“Don’t shave your Valentine’s gift. It’s 24 hours too late now. If you shave now and have sex tomorrow, there’s a good chance you will have tiny cuts which can give you STDs and HIV especially if you have any unprotected sex. Chioma, If you like look away. I’m still talking to you. If you plan Valentine’s sex for the weekend, PLS SHAVE TODAY.
Jumoke, don’t wait till Friday morning then hang leg on sink to shave, you can have microcuts that make it very easy to catch an STD. That your weekend Valentine’s gift: Shave am today. You can apply red ribbon on Saturday and deliver it in person. But if you plan to have sex tomorrow, Don’t shave today. Too close. Too risky. Chisom, don’t say you didn’t see this tweet.”
