SCARY! According to Statistics, 8 Out of 10 Nigerian Men Do Not Use Condoms When Having Sex?

The survey below first reported by Linda Ikeji from the Society for Family Health is scary! Presumably the results would be drastically different if Nigerian-American or British-Nigerian men were surveyed? Not so?  This is scary to me, very scary. Now of course for the intellectuals, cynicism kicks in and we want to know how the survey was conducted, what sample, etc. Nevertheless, I have a feeling this result is as accurate as it gets.

According to statistics, 8 out of 10 Nigerian men do not use condoms. This was revealed by Bright Ekweremadu, the Managing Director of Society for Family Health, (SFH). He said over 1.8billion sexual activities occur in Nigeria yearly, and 80% of them are unprotected.Mr Ekweremadu said if Nigerian men were to use condoms, no supplier in the world would be able to afford the quantity of condoms Nigerian men would need. He said their research showed that young Nigerians between 18 and 34 years in the cities of Lagos & Abuja make the highest use of condoms.

He said many sexually active Nigerian men have several excuses for not wanting to use condoms. Excuses like “I am healthy, I dont have infections, flesh to flesh is sweeter” etc…

He said there are so many cases of sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies reported yearly because of people’s refusal to use condoms. He also said their research shows that the women don’t insist on condoms. – Linda Ikeji

By the way, I am proud of British-Nigerian Maria Okarende and her role here. Maria used to be a music contributor for my online digital magazine, Ladybrille. This is her first acting role.
