What is virginity? What does it actually mean? Who is a virgin? These are some questions some people frequently ask. Some people see it as something trivial while other people hold it in high esteem.
Virginity is the state of never having had sexual intercourse. What do people see in having sex? Why do people not hold abstinence in high esteem anymore? Sex isn’t a bad thing but it was specially designed for married couples because then they have the access to it and they have the freedom to enjoy it. God wasn’t foolish when he said we should multiply on the earth. He meant we should have children and inhabit the earth. The reasons why people have sex before time or lose their virginity before time is known to them. There are so many misconceptions surrounding virginity in our present day and time. Some people believe virginity is a dumb idea and some just have the urge to dabble into what might be hard to come out of.
Many girls of today lose their virginity due to peer pressure. Peer pressure has become rampant in our society. We see people from good backgrounds dropping all they have been taught because of one taunt or one comment against you. People are pressurised to have sex before time under the notion that waiting till the wedding night is quite stupid and sex then would be very painful. Some people are pressurised into taking drugs because they are told that it gives you a sense of power and if you don’t take it then you are a child. Let them say what they want to say. No matter what you do, there are just some people that are there to oppose your every move. Whether you go with them or you don’t, they will still criticise you. We have these people everywhere, they are sad people that are bent on ruining people’s lives.
Don’t do what you will later regret. Apart from regret, you stand a high chance of getting the famous virus, HIV. You stand the risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases, you stand the risk of getting pregnant! Imagine going to write exams with a protruding belly and people murmuring every time you pass. It’s quite a shame. I know there are contraceptive measures and all that but still it’s not safe.
Now, having noticed that virginity is purity and purity is essential and sex is for married people, what do you do when you have lost it? Kill yourself? No, that is automatic hell fire, free entry. You get back on track. You continue to live life and make sure not to make the same mistake. You could help others by advocating for virginity.
Lastly, it is one thing to be a virgin and to be A VIRGIN. You could be a virgin and still harbour some thoughts not befitting of a virgin. So purity needs to come from inside.
Dear readers, let us try to advocate for what is right. SAY NO TO PREMARITAL SEX! SAY NO TO PEER PRESSURE! Comments will be appreciated. Have a blessed day!
AFOMA AND ODDIE.
