Like you need more reasons to have sex, anyway, if you’re in the market for more excuses cleverly disguised as reasons. When relationships gets difficult or unbearable, one of the first thing to go is the sex, they become far and in between.
Huffington Post carried out a survey amongst the married readers how many times in they have sex in a week, and it affects their life in general. From the survey, here are 13 reasons why you should have sex with your partner daily, as compiled by Kelsey Borresen.
1. It provides some much-needed couple time.
“My husband and I have sex every night because it’s a moment in the day that is just about the two of us. We are parents to a toddler, so when we lay him down for bed each night, we can then spend the rest of the night expressing how we feel about each other physically. Having sex allows us to be passionate, to show affection and we enjoy pleasing each other.” – Christie M. of Arkansas; married 3 years
2. It leads to more PDA outside of the bedroom.
“We’re very physically expressive with one another, even when we’re not having sex. We hold hands a lot, he slaps my butt when I’m working in the kitchen, I nuzzle his neck when he’s working on research papers at the desk.” – Jesse N. of Ontario, Canada; married less than one year
3. It can be a workout if you do it right.
“When you have four kids and no time, sex is the best exercise.” – Tera M. of Oklahoma, married less than one year
4. It gets you out of your head for a little while.
“Sex for me, and now for my husband since we’ve gotten together, is a complete escape from reality. We are both very much into role-playing and it’s such a wonderful feeling to not have to be me for a while, to completely shut off from our crappy day-to-day existence and strictly be about ourselves and our enjoyment.” – Sara C., of Panama City, Florida; married one year
5. It builds trust.
“New positions and sexual frontiers take a lot of trust in your partner to not screw it up, and that kind of trust is best earned after several years of personal and joint bodily exploration.” – Kristena M. of Richmond, Virginia; married 10 years
6. It’s a way to connect without speaking.
“Sex is a vital part of marriage. It brings couples together in a way that other things don’t. What I mean is that it promotes togetherness, snuggling and cuddling, and it’s a way to connect without words.” – Teresa F. of Nashville, Michigan; married 37 years
7. You might end up arguing less.
“We know when something is off with each other. And most importantly, we don’t fight, argue or bicker! We sit down and talk things out. Staying connected like that helps us communicate better outside of the bedroom.” – Libby S. of Indianapolis, Indiana; married 2 years
8. It forces you to get creative.
“Being intimate so often, and sharing what each person needs and wants allows the freedom of creativity. There is no position or situation either of us has ever denied the other. This makes us each feel more and more comfortable to share [fantasies] or point out a hot girl or guy, and say what we’d like to do with them in bed.” – Arlene B. of Monterey, California; engaged for 3 years
9. It’s easier to schedule than a formal date night.
“I think it’s the easiest way to have some romance since we really don’t do date nights or vacations alone. Plus, I know my husband enjoys it.” – Emily D. of Pleasanton, California; married 12 years
10. One word: Orgasms.
“The benefit for me is that it feels simply amazing. I also love to see how my husband gets lost in the moment. Being able to see that level of complete satisfaction on his face is so satisfying to me.” – Stacia L. of Texas; married 11 years
11. It improves self-esteem.
“It has brought a new level of happiness for me personally, and has helped my self-esteem knowing that after two kids, my husband still thinks I’m sexy.” – Karri H. of Alaska, married 6 years
12. It’s a guaranteed mood booster.
“He sings in the shower after morning sex, nearly every time. This is all the proof I need that sex is a mood enhancer for him. And I’d like to think that good mood carries over into other parts of his day. I love knowing that I’m the reason he’s smiling at work.” – Jesse N. of Ontario, Canada; married less than one year
13. If you use it, you won’t lose it.
“If sex is such a large part of your routine and a big priority, it never becomes low priority or gets weird or awkward. And you won’t have to worry about how to resume or reconnect. Just don’t ever stop doing it!” – Lara G. of Austin, Texas; married 24 years
Political thugs have allegedly chopped the hand of an Independent National Electoral Commission’s officer in Igbo-Etche area of Etche Local Government Area of Rivers State, in the supplementary legislative poll, The Punch reports.
