The exacerbating rate of illicit sexual relationships in our community
today poses a moral, cultural and religious menace that undermine the
very principles of civilization. Civilization which should stipulate a
departure from habits seen as lawless, crude and egoistic to a better and
more humanitarian values guided by norms and customs, however, today,
the reverse has come to
define what civilization translates, so much so that what has been
heretofore seen as
lawless, crude and sacrilegious is now promoted as a secular ideal of life.
On this template, Pre-marital sex which involves any sexual act prior
to marriage, that have been abhorred by the society, culture and religion
has now assume an ubiquitous acceptance that defies the intellect’s
understanding of orderliness. Most persons (even philosophers like
Bertrand Russel) are now stone-blind to it’s
wrongness in se, because it has become an expedient escapade for Youth to
announce their existence amongst counterparts. However, as Theodore
Roosevelt once asserted correctly, ‘ No man is justified in doing evil on
the ground of expedience. Hence, we shall look at the very evils of
1. It is a retrogression to the very ideals of animals, where biological
instincts reign supreme. The unrestrained apt for immediate
gratification of sexual urges, insults the very ideals of humanity
2. It becomes a crime against the society, the society has the sole
prerogative to give licence to any matured adults to pry the canal
network of his or her partner via the
institution of marriage, prior to this sex becomes an abridgement,
nay, an ontological crime.
3. It is a crime against parenthood: the ordeals of child bearing and
upbringing, through pre-marital sex, is being treated with utmost
contempt, as it is met unrewarded with chilvarious enjoyment by
another without the parent’s consent. This is the world greatest
4. It translates into the paradox of eating tomorrow’s cake today,
tomorrow, hence risks being either cakeless or less cake. Whichever
way, you cannot eat your cake and have it!
5. The price of virginity is the costliest of all things, momentary
immoral exuberrance of pre-marital sex is the worst price for it!
6. It shatters mental tranquility and inner rectitude. Like a
dynamite, when released, it leaves you shattered, battere and
scattered in body, spirit and soul
7. It dries up the cistern of TRUE LOVE, at every instance of it, true
love loses it’s alluring potent. Every bio-active element lost in it
is enough to demystify all the endearing phantoms of Love.
8. It results into foolhardy heroism: it is a means of self
conscription into the foremost battle front in this World War III
whose undertaker is the renown commando called HUMAN IMMUNE DEFICIENCY
VIRUS aka HIV!
9. The whole gods of the land abhor and prohibit it. And the gods are wise!
10. A true wise person dont indulge in it because it’s the simplest
way of sacrificing great destinies.
