10 sex resolutions

There are ten general resolutions concerning sex that all South Africans should be making. Here they are.


It's that time of year again, we're jotting down what we'd like to achieve in the new year.

While the holiday season is still young, here are ten resolutions that all South Africans should be making, which would go a long way towards sorting out many of the problems our nation is experiencing.

Ten general sex resolutions for South Africans

  1. I will never have casual sex without a condom.
  2. I will not cheat on my partner as this also puts them at risk.
  3. If someone says no to sex, I will accept it.
  4. I will make an effort to get a partner if I want one and am currently single.
  5. I will remember that unprotected casual sex can also lead to unwanted pregnancies.
  6. I will alert any of my previous partners if I contract a sexually transmitted infection.
  7. I will respect someone’s right to make decisions about their own bodies.
  8. I will remember that sex is also there for enjoyment and not as part of some game of manipulation or one-upmanship.
  9. I will respect my sexual partners and will not reveal details of our encounters to other people.
  10. I will accept that sex is something that should only happen between consenting adults.
