We are living in a world where love is hard to find and sex is easy to give!
In as much as we are grateful we are living in the times of greater equality, sex is something that can go wrong very quickly. And when it does go wrong, the consequences can be very devastating.
Hence when dealing with something as intimate and explosive as sex, it’s necessary to take certain precautions. A reasonable man should have certain conversations with his woman before embarking on a sexual relationship.
Consent is a topic too important to overlook because you never want to find yourself in such dubious situation. And with rape stats being what they are, it is necessary to ensure the person you are having sex with actually wants to have sex.
STDs And STIs
Diseases especially sexually transmitted diseases and infections are very real facts of life and there is absolutely nothing wrong in addressing such issues before an intercourse. If you think having that conversation is going to be awkward then imagine how awkward it will be breaking the news of Syphilis to your partner.
Once the issue of STD has been sorted out and you feel you are free to have unprotected sex, another thing that needs to be carefully thought out and discussed is Pregnancy. There is no fun in abortion or raising a child you never planned for. The world has enough unwanted children in it already so it’s either you use a condom, a pill or other options available if you are not ready for a child.
DEFINE YOUR LIKES & BOUNDARIES
Certain people have things that works for them and what works for one may not work for the other, so feel free to discuss your sexual positions that you like and those you are not comfortable with. Because there is no point of having a sexual intercourse if both of you don’t enjoy it.
