Evidence has shown that couples who wait until marriage to have sexual intercourse report more satisfying sex life than those who do the reverse. The degree of sexual damage people receive is mostly dependant on how they were sexually involved before marriage.
Not everyone who has sex gets pregnant. Not everyone who has unprotected sex contracts HIV or other STDs. Yet enough people do repeatedly warn people of the potential dangers.
Sadly, pre-marital sex, which can negatively affect people for the rest of their lives, is not given utmost attention. We need to re-programme the way we think about sex, beyond simply the fears associated with disease.

In December 2015, I received an e-mail from MultiChoice Uganda inviting me and 40 other journalists for a media challenge at Busiika Adventure park.
I did not show up because of pressing issues I had to attend to. When the opportunity struck for the second time, without asking any questions, I said yes, this time. I would not miss it for anything.
When we gathered at the pay TV company’s offices in Kololo at 6am, I had no idea what to expect from this experience. White water rafting is one of the main tourist attractions on River Nile. It fetches the country billions in foreign exchange. We arrived at the Adrift base in Jinja at about 11am. The view of the River Nile looked so beautiful.
It curved gently through the swampy river banks, making the air smell so refreshing and I inhaled deeply. As everyone rushed off to get some breakfast, my attention was quickly drawn toward the sounds of the crashing waves. There, we would go rafting – a high adrenaline sport where several p…
Officials from the Uganda Registration Services Bureau recently presented a final draft to cabinet on the national intellectual property (IP) policy. As cabinet plans to discuss it, players spot some gaps that might impede the much-desired change in the industry, writes ALI TWAHA.
At a time when most companies are leveraging the power of technology and innovations, the theft and infringement of intellectual property (IP) has finally become an issue that government wants to aggressively tackle.
After several consultations, URSB, an institution mandated to register copyright and other related IP rights, have submitted to cabinet a new national IP policy that aims at mitigating some of the concerns, especially in areas of research, arts and technology to stimulate growth.
Abubaker Muhammad Moki, the commissioner, policy development, at the Office of the President, confirmed that cabinet is only waiting for the policy assessment report by their team to examine its likely impact on the indu…
e-payment limited, a Kasese-based startup company, is accusing MTN Uganda and
Bank of Uganda (BOU) for infringing on its intellectual property right,
claiming unspecified damages. The
company, which says it created and patented a virtual space on which mobile
money users can divert some of their savings, notes that MTN Uganda’s Mokash
product has a strikingly similar version of the patented invention. As
such, the company has written to the minister of Science, Technology and
Innovation as it prepares to go to court to plead its case. “I
am sad to report that I have been faced with unjustified interference from the
regulators, particularly Bank of Uganda,” reads a letter from Daniel K.
Byamukama, the managing director of EDAD e-Payment ltd, to the minister of
Science, Technology and Innovation on October 28, 2016. “In
view of the seriousness of BOU’s actions, we have been forced to consider
taking legal steps, but knowing that court matters can take very long to be
resolved, I am…
