          An important but most undermined phenomenon that has ploughed the society for many years is sex and sex education. This phenomenon is so complicated that people have different view about it. These differences bring tolerance in sexuality among some while it creates problems in some other ethnic groups where discussion of sex is a taboo.

Sex desire can lead to sexual immorality which can result to unwanted pregnancy. Most unmarried teenagers who have babies are carried away by sexual feeling and emotional desire. This can lead to abortion, sexually transmitted disease and so on.

          Religious groups and a taboo to the generality of the society consider sexual intercourse between two persons who are not married wrong. It can result to unwanted child, psychological problem for person involved.