The second officer to the victim was abducted by the thugs and has not been rescued.
The victim whose name has not been identified as of press time was taken to the INEC headquarters in Port Harcourt drenched in his blood.
More details later…
According to an eyewitness, Akin, reported the story;
“This happened this evening at Williams street, Bakery bus stop in Aguda Surulere, Lagos. This woman was beaten and disgraced for laying false allegation against a man that he stole a phone from her.
“Meanwhile this woman was on already on okada running with the man’s phone while they had started carrying out jungle justice on the man, already in coma, before someone who actually saw what happened stopped her from escaping.”
Few days ago, a little girl had been allegedly stoned to death by her stepmother in Wadata area of Makurdi, Benue State.
Khadija pictured above in Hijab is the wicked step-mother, allegedly conspired with two other people to stone the little girl to death. Khadija is married to the deceased’s Father, Abdulraheem who is an electrician.
According to a source who made the disclosure, the baby who had been crying uncontrollably demanding to see her mother who was said to have left her father (Abdulrahman) a few months ago, suddenly went missing from her father’s house on Tuesday and all efforts to find her failed.
An eyewitness disclosed that her remains were later found on Wednesday at an uncompleted building near their residence at the Wadatta area of Makurdi, Benue state.
It was gathered that the child’s mother had separated from Khadijah’s father after which he went and married another woman, who is now suspected to be behind her murder.
After much interrogation, Khadija reportedly confessed to stoning the little girl to death but didn’t explain why. She is currently in Police custody and would soon be charged to court.
Nigeria is not the world’s second-largest producer of rice as recently claimed by the Buhari administration.
Presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu, made the claim on February 18 while addressing university students in Abuja.
“As I speak to you now, Nigeria just achieved the record of the second largest producer of rice in the world. The rice revolution just started a year ago,” Mr. Shehu, senior special assistant on media to President Muhammadu Buhari was quoted by The Cable as saying.
Mr. Shehu later defended his claim on Twitter, and cited CNN as his source.
Coming at a time of severe economic crisis, the comment appeared aimed at reassuring an increasingly disenchanted public.
But that claim is entirely false, as Nigeria is not even amongst the world’s top 10 producers of rice, an examination shows.
In November 2016, the Minister of Agriculture, Audu Ogbeh, said Nigeria’s rice production level stood at 3.5 million metric tonnes, while the country’s consumption stood at seven million metric tons.
In calculating Nigeria’s production output, Premium Times will rely on statistics from the Food and Agriculture Organisation, an agency of the United Nations that tackles hunger around the world.
In addition, an unpublished data for rice production from the National Bureau of Statistics was obtained.
This assessment will also rely on data provided by the United States Department of Agriculture, which tracks rice production outputs across the world. The USDA ranking is updated monthly.
In its 2016 estimates, the Food and Agriculture Organisation projected that Nigeria will produce 2.9 million metric tonnes, which it described as being “up slightly” from 2015 figures.
The FAO data from 2015 showed that Nigeria produced 4.8 million metric tonnes of rice paddy. This placed Nigeria at number 17 in the top 20 producers’ ranking.
The NBS data exclusively seen by this newspaper showed that Nigeria produced 7.8 million metric tonnes of rice paddy in 2016, up slightly from 7.5 million in 2015.
The 2016 data produced by the USDA ranks 78 countries, according to IndexMundi, a website that collates, ranks and republishes statistical data from original sources.
Nigeria is missing from the list’s top 10 rice-producing countries of 2016. This category has China, with 146.5 million metric tonnes, at the top, and Japan —with estimated 7.8 million metric tonnes— at the bottom.
The second position is occupied by India, which produced 106. 5 million metric tonnes that year. Other Asian countries that dominate the list include Indonesia: 36.6 million; Bangladesh: 34,5 million; Vietnam: 27.8 million; Thailand: 18,6 million; Myanmar: 12.5 million and the Philippines: 12.5 million.
