Seven Ways To Keep Your Vagina In Good Condition, Young |The Republican News

The vagina, just like other body organs, can atrophy when it’s not being taken care of, or put to proper use for that matter.

In order to make your vagina feel and behave young, here are the seven simple steps to take:

• Stay sexually active: Just as is the case with any body part, the vagina is a “use or lose it” organ. According to an expert in female sexual health and vaginal rejuvenation, Dr. Karen Boyle, as a woman ages, she begins to lose fat in the vagina areas, such that the vagina can start to sag. What to do? Stay sexually active. You need to get stimulation and increased blood flow to that area, otherwise, the tissue and muscle can change, Boyle says. Blood flow through sex and orgasm will help in keeping it lubricated. Plus, if you are not worried about pregnancy, your partner’s semen may have an anti-aging effect because of the hormones, fatty acids, and anti-inflammatory compounds that semen contains.

• Switch sex positions by mounting your man: Sex experts say that when you are always the one under during sex, the way your man pounds at your vagina can cause stretching, because he will the one to control the pace and the intensity of the thrusting, which means he may accidentally push past what’s physically comfortable for you. By contrast, when you’re on top, you’re in control—and “it’s much easier to contract those muscles when you’re on top,” says Boyle.

• Use mild cleansers: Scrubbing the living daylights out of your labia is not only unnecessary, but harsh soaps can leave you dry and irritated down there. The labial tissue is so sensitive, such that a gentle cleansing is all that you need to keep fresh any time.

• Maintain healthy weight: If you are the type that gains and loses weight carelessly, it can make your vulva to flop. According to Boyle, if your weight fluctuates wildly, it may lead to more stretching. And if you’re super skinny as an ageing woman, your private parts can start to look as gaunt as your face, researchers warn.

• Exercise your Kegels muscles: When you exercise the Kegels muscles, it gives you a tighter vagina and, ultimately, better sex. How to do Kegels exercise? Cosmetic gynaecologist, Dr. Marco Pelosi, says, contract your pelvic floor muscle like someone trying to withhold pee, do it for five seconds, relax, and repeat 100 times, three times a day. You can also make Kegels fun by squeezing a few reps in during sex. You can imagine pinching your partner’s penis with those muscles, which helps you target the right spot (and gives your guy an extra, pleasurable sensation).

• Ditch your office chair: For a little extra workout for your vaginal muscles, that is—trade your desk chair for a Swiss ball for 15 minutes a day. This forces the muscles of your pelvic floor to contract, without doing a single squeeze, says Pelosi. “It feels like nothing is happening, but it’s a very efficient way to keep the pelvic floor toned,” he says.

• Long bike rides are not exactly for you: Except you are training for a triathlon, you may not engage in long bike rides. This is because the constant friction of crotch-to-seat contact can pull and stretch your labia, especially if you have naturally pronounced outer lips, says cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Christine Hamori.   (

To Improve Your Eyesight, Have More Sex |The Republican News


You may feel tired and sleepy after a bout of passionate sex. But one thing is certain: you are not likely to have blurry vision in the aftermath of a good sex. So say scientific researchers.

Experts have said that the act of sex sets off a cascade of hormones, which not only trigger pleasure, happiness, and bonding, but also improves the vision by relaxing the muscles in the eye, neck and shoulders.

Specialist in sexual health at the Spire Liverpool Hospital, Dr. Arun Ghosh, notes that sex relaxes the muscles and alleviates neck and shoulder tension.

“Surprisingly, sex might also tell you whether you need glasses,” he claims.

“I’ve had patients complain of poor vision after sex. What’s happened is that, like all the other muscles in the body, their eye muscles have relaxed and are performing at their true ability, rather than straining and squinting as they would normally.

“So, if your sight goes blurry after sex, it’s worth going for an eye test,” Ghosh counsels. (

5 Satisfying Sex Position To Try When Your Partner Has A Small Penis


These little tips pack a big punch.

