure of his store. The next thing they were picketing in front of his shop and even made a thing about it in the local rag. He almost lost his business. That was the end of that idea.
In an article in the Cape Argus about a year ago, a private Stellies art gallery had an international exhibition, which had a few artistic and implied nudes in it. The community went berserk and called for a boycott of the exhibition. Eventually the Chamber of Commerce stepped in and forced him to remove them.
Hookers in Stellies, I don't think so!
