Hey guys, how have you been doing? Welcome to the third and final interview blog post. Are you excited?!!! I know I am.
Our guest today is a writer, vlogger, Feminist, content creator, model, a mental health activist and a voice for change.
She is the Author of 4 books and the PRO for a sex ed group.
She is also a medical student. Well, we happen to have such powerful women don’t we? Let’s dive into the interview.
Q/ Could we meet you?
A/ My name is Adeyinka Atilola, mostly known as Atty.
Q/ What was your first contact with any form of sexual education?
A/ Sexual education, hmm. I stumbled upon a book on it when I was about 9, I’ve always loved reading growing up and I was a very very curious child.
Q/ Where would you say Nigeria is at with sexual education?
A/ Honestly, we are nowhere near anywhere. We are stagnant, silent.
People continue to inherit the silence of their ancestors about sex ed and it is sad.
Q/ A lot of us feel weird with a lot of sexually explicit contents, like movies or books. Do you still look away or skip on sexual content on the TV?
A/ No way. what is life without a little smut? Winks
Q/ From your bio, you are affiliated with a sex ed group, what would you say is your reason for being involved in that?
A/ Well, at first it started as me just wanting people to learn new things about their body but now it has grown into me wanting people to learn new things about not just their bodies but the bodies of their partners because I’ve realized a lot of people know next to nothing.
Q/ Do you think there’s any relationship between our current sexual crimes pandemic and our level of sex education?
A/ Yes. If we were educated more about these things, we wouldn’t believe taking it forcefully is a good way to learn about it.
Q/ What is your opinion on sexually active teenagers? To encourage or dissuade and why?
A/ I think this generation needs to focus more on safe sex rather than abstinence because that doesn’t work anymore. If you are going to do it anyways, you might as well be educated about it so you don’t make mistakes you’ll regret forever.
Q/ Humour me, what would you say is your favourite part of sex?😉
A/ Lol. No comment.
Of course 😂😂😂. Moving on…
Q/ Any particular aspect of sex that you feel is always misunderstood or misrepresented?
A/ Every part of it is almost always misunderstood, it should be more than just a hump hump. People need to actually learn to enjoy it without rushing to the finish line. You’ll get there, enjoy the ride. If you know what I mean.
Q/ What do you think is the way forward with sex Ed in Nigeria?
A/ Life would be so much better here if we started speaking about sex more often and just stop treating it like something that should be kept in the dark because like it or not, these things happen.