A true micropenis — 2 ¾ inches or less when erect — is relatively rare. But whether the penis you’re working with is officially micro or just semi-micro, these positions will keep it hot with your differently hung dude. (Maybe even hotter than with Mr. Huge Dick, since penis size can sometimes be inversely proportional to how much of an actual dick a guy is.)

Advertisement – Continue Reading Below
1 Rock and Grind

Get on top and instead of thrusting, do more of a slow grind. Roll your hips, rubbing against his penis, his pubic bone, his pubes, whatever is feeling good for you. If he’s inside you, that’s cool — the most sensitive vag-part is the first couple inches. If he’s constantly slipping out, that’s OK too; just slide and rub across the underside of his shaft, and you’ll both be happy.


2 The Double Down

Get some his-and-hers vibes for mutual battery-operated bliss. Straddle his legs, give him a hand job, then when he’s completely panting for you, slide a P-spot toy like a b-Vibe Rimming plug up his butt. (Ask! First!). He wields a clit-vibe on you, and you can both bask in the wonders of technology together.


3 The Lapping Dog


Doggy is great for the smaller-peened because it gets ’em about as deep as they’re gonna get. Take advantage of the sublime oral skills he’s (hopefully) developed along the way by varying thrusts with oral. After some good hard pumps, he pulls out and goes to work on you with his mouth. Let yourself be completely vulnerable and open, and get lost in the sensations of that amazing mouth of his.

4 The Tight End

Get in a spoon position for anal that’s almost 100 percent guaranteed not to hurt. He gets a tighter fit and you get the feeling of being filled. Plus, if he reaches around and strokes you at the same time, you will also get the feeling of “having an orgasm.”

5 The Silicone Racehorse

Even though vaginal intercourse doesn’t do it for most women, orgasm-wise, there is something so beyond amazing about the feeling of a big penis deep inside of you. If neither of you has said big penis, get your ass to the store and buy yourselves one. Try a penis extender, which fits over his penis and will give him the pleasure of going at it with new gusto. Rub yourself to orgasm, during, and let him watch. Finish him off with a BJ so he remembers that you dig his real parts too.

How To Make Your Woman Desire More Sex |The Republican News


Many couples get lazy with sex! They go into it as a matter of routine. No wonder that it sometimes becomes boring and altogether pushed to the back burner in a relationship!

Yet, sex experts are saying that in order for sex to be exciting and ‘new’ each time, you can spice it up in a lot of ways as follow…

Try new position: Even if both of you have an easier time reaching orgasm in one position (as do most women), you can still try other positions. For instance, moving around during sex, and changing positions has several benefits. It not only helps the man last longer, it also helps increase the excitement factor.

For instance, the woman can get on top, move the legs around and find a good angle. Make it a goal that every third time you make love, you’ll use at least three positions. So maybe two times are fun and simple, but then, spice the third time up!

Tilt your pelvis: For women to reach an orgasm, the clitoris must be stimulated in some way. Normal missionary position sex doesn’t tend to do this. But with one simple trick, you can make it so much better. Encourage your woman to tilt up her pelvis (by squeezing her butt muscles).

This makes the angle better so that when he’s thrusting, he will hit your clitoris. But you also engage his penis because the tilting squeezes the clitoris. You can do this in any position and enhance the pleasure.

Start with a massage: Couples are encouraged to start sex with a massage. Keep some massage oil on the bedside table, or a massage candle, and start by massaging each other’s backs and legs.

The benefits? It helps you relax first. Also, if you massage naked, it’s very sensual, and it can get the libido going. It also shows that both of you care, it helps your bodies to relax, and it helps both of you to calm down mentally.

Play teacher: Just because you’re married doesn’t mean that you understand each other sexually. What feels good to one person does not necessarily feel good to another. And men tend to like being touched very differently than women do (men like things rougher and more deliberate; women tend to like things lighter).

