Kenyans, Including 13 Year Olds, Are Extremely Sexually Active According To a New Reasearch

Remember Project X?

The controversial event was outed when a concerned parent found the poster in her child’s phone and proceeded to share it online, asking what it was about.

It created a lot of outcry and condemnation from the public. But the truth was, that was just one of the many events that had taken place where kids met, had a good time, messed around and went back home.

The parents were none the wiser. The teenagers still have these kinds of private house parties but the info is shared with a small and intimate circle.

Meet the ‘120-year-old virgin’ who credits lack of sex for his long life

They communicate via apps like Telegram where the administrator of the channel can detect if someone has taken a screenshot of the conversations, thus keeping it secure.

With the help of technology – and other factors, the age that teenagers are engaging in sexual activity is getting younger, fuelled by each phone upgrade or the emergence of new, exciting apps.

The innocence once attributed to a 13-year-old is long gone with the proverbial romp in the hay.

According to the consumer insight WAKENYA report, Kenyans are extremely sexually active. Many may idealise sex as an act of adult maturity, but 7 out of 10 Kenyan women confess to having sex under the age of 16, with 1 out of every 2 Kenyan men also admitting to the same.

The research highlights that 28% of females interviewed had their first sexual encounter before they were 13 years old. This is higher than the men who lost their virginity at that age, who came in at 18%.

lost_generation_cover_1

At the age of 13-15 years old, only 36% of the males got intimate for the first time while 39% of the females interviewed had their first encounter at that age.

The research doesn’t, however, state whether the sexual encounter was with peers or partners older than them.

That begs the question… Isn’t it about time we all put down the pitchforks and take a seat? It is clearly time to let the sex educators into schools to give advise to our youth before it’s too late.

It’s a fact, whether we like it or not, teenagers are indulging themselves while still very young, regardless of what the law says.

 

Ugandans use lunch breaks more to have sex than a meal, Ethics minister says

Ugandans use lunch breaks more to have sex than a meal, Ethics minister Simon Lokodo has said, warning that “irresponsible sex” is fueling spread of particularly HIV/Aids.

“In Kampala, sex is done without any respect; anywhere, anyhow, anytime with anybody, especially at lunch breaks where people go to lodges for sex instead of food,” Rev Fr Lokodo said.

HIV prevalence has lately been on a rise after years of steady decline, according to official statistics, raising concern that the increased infections are a result of complacence.

Minister Lokodo made the comments on Monday during celebrations to honour legendary Ugandan musician and Aids activist, Philly Bongoley Lutaaya, who died of HIV-related infection in December 1989.

His campaigns, including HIV/Aids awareness performances at schools, helped put a human face to the disease and fight the associated stigma.

It is in this context that the government on Monday organised an event in his honour at Alebtong Primary School in Alebtong District on the theme, “An Aids-free Uganda, my responsibility”.

The Member of Parliament for Ajuri County, Mr Denis Hamson Obua, urged the constituents to protect themselves against HIV/Aids.

Woman travels from Mombasa to Meru to stop husband from marrying a second wife

There was fracas at the Kenya Methodist University (KeMU) after a 32-year-old woman sought to stop a wedding between her husband and a second wife.

Miriam Mueni, who was prevented from assessing the KeMU chapel in protest of the wedding, said she got notified that her husband Cornelius Muike was to wed Purity Nkirote, a police officer on Saturday.

Mueni adds that they live in Mombasa as a family and when she heard the plans of the wedding she decided to travel to Meru to stop the wedding.

“Our marriage was solemnized at the Jesus Celebration Centre in Mombasa in 2003. We have three children. My husband has been away from home for about five days and kept lying to me that he was coming home every time. I never knew if he had planned such a thing because he was even talking to his children”, said Mueni.

Cornelius Muuke and Miriam Mueni in a photograph they had been taken after their wedding in 22, March 2003. Mueni accuses his husband of marrying a second wife yet they are not divorced

She adds that Muike started having an affair with the police officer in 2014 when he joined Nairobi University for further studies.

“She has been threatening me and I have even a message in my phone which she sent me. At some point she even lied to me they have stopped moving together. I’m wondering how they will be issued with another marriage certificate yet we have never divorced”, she said.

