Question: I am a 19-year-old girl and my boyfriend is 21. We had protected sex but during intercourse, our contraceptive failed. His condom broke and a small part of it was left inside my vagina. I took I- pill within six hours of intercourse. Will I get pregnant?
Sexpert: Did you fish out the condom? Since you have taken due precautions, you will escape pregnancy. It won’t affect either of you except creating a lot of tension.
Me: I am unable to give you complete assurance since it is possible the condom got deeply involved with you. This is why it broke free. It is possible for you to get pregnant, not by your boyfriend but by that piece of condom. Condoms are made of latex, which is the juice from the rubber tree. Trees have life. Anything that has life regenerates and gives birth. You could mother the first latex baby. Keep it away from the bark of the rubber tree since it may prefer to call it Mommy.

Question: Does eating mint chocolate lead to reduction in a man’s sperm count? I feel this is a common problem that all men are facing today. I am very concerned. Please help.
Sexpert: If you have this fear, don’t eat mint chocolates. But do not interfere with those (including myself) who love them; they have had no problem. If you have some scientific evidence, please do send.
Me: You are right. Each time you pop a mint chocolate you get an icy feeling. This cold gust moves at the speed of light through the lungs to the intestines. Since the intestines are curled, there is no room to manoeuvre in a linear manner, so they break through and reach the testicles. This gust has now solidified into snowy layers. The sperms that were happily swimming or taking a rest try to huddle up together, but the temperature is too cold and many die. They are accustomed to a tropical climate inside you, even if you live in Alaska. The ones who survive are the tough ones, so next time you meet them just be prepared for a frost bite.