Brazil, at number nine, is the only country outside Asia in the top 10 rice producing countries.
On this list, Nigeria stands at number 18, with a production output of 2.7 million metric tonnes for 2016.
Although this is lower, the bureau of statistics figure—7.8 million metric tonnes – is still a far cry from what is needed to surpass the Asian countries.
Even where the 7.8 million metric tonnes is used for this ranking, Nigeria would at best rank 10th.
Mr. Shehu did not respond to a request for clarification. But he said on Twitter on Monday that he based his assertion on a report by CNN.
To buttress his point, Mr. Shehu said Nigeria had recently become a major exporter of grains to other African countries.
“Don’t forget that since October last year, Nigeria has been feeding many parts of West Africa, North and Central Africa,” Mr. Shehu said. “Many of these countries have been shopping in Nigeria for rice, sorghum, sesame and millet.”
He said the government had started collating figures to establish Nigeria’s rice production output and will make its conclusion public.
It is not clear whether the figure he was referring to is the NBS’ 7.8 million metric tonnes, it was obtained.
Mr. Shehu’s claim was roundly rejected on social media, with many users pointing at the irony of Nigerians paying more for a product that should be abundantly available.
From a maximum N10,000 barely three years ago, a 50 kilogram bag of rice now sells for above N20,000 across the country, according to Rice.com.ng. Only in January 2016, the rice retailer sold the same quantity for N12,500 or less across the country.
At Jumia, a 50 kilogram bag of rice retails for as high as N25,000.
Richard-Mark Mbaram, an agricultural economics expert, said Mr. Shehu’s “claim cannot be substantiated in actual fact.”
Mr. Mbaram, editor of Agro Nigeria, an online-based platform with primary focus on activities in the agricultural sector, also agreed that Nigeria is yet to meet its consumption demands.
“We’re not even producing enough to feed ourselves,” Mr. Mbaram said. “Saying we’re number two is dangerous as it could make those tasked with addressing the challenges become complacent.”
He said the focus should be on improving Nigeria’s average output per hectare rather than making “claims that will only distract us from addressing challenges in the agricultural sector.”
For example, Mr. Mbaram said budget estimates for agriculture stood at N92 billion, an amount he said could not even fund research in other climes.
“We’re saying we want to diversify from oil because its prices are dwindling, yet we budgeted N92 billion for agriculture which is the sector that everybody agrees the focus must shift to,” he said.
Social media users also circulated a screengrab that depicted the CNN broadcast Mr. Shehu was probably alluding to. In the broadcast, the station showed Nigeria’s production output at 2.7 million metric tonnes; consumption placed at five million metric tonnes; import stood at two million. The data was also sourced from USDA/IndexMundi.
The USDA/IndexMundi ranking showed Nigeria as the second-largest importer of rice in the world. In 2016, the country imported two million metric tonnes, behind China at five million metric tonnes.
It is also unclear whether the presidential spokesperson mistook Nigeria’s import ranking for production output.
Mr. Shehu said: “Nigeria just achieved the record of the second largest producer of rice in the world.”
Available figures show this claim to be demonstrably false.

Looking very beautiful and unassuming, four-year-old Adamu Rukayya cuts the image of a vibrant, young girl. And as expected of children of her age, she would always join her friends in the neighbourhood to go to school and play around the house during their leisure.
But things took a horrible turn for Rukayya on October 6, 2016 when she took ill and her parents took her to a private hospital where she was (allegedly) wrongly diagnosed and treated for a wrong ailment. Unknown to her parents, that was the beginning of a pitiable experience.
The wrong diagnosis, according to her uncle, who identified himself simply as Abubakar, led to serious complications such that one of her legs had to be amputated. And since then, she moves about with the aid of crutches.
Notably, one question the little girl had been asking everyone who cared to listen to her is, “Where is my leg?” Abubakar added that little Rukayya, who apparently does not have full understanding of what had become of her leg, still tells everyone that she wants her leg back.
