      wow this is sooo interesting. 70% of our population is youths so that means a large percentage are sexually active. And there is no information out there.

    • Modella November 10, 2013 at 4:19 PM

      Lol…I never wanted to experience unprotected sex till I get married,but the way girls kept talking about it ehhh…few months ago,I gave it a shot,not a big deal,but I was scared thou,I thought I will be pregge,but my fiance kept assuring me and he wouldn’t allow to take any contraceptive…The day I saw my monthly period still remain the greatest day of my life..I’m a very careful person,I don’t indulge in immoral escapade,but nobody holy pass…the only thing that still keep my conscience clear is blcas I ve known my guy like forever,I feel married already…May God help from sin!

      • tokunbo November 11, 2013 at 4:05 AM

        You sound 20! Bia u are probably less than 25 yrs old

    • Mautin November 10, 2013 at 4:46 PM

      Great video, but the saddest thing about it is that people think that oral contraceptives prevent STD’s like AIDS, gonorrhea or chlamydia or syphilis, which ABSOLUTELY FALSE. You can be on birth control to prevent pregnancy but still get those diseases. The ONLY 2 ways of preventing STD’s are 1)abstinence 2)condom. shikenah. Nigerian youth, please understand this very important concept I take God beg una.

    • asgrl November 10, 2013 at 4:46 PM

      This was so sad to watch. I thank God for the mother I have. I has my first sex education talk with my mother right around the time I got my first period. Granted it was under the treat of, if you get pregnant don’t come home and it was embarrassing to get my lesson at the same time with my older brother.

      I’m glad she felt empowered enough to let us know what could happen with our changing bodies. She couldn’t even say the word “sex” but in her Yoruba accented english she said “Ti Okunrin ba n ni fun pelu obinrin, this is what will happen..” translated “When a man has fun with a woman”.

      Back to the video, its not too hard to see why STD and HIV infection rates are high in Sub-Saharan Africa. Each time Postinor and Mestrogen, non contraceptives were mentioned, I just cringed. Condoms are not that expensive, There is no reason why copious amounts should not be available for free in Dorm rooms or free clinics around the country.

      I don’t believe in sex before marriage, but its ridiculous to think 150+ million people will think the same way I do or practice. There is certainly dire need for public health professionals in the country.

    • Vivian November 10, 2013 at 4:58 PM

      Making sex? Having sex? Oral contraceptives will not prevent STIs or HIV. Only pregnancy, and that should even be the least of the worries of young people having unprotected sex. Use a condom! Even though it’s not 100percent, the chances are higher when used correctly! For those allergic to latex condoms, there are non latex condoms. There are female condoms too. Prevention is better than cure! Even parents here in the US don’t want to believe their teens are having sex. Some refuse to sign the consent form for sex education classes for their child. It’s not a nigerian thing alone.

    • jennietobbie November 10, 2013 at 5:06 PM

      very powerful video.

    • my luck November 10, 2013 at 5:31 PM

      duh! you should have asked if they have ever asked protected sex

    • Deee November 10, 2013 at 5:32 PM

      Lmao, Postnor customer he he he. It is sad that health professionals like Pharmacists are embarrassing people and thus preventing them from feeling comfortable to buy condoms or contraceptives and protect themselves.

      • yomi November 10, 2013 at 9:50 PM

        Are you sure about this statement? Pharmacists embarassing people? As far as I’m concerned, they do more of the counsrlling. Whether we preach abstinence or not, young people are having sex and the number is increasing. Creating awareness about STI’s and consequences such as infertility for women is important. I believe that’s the essence of the video. Prrotect yourself. Use condoms. Pregnancy is not the worst that can happen, and No , they don’t protect you from STD’s

    • Dee November 10, 2013 at 5:55 PM

      I am dieing at this her “we are making sex”. lmao! are we really making sex tho? -_-

      • Miss_Flygerian November 10, 2013 at 6:15 PM

        EL OH EL!!!! I thought it was just me. Making sex ke? hahahaha!!

