Hence, the present study was undertaken to investigate the sexual satisfaction and its associated factors among married women. Community-based cross-sectional study with mixed approach was conducted from March 1 to April 30, in Kewot District, Northern Ethiopia on a sample of married women.

Metrics details. Understanding the full range of sexual behaviors of young people is crucial in developing appropriate interventions to prevent and control sexually transmitted infections including HIV. However, such information is meager in developing countries. The objective of this study was to describe oral and anal sex practices and identify associated factors among high school youth. A cross-sectional study was conducted among high school youth in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. A multi-stage sampling procedure was followed to select a representative sample of school youth.

Adult sex work is illegal in Ethiopia and although the law is not enforced, sex workers are not subject to the levels of violence and extortion by police that have been widely reported in other countries. Further, although poverty and poor labour conditions for women clearly incentivise women and girls to sell sex, sex work does not in most cases provide a way out of acute poverty in Ethiopia. It funds traditional EEPs operated at a local level and allows HIV programmes and faith-based non-governmental organisations NGOs to operate EEPs in conjunction with other services, although their purpose is not articulated. Although homosexuality is illegal in Ethiopia, same-sex behaviour is not prosecuted because the government of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia views homosexuality as a low law enforcement priority.
At a small clinic in a quiet, residential neighborhood, ten women are preparing to hit the streets for a day of potentially life-saving work; by donning white coats and filling their handbags with condoms. These peer educators are former or current sex workers who teach others how to protect themselves from sexually-transmitted infections STIs and unintended pregnancy. The Jimma confidential clinic was set up in to help at-risk and underserved populations like sex workers receive free and bespoke services that include HIV and STI testing, treatment and counselling, contraceptives and comprehensive abortion care. The peer educators work as volunteers and receive 2, Ethiopian Birr about USD 60 per month for travel costs. Their work is challenging, and they travel in pairs for safety because some people do not welcome their messages.