According to Terry Kiogora a friend who had accompanied Mueni to Meru, they never expected that he could have thought of getting married to another wife.

“They have been having some issues in their marriage but we never knew he could do something like this. I was informed by a friend that he was going to have a wedding in Meru and after investigating we went to consult a lawyer to ascertain the validity of the marriage certificate and when we came we thought that the husband will feel pity for the children but things have turned out the opposite”, she said.

Kiogora added that as friends they were aware that Muike had a relationship with the cop but every time they asked him about it he always disputed the relationship.

“I feel bad as a mother and because I feel as if it was my child so I decided to intervene and assist this wedding not to go on. If you are married in a church the law prohibits you from marrying a second wife in church, it can only be made under a customary marriage and after consent of the first wife”, she said.

Efforts to get comment from the bride and groom were unsuccessful after a heavy security conduit barred the media and non family members from accessing the University Chapel.

HOW NOW? Couple having sex for first time injured after using plastic bag instead of condom

Two people were admitted to hospital in Vietnam after attempting to have sex using a plastic bag instead of a condom.

Nguyen The Luong, deputy director of Hanoi Nephrology Hospital, said the two students had used the plastic bag because they felt too shy about buying proper contraception, according to the Tuoi Tre newspaper.

Because the bag’s material lacked elasticity and lubrication, they ended up scratching their genitals to the point of bleeding.

The pair were given antibiotics and disinfectants for their injuries.

Sex education is a sensitive issue in Vietnam. The country’s high abortion rate is attributed both to a societal preference for sons but also to couples not using contraception.

In an interview with The Guardian, the director of Medical Committee Netherlands Vietnam said that social stigma can make it difficult for young people to buy contraceptives, and discussing contraceptives is difficult between couples.

Another report in Vietnamnet.vn suggested that students struggle to find adequate information about sex from their schools, instead receiving it from leaflets, online sites and information sharing with friends.

Man who married as a virgin in his thirties, tells his story

It’s not everyday that a married man confesses that he married as a virgin.

Alot of guys are pressured to test the waters at an early age, and those who don’t are mocked for being a sissy. And this is what makes it so refreshing to see a married man, who pens down a letter about walking down the aisle as a virgin.

Myunfilteredng, shares real life stories about Nigerians in their country and the diaspora. Lots of people share their unfiltered, raw and brutally honest stories about relationships.

It is my hope that this married mans story inspires your journey. Read  his letter below as published on nigerianweddinblog:

“My parents gave birth to me in 1983 out of wedlock. They were never married and still haven’t. I was conceived as a result of a one-night stand. M

My father had a reputation as a womaniser. He was sleek and good-looking, but lacked self-control which led him into a lot of trouble. Growing up I saw alot of these traits in myself. I remember one day I went to see him, I was fourteen and he asked me who my bae was. I told him I had none and he asked me, ” At your age I had already started doing things”.

“At the time he was experiencing alot of trouble because he had spent alot of his money on women. I made up my mind to marry as a virgin, to have sex only with my wife. I wanted to keep myself for what God was going to do through me. I wanted a deep relationship with him. I didn’t want anything that was going to distract me and I knew for me, women were a distraction. When I was about 20, my dad called me and sat me down. He told me this si the best advice he would give me, ” You have to be careful with women, I was always with women and still am, but I don’t want you to walk in my footsteps’.

“My dad was sixty when he said this to me. Truth is I was always a ladies man. There were so many temptations with women. It wasnt easy, but god kept and led me.

“Today I am married and walked down the aisle as a virgin in my thirties. Obeying God was very important for my wife and I. We decided to keep our marriage bed undefiled. It was tough, I wont lie, but I made it. This is to encourage those out there who thinks its not cool to get married as a virgin, especially as a man”.

 

Woman pulls, and squeezes boyfriends private parts in Narok

A woman from Kisiriri area of Narok North Sub County has been arrested by the police for allegedly pulling and squeezing her boyfriend’s private parts, leaving him with serious injuries following an argument.

Area Deputy OCPD Charles Ouma said that screams were heard from the man’s house and upon arriving at the scene, members of the public found the man writhing in pain in his privates.

