Episode 2: Tolu’s Corner: Premarital Sex, Okay or Not?

Sex is one of the pivotal thing giving to us by God to enjoy in this life. Sexual intercourse takes place between couples who are married and those who aren't. I

It takes place among friends, ( Friend with benefits)and even strangers ( One night stand) which leads to the issue of premarital sex.

This leads us to the issue of premarital sex.

What is pre marital Sex?

Premarital sex is the sexual activity that happens between couples before the nuptials ties. Young adult who engages in this activity are either into a relationship or do this just to satisfy sexual urge( Friends with benefits & One night stands)

Young adults who involve themselves in premarital sex most times believe that the act is an activity that helps them to know how much their partner loves them. They use sex as an indicator of love.

It is no hidden fact that, the majority of parents often advise their wards against sexual indulgence at an early age but most times peer pressure and pressure from other social vices do take the upper hands.

I have spoken to few ladies who don't engage in premarital sex and I ask why they aren't engaged in the popular practice?

  • Some say they are scared of unwanted pregnancy;
  • some refer to the moral standards of marriage before sex and
  • some just say they haven't found the right person who they want to be involved with.

On the other hand, some say why would I be in a relationship and not have a taste of who I'm with. In a way, we must have heard about people who stay away from sex until marriage and in the end, the sex after marriage doesn't meet up to expectations. It could be that the man may not be performing well or the lady doesn't enjoy the sex as a result of this, marriages have been broken. Which leads us to the question of why didn't they have sex before committing to one another?

Should we say we should forget moral standards about staying from sex before marriage or whether should go ahead and have a taste of who we want to be with?

While thinking about this answer, keep in mind that premarital sex has led to some bad incident of unwanted pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, low self-esteem etc.

There are couples who have been having sex years before they got married and have been living fine afterwards but this still doesn't make it right. Also, what might have worked for them might not work for you. So, Don't be pressurised,  live your life and do right.

So, what do you think? Premarital Sex, Okay or Not?
