hormone expert, Alisa Vitti has explained the key to satisfying one’s
partner sexually and why 3 p.m. is the ideal time for maximum mutual
enjoyment of heterosexual sex.
Given that hormones have huge
implications on one’s sex life, as well as the feelings you experience
afterwards, Vitti states that these hormones peak and valley throughout
the day, and synchronizing yours with your partner’s could lead you to
even more enjoyable sex than ever.
Explaining why 3 p.m is the best time to have sex, Vitti in an interview with the DailyMail said
that for women, this is when the hormone cortisol peaks, and brings
with it energy and alertness. At the same time, men have high levels of
oestrogen, which makes them more emotionally present during sex.
the author of the hormone guide, ‘WomanCode’, the key to satisfying sex
is for partners to find a way to synchronise their libidos.
good time for sex is early to mid-morning when men’s testosterone—a
hormone they produce during sleep—is highest. “Men are more interested
in initiating sex during this window and are more capable of a better
sexual response,” Vitti says.
But 3 p.m may require some
organisation, given that most people are at work around that time,
reducing the possibility of sneaking off for a quickie. However, on the
weekends, you can try planning in sexy times for 3 p.m and then just do
it whenever you fancy during the week.
the sex education debate lingers on in Nigeria as some think it ideal
for teenagers while others believe it is immoral.
There have been
recent concerns raised by some parents who are worried about the way sex
education is being taught in schools, while teachers feel it will guide
children whose early exposure to technology makes them vulnerable.
agitating debate is a result of some parents’ discovery that a Social
Study textbook for junior secondary schools recommends masturbation as a
form of sexual abstinence.

for Universal Basic Education 7 (JSS1)” identifies masturbation as a
measure by which teenagers could avoid pre-marital sex, The Nation

pleasure and develop closeness without sexual intercourse” also mentions
kissing, touching, hugging, mutual masturbation, companionship, sharing
inmate’s thoughts, feelings, sharing fun, sharing sadness and joy as
well as supporting each other.
After the public’s attention was
alerted to the content of the textbook on social media, many parents,
guardians and educationists condemned the book’s position on the matter,
describing it as ‘unwholesome and unhealthy’ for teenagers. They also
argued that the book’s prescribed means of abstinence were immoral.
In reaction, some parents, under the aegis of the Association of Concerned Mothers further staged an awareness protest in Lagos. According
to the parents, it is unfair of the government to have introduced a
topic such as “Sex and Sexuality Education” without due consultation
with parents. They, therefore, called for its holistic appraisal with a
view to either abolishing the book outrightly or deleting those aspects
considered unhealthy for youngsters.
In a statement, the group
threatened to sue the Lagos State government. Convener of the group,
Adesuwa Onyenokwe, warned the government not to treat the issue lightly,
adding that parents were ready to storm the Office of the Governor in a

the existence of the textbook which encourages immoral activities in its
curriculum. According to the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of
Education, Mr. Adesina Odeyemi, though the ministry was aware of the
textbook in question, it was not part of books reviewed and approved in
the year 2013. He said the government was already collating books from
interested publishers for another round of review and approval later in

under Social Studies, Civic Education, and Home Economics.