      • Gee is dieing! November 10, 2013 at 9:49 PM

        Muppet! it’s dying, and not dieting! Don’t throw stones especially when you live in a glass house.

      • Nini November 10, 2013 at 11:52 PM

        lol
        Yes o, manufacturing sex hehehehe

      • CarliforniaBawlar November 11, 2013 at 7:25 AM

        FYI….Making sex is the wonderful cross between making love and having sex……word on the street is that that’s the best way to go these days!!
        p.s. please don’t ask me what street I live on….hehehe :-D

      • Uche November 11, 2013 at 1:37 PM

        as in….. i kicked miself a couple of times…. “making sex”

    • Blaqgurlrok November 10, 2013 at 6:10 PM

      Lmao hehehe ‘have you ever make unprotected sex’ who says that… But my God no wonder the rate of HIV is very high all they seem to know is postinol, that means they are actually having inprotected sex.

    • Esco November 10, 2013 at 6:16 PM

      As we become a country whose middle and upper class citizens want to boogie to the latest music jams, appear on the red carpet at glam events in what is fast becoming the ‘Aladdin syndrome’ and spend cash of luxuries, health is taking a backseat. In many arguments or debates about how best Nigeria is to move forward under GEJ’s tutelage, power generation and job creation seem to be the top priorities. What about health?

      The first step to creating a healthy populace is controlling the way medicines are taken. In our dear country, we sabi abuse medicines sha.

      Growing up in the grim 80s, my recollections of government health initiatives are blurry. I remember government sponsored infomercials promoting ORT (Oral Rehydration Therapy) as a treatment for diarrhea during pregnancy. It was a popular jingle, not just for the message itself, but for how the man pronounced therapy as ‘therakpi’ in his thick Yoruba accent.

      I also remember when the sex education adverts came to town.

      The first one I can remember is where a randy chap tries to bone this really dark sister, and she nervously says ‘ I am scared.’ She pronounced the ‘scared’ in a really funny way like how Chingy says ‘herre’.

      The scene fades out to another preachy scene on sex education, before a Sunny Ade and Onyeka Onwenu duet with the lyrics ‘If you love me, you go wait for me…’ Nice song.

      The condom ads were the worst. Gold Circle ads always looked kinda dodgy and always seem to make it look like the viewer was a perv in the first place for opting for a ‘balloon’ contraceptive. The lass in the advert was always the unwilling party while the guy was a sex-hungry beast. Nigerian women apparently are not supposed to want sex and they dare not produce a rubber. Like you, ashewo, you.

      One particular advert was really corny. It was a radio advert, and you heard what sounded like a Papa Ajasco character propose to a love interest ‘ Baby abeg come now, make we go jiggy jiggy..’

      The girl’s reply was classic. She abused the hell out of the man, as if he had just asked her to kill for him.

      Jiggy jiggy? What a lexicon!

      • lorenz November 10, 2013 at 8:07 PM

        I just love your comment. Or was that really a comment or a mini lecture?

      • Mz Socially Awkward... November 10, 2013 at 9:56 PM

        Is this Esco from WoahNigeria? I remember that ad, some guy leaving Naija and wanting his babe to put out, with Sunny Ade & Onyeka Owenu in the background belting out …
        “If you love you go wait for me,
        if you love me you go plan with me,
        Wait for me, baby plan with me…”

        This level of ignorance on sexual health is seriously deadly and I have to hand it to Battabox for hitting the streets to speak directly with the youngsters who the government don’t seem too bothered about educating (even though the Universities are the popular hunting grounds of philandering politicians).

        Although, I must admit every time one of presenters made earnest references to “making sex/making unprotected sex”, she just cracked me up….

