Top-tier content and entertainment is what the Ranakas have been serving in the latest season of their show. The family has been keeping it real with viewers since episode 1 and we’re loving every moment of it. What we also appreciate about this season are the educational gems the family shares with viewers every week.
Whether the topic is taboo or not, the family will engage with the topic at hand.
Let’s recap this week’s episode.
Ranaka has some … interesting theories
If there’s one thing you need to know about the Ranakas is that they will talk about sex openly. Remember Dineo’s sex positivity discussion with her niece?
Well, in this case, it was the Ranaka men who had their turn to talk about sex education.
Ntate Ranaka has provided a comfortable environment for his kids to talk about anything with him. No matter how serious or superficial the topic may be, Ntate Ranaka is there to engate with his kids with an open mind.
In episode 7, Ntate Ranaka spoke openly about sex and the cause of prostate cancer with his youngest son, Ranaka.
Ntate Ranaka and Ma Siba were having a discussion about Ntate Ranaka’s medical history. The discussion then led to a conversation about prostate cancer.
Being the wise man he is, Ntate Ranaka tested Ranaka’s knowledge about prostate cancer.
According to Ranaka, prostate cancer is caused when older men engage too often in a certain sexual position.
“You need to avoid it because there is too much impact on the testicles during that particular position,” says Ranaka. Really?
Although this might be funny, Ma Ranaka explains that it is important for young men to educate themselves about their sexual health.
“We might laugh but this is serious. Young men in the streets, educate yourselves,” says Ma.
Not only did Ma Siba and Ntate Ranaka laugh about this uneducated statement but they proceeded to set Ranaka straight.
Ntate Ranaka further advised his son that it is important that when he gets older, he needs to make sure he goes for a prostate check-up as often as possible.
Clarity about prostate cancer
Ranaka’s lack of information about prostate cancer concerned his father so much that Ntate Ranaka took it upon himself to get more information about the illness, so he visited his doctor.
The information he received was so insightful that we hope he will pass it on to his son.
“I’m grateful for the doctor’s extensive explanation that we will hold onto,” says Ntate Ranaka.