The parents of the little girl had become too depressed to talk about the incident, but Abubakar in an emotion-filled narrative, told Saturday PUNCH that when Rukayya complained of headache that fateful Thursday, the parents simply took her to Salama hospital, which was like their family hospital.
According to him, the girl was treated, she was given some drugs and was discharged to go home. But two days later, her health condition was worsening, thus, they took her back to the hospital and she was admitted.
Abubakar, whose account was further amplified by the founder of Global Initiative for Women and Children, Mrs. Hafsat Mohammed-Baba, who had taken the matter up and shared the story on the organisation’s Facebook page, explained that when the girl was admitted, the parents were told that transfusion would be done through one of the veins in her leg because they said they could not find any (vein) on her hands.
But after the transfusion, he said the leg became swollen and when they raised the concern, they were simply told to take the girl home, raise the leg affected up and administer “ice therapy” on her. According to Abubakar, the transfusion done through the girl’s leg was the beginning of the tragedy.
Mohammed-Baba said, “When that didn’t work, Rukayya was taken back to the hospital on October 12 where the parents met the hostile staff, and when they examined the leg again, they found out they could not handle the case anymore, so they (the parents) were referred to Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital at Shika.”
She explained that the girl was immediately taken to the emergency room of the hospital, where the doctor in charge examined the leg and told the parents the leg was already infected and might be amputated to prevent the infection from spreading. He however assured them the hospital would do its best to salvage the situation.
Unfortunately, there was no improvement, thus, the following day, the leg was amputated.
Meanwhile, according to the test conducted on the girl at Salama hospital, the parents were told that Rukayya is a sickle cell carrier, thus when the parents got to ABUTH, they also told the doctors on duty the girl was a “sickle cell carrier”, thus, she was admitted among other SS patients.
But by the time another test was conducted on her to ascertain her genotype, it was revealed that she is AS and not SS as they were told at Salama hospital.
Abubakar lamented that if not for the wrong diagnosis in the hospital, the little girl would still have her two legs intact. He stressed that till date, the family had not heard from the hospital, and that instead of showing concern and taking responsibility for their action, they had even denied giving the girl blood transfusion on her leg.
Since then, the little girl has been constrained to use crutches and she has resumed schooling, but not without asking for the whereabouts of her leg.
Worried by the development and with no clear understanding of what happened, Rukayya, who is in Nursery Two, keeps asking her parents why they took her to the hospital to have her leg “removed,” thus, she keeps asking for her leg, especially when she sees her friends playing around the compound or when she sees them walking the way she used to.
When our correspondent spoke to Rukayya on the phone on Friday morning, she sounded feeble, and all she could say was “Hello…my leg.”
“She makes us cry, but we leave everything to God,” Abubakar said, adding, “Up till now, we’ve not heard anything from Salama hospital, and they knew about what happened. The little girl has resumed school and she uses crutches now. When they brought the crutches to her initially, she said she wouldn’t use them. She said she wanted her leg back. Sometimes she asks, where is my leg, and that makes everybody cry.
“Salama hospital is the cause of this, but we have been admonishing the parents to take heart. The hospital is not very far from their house, but they couldn’t even come to see the girl or show some sympathy, maybe because they know the parents are not rich and they cannot make noise about it. That is why they are not showing concern. But we appreciate the founder of GIWAC for taking up the matter.”
Responding to the allegations of wrong diagnosis, the Manager of Salama hospital, Mr. Kehinde Adetunbi, told our correspondent on the phone that the information being circulated about the incident on the social media was false. He however directed the doctor who attended to the girl in the hospital to talk to our correspondent.
The doctor, who would not disclose his name, said the blood transfusion was on the girl’s right hand and not on her leg. He maintained that the girl is a sickle cell carrier, as revealed by the test conducted on her in the hospital in 2014.
