Thursday 15 February Published in Local. This state of affairs has professionals like Dr Debi Futter-Puati concerned at current taboo-like attitudes towards love, sex, sexuality and sexual relationships within Cook Islands communities.
In the hope that she could help parents to better understand the importance of being open and honest with their children about sex and sexuality at a young age, Futter-Puati completed an extensive study which saw more than aronga mapu youth take part in a questionnaire relating to love, sexuality and sexual relationships in the Cook Islands.
Late last year Cook Islands News reporter Shae Osborne spoke to Futter-Puati about her research and was shocked at some of her findings. The study also found that the Cook Islands has a higher of teen pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections per capita than New Zealand. Futter-Puati believes that religion and culture play major roles in contributing to these statistics.
Her data revealed that Cook Islands youth rarely have the knowledge they need about contraception — which le to higher pregnancy rates. When interviewed, young individuals said they did not have control over the use of contraception for a range of reasons. These included having to ask face to face, knowing or being related to the person they had to ask for condoms, or being too scared. Furthermore, a study conducted in with antenatal women found that only a third of pregnancies in the Cook Islands are planned. Futter-Puati does note that the Cook Islands has made a small step in the right direction recently, with the installation of condom dispensers around Rarotonga, including in several nightclubs.
However, she says the outer islands are still without access to free contraception, a worrisome problem that will continue to result in teenage pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections. When looking further at the lack of education and discussion surrounding sexuality and sexual relationships, Futter-Puati discovered that youth left without substantial and relevant Women in Cook Islands ready to fuck regarding intimate relationships sought the information elsewhere.
Evidence suggests that Cook Islands youth often obtain their knowledge about relationships from their lovers and friends — not from their parents or family. And what research has shown about pornography is that young men and young women think that what they see in these videos is what a real-life relationship and intimacy is supposed to be like.
Sometimes this realisation does not come until much later in life, and this creates an unhealthy foundation with which to start serious, future relationships. In making the transition from youth to adulthood, all young people need to learn about the many aspects of love, sex, sexuality and sexual relationships. Futter-Puati also believes that as the Cook Islands has become more influenced by transnationalism and globalisation, the difference of understanding between generations in regards to sexuality is becoming more prominent.
She says it is time to start talking openly and honestly about sex, sexuality and sexual relationships with Cook Islands youth. Editor's Picks Local. Climate change warrants greater fisheries conservation, NGO says 27 July Te Maeva Nui to kick start with float parade on Friday 27 July Rugby league.
