A reverend of the Anglican Church, Donald Tulagha, speaks about his life with SIMON UTEBOR.

Tell us about yourself.
I am Donald Tulagha married to Mrs. Beinmo Tulagha. I am a reverend of the Anglican Church and a former Principal of Angiama Grammar School, Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.
When were you born?
I was born on March 21, 1937 by Mrs. Diribolouye Tulagha and Mr. Tulagha Akoru.
How did you know when you were born?
My elder brother, the late A.D. Tulagha, told me. He was educated. He took down the record of my birth. He was also a secondary school principal before he retired.
How many children do you have?
In my area, we do not count the number of children a man has but to satisfy your curiousity, I have 11 children.
Are they all from one wife?
No, they are not from one wife.  Some of them are from outside through lovemaking. We can call them love children. With my wife alone, I have seven.
What do they do?
My children are not doing badly. I have a nurse, teacher, doctor, engineer, etc among them.
Did it happen before you became a pastor?
Yes, it was before I became a pastor. When I became I pastor, I never dabbled into those things again. Before I became a pastor, we were going up and down with ladies.
Is it wrong for pastors to have more than a wife?
From the point of view of Christianity, pastors are forbidden to leave their wives to meet with other women. These things happened in those days when we were fairly primitive. We did not know the implication then. When you have children outside, the problems will be too many. Economically, it is not a palatable experience.
Would you advise any Nigerian to have up to 11 children?
I am advocating that we should limit the number of children we give birth to. The population of Nigeria is so teeming that people find it difficult to make ends meet. If I were to recommend, I would say people should not have more than four children.
What is your take on polygamy?
I advise that people should discourage polygamous practice. To live a fulfilled life and enjoy longevity, polygamy should be discouraged. I recommend one man one wife.
When did you marry your wife?
We got married in 1970.
What kind of drink do you like?
I take only soft drinks.
Do you take alcohol?
No I don’t.
Have you taken alcohol before?
I used to take just a sip according to the Bible, for stomach’s sake. When one takes a little, it will reactivate and reduce rumbling in the stomach and enable the food to digest properly.
You mean it is advisable to take alcohol at times?
Yes, if you do not take it to excess, it is not bad. It is not wrong to drink but when you take it too much, it will weaken the bone system and even the muscles. Excess of everything is bad. Excessive intake of alcohol can make one to become old untimely. That is why those who engage in excessive alcohol become old too soon.
What is the secret of your good health at 80?
If you want to attain good health, you should depend almost solely or wholly on vegetables and fruits. Then eat regularly, not too much. We know that the economic situation has forced people to change the course of their meals. However, it is advisable to take meals appropriately.
What is your view about the standard of education in Nigeria?
The standard of education is falling compared to that of my days. It is brought about by the lack of teacher training colleges, I mean well established teacher training colleges where people go to learn about how to teach. But today, things are muddled up.
What is your advice to married couples to check divorce rate?
The importance of marriage depends on love. Many times people marry because of facial beauty. Marriage should go with love. It is that love that makes marriage to endure. When there is love, couples will tolerate each other. Marriage should be preceded by genuine love; if people marry without considering this, they divorce because they have not studied each other’s likes and dislikes.
What is your most memorable day?
Most of my colleagues who schooled with me in secondary school were not able to get university education. The day I passed through the university was the most memorable day in my life. The day the result came that I had got a degree, I was so happy. I consider it as my happiest day.
Did you undergo the compulsory youth service when you finished from the university?
By the time I finished from the university, I was older than the service year, hence I did not serve. I was issued a certificate of exemption.
One of your children was killed in a mysterious circumstance allegedly by security agencies. How would you relate the trauma you passed through during the period?
Up till now, I am still traumatised. You know when a plant is growing and the bud is removed, it seriously suffers growth retardation. Since that incident happened, I have become heart-broken and all these days, if not because I am a man, no smile will spread over my face.

“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?

Length

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.

Enjoyment

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.

Looks

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

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

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

marry

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.
