My home adult sex chart in nigeria
Family support and living with both parents were positively associated with protective sexual behaviours among adolescents and young adults.This study found that a majority of adolescents and young adults in Nigerian Universities engage in protective sexual behaviours.This negative portrayal of sexual actieveness at adolescence (and while unmarried) as “abnormal”, creates a culture of silence and restricts open discussion of sexuality issues affecting young people.This restriction, consequently, predisposes adolescents and young adults to adverse outcomes such as high teenage pregnancy, unsafe abortion, disproportionate HIV acquisition and even deaths [10,11,12].However, the practice of protective sexual behaviours and its determinants among this cohort has received little attention.A review of the literature shows that family structure (that is, living with single or both parents or none of them) is associated with the sexual behaviour of young people [16,17,18].There is a significant gender difference in the sexual behaviour of young people in sub-Saharan Africa [13,14,15].
We found no gender differences in protective sexual behaviours, including sexual abstinence, consistent condom use, and sexual fidelity.
Likewise, the influence of family support on protective sexual behaviours among adolescent and young adults is less understood, especially in the Nigerian context.
In Nigeria, students depend mainly on their parents to fund their university education as there are no students loans, and scholarship opportunities are few or almost non-existent.
Adequate family support and living with both parents are positively associated with protective sexual behaviours.
The study however revealed that about one-fifth of our participants engaged in high-risk sexual behaviour.