“When the locals dashed to the scene and they found the woman named as Doris Nyamita trying to escape but they got hold of her and bring her to Narok Police station. They also found the man was lying down in great pain and that’s when they realized that he had been assaulted,” said Ouma.

He said that it was reported that the two, though not married, were living as a boyfriend and girlfriend and on the particular day, they were in bed when they argued over their past relationship, prompting the man to push the woman.

“After the man pushed her off the bed, the woman grabbed the man by his manhood and squeezed it hard occasioning him serious injuries as a result,” he said.

Ouma added that the couple had been seen together for the last few weeks and that the unfortunate incident irked the villagers who wanted to lynch the woman.

“The victim suffered serious injuries in his privates and could no longer hold urine after the deadly incident,” said the deputy police boss.

He said the man was rushed to Narok County Referral Hospital where he is receiving treatment while the police are interrogating the woman before pressing charges against her.

“Once we complete investigations, she will face assault charges of causing grievous harm on someone’s private parts. She will soon appear in court,” said Ouma.

 

Dear Men, Here Are 4 Signs That You Have Erectile Dysfunction

No, having erectile dysfunction (ED) doesn’t mean you’re less manly – it’s linked to specific physical and psychological causes. Every man has erection problems at some point in his life, but if the problem persists over a longer period of time then it may be a sign that you have more serious problems.

Watch out for these signs:

1. The inability to maintain an erection
So, you can get an erection during foreplay with your partner, and your performance is great for the first half of the game, but as you go along, your erection begins to deflate. When you’re unable to keep an erect penis until you orgasm, then something is going wrong during the process of your penis filling up with blood and hardening.

erection

2. You can’t get a hard-on
It’s not unusual for a man’s penis to not function from time to time, but a frequent inability to get an erection could be a sign of ED or other more serious medical problems. If you get an erection in some situations but not in others, then the problem is probably psychological. If you are unable to get an erection under any circumstances, then it’s likely the result of a physical issue.

3. Painful hard-on for over four hours
These erections, called a “priapism,” are usually painful and can happen even when you don’t want to have sex. Priapisms happen when too much blood flows into the penis, or the blood in the penis is not able to effectively drain out. Such unwanted erections could result in you not having erections in the future because of permanent tissue damage.

4. Curved or painful erection that makes sex difficult
Of course, penises come in different shapes and sizes and it’s not uncommon to have a curved erection. But some men get erections so bent that it causes them pain or makes sex impossible. Such a curved erection may be a sign of Peyronie’s disease, which is caused by scar tissue forming along the length of the penis and results in warped, painful erections, although the condition usually goes away on its own.

7 Cunning Ways To Show Him What You Really Want In Bed (It Will Turn Him On Too)

The only thing worse than not having sex is having bad sex, but how do you let him know he’s not getting you there? Should you even tell him?

The answer is yes. Sometimes you gotta let him know what’s up! You don’t have to argue about the sex, you can simply show him what you really want. Here are some sneaky ways to show him what you really want during intimate moments.

1. Guide him.
Literally guide him through your body. Move his hands where you want them to be. Point to where you want to be kissed. Push his head down toward your honey pot. Take control of the situation and show him where you need him to be.

2. When he’s in the right spot, make sure he knows it.
Simply put, overdo it a little bit. If he’s handling his business just right make him feel good about it. Verbal praise can go a long way here. He will more than likely be turned on by how vocal you’re being and is likely to work even harder to get you there.

couple-having-sex

3. Show him by doing it yourself.
This won’t work with everything, but for some stuff you can show him how to take care of business by taking care of that business for yourself. He’ll be pretty turned on by it and that should make a good student out of him. When you’re finished let him know to give it a try on you as well.

4. Find a video.
I’m sure most of us, if not all, are familiar with PornHub. If he can’t seem to get the picture, show him a video. This way, he will get a hint of what to do, the way you like it!

5. Role play.
You could literally role play ‘teacher and student’ and instruct him on how to handle business. If you two are the creative types, role play options are endless. You two won’t be acting as yourselves which tends to open doors to try new things while ‘in character’. Don’t be shy, give it a shot!

