I know Sex is the most embarrassing topic for people of all ages and nationalities, but one day you enter a class of 15 year old students and you introduce yourself as a Feminine Health Empowerment facilitator and that they can ask you any question about their bodies actually they can anonymously write down their questions. The first few questions you receive read:
1. Madam, i am sorry i have to ask please don't laugh, is it a must when you had sex you discharge pus?
2. Is it true when you urinate in the same toilet as men, youget pregnant?
3. How is a baby made? I was told babies are bought? What makes a baby?
4. Sister,is it true when you have sex two or three times you are no longer a virgin?
5. Is it true if you had sex and conceive, tea leaves can be used to abort the pregnancy?
6. What is anal sex?
What comes to your mind? Thesegirls have heard all sort of information concerning sex whether the information weretrue or not. Parents and guardians sometimes give simple answers thinking that their kids are too young to hear the truth but then they forget to update their `little white lies`when the time comes. We leavegirls with misinformation which expose them to health issues that might be harmful or that could be avoided and we are denying them their right to make informed choices.
Yes it is embarrassing to tell your daughter about sex but these questions were asked by someone's daughter and if we were not there in class to answer them they would have grown up with these false informationand questions.
If your a parent you are not saving your child for hiding or feeding her myth on sex, talk to your children, YES it is hard and embarrassing but you will save his/her life. They will still be our little angels who will grow up to be guardian angels if we do our work right as parents.
