One of the reasons for the high rate of teenage pregnancies is because many African parents live in denial that their children know nothing about sex. So, rather than talk to them about the subject matter, they leave them to find out when they become adults. Unfortunately, these children, most times, don’t become adults before they start engaging in sex.

For some parents, they misinform their children about sex because they believe it will ‘guide’ them against making mistakes. Sadly, we are in the age where we get to read, hear and see what sex is really about.

The kind of music and movie these teenagers watch also do not help matters. Pressure from friends, who also are ignorant about sex matters, is another factor to consider on properly educating our teenagers.

A media personality and sexual health advocate, Lolo Cynthia, recently had a sex education session with some students in Lagos state. She spoke to them about pregnancies, masturbation, virginity, sex for cash and consent.

Cynthia also shared some very interesting questions the students asked during the session and the questions revealed that, parents have to rise to the task of educating their kids with the correct information about sex.
