BuzzFeed Video’s Daysha Edewi is giving both women and men something to think about in her new spoken word video “What I Wish Someone Told Me About Having Sex.” Edewi recounts an experience with a guy, and although they used protection, she didn’t protect her emotions.
“I thought I knew everything there was to know about having safe sex. Always carry a condom and never ever get pregnant,” Edewi states in the poem.
And she’s so right.
When it comes to sex, there are those people out there who are able to detach emotionally from it, but there are others who have a harder time doing so. And typically some people correlate this with women, but I’m sure there are men out there who have issues with this as well.
Edewi’s video speaks the truth of what happens to a lot of women, but that doesn’t mean that all women are looking at their phones all night waiting for that person to call them.
Take a look at the video below:
Basically, the moral of the story is: protect your body and your emotions.
