      AIDS is real… But it is very hard for people to abstain… I wish i cud get a man hu iz truthful and can wait for me till we get married as well as be faithful in our marriage.. I just lost the man of my life bcz of my bad attitudes towards him when he wanted to have sex with me… I refused and i was very angry @him… It wasnt easy. All in all i advise you guys to stay safe…and please pray alot. Thanks bella naija..

    Very timely message. Kudos to the production team. Meanwhile Bella Naija, a few months ago I submitted my HIV/AIDS film to you guys to share but I was told it wasn’t a subject matter your platform was exploring at the time, what gives?

    Nice work. Mo gbadun e. O na suso.
    Follow up ideas –
    Part Two: protection / contraception. Many people think it’s only needed when you’re with a confirmed ashawo. Many people think once you’re in a relationship proper or once a person is nice looking (neat, as they say) no need to worry. Many people be chooking girlfriend belle and aborting anyhow. Many husbands and wives be sharing diseases in the name of one-sided monogamy. On the other hand, if one has money to spend, many types of protection, no be only that cheap rubber somtin. Akwai strawberry, flavour, texture, orisirisi.

    Part Three: abstinence. i don’t know mosh about this, but folks should just know there’s nothing inside the sex thing ma sef to be causing impatience, maybe it’s overrated. So many things to do instead – hobbies, books, friendship, activities, family, religion. Kiss and stay with kissing till old enough. etc etc. Ha, our people too dey shag abeg. Go out, woo a girl, write poetry abi love letters, group outings, cook and eat together, make out, etc, na lie. Only the sex dey interest dem. I never see 😀

    Oya UNESCO, bring money.
