Controversial marriage counsellor, Cyril George Carstensen Lutterodt, widely known as Counselor Lutterodt has condemned young men and women who go on television shows, dating sites, etc to look for partners.

The marriage counsellor who has received backlash for his rather ‘extreme’ views is of the view that such acts are similar to prostitution hence describing it as “ashawo” in disguise.

Explaining the basis for his argument, the vociferous counsellor noted that such avenues do not create a proper platform where thorough investigations can be conducted about the potential partner adding that people are not in a better position to look out for what they want.

He further added that the platform also tends to breed emotional and psychological stress on participants who are rejected. Counsellor Lutterodt noted that people rejected in such public places tend to have a bad perception about themselves hence affecting their self-esteem and confidence.

“You don’t have what it takes to investigate the person. If you are supposed to interview somebody, you need to have a cue card. There is a line up of question or a target. You don’t have those things. You are just going in because you want somebody to marry you. You meet the guy on TV and they give you things you can ask the guy. So all of a sudden on TV, all of a sudden on TV you ask the guy and he says I like you, what are the things you know about the person,” he explained.

“I think that it is glorified prostitution if you ask me. That we are glorifying prostitution but using other mediums to invite people to practice ‘ashawo’ in disguise,” Lutterodt said.
