Ghanaian neo soul vocalist/songwriter Jane Awindor, better known by her stage name Efya believes adolescence sex education is a collective responsibility of individuals, groups and parents in the society.
According to her, issues relating to the youth and sex in Ghana is seen as ‘taboo topic’ in the Ghanaian society since parents and individuals feel reserved to educate their children on the best ways to have sex.
“Because of our tradition, we shy away from sex, but the young people are having sex and some of them are having unprotected sex,” Efya said.
Speaking on 3FM, Thursday, Efya said the youth must be educated on the safest ways to have sex without having to endanger themselves.
“I feel like a lot of the young girls should also be spoken to about getting on the pill. It doesn’t fully prevent pregnancies but it’s the most efficient that has been certified.”
On when she had her first sex talk, she revealed she had hers at the age of 16.