6. Show him by doing it to him.
Take charge. If you want to try something new be the person to initiate it. Don’t go all dominatrix on him – unless y’all are into that kind of thing – but don’t wait on him to get things started. By showing him how good it feels to him, hopefully he’ll know that he should return the favor as well!

7. Tell him.
If all else fails, just tell him. You deserve to have great sex. You can find a creative way to tell him just to spice things up or you could simply have the conversation with him, but it definitely needs to be communicated, in a nice way!

Forget Cheating! Here Are 5 Other Things That Are As Bad As Having An Affair

No relationship or marriage is easy to build and maintain. There are many other things that can destroy a relationship other than having an affair.

When couples have different values and moral standards, it is bound to bring problems in their relationship. There are certain kinds of behaviours that could mean a total betrayal to the promise of commitment made to your partner.

The truth is, because there isn’t cheating in the mix, most couples experiencing these problems feel they can live with them, but it slowly chips away the foundation of love and trust built over the years.

cheating-man

 

Well, here are 5 other things that are as bad as cheating on your partner.

1. Creating an emotional barrier between you and your partner
Nothing hurts more than that. It’s a huge sign that your relationship may crumble soon, because there’ll be less and less physical contact. The lack of connection could be a gate pass for an affair.

2. Telling lies to your partner
Lying to your partner is never fine and shouldn’t be treated as such. Lies are like a hammer to a wall; they break all you have built in an instant. Trust and commitment are swept under the rug when your partner realizes the relationship is built on deception.

3. Emotional affair
The fact is, emotional affairs are more damaging than physical ones. Firstly, they are very difficult to end because that will mean the end of an emotional support system. Emotional cheating can cause irreparable damage to relationships.

unhappy-couple-in-bed

4. Not putting your partner first
When you really love your partner, you put them first. When couples begin to forget each other’s needs, there’ll be a gradual breakdown of the relationship. Your needs are important, but showing them knowing you’ll always be there for them no matter what is assuring enough. Love is a verb not a noun.

5. Refusing to stand up for your partner
Your partner should be your closest friend. Relationships have crumbled because one partner refused to stand up for the other, especially when there’s some sort of interference from in-laws and relatives.

Prostitute Remains Attached To An Elderly Man After He Dies During Sex

We’ve had strange stories about sex including bizarre toys, people being found in compromising situations and others getting stuck together; but this particular story is one for the books.

A video doing the rounds online shows a dead man’s body being wheeled away, but apparently a prostitute is still attached to it. The elderly man is said to have died during sex.

The bizarre footage which looks to have been shot in China, appeared of Liveleak after being lifted from a Chinese video sharing site. It shows paramedics moving the corpse with the woman still on top on a stretcher. They are both covered but the woman is seen moving though her face is covered.

They were taken to the hospital to be surgically separated before the man could be transferred to the morgue. This is a case of ‘penis captivus’, where the vagina muscles clamp down on the penis much more firmly than usual and people end up being stuck together.

You Know It’s Time To Break Up When…

Relationships are not the easiest things to deal with and sometimes they end up dying slow natural deaths yet we either choose to hold on.
How do you really know when it’s time to break up? Are there valid reasons to run in the opposite direction? If your relationship has one or several of these problems, you may need to end it sooner rather than later.

1. No support for your goals – A major part of a relationship, especially a marriage or one that is heading towards marriage, is supporting each other. If you have a goal that your significant other is not supportive of, you may need to look closely at the rest of the relationship. Long-term romantic relationships generally lead to getting married, but if they don’t want to help you achieve your goals, you’ll be missing the person who should be your number one cheerleader. And they will more likely be a roadblock to your future.

2. No Trust – This is a huge red flag. Trust is one of the most important factors in a relationship. If you suspect he’s lying to you about where he’s been or how he spends his time, he probably is. If you can’t trust your girlfriend or boyfriend, you’re always going to be suspicious, and that will hinder your relationship.

3. Cheating – If you think cheating is a “one-time thing,” you’re more than likely wrong. Cheating is habitual. If you can’t be loyal when you’re dating, you won’t be loyal after you’re married either. The reason for cheating has very little to do with you, and everything to do with the cheater. Nothing you do is going to make him or her stop — that decision has to be made by him or herself.

