Wanted sex: women's desire vs societal norms

Caroline A. Kambona

Wanted sex or “good” sex is a concept that has never attracted the concern of many programmers, researchers and policy makers. Majority of interventions seeking to address sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRH & R) have often focused on the consequences of what is considered as “bad” sex such as unplanned pregnancies and HIV among others. The tendency to stress problems related to sexuality pose a risk to reinforcing negative stereotypes to sexuality across generations.

Young Men as Equal Partners (YMEP) programme in Kenya has been partnering with young men for gender oriented Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in an intervention targeting young men (10-24 years) in and out of School. This paper reflects on the benefits to young women from this ongoing intervention.
