Popular relationship and s*x therapist, Funmi Akingbade, has revealed in a new article some of the facts about s*xuality that Nigerian couples should about. It’s an interesting one!
Since the inception of this column, I have been able to discover lots of information that will enhance the s*xual awareness level of the married couples out there. In spite of this, I discovered there are a whole lot of untapped information that we have yet to unravel when it comes to s*xuality, s*xual behaviours and s*xual activities among married lovers of all categories.
So, in today’s article, I am going to enumerate some of these facts newly discovered by research and 5ex therapists all over the globe.
Have a wonderful time reading.
1. Many couples have been asking what and what they can do to have the best of a healthy sperm cell, as regards the volume, viscosity, and counts. To really make more healthy sperm, it’s been discovered that mere regular exercise does the job. Married men who exercised at least 15 hours a week had up to 73 per cent more sperm than the ones who never did.
2. Sperm make up only five per cent or less of your semen. It’s got amino acids, protein, sugar, and minerals to nourish the sperm cell.
3. I have lots of couples who have told me that they reached orgasm and when they expected they would ejaculate, nothing would come out. They have asked me what they could do in this situation.
If nothing comes out when you climax, semen could be going into your bladder. Although this is not dangerous, I tell couples to either see a doctor or a specialist called a urologist, especially if you’re hoping to become a dad.
4. Most men from the age of 35 and above produce about 3/4 of a teaspoon (of sperm) at a time, less than a typical dose of cough syrup. But husbands who are very well hydrated or who have gone a long time without an orgasm could make more.
5. When couples put it on wrongly, this happens most times especially when couples may be a little distracted when handling condoms. I always advise couples to take a few seconds to make sure everything is in place, though. Most often, couples wear the condom inside out and then turn it over, whereas it should be the other way round.
6. The second and third most common mistake is putting it on too late and taking it off too soon.
7. When it comes to condom, size matters. Regular-size condoms will be fine for most husbands. It’s important, though, to find a condom that fits well and that’s not too short, too tight, or too big. A condom can only protect what’s covered. One that’s too short could allow diseases to be passed on. A condom that’s too big could slip off in the heat of the moment also. I always tell couples to always know what’s right for the husband. If a husband measures more than seven inches long, such husband may need a larger size.
8. Many couples use Vaseline or a pinch of baby oil as a form of good lubricant in conjunction with the condom. But it has been discovered that oil-based lubricants like petroleum jelly and baby oil damage condom. It is better to use only water-based or silicone-based lubricants like K-Y jelly, or even water or saliva. And if you’re concerned about getting it right, buy a condom that’s already lubricated.
9. I need to also let the married couples know that all condoms do not give spouse the same amount of protection. The three main kinds of condoms – latex, polyurethane, and animal skin (lambskin) – help to prevent pregnancy. But protection from disease is never guaranteed. Organic or animal-skin condoms are often made from the intestinal lining of sheep. This won’t prevent sexually transmitted infections. Viruses can get through tiny holes in them, even though sperm can’t. Latex condoms are the most popular and usually the most inexpensive. Polyurethane condoms are good for people with latex allergies. They are thinner but tend to feel looser.
For couples who are looking for the best form of family planning method without the use of synthetic drugs, condoms have been found to be the most popular form of birth control. As a matter of fact, condoms have a lot going for them. They’re easy to use and find and you don’t need a special prescription.
Plus, the condom is the only form of birth control that lowers the risk of pregnancy and s*xually transmitted diseases. They are the second most popular contraception behind the birth control pill.