Also, just because something is an erotic zone does not mean that it wants to be touched all the time. For instance, many women don’t like their breasts touched roughly at all, or even handled that much; but when they’re highly aroused all of a sudden, it’s exciting. So, tell each other exactly what to do. The advantage here is that couples may think they’ve lost their libido when really their bodies have just changed and responded to different things now.   (

Nigeria’s Sex Toy Market Booms In Recession, As More People Turn To ‘Jessica Rabbit’ For Pleasure

Image result for nigeria's sex toy market

Kunle Falayi and Ademola Olonilua

In the midst of the biting economic crisis facing many Nigerians, forcing many to go as far as committing suicide, a sub-sector of the Nigerian economy is booming bringing smile to the faces of people lacking sexual fulfilment – married and singles alike.

In a society where people can hardly speak openly about sexual problems, Saturday PUNCH’s investigation shows that some vendors sell sex toys worth millions of naira every month.

A sex therapist and prominent sex toy vendor, Mrs. Iheoma Obibi, explained that contemporary Nigerians are gradually coming out of some sort of “sexual darkness” and this is creating a boom in the market with an attendant influx of fake sex toys.

For the last six and half years, Kemi Fawole, a certified sex therapist, has been dealing in adult products including sex toys.

She told Saturday PUNCH that she sells at least N7m worth of sex toys yearly. It is about the same for actress-turned sex toy vendor, Bisi Ibidapo-Obe, who told one of our correspondents, “I cannot estimate how much of sex toys I sell in a year but I know that in about three to six months, I rake in more than N3m.”

Yet, these two are just a small fraction of the numerous sex toy vendors who now trade in the country.

Every now and then, a new vendor like Japhet Okoromadu enters the market and soon realises how supply of sex toys pales in comparison to the deluge of demands by Nigerians.

One of our correspondents met Japhet Okoromadu, who has just started selling sex toys online about a year ago.

He said, “I sell penis enlargement pumps and vaginal tightening cream as well. Right now, the demand I get for sex toys is more than my available stocks,” he said.

“I get male customers as much as female. Some ladies even chat with men, complaining bitterly how they are suffering in silence, and how their husbands cannot satisfy them. Eighty five per cent of complaints about sex that I get from clients is about not being satisfied by spouses. Unfortunately, most of the women cannot voice out their concern to their partners.” It was learnt that some of these adult products, sell for between N5,000 and N25,000 while premium brands sell for higher.

Fawole also said some of her vibrators are as cheap as N5,000 while some are as high as N150,000.  She said the common vibrators are between N5,000 and N20,000.

In Ibidapo-Obe’s store at Magodo, in Lagos, the cheapest sex toy in her store sells for about N30,000 while the most expensive is about N200,000.

Judging by the volume of sales that many of the sex toy vendors our correspondents spoke with make annually, there is no doubt that the industry runs into several millions.

Crave for sexual fulfilment driving a multi-million naira market

“Why can’t you tell your husband you are not satisfied?” As innocent as this question is, when our correspondents interacted with some users of sex toys, it turned out to be at the heart of the demands that drive the adult products industry in the country.

At 32, Jane Adebola (not real name) has been married for three years. But that was enough time for her to almost give up hope of ever getting the level of the sexual satisfaction she deserves in her marriage.

When adebola shared her story with one of our correspondents, it was not in the coy, carefree banter in which issues of sex are often discussed among friends. She was serious. For her, it was not something to be joked with.

“Before I was married, I was sexually active for at least five years. That does not mean I was hopping from bed to bed, though. But the truth is that throughout that five years, I never experienced an orgasm. I was looking forward to my marriage because then, I knew I would get all the sexual fulfilment I wanted,” she said.

She confided in one of our correspondents that now, despite having a wonderful marriage and a husband that dotes on her, the sexual expectation she took into the marriage has all but waned.

“I realised that the issue of not reaching orgasm is a very big problem. I do reach orgasm, but only when I pleasure myself after my husband is done,” Adebola said.

But Adebola is not alone.

Planned Parenthood reports that one in three women has problems reaching orgasm with their partner, while up to 80 per cent of women struggle to orgasm from just intercourse.