        • Esco November 11, 2013 at 4:51 PM

          Hi Mz Socially Awkward, aye it is Esco. How are you. Good points, btw

      • Bolanle November 11, 2013 at 9:35 AM

        I don’t know you but I think I’m in love.

      Interesting.

      africansweetheart.blogspot.co.uk/

    • looters November 10, 2013 at 6:44 PM

      this video makes me shiver. POSTINOR 2 (and any other pill) is a plan C. CONDOM is a Plan B and ABSTINENCE is the PLAN A. Even the presenters are not well informed

      • Karonwi November 10, 2013 at 9:17 PM

        Abstinence seems to be extinct! Noone is preaching it anymore, we are now concerned about educating people about condoms/contraceptives (otherwise encouraging premarital sex)
        Where does God’s standard come in in all this? Lord, help our generation.

        • Idak November 11, 2013 at 1:59 PM

          Some people still preach abstinence and some still practise it. The truth is that people need to be armed with information on what to do when their flesh fails them. Does not mean that it will fail them but why contract an STD the first and last time you have premarital sex?
          Sharing personal experiences might distract from the point at hand but i do not see preaching protection as being against abstinence.
          After all, you do not refuse to insure your car simply because their is very low crime rate in your neighbourhood.

    • Alache November 10, 2013 at 6:46 PM

      Making sex me????? Kilode making sex

    • Abana November 10, 2013 at 7:32 PM

      Whether she said making sex or having sex, the message is clear. We are in dire need of sexual health education in Nigeria. The solution to a problem is not avoiding the problem. Its confronting it head on. I would never for the life of me understand why parents choose to avoid educating their kids properly. I won’t even wait until they get boobies or start their period. There are 7 year old girls having sex in the UK. I would refuse to be blissfully ignorant! There is not point working under the illusion that my child is a sexually inactive when statistics say otherwise.

    • Ai November 10, 2013 at 7:32 PM

      Batta box shld be training their presenters na.. Making Sex ni… boos job koo

    • Tobenna November 10, 2013 at 8:05 PM

      O Boy…the Condom tear Ohhhh…I was damn scared! Have you had unprotected sex? Yes…but it was by mistake

    • Idak November 10, 2013 at 8:07 PM

      This is not a laughing matter o!
      I have said it before and i am saying it again,we need to revamp the whole brand identity around condoms. It must be made as accessible and acceptable as buying recharge cards. A two pronged attack of making condoms acceptable and intensifying the principle of celibacy is needed.
      I am almost tempted to say that churches should partner with reputable NGO and stand in dark corners of night clubs handing out packs of high quality condoms (not Gold Circle o!) while also speaking a quick Word of faith (devoid of judgemental looks and attitude) to seemingly sober crawlers on their way out of the clubs.
      Unprotected sex outside marriage is one of the most myopic actions i can imagine. I struggle to understand how it can ever be justified. This is not a question battabox should be asking only young Nigerians,even older Nigerians need to be asked too and our collective sexual habits need redressing for the sake of our future as a people.

      • H's boo November 11, 2013 at 7:23 AM

        lmao……your comment made me laugh. True though!

      • Anonymous November 12, 2013 at 4:34 PM

        Well some of us have been using Goldcircle for so long and no complaints. it feels same as other condoms in the market. Infact, What i hear is that it is subsidized, and that doesn’t make it cheap since someone is paying for it, it just makes it affordable and accessible to everyone, for those of us who are smart of enough to know what to do with our life.

    • rootwoo.com November 10, 2013 at 8:08 PM

    • therapist November 10, 2013 at 8:23 PM

      very important and interesting topic…..

      sensorycare.blogspot.com and i also do free consultation………..its the Naija therapist!

    • somebody November 10, 2013 at 9:21 PM

      Am I the only one that noticed when that lady said “seulz” instead of “sex”, or something like that? SMH. People really need to take charge of their lives and health and protect themselves. I’m all for Plan A, ABSTINENCE.

