DON'T let me down now - might have been the fervent wish of guys whose penises failed them when they wanted to have sex with strippers in front of a crowd.
I saw this when the Sowetan was investigating the readiness of prostitutes for the 2010 World Cup.
At the Diplomat Hotel in the Johannesburg CBD a man dared a prostitute to sleep with him.
The buxom lady undressed the man and tried to fit a condom - at which his weapon shrank.
At the Royal Hotel a similar thing happened.
The upshot was that the ladies of the night are ready - but local men just don't have it.