Sex therapist, Funmi Akingbade, cited a report, which suggests that only 29 per cent of married women admit that they have orgasm with their husbands.

But for women like Adebola, the solution only lies in being “bold and experimental” in seeking sexual satisfaction.

Adebola said after suffering for so long and pretending that she was having a swell time anytime she had a sexual contact with her husband, she summoned the courage to tell him one day.

“He was shocked when I told him that he had never made me climax before. He believed that since I never complained, all was well. But we sat down and talked about it. I told him of my intention to buy a sex toy and he was very supportive,” she said.

Few months ago, a courier service delivered a nondescript package at their doorstep. That was the day “Jessica Rabbit” came into their lives.

Saturday PUNCH learnt that there are two main types of vibrators (penile shaped sex toys), the normal one that serves the purpose of penetration and another – Jessica Rabbit – that not only penetrates but also stimulates the clitoris in the process.

Since Jessica Rabbit came into Adebola’s home, life has not remained the same.

“I would never think about cheating on my husband. Today, I have no complaint. What my husband cannot finish, Jessica Rabbit perfects. With so many sex toys available these days, no woman should cheat on her husband just because he cannot satisfy her anymore,” she said.

But many people are not as adventurous as edible household food items still bear the brunt of their husband’s laxity.

One married woman told Saturday PUNCH how she was surprised that her friend was still using cucumber and carrot to pleasure herself despite the fact that she could simply order a suitable sex toy online in Nigeria now.

‘A sex toy cannot break your heart’

Married women like Adebola are not the only ones who are beginning to embrace the use of sex toys in the country.

Rachael, a young single woman and resident of Lagos, who also shared her story anonymously like all the other users who volunteered to speak with our correspondents after much persuasion, explained that she even has two.

She started using a sex toy called “Bullet” in 2014 and has since acquired a second one. According to her, the toys “serve their purpose” twice in a month.

“A sex toy can only break, it cannot break your heart,” she said, a reasoning that underscores why she has resorted to its use.

According to her, since she was sexually active, she could not bear the thought of becoming intimate with a man, whose long-term commitment she is not sure of. Rather than satisfy her sexual urge by sharing her body with someone she could not totally trust, she uses sex toys.

So, her toys “keep the hungry beast fed” while she also does not have to worry about being dumped by a man she has become intimate with.

“The toys don’t get broken easily unless you go out of your way to destroy them. I get 100 per cent satisfaction from them. I had my first sex toy in December 2014 and the second one in March 2016,” Rachael said.

Rachael said even after she began a relationship with a young man recently, she still continued the use of her vibrator, which she said the boyfriend was aware of.

But then, even men use sex toys. There are abundant sex toys on Nigerian online shops made for men. As those for women have the phallic shape, those for men come in the shapes of the female genitalia, made with silicon material soft enough to give the necessary sensation.

Apart from the most common handheld sex toys made for men, sex dolls are gradually gaining traction. Akin, an IT expert and Lagos resident, who admitted to his use of male sex toys, said he is “lucky” enough to have acquired one, an inflatable life-size doll with a silicon adjustable genitalia.

Akin said the genitalia can be adjusted to be anyway he wanted it, tight or otherwise.

He told Saturday PUNCH that after his last relationship ended after seven years, he found it difficult to find love again. He said even though he had had a number of casual sex since then, it has been difficult finding a woman who understands him like his ex-girlfriend did.

He said, “My ex-girlfriend indulged all my sexual desires and knew exactly all the positions I liked. These days, being an IT man, I am in front of the computer most times and do not have time to search for a lover.

“So, I decided to order an inflatable sex doll. Even though it may sound perverted, I would rather hold on to my sex doll till I meet a suitable woman than waste my time chasing women around,” he said.

But of course, like many people who use sex toys, Akin could not even tell his closest friend about his bedroom secret.

A society coming out of its shell

In a society where there is still a conservative attitude around sex, many Nigerians, mostly educated, are beginning to come out of their shells for full sexual expression.