      • Mz Socially Awkward... November 10, 2013 at 9:59 PM

        I heard that too and wondered if maybe she was too bashful to say the actual word? You know how typical Naija mums will never use that word in a conversation with their children if they can avoid it…. :-)

        • Aibee November 12, 2013 at 8:43 AM

          Reminds me of my thoroughly educated and exposed mum who would say “sectual relations”. She won’t say sex oh, the relations must follow.

      • P November 10, 2013 at 10:03 PM

        No you are not!! LMAO i had to pause it and laugh for a min!!!

      • Nini November 10, 2013 at 11:54 PM

        lol…..you’re not the only one :)) :)) :))

    • Nene Morgan November 10, 2013 at 9:33 PM

      The parents are the weakest link! Geeez. Learn to empower your children instead of being in denial. They are exposed to peer pressure and only a few, if at all, will be able to abstain based on all the “threats” they received as kids. Empower your children for the better!

      • Idak November 11, 2013 at 5:37 AM

        When most of the parents themselves are not even empowered? How do you think all these children outside wedlock come about? Sex without protection outsiDr marriage is a societal problem. A sign of our love for instant gratification at the expense of our future.

        • Bleed Blue November 11, 2013 at 10:28 AM

          Idak up there, Idak down here…will the real Idak please stand up?! Or are you now using two separate devices to comment? :)

          This topic of unprotected sex should be discussed till it’s flogged into everyone’s ears. Years ago, in Abuja, I spoke to a few AIDS patients in hospital…amazing how loads of them spoke very good English, seemed enlightened enough but all stated they found themselves there due to unprotected sex with randoms…like WHY though?!!! :(

        • Idak November 11, 2013 at 11:06 AM

          Same old Idak!
          You guess is right,two devices were used based on accessibility at different times.

    • TheTruth13 November 10, 2013 at 9:37 PM

      Making sex’ making sex, we are making sex. LMAOOO!

    • okija tins November 10, 2013 at 10:22 PM

      Making sex kwa? the slang una dey use for naija na wa….

      Anyways girls can lie sha, 80% of the girls all said “one of my friend” . It is always one of their friend that is making the sex or it is one of their friend that went to buy the drug/contraceptives… Una shook too.

    • St. ed November 10, 2013 at 10:25 PM

      Please oh….abeg everybody, what are the ingredients and components the youths use in “making” sex.

    • Chris Handler November 10, 2013 at 10:46 PM

      Eh! Nigerias dey launch dema waste ooo, abeg anyways, if u want news on ghana celebs, fashion, jokes, dilemmas, short stories and much more like bella naija then go to thechrishandlershow.com

    • Gertrude November 11, 2013 at 12:23 AM

      If you’re not bold/grown enough to go into a pharmacy to buy condoms/pills, you probs shouldn’t be having sex.

    • Gertrude November 11, 2013 at 12:34 AM

      Welp! Just watched part 2 and it was sad to hear the opinion of the adults on “selx”(lolz). I guess it’s a cultural thing as well as the fact that Nigerians are unnecessarily religious. I hope our generation does better.

    • SOLO ACT November 11, 2013 at 2:46 AM

      we are MAKING SEX OOO!!!! lol sigh please birth control does not protect against aids! Unprotected sex is having sex without condoms u Can GET AIDS. AIDS IS WORSE THAN PREGNANCY.

    • NNENNE November 11, 2013 at 2:58 AM

      Great job Batta box! It’s time we start talking about sex, not only in our schools but also in our rural areas. Public awareness can help a lot in solving most of our public health issues.Let’s not leave the job to parents alone, who , are not even well informed themselves. The numerous churches/mosques we have in Nigeria could also do a lot of collaboration with the government.

