  1. The government should embrace sex education as a subject that is taught from primary to high school, many parents shy away from discussing with their children matters of sex education and therefore due to lack of proper education girls end up pregnant and others expose to diseases.

    The highest sexual activeness I’ve seen in four generations.. If self control had a price! They rather pay the price than bank it as an asset.
    Comprehensive sexuality Education has been implemented by organizations like Family Health Options Kenya that influenced meaningful and positive behaviour among teens and youths. If that Youth Action Movement could be implemented with efficient accessibility to youth friendly SRH safe spaces for services, we will raise a very self aware generation.
    As much as we create solutions that we feel are good to reduce thee numbers and positively transform their sexual discipline we may not get to the very root of it. Why can’t they resist risky sexual behaiour? Why are they not exercising safe sex? We cannot tell them stop having sex or have sex like this without helping them understand why they do it in the first place.
    Let’s ask them…

    A changing society that is actively pretending it is not changing.
    A simple example is exposure to the internet. yet parents actively refuse to talk about sex with their teenagers. Or simply say, do not have sex. Who are we fooling?
    Make sex a comfortable subject to discuss with teens them discuss the adverse consequences without making it first and foremost religious taboo. We have to tackle this issue differently .
    Secondly, empower the poor. Government continues to be slow on this part.
    3rd and most importantly, the issues around HIV & AIDS have been placed on the back burner. There are no longer campaigns about health issues on this subject. We seem to have forgotten what the implication of HIV & AIDS are. It is no longer a life sentence but it still is not something to play with. Let people learn how to self test and use protection.

    Sex education.
    Children believe in such fake stories and myths that it is unbelievable.
    A child I was taking care of asked me if she could get pregnant from giving blowjobs – and I later found out she had been really giving them- and believe me I told her she could get an STI then she would really see. And that was a 13-year-old.
    Even as young as that they still assume that quickies can’t get them pregnant etc…
    Children have raw sex most of the time because they touch, get excited, and then have intercourse. The real show me yours I’ll show you mine.
    Children need education and access to family planning it’s inevitable…
    The issue of adults especially men having intercourse with children. This is rape but pretty much common practice.
    Most people have families when they find love. We can’t really wait to be established. I assume I will be established at 40 but then I won’t even have any eggs left.
    Let us just teach children the dangers of early sex and also mind our own behavior around them. They mimic us and if we are drunk and getting laid all the time and it’s all open to our children, then they will also have fun although it’s a sad life but how can they know that?
    Sex Ed, and can parents stop being embarrassed about sex? It’s fun but there are rules.
