With the unbridled use of the Internet and the social media, Westerners would think that
sexual knowledge is common and the norm among people in every society. However, to discuss sex in some African cultures can be likened with stealing from the Pope or dancing naked in the church. In African societies, Sex is between a married couple and sacred.
Sex is not discussed casually. Africans believe that decent families and respectable people will not discuss sex or sexual acts. Discussion about sex is interpreted as a sign of poor upbringing, promiscuity and irresponsibility. During childhood, older children
and peers serve as experts about childhood sexual curiosity and questions. Nowadays, with the advent of social media and the availability of technology, sexual information is readily learned.