    • canadian igbo November 11, 2013 at 6:50 AM

      it’s clear that niaja has a non existent public health sector. What we need a public health sector!!!! if not we still gonna be backward in this area of health care

    • Yetunde November 11, 2013 at 8:50 AM

      lol ‘postinor customer’

    • Curious Cat November 11, 2013 at 9:34 AM

      During my single days in always had condoms in my purse , and when ever the need arises the guy will be like you have it and i answer aids no dey show for face and one dude even went as far as saying babe you don spoil and i replied i rather spoil for bed than spoil kpapata kpata
      most parent prefer to live in denial just like we do to our societal problems therefore not taking into cognizance what need to be , i had this discussion with a friend yesterday and i resolved that when my kids are of age we would have sexual education lesson at part of our mama and children fun time .

      most adult are even scared to talk about sex even in between married folks its funny

    • FOLUKE November 11, 2013 at 11:00 AM

      this is serious! what will be of our future generations? almost every young person is having sex…ABSTINENCE should be preached more. it is COOL to abstain before marriage

    • Idak November 11, 2013 at 11:11 AM

      I wish most Nigerian mothers will be like Obinze’s mum in Americannah. That is the kind of father I will be,and even more. Preach abstinence with one hand (backed by God’s Word) and hand you a condom with the other hand.

      • CEO November 11, 2013 at 2:57 PM

        if you’re gonna preach God’s Word then preach God’s Word and trust God to keep our children, don’t contradict it by handing a condom with the other hand. That’s contradictory! There’s only One way!

        • Idak November 11, 2013 at 6:05 PM

          You will not hand your child a condom but you will expect her/him to know how to use it if (I did not say when) she falls? Or you don’t mind her coming home pregnant or with multiple STDs because mummy did not expose her to the availability and accessibility of condoms and the true impact of sex?
          It worked for me and it can work for my kids. I still did it God’s way,even with a CD in my wallet.

      • TA November 11, 2013 at 3:42 PM

        Hmmm… Is that not counter productive? Am just thinking o,I will discuss condoms as well as all other things my kids need to know about sex. But I am not handing my child a condom. No way! Abstinence is the best and I shall preach and advocate it till am hoarse.
        #am proudly team no sex before marriage. :-)

        • Idak November 11, 2013 at 6:11 PM

          If you will not hand him one, why discuss it with him/her?

      • TA November 11, 2013 at 10:08 PM

        Well,my discussion is not for the child to see it as an
        option but because schools and the mass media advocate its use. So
        I would want my child to get the facts from me.

      • BellaYankee November 15, 2013 at 10:42 AM

        You might as well also bring a porn movie to teach the child how to do it well. Or better still, bring a horny teenage boy home for your daughter to try out and make the bed afterwards.
        Definitely counter productive to hand them the condoms!

    • FOLUKE November 11, 2013 at 11:13 AM

      seriously lol @ we are making sex :D

    • Alex November 11, 2013 at 11:27 AM

      pls ooo…i just wanted to ask who her English teacher was and also d school she attends …in oda news…very interesting video

    • msrayeraye November 11, 2013 at 1:08 PM

      i actually have to give props to this country UK to the amount of sexual health clinics they provide the amount of information they give us. my parents never spoke to me about sex more like a taboo ‘if u come home pregnant am not ur father etc etc etc’ … they never signed my consent form in primary school to learn about sex…. lack of sex education makes a person ignorant no matter your background. i dont know why most african parents are scared to tell their children or educate their kids, no one is saying put a condom in their hands put at least you know that they are having ‘safe sex’ u can preach abstinence till Jesus comes they wont listen… at the end of the day its up to the individual.. a conscious decision over what happens to their body and their health… this video was quite enlightening… btw LOL @ Withdrawal method………

    • janny gal. November 11, 2013 at 1:33 PM

          @ Idak,Am trying to get your point on pushing abstinence
          and simultaneously walking around with a condom but I just can’t.
          You have no intention of committing a crime or murder but why walk
          around with a loaded gun? You get my drift? Let’s agree to disagree
          on this topic. ! :-)

      It is not just HIV. There are other things like HPV.