The term “sex toy” does not exactly convey the seriousness behind the problems that force many married women and men to turn to the use of these aids. In fact, sex therapists and the traders who deal in these devices told our correspondents that it would be better to refer to them as “adult sex aids”.

Obibi, who has practised as a sex therapist and sex toy vendor in Nigeria for more than six years, told Saturday PUNCH, “People are beginning to understand and accept that it is important to have a healthy intimate life. Having a successful intimate life with your partner of choice is important and a key de-stressor whether male or female.

“As Nigerians have become better educated on the need for a fulfilled intimate life, they are beginning to utilise all possibilities to make this a reality for themselves.”

Obibi told one of our correspondents that her male customers, most of whom are over the age of 40, spend more on sex toys than the female.

Asked what reason her customers usually give for wanting sex toys and she said it is usually about expressing their unsatisfied sexual desires.

“The over 40s are comfortable in their sexual desire and skin and are able to decide if, what type and when they should buy a sex toy. The younger generations are more experimental in the kinds of sex they engage in but are also willing to engage, to a certain degree, in risky sexual behaviour,” she said.

According to her, apart from requests by her male customers for products that increase the stamina, elongate the penis and delay ejaculation, she gets a lot of orders from women who want Jessica Rabbit.

Obibi said the industry is growing so big that vendors who sell quality products are now having to deal with substandard and cheap products brought in from China.

“The influx of fake Chinese sex toys, which produce odour and have other side effects is something to be concerned about. Yes, these are cheap but are they safe? This is why we cannot really estimate how large the industry has become,” she said.

Fawole also said she had been an adult product vendor for over six years. She said her business started when she realised that almost on a daily basis, she met at least one person battling lack of sexual fulfilment.

She said, “I decided to do a lot of research, armed with the experiences of my friends and many people I had met, I realised I just had to establish an adult store.

“The sex toys are now just a section of my adult store. I sell erection enhancer, lubricants, sex toys, pheromones, educational DVDs, books and lingerie.”

The interesting thing about Fawole’s business is her clientele.

“Ninety per cent of my clients are men who buy them for their wives. Many of my clients are also sailors who travel a lot. I have many clients that are ship captains and sailors. They buy for their wives because they are usually away from home for so long. Also, some military men buy them when they are away from home for too long. They would say it is better for their wives to be with a vibrator than become unfaithful.”

She also explained that some clients she had met were widows who have stayed without sex for too long and don’t find natural penetration by a man easy and need a vibrator to precede the action.

She said the sexual ignorance fuelled by hypocrisy in the society is what is driving the market

“There are times I take some of the clients over the basics of sex. Most of them have very old mentality of sex. It is not about going in and coming out.  We need a lot of education about sex.

“Most of our clients are highly educated and classy people. Yet, their understanding of sex is still limited. We have not even tapped into the market of the uneducated ones.”

Like Obibi, Fawole has had to make use of online stores for the benefit of most of the clients who prefer discretion to escape society’s negative reaction to their sexual choices.

Such society reactions came out when the picture of a woman trended few weeks ago on the social media. The Nigerian woman had apparently gone to a social event with her bag unzipped beside her table. The photograph captured one of people derided.

“That hypocrisy is exactly why our store moved online. Despite that, some of our clients still send text messages appealing that we should not make their information public in any way,” Fawole said.

Price-wise, she said some of her products are too expensive to be stocked and have to be ordered for customers. Yet, Nigerians buy these.

For instance, Saturday PUNCH learnt that sex dolls, which have not become as common as other sex toys cost as high as $1,500 (about N475,000) to be ordered and shipped to Nigeria.

Okoromadu explained that once in a while, he got orders  for dolls from his clients.

“I noticed that the rise in same sex relationships in the country, even though prohibited by law is also putting sex toys in high demand,” he said.

Okoromadu said he had come to respect women who seek his products because he realised that they are trying to stay faithful.

Ibidapo-Obe told our correspondent that women who opt for sex toys should even be applauded because most of them are faithful.

She said in terms of demography, some of her clients are as young as 30 while some are as old as 60.

