Reality show star Doyinsola Anuoluwapo David, popularly known as Doyin, has opened up about disclosing to her mother about losing her virginity.
She shared that she described the experience as both bitter and sweet, and her mother offered her valuable advice on how to enhance her own pleasure during sexual intercourse.
Doyin emphasized in the latest episode of The Honest Bunch Podcast, co-hosted by actor Chinedu Ani Emmanuel, widely known as Nedu, that many parents fail to have conversations about sex education with their children, resulting in their vulnerability to misguidance from external sources.
She said: “When I lost my virginity, I spoke to my mum about it. I said, ‘Mummy, this thing [coitus] did not feel this way.’ And we had a conversation. She was like, ‘Okay, this is what you should do. Do you use a condom?’
“Parents need to create that kind of environment where their kids can open up to them. There’s nothing I cannot say to my mum. I wasn’t enjoying sex for a while and I told my mum. I asked her, ‘I’m circumcised?’ Because I read somewhere that if you’re circumcised, you won’t enjoy sex. And she was like, ‘No.’ She didn’t make me feel bad about it. She suggested things I should do to me.
“So, it [sex education] starts from the house. Parents need to create that kind of environment where their kids can speak to them about anything. At the end of the day, it’s either they’re speaking to you or they’re speaking to someone else.”