4. Abuse – If you are being abused in any form in your relationship, you need to LEAVE — NOW. You don’t deserve to be hit, yelled at, defiled or belittled. Relationships demand mutual respect and love, even if you have occasional arguments. Do not think for a minute that you deserve to be abused or that it’s your fault. Find a friend or family member who can help you escape this terrible situation. Do not be fooled into thinking an apology is the end of abuse. It WILL happen again.

5. You don’t share goals – If you want a family and she doesn’t; if he doesn’t want marriage and you do; or if any of your most important life choices don’t line up, the two of you may not be a good match. One of you will always end up disappointed and unfulfilled. You can’t change someone to bend to your will and you shouldn’t have to sacrifice those things that are most important to you.

6. Gut feeling – Listen to your own inner voice. If it’s telling you something is off, or doesn’t feel right, that’s probably the case. Maybe it’s not really love or perhaps you feel like you’re settling out of fear that you will be alone for the rest of your life. Maybe there is some other unknown factor that your intuition is trying to warn you about. We have our intuition to protect us from potentially dangerous situations. It’s best to listen to it even if you can’t see a valid reason right now.

Study: Infidelity Runs In The Blood

According to an article published on Men’s health, Sleeping around runs in the family. Researchers from Texas Tech University surveyed people about their parents’ and their own history of infidelity.

Nearly half of the subjects who were raised by philandering parents admitted to having cheated on a partner—making them twice as likely to stray as those brought up in a faithful family.

The tendency to sleep around is partly genetic, Weiser says. Other scientists have found that you can inherit biological traits, like a certain kind of dopamine receptor, that make you crave multiple partners. 

But she also suspects that your parents shape your expectations for your own relationships.

For example, if your father failed to be faithful, you may conclude that monogamy is unreasonable or impossible. And that belief could turn out to be a self-fulfilling prophecy. If your parents (or his) didn’t forsake all others, don’t worry. You’re not doomed to repeat their mistakes, says Weiser. 

Just be aware of how they affected you. Consider this an opportunity to talk with your partner about your views and expectations surrounding monogamy. Pouring your energy into communicating, having fun, and trying new things together is one of the best safeguards against infidelity, says Weiser.

Inside the ‘city of sex’ where men ‘have three girlfriends’ because there are too many women

Monogamy is the cornerstone of our society, but one global city is bucking the trend with so many women living there that most men have two or three girlfriends.

Dongguan, in south China’s Guangdong Province, is known for producing popular electronics such as iPhones and iPads – and also acting as the Chinese ‘capital of sex’.

Thanks to the one-child policy which operated in China for many years, the country has a massive gender imbalance with millions more men than women in the country.

Local factories running assembly plants prefer not to use men as they find them unreliable and instead offer work mainly to women.

This means the city has many more women than men, with the men taking odd jobs and casual work, leaving them with plenty of time on their hands. And that means time for more than one girlfriend. Some admit they have two or three permanent girlfriends at the same time.

One man told local TV: “It is a lot easier here to find a girlfriend than a job.” The few men who do have jobs at the factories are in an even better position when it comes to finding a girlfriend, because most of the women end up spending long hours at work on the production lines. That means if they look for love, the main place for them to find consolation is from within the company.

The disproportionate number of women has recently led to Dongguan being branded the ‘capital of sex’ with many women still willingly and knowingly involving themselves in relationships with men who already have other partners.

Li Bin, a migrant factory worker from south-western Sichuan Province, said: “I have three girlfriends, and all of them know about each other. Many of my friends also have many girlfriends.”

He added: “There are so many young and naive female workers in the city. Why not have more than one if we can? Look, everyone is here to have fun; if you don’t do it, others will.”

New Twist In MP’s Sex Scandal As Another Man Claims Responsibility

The latest sex scandal involving Juja MP Francis Waititu that made headlines on Thursday has taken a new twist. A 28-year-old mobile phone dealer has now claimed responsibility for impregnating a woman who had claimed that the MP was responsible for the pregnancy.

Waititu was accused by 25-year-old Martha Wanjiru of impregnating her and making death threats after she refused to procure an abortion.

Joseph Njuguna exclusively told The Star newspaper over the phone that he impregnated Martha contrary to her allegations.