According to her, if sex toy helps her client stay faithful and avoid sexually transmitted diseases through multiple partners, then it is something that should be embraced.

She said, “Often times, elderly couples come to my shop to buy my products. There was an instance where a man who is my customer brought his wife to my shop to buy a sex toy for her.  He said that he was travelling abroad for a six month course and he needed a sex toy for his wife. He bought a sex toy for his wife and went his way. If it were to be some men with the old African mentality, they would not care about their wives’ sexual needs. But the man understood that there is no big deal in using sex toys.”

Ibidapo-Obe is one of the very few sex toy vendors, who have a physical store.

What religious leaders have to say

In Nigeria’s religious societies, many things are viewed through the eye of religion. This was why Saturday PUNCH sought out what some religious leaders thought about the use of sex toys.

A marriage counsellor, Pastor Rotimi Akintan, said that the use of  sex toys is against the tenets of Christianity.

He said when couples indulge in such act,  what they are saying is that God’s creation is not good enough.

Akintan further proffered solutions for people who are not sexually satisfied in their marriage.

The pastor said, “It is not allowed in Christianity and we believe that it is a form of oral sex or an addition to what God has given you. You need to be able to satisfy your spouse and if either of them is not satisfied sexually, they should talk about it and find ways to remedy the situation. The use of sex toys means that the person is not contented with what God has provided.

“Godliness and contentment is a great thing; so far as you are married to a man, if his manhood is not satisfying you, you should pray to God for help. It is not permitted in Christianity. It is against the rule and it is a sin because it means that the person is saying what God has created is not good enough,” he said.

An Islamic cleric,Alhaji Idris Yusuff, was of the same opinion. He said Islam frowns on the use of sex toys by couples. He said that the essence of sex is to procreate and also get closer.

“As far as the act of sexual intercourse is not between a man and a woman the way God designed it to be and as it was recorded in the Quran and Sharia, it is against the tenet of Islam. Once human beings are beginning to change the things God designs, they are straying away from the preaching of the Holy Quran. It is called Haram and it is a sin. Sex is meant to bring the couple closer and also to procreate, anything other than that is frown upon in Islam,” he said.

Our hypocrisy about sex comes from lack of knowledge – Psychologist

Psychologist and lecturer at the University of Lagos, Prof. Esther Akinsola, told Saturday PUNCH that if Nigerians were given the proper education about sexuality in their youth, there would not be so much hypocrisy about sex in the society.

According to the don, Nigerians shy away from talking about sex openly because of the erroneous belief that it is immoral.

She said, “We have a myopic idea of what sexuality is about. Sexuality is much more than sexual intercourse. Intercourse is just a minute part of sexuality. I have been teaching human sexuality for many years and have been taking part in non-governmental organisations that deal with sexuality.

“The majority of adults I have met at sexuality workshops are still very conservative about human sexuality despite their education. I am part of a team that is tasked with promoting sexual education in schools. Some people believe that when you introduce sexuality education in school, you are teaching the child how to have sex. But sexual awareness should be part and parcel of our children. We need to teach them right from when they are still young.

“They need to know that there are certain areas of their bodies that not just anybody should touch. They must be taught sexual hygiene. For instance, some of us still find it difficult to talk to our female children about menstruation. We find it difficult to talk to our boys about ‘wet dreams’ when they are growing up.  We are being captured by our cultural primitivity.”

Best Time To Have Sex If You Want A Male Or Female Child |The Republican News

Tunde Ajaja

It is a common saying that ‘timing is everything,’ but when it comes to sex, especially when it’s just for pleasure, that phrase may not readily apply.

Pleasurable sexual intercourse can be done at anytime and anywhere, because all that is important to enjoy it in that instance is the consent and cooperation of the other person, and in a favourable atmosphere.

In fact, there are times that it is after the romp in the sack that some couples soon realise the inappropriateness of where they did it. It can be that spontaneous.

Be that as it may, findings have however shown that for couples who are aiming at conception, or more specifically, couples who are desirous of pre-determining the gender of their baby, timing is indeed everything.

