Welcome to Sex Ed 101. Your favorite teacher is in and things are about to get tense in here. For many Nigerian teenagers, our background in sex education is almost if not totally similar. Sometimes it begins to feel like everyone is reluctant to even talk about it due to the conservative nature of our society. You’re just in luck however, here are things you should know. RULE 1 : Always use protection. Infact, make it a slogan; No protection, No action. I know someone somewhere is assuring his babe that his pull out game is A+. But this isn’t just to prevent unwanted pregnancy but to also protect you from STIs. 30 minutes of fun is not worth the embarrassment of scratching your genitals like a dog in heat.RULE 2: Make sure you get tested periodically. This is necessary especially if you have multiple sexual partners or you are in an open relationship. Even if you feel there’s nothing wrong with you, precautions are extremely important. It’s likely that you are in the window period of an infection and that’s why you are not presenting symptoms.RULE 3: Consent is key, not just before but also during sex. I know sometimes you’ve probably seen one technique on Kamasutra that you can’t wait to try out. Make sure your partner is comfortable with it. If you end up killing someone because you want to prove that you’re Mike Tyson, you’ll explain why you can’t do ordinary missionary and be satisfied.Finally, a back up plan is also necessary. If you’re not ready to have a mini- you walking around, then you should have a plan besides using condoms. There are a lot of preventive measures ranging from temporary ones like IUDs and injectables or permanent ones like vasectomy and bilateral Tubal litigation. You and your partner should see a doctor and decide which works best for you. For more information, visit http://www.nurhitoolkit.orgStay safe guys, wash your hands and stay at home. Remember, don’t just be a social media doctor, take actual precautions.All images from