Njuguna said that he had been living with Wanjiru in the same house in Githurai until three weeks ago when she left after a disagreement. She had already informed him that she was expectant and that he was the father of the child. Wanjiru denied the claims by Njuguna saying that he was a jilted lover who did not wish her well.

“It is not true. The man wanted to marry me, but I refused. I did not have an intimate relationship with him,” she told The Star.

Wanjiru informed Kasarani police Tuesday that the MP popularly known as Wakapee impregnated her after a 13-month relationship with him.

The 8 awkward stages of flirting

Hair twirling, playful game of back and forth eye tagging, a subtle stroke on the back…what’s your style of flirting? The art of flirting involves a combo of gestures which advertise interest in a potential suitor. There are however different stages in flirting, read the list below

You sit strangely- You go back and forth between sitting with your legs together and crossing them- will he think you’re easy if you part them slightly?

You draw attention to yourself- By offering up things you really want them to know about you- even if they are not true.

You claim to like things you aren’t really all that fussed about- If they like something passionately- suddenly your enthusiasm for it goes up 100%. You see the smile on their face that you agree with them and it’s everything.

You try to be cute- By putting flicking your hair or batting your eyelashes because dainty pretty women always do that right?!

You try to be sensitive- By telling him you have a good relationship with your parents and are great with kids- even though that won’t matter for months or years- if you start dating.

You laugh at EVERYTHING they say- Even if it’s really not all that funny. You dish out compliments like lollipops.

You’re touchy- You get a little bit too tactile and touch him in a way that says ‘stalker’ more than ‘potential date’.

You are nervous- And probably spill something over yourself or spit when you talk- that’s the worst.

 

The rot in schools is a reflection of society’s moral standing, sociologist says

40 Students from various high schools were arrested for having sex, smoking tobacco and bhang in a Nairobi-bound bus on Wednesday. The students were travelling home for the August holiday when police intercepted the bus on Karatina-Nairobi highway.

A female student among the 40 arrested was Friday morning charged with being in possession of marijuana when a thorough search from police found bhang, matchboxes and tobacco hidden in the girls underwear. The driver and the conductor of the bus were also charged with several traffic offenses.

Tongues have been wagging on who really is to blame for the students behaviour with questions such as have society, teachers, parents failed in their roles in raising young adults?

According to Dr. Benair Muchocho, Sociologist and Senior Lecturer at University of Nairobi, society is to blame for who the youth are growing up to become. “The indiscipline of the students is a reflection of what Kenyans represent. It is an extension of what the society stands for whether it is the corruption in the police department, the cover-ups, the elections, it is just a sign of the overall moral decay in Kenya,” he says.

“How are the students accessing the drugs, what is the school authority doing to make sure there is no drug use in the school?” Dr. Muchocho asks. According to him the children begin to indulge in drugs and sex because we as a society have failed them like in the case of a school where it maybe a teacher, watchman, school employee who is the drug peddler.

The information age has also played a big role into the behaviour of our teenagers where the child has free access to anything they want to access of the Internet. The parents also need to stop burying their heads in the sand because, modern day children cannot live the way grandparents live because there are different norms and behaviour. “If you do not talk instill discipline in the children when youth, they will research on sex, how drugs are smoked on their mobile phones and that is how they get exposed,” he says.

40 High school students arrested for allegedly having sex in a matatu

Forty students have been arrested for allegedly having sex inside a Nairobi-bound bus, and smoking bhang and tobacco. The students from various high schools, who were travelling for the August holiday on Wednesday afternoon, were locked up at Kiangwachi police patrol base in Kirinyaga county.

Following a thorough search, police found one with several rolls of bhang, tobacco and matches hidden in her underwear. The ‘Team Cash’ matatu had graffiti reading; ‘Why go to high school when you can’t go to school high.’ Many of the students arrested in the 33-seater bus, intercepted on Karatina-Nairobi highway, were from Nyeri county, said Kirinyaga county Education director Elizabeth Karani.

Karani said she asked the county police commander and commissioner to ensure action is taken against the driver and conductor. “I am urging the security team to be alert, especially this week when schools are being closed for the August holiday, to ensure any vehicle ferrying young boys and girls is thoroughly inspected,” she added.