In other words, the time of the month they have sex is just as crucial to achieving that goal.

And a quote by Rick Springfield, an Australian author, says it all, “If the timing is right and the gods are with you, something special happens.”

Ordinarily, couples who want to have a child are often advised to have sex about three times a week, especially around the time when the woman ovulates to enhance fertilisation. But there is more to that if couples want a particular gender.

The easiest way to have male child

It should be noted that the sperm released by a man has both x and y chromosomes, while the eggs released by a woman at ovulation have x and x chromosomes. And for a woman to conceive a male, the man must release the ‘y’ chromosome because it determines the masculinity of a child. While the x chromosomes equally determine the feminism of the baby.

However, according to Dr. Rotimi Adesanya, a medical doctor, the ‘y’ chromosomes are more active than the x chromosomes, but they die faster than x chromosomes, which are weaker but last longer.

Therefore, when the Y chromosomes are dead, it remains the X chromosomes, and if it is the woman’s fertile period, the woman would likely have a ‘bouncing baby girl.’

Therefore, what should be done if couples want to have a male child?

Adesanya explained that a woman is more likely to conceive a male if sexual intercourse takes place on the day the woman is most fertile, which is the day she releases an egg and that is usually between day 10 and 19 of the menstrual cycle.

He said, “If the sexual intercourse takes place on the day of the woman’s ovulation (the day she releases an egg), which is the day 14 of the woman’s menstrual cycle, and the man releases sperm, that child is ‘likely’ to be a male. This is because the man’s sperm has x and y chromosomes, but the ‘y’ chromosome that determines the masculinity is very active, so it reaches the egg faster than the x that is weaker.

“That is why it is said that couples who want to have a male child stand a better chance if they have sex on the day the woman ovulates.

However, I must add that it is not 100 per cent certain. It is a game of probability. Some people have tried it and it worked, while some others have tried it and it didn’t work.

“That is why we use the word ‘likely’, just that the probability is high if they do ‘it’ on the woman’s ovulation day.”

He added that such couples still stand a chance of having a boy if they have the intercourse like a day after the woman’s ovulation day, because once a woman releases an egg, it can stay for between 24 to 48 hours. Thus, when the man releases sperm into her the day after her ovulation, the ‘y’ chromosome in the sperm would go faster than the x to target the egg that had been there already.

He said, “So, whether the intercourse happens on that ovulation day or the day after (though advisable on the ovulation day), it is most likely to be a boy. If it is after, it should not be more than one or two days, because when a woman releases egg on that day 14, by the second day, that egg would start degenerating and start breaking down to what comes out as blood during menstruation.

“Impliedly, if nothing happens to the egg like after two days, it will break down and come out as blood because the egg doesn’t last more than two days.”

Having a girl child with ease

Meanwhile, for those who want to have a girl child, Adesanya explained that the best way to go about that would be for such persons to have intercourse like a day or two before the ovulation day, more so that sperm can stay in a woman for two to three days.

He added, “If the intercourse happens like a day or two days before the ovulation day, the sperm would still be there, but because the ‘y’ chromosomes do not last like the x chromosomes, what would be left of the sperm would likely be the x chromosomes because they stay longer. And so, the baby would likely be a girl.”

Meanwhile, given the important role ovulation day plays in helping couples to have a chance of determining the gender of their baby, it is necessary to identify the symptoms that precede or characterise the coming of the ovulation period.

According to Adesanya, such things include abdominal pain, being moody, feeling feverish, because of the effects of hormones, increase in breasts size, vomiting for some as if they are pregnant, etc. He added that increased lubrication of the vagina could also be a pointer, as they tend to feel wet at that period.

“It is just like when an animal is on heat and it tends to move closer to the male animals. That is when a woman actually releases an egg. And that day 14 of the woman’s menstrual cycle could vary by one or two days in some women,” he added.

He stressed that even though those calculations may not be 100 per cent sure, there is high possibility that it works.