    • NNENNE November 11, 2013 at 8:01 PM

      If your partner refuses to use condom, please be smart and
      use one. He/she may be infected and want to pass it
      around.

      • Caribbean Babe November 12, 2013 at 1:05 AM

        I agree…. There are many out there that seek revenge when they have HIV/AIDS…. They want to infect others. Be smart and stay safe.

    • Caribbean Babe November 12, 2013 at 1:01 AM

      AIDS IS REAL. DO NOT HAVE UNPROTECTED SEX. Even where the couple is married, if your spouse is in the habit of having sex outside of marriage use a condom and go for regular HIV testing. I have heard of many stories where spouses have sex outside the marriage, then bring HIV back with them and in turn infect their spouses. So both single and married couples must be careful to not expose themselves to STDs though the cheating behavior of their partners. Single ladies, before you marry a guy, take note if he is in the habit of cheating on you. If so, don’t marry him. Whoever he sleeps with, you sleep with.

    • Idak November 12, 2013 at 1:21 PM

      @TA, i really do not make much sense to myself but I have
      heard enough stories of kids and young adults who made the mistake
      just once and got their live scared for good. I do not really
      accept that loaded gun analogy. As powerful as the sermon of
      celibacy is, I want kids to know that their if (not when) they
      fall,they can use protection. They don’t have to go looking for a
      condom in the heat of passion. You and I know that passion knocks
      out reason almost every time.

    • TA November 12, 2013 at 2:47 PM

      @ Idak,same way I did not agree to your analogy of a condom
      being compared to taking an Insurance. Like I said,I see your point
      but don’t agree with it and we don’t have to agree on this. :-) PS:
      Thats exactly my point,the easy availability of a condom makes it
      more difficult for the child to resist passion induced temptations.
      Methinks a walk to the pharmacy or drugstore as my Americana folks
      say may actually be the walk of reason (like throwing cold water in
      the face) the child needs to think through his actions.Passion and
      all it leads to do not start from a boy saying ‘hello, how are you?
      to a girl. There are stages to this ‘making sex/having sex’ marra. :-) Why be in a compromising situation/location or what have you
      with a man/woman you are clearly attracted to if you do not want to
      be making/having sex? Lol! I know I sound I might sound stiff or
      old fashioned but it has worked for me and several people I know
      and won’t raise my child differently. Of course,the onus rests
      squarely on the child to make wise decisions that will please His
      creator first,give him a clean conscience and wahala free life to
      an extent. BTW,Who says with a condom the child may not still
      decide to go ‘sans condom?

        Let me muse over these comments of yours.

      Finally, bella naija has lured me from under the rock I’ve been hiding. I have never left a comment on a blog before but…(y’all know how the rest goes). I have to commend batta box for tackling a subject that might pose as a taboo for some. The openess and honesty of the interviewees are in true sense an eye opener and I surely hope that this won’t be the end of this discussion. Hopefully we as a community can take this forward for the benefit of the younger generation. And for those having unprotected sex please exercise wisdom, prevention is better than cure.

      Just in case you have all forgotten, condoms are not 100% safe. The only real safe sex is no sex. I don’t plan to go all spiritual on my kids, installing fear through religion is ineffective. And since all sin is sin, if you’re going to preach Gods standard make sure they are not lying or cheating too (and I hope you aren’t too). After all, what good is it to die a virgin and still not make heaven :) jk
      Seriously though, we need to take a whole new approach to parenting. Build an open and trusting relationship long before they are old enough for the sex talk. I want my daughter to think of me first if she ever needed advice on anything, instead of letting her friends help her destroy her system with things like postinor. And I hope I will be able to present her with the facts and her options without coloring it with fear or righteous indignation.

      All I heard was making sex. Seriously though, most unmarried people in Nigeria are having sex yet no one wants to talk about it? Pls. I have a daughter and as soon as she gets a period we are having the talk.