He said, “I was the one that admitted and referred her. She had been admitted several times in the past with recurrent history of low blood level, because she is sickle cell. When she was brought in, she had 16 per cent blood level, which was life-threatening. That was why she had to be transfused. The reason for the referral was that she was having abdominal pain. And that is what is on her referral note.
“By the time they got to Shika, they noticed that she had osteolysis of the leg. They wanted to do a debridement (the removal of damaged tissue or foreign objects from a wound) and the father refused. So, it took them three weeks before they went back for the surgery. By the time they went back, the leg had become gangrenous (a type of necrosis caused by a critically insufficient blood supply), so they had to do a full amputation.
“It is not unusual for SS carrier to have occlusion (blockage) of blood vessel, especially the veins and arteries that supply blood to the leg. What they did was a distortion of medical information possibly to get public sympathy. These are known complications of sickle cell.”
On why the hospital had not contacted the patient since the incident, Adetunbi said the hospital was not in the know of what happened eventually and that it was later they got to know through the social media that she had been amputated.
Meanwhile, Mohammed-Baba said her organisation had filed a petition on behalf of Rukkaya to the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El Rufai, the state Commissioner of Police, Speaker of the state House of Assembly, the elected members representing her constituency (Basawa constituency) in the state Assembly and the chairman of her local government (Sabon Gari).
She also called on concerned bodies to look into the case, while calling on the Nigerian Medical Association to set up a committee to investigate the incident.
She added, “If the hospital is disciplined accordingly, it will serve as a deterrent to others because people do anything and get away with it. All (private) clinics should be checked to see whether they have licence to operate or not, because it has to do with human life.
“There could be other victims of such out there, but we know about this because this man came out to talk. That is why I want to follow it to its logical conclusion. We will take up the matter. And that girl deserves adequate compensation.”
As of the time of filing this report, our correspondent had yet to get the response of the state government as the media aide to the Kaduna State governor did not pick his calls.
Also, effort to get the state Commissioner for Health was not successful as of press time.
Faith Ayeh, who was allegedly kidnapped by her parents’ maid, Mary, in the Iju Ishaga area of Lagos State, has been found.
Saturday Punch reports that the victim was found in Abeokuta, Ogun State by a man, who had read an earlier report by about her disappearance.
The resident was said to have called Faith’s parents, who then raced to the area to bring her home.
It was earlier reported that Mary was employed by the Ghanaian family about five months ago to assist with house chores at their home on Kudirat Abiola Estate, Akute Road, Iju Ishaga.
She was also reported to be assisting the mother of the house, Glory, with her frozen foods business on the street.
However, the suspect allegedly went out with the victim last Thursday, claiming Glory sent them on errands when she was challenged by the family driver.
Their whereabouts had remained unknown since then.
Faith’s father, Paul, revealed that his daughter was found by a man who read the report.
He said, “The man called us that he found my daughter on the road. He said he saw her picture in your (PUNCH) newspaper and he got my number to call us so we could come and take her.
“My wife said she would go and we had to get some policemen to follow her there. The police were able to arrest two suspects and the case was taken to Abeokuta, before it was transferred to the anti-kidnapping section of the Surulere Police Division.”
Asked if the maid had been arrested and what the daughter said, he said his daughter and wife were on their way home, adding that he would call back as soon as they reached the house.
According to Saturday Punch, While his wife’s contact could not be reached on the telephone, he had yet to also call back as of press time.
But the state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, said it was a case of absconding, adding that Faith fled her parents’ home on her own volition.
She said, “What happened was that the girl, Faith, claimed that her mother was too harsh on her and she decided to run away with the housemaid, who was eloping with her boyfriend. When they got to Abeokuta, the home of the boyfriend, the man decided to habour the two of them. It was there that he was sleeping with the maid, Mary, who had equally been declared missing by her parents.
“The boyfriend, however, started having an affair with Faith as well, which got the maid jealous. As a way of revenging, she decided to call Faith’s parents to tell them their whereabouts. That was how the secret was leaked. The matter is under investigation.”