Meanwhile, for those who are only interested in having a child, regardless of the gender, some experts have stressed the need for such couples to have sex three times a week, so that at some point, the sperm would be in the vagina either a day before ovulation or on that day.

Adesanya said, “In a woman’s cycle, we normally say they should have sex from day 10 of their cycle, which we call the fertile period; because ovulation itself occurs between the 10th and 18th day of the menstrual cycle.

“But the day that has the highest likelihood is that day 14. The principle is that from day 10 to 14, if sexual intercourse happens, that sperm would be waiting for the egg to be released.

“We also use the principle for those who don’t want to conceive. During that day 10 to 18, they should not have intercourse, until after that because that is when the woman is most fertile.

It should equally be noted that ovulation itself is a part of the menstrual cycle, which is usually between 26 and 31 days, which is when an egg is released.

And according to livescience, an organisation that provides information on health, technology and other related issues, a healthy adult male could release between 40 million and 1.2 billion sperm cells in a single ejaculation.

Notably, they are that many because of the stiff competition as to which among them would fertilise the egg.  (

What A Man’s Favourite Sex Position Says About Him |The Republican News

Many of our unspoken actions simply say something about who we are. If you’ve been wondering how to know your man, let the positions he favours during sex do the talking!


This shows someone who is boring and unimaginative! He loves to maintain eye contact. But, despite those negative ratings, he sure knows how to get results, as he has enough room for any form of maneuvering he desires!

Doggie style

He doesn’t like eye contact and he is not romantic. He loves to dig deep and also loves to dictate the pace. This is how you know someone who is controlling!


He is lazy and would rather lie down there while the woman does the push-ups. He would busy himself with the boobs as the woman sweats it out. But it could also depict someone who is secure enough as to let his woman run the show!  He is also turned on by the visual stimulation — looking up and seeing a naked woman bouncing around on top of him!

Reverse cowgirl

This shows a man who watches pornographic films! He loves great view and gets it his own way! He has acquired too many ideas that he wants to test-run them on you. Yuck!


He loves to cuddle. He wants his woman to feel safe and protected as she lays on her side, taking in the totality of his manhood from the rear! He is romantic and sensitive. He does most of the job, and all his woman has to do is to absorb it!


He is an extrovert. He loves to think outside the box. He gives and receives at the same time! His personal hygiene must not be compromised, however.


He is a summary person! He is not romantic. He doesn’t have too much time for the essentials such as foreplay and other sweeties. He is busy but loves to have his bite, which is immediate and short-time. He is adept at it: he drops his trousers and leans his woman against the wall. Once he is done, he has no time for after-sex cuddling, which most women love! Let’s face it, if you want a romantic guy, you haven’t met one, because he has no time for romance!


He treats sex as a workout! He pushes himself hard, literally, and expects the same of you. He multitasks along the way, if you know what that means! He is a team player who loves mutual efforts! He is determined and confident, with a huge sense of humour. He doesn’t allow someone to bear all the responsibilities, just as he doesn’t believe that he has to carry all the load!


This one has seen it all; and the fact that he is able to persuade his woman to have anal sex means he can talk anyone into anything! He is probably going to leave a wake of destruction on his path. Good luck, girl!

Spread eagle

He is cautious but controlling. He loves to know exactly what he is dealing with. The way he holds on tight and keeps his woman in view shows someone who loves to be in charge of a situation. His woman’s pleasure may not be very important to him, though.


He is laid back and loves utmost comfort. He goes about life with that surprising calm, even in the midst of turbulence. He is easy-going and doesn’t think that he has to break his back doing something he loves to do. He’s got the mentality that says, “Work smart, not hard.”

Downward dog

He is selfish and enjoys life completely at personal level. He doesn’t give much regard before taking certain actions, and he also doesn’t seem to care what the consequences of his actions are. He’s reckless, but not in a fun or endearing way.


He puts others before himself. He finds comfort in giving other people comfort. He’s the kind of guy you want on your team. He’ll never leave you hanging.


He is tough and loves to show it.  (
