A must read from Dr. Boyce whether you agree or disagree. Sound off.
Given that sex is one of the most natural forces in the universe, I thought I’d explain a few things to you. You don’t have to take my advice, and I don’t know everything. But when it’s all said and done and you are lying in the bed you’ve made for yourself, you’ll realize that the most significant events in your life come down to whether or not you made good choices or bad ones.
Here are five things to consider before having sex:
1) Why are you doing this anyway?
Sadly enough, commercialized hip hop on the radio makes its billions by teaching black men to have sex with any pretty thing with a working vagina. The rule is that if she’s “fine” and she’s willing, then you’d be a fool not to take it. The sad part of this story is that a lot of brothers soon find that a toxic woman, even one with a beautiful smile, can make you wish you were never born. Evelyn Lozada, the violent Sasquatch on Basketball Wives might be a perfect case-in-point.
In additional to women who can be flat out evil and devious, there are others who are walking public health alerts. Everything that looks clean is not. Speaking of which…..
Whether we like it or not this is a very shocking report that shows that we are not educating our youth against sexual disease and parents are totally missing the boat when it comes to their kids having sex. Here is a chilling report that should be a f#cking wake up call to all you absentee parents.

HealthDay News — As many as one in four U.S. teenage girls have had a sexually transmitted disease (STD), many infected soon after their first sexual encounter, a new government report shows. “The high burden of STDs among teen girls reminds us that we can’t ignore this,” said study author Dr. Sami L. Gottlieb, from the division of sexually transmitted disease prevention at the U.S. Centers for Disease and Prevention. “Sexual health is an important part of the overall health and well-being of teenagers,” Gottlieb added. “For too long, we as a nation have been far too squeamish about sexual health issues for teens, but we owe it to our kids to get over it.”

Carry — a Colorado college student who had been in a steady relationship for months — was recently cajoled by her boyfriend into some sexual experimentation.
He wanted to try anal sex, and even though the 20-year-old said she was “OK with the idea,” she nervously downed several drinks before their lovemaking began.
Within 15 seconds, Carry — not her real name — said she was “crying and asking him to stop.”
They never did it again. But experts say that as social mores ease, more young heterosexuals are engaging in anal sex, a behavior once rarely mentioned in polite circles. And the experimentation, they worry, may be linked to the current increase in sexually transmitted diseases.
Recently, researchers at the Bradley Hasbro Children’s Research Center in Rhode Island suggested that anal sex is on the rise among teens and young adults, particularly those who have unprotected vaginal sex.
Experts say girls and young women like Carry are often persuaded to try such sexual behavior for the wrong reasons — to please a partner, to have sex without the risk of pregnancy or to preserve their virginity. But many don’t understand the health consequences.
