What They Don't Teach You At School

Sarah Mulindwa, a sex clinic nurse, shares her knowledge of all things sexual.

We discover that there is more to sex than just putting a penis inside a vagina. 

Sarah opens our eyes to a world of sex in this video.

Regardless of what you may have learnt at school, you’ll be pleased to know that there is a lot more to sex than simply putting a penis inside a vagina.

Like most of us, the information you were given was probably of little or no value and built on fear. Usually, along the lines of, if you don’t wear a condom you’ll end up with a baby.

To explore a whole world of sex, Reed Amber and Florence Bark sat down with Sarah Mulindwa, a sex clinic nurse, a know-it-all on the subject, who’s been helping people with their sexual health for over ten years. 

Apart from a penis in a vagina, everything else is just foreplay, right

Couldn’t be farther from the truth. There are so many sex acts that don’t involve both a penis or a vagina or even penetration. Plenty involve one or the other with numerous other body parts. For example, anal penetration and oral sex with either set of genitals.

You just don’t get taught these things at school. Maybe part of the fun is discovering them for yourself.

I’m quite experienced, what else do I need to know?

If you want to enjoy a long and healthy sex life, the most important subject you’ll probably want to learn more about are STIs and their symptoms.  How to protect yourself from catching infections such as chlamydia, gonorrhoea and syphilis. It’s all on the net anyway.  As well as a lot of good information there is a lot of misinformation out there.

At the moment there aren’t enough safety measures in place or policing of content online to prevent young people being influenced in the wrong way.

You only have to look at porn on the Internet and the way women and sex are portrayed. Sex is not always glamorous and STIs can be caught. The best way to protect yourself from STIs is a condom.
