sex ed

the president of tanzania once went on television and demonstrated how to use a condom with an ndesi (banana). 
i once was asked to explain why the NC public schools only teach abstinence. didn't i know that that is not good enough?  sure, i said.
one problem with condoms here is that many men believe that wearing a condom will make them impotent. an unexpected result is that women are more empowered to use female condoms.
while working away in the education office, i'm often present for the random women that step in for an explanation on how to use female condoms.  these Norwegian students, however, were a little mortified:

this was nothing compared to the day i found myself explaining to 3 women, including a grandmother, and two men what exactly "sensual lotion" meant and what it is meant to be used for. sigh.
