I can think of a million and one reasons to live in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. Aside from the fact that the city is a beautiful place to live in and it offers a different culture, there is so much going on there! Port Harcourt city (PHC) attracts thousands of tourists a year, making it one of the most prominent cities in the country in terms of visitor popularity. From the people to the places, from the food to the drinks and from the bars to the gardens; here are Jumia Travel’s reasons why you should make this lovely city your home…even if it’s just once in your life!
1. A Different Culture 
At some point in your life, you will have a need to be exposed to a place that’s completely different from what you are used to and PHC offers the perfect location to not only experience a different culture; but also expand your mindset and learn about how other people live. Almost every local government area in the city has its own unique culture and you can learn a lot about people as you immerse yourself in it.
2. Jobs, jobs, and more jobs 
From large oil companies like AGIP, MOBIL to a list of multinationals, the number of companies that have set up shop in Port Harcourt city (PHC) is absolutely endless. Nigeria as a nation maybe suffering a recession at the moment, but nevertheless, prospects in PHC right now are good. There are plenty of internships and jobs to help you develop your skills and establish your career in your chosen industry.
3. You can actually save 
There is the rumour that PHC is a very expensive city and things are not really cheap. While there is a measure of truth to this, Port Harcourt is hardly a city you would describe as notoriously expensive. The standard of living is still a little lower than in such cities as Abuja and Lagos and aside from that, food items, clothing, and transportation is quite affordable; you just need to know where to go and how to navigate the city. You, therefore, do not spend so much catering to daily expenses and you can save for your dream house or goal.
4. Transportation is easy 
You do not necessarily need to have a car when living in PHC since there are easy and well-organized transport system. The transport in PHC is so great, the commuters are calm and enter their choice of a transport system in an orderly manner. Even better, you can literally walk everywhere. For instance, you can trek from Waterlines to Agip or from mile-1 to Town, everywhere almost close to each other; unlike in Lagos and other metropolitan cities within the country where everywhere is just far from each other and walking could imply suicide.
5. Bole and fish 
You may have tasted it in other parts of the country; you may have liked it or you may have hated it. In PHC, however, Bole and Fish, a popular meal among the locals in the city, is a different ball game altogether. With a diverse and exciting array of this delicious cuisine found literally at every corner of the city– and it is wonderful to have it quite literally on tap wherever you go- it is sure to excite your taste buds and give you a reason to stick around.
6. Marvellous Shopping 
People in PHC love shopping and as such, you’ll be spoilt for choice with boutiques and Malls strategically positioned around town. Your friends will be dying to come up for a weekend, then you can always head to one of the many lounges or bars to put your feet up after showing off the miles of shopping heaven that is the city.
7. Active nightlife 
Nightlife in Port Harcourt is huge. Home to hundreds of pubs and bars, embracing diverse music scenes, PHC is a great night out 7 days a week. A lot of silent places in the daytime suddenly come alive with music and activities that drag night owls from their homes to hubs, joints and hotels. With numerous live events hosted weekly, you’ll be sure to catch your favourite band on one of the nights.
8. The city is of full of wonderful people 
The reputation of the PHC people for being hostile to visitors is misdirected. The city is actually populated by friendly, helpful and open-minded citizens – for the most part – who relish the idea of a more metropolitan and multicultural future for the city.

“Couples who sleep naked have a happier relationship” – Survey

A new survey has revealed that couples who sleep naked have a happier relationship.

The study from Cotton USA asked couples what they slept in at bedtime and then asked them to rate how happy they were in their relationship.

According to the results, 57 percent of those who slept in the nude said they felt happy, compared to 48 percent of pyjamas wearers, 43 percent of nightie wearers and a mere 38 percent of people who wore pants, bum shorts, etc.

Stephanie Thiers-Ratcliffe of Cotton USA said that one of the leading factors for this was that the nakedness encouraged intimacy and openness, thanks to the skin-on-skin contact and the feeling of soft bedding.

Guys! Ths is what happens to the pen*s as you get older, according to science

Our bodies change with age, but how about the most private parts? What happens to Pen.!s when it ages? Let’s get some clear answers.

So, guys, what can you expect to happen to your Pen.!s when you grow older? These clues will prepare you for the inevitable changes.

How Pen.!s changes with age?


When most men are born, their Pen.!ses reach only 4 cm in length! The average size ranges between 16 and 23 cm. Does it decrease in size, when you grow old? Not exactly, but things change. For instance, if you gain much weight, your Pen.!s looks shorter. The fat is located in the lower part of your belly and covers up part of the Pen.!s shaft. However, in your 60s or 70s the Pen.!s can actually a bit shrink in size by some 2-3 cm.

Testicle size

After 40 they decrease by 1 third of their size. Healthy younger men have them around 3 cm in size, while the older guys may have only 2 cm size balls.

Working condition

The performance changes, too. When you turn 40, your S3@.x:’ual activity and the amount of male hormones in the body decreases. In the youth a healthy man may have S3@.x:’ several times a day, in the later age erectile dysfunction may change things for worse. The muscles weaken and the vessels get clogged. It also contributes to weaker erection. So, having S3@.x:’ few times a week is great, when you age.



It greatly depends on the sensitivity of your male organ. Unfortunately with age it decreases a bit, but it’s good for those guys, who come too fast. Now they have more chances to gain control and boost the duration of their performance in bed.


You start losing your head hair with the age, but that’s not it. Men also lose their pubic hair and their Pen.!ses change the color a bit.

Time spares no one, so enjoy your S3@.x:’ life in the  young age, but do not worry, over 80 percent of men maintain their male organs in great working condition even being seniors.

Guys beware! It is dangerous to have s*x in these 4 situations

Is S3@.x:’ always good? There are times when you should stay away from it, and every man should know the reasons not to get busy! This list may surprise you.

List of 4 reasons why not to have S3@.x:’:

Besides the obvious thing – not being the husband of the lady you plan to enjoy, there are other reasons to keep away from intimacy. Here they are.

1. At your bachelor’s party


You are a groom and your friends bring in some girls to have fun at your last bachelor’s night out. It’s the worst possible idea to get busy with a stripper or some strange girl. You have picked that woman to be your wife for a reason. Keep it in mind, when other ladies offer fun to you. You do not want to start your married life with cheating. What you sow, you will reap!

2. Alcohol


Either you or she or both of you are drunk. How much is too much? 3 to 5 drinks can make you less wise in your decisions and less cautious. Consuming alcohol, you become more open for risky things, such as unprotected S3@.x:’. And you put yourself and the other person in danger of getting SDTs (HIV and other love bugs) or impregnating the woman.

Such a situation is highly undesirable. So, if you drink too much, make a rule to abstain from S3@.x:’ with a new girlfriend.

3. At her parents’ house


That’s not the best location for the love games. They may return home unexpectedly. Or if they are home, they may enter her room any time and catch you at it. It’s a very embarrassing situation.

4. When you wish to marry her


She is a V!rg!n, and you have made up your mind to marry her. But you want her so and think: what if we do it now? Why wait for the wedding night? Stop! You are going to ruin it all. Waiting does not kill anyone. Just set the date and you won’t regret it. As waiting double the pleasure on the first night!

These reasons should stop you and make you think. S3@.x:’ is not always a good idea, and it can be dangerous and has the power to ruin your life when done at the wrong time and with the wrong person.
