Do not raise your eyebrows yet! This is sure a touchy and delicate topic, but one that needs to be addressed. Especially to the youth of the nation. Pre-marital sex or having sexual relations before marriage is considered a taboo in most societies, including ours. We look down upon on such couples and brand them as promiscuous.
If two consenting adults, in a loving relationship, choose to get physical (with protection, of course), if shouldn’t be a worry to others. It’s none of their business, after all. Sex is a natural way to express your love for someone and indulging in it before marriage shouldn’t be a crime. In a society where there are instances of cruelty every day, why should people bother about other people’s sex lives when they can utilize the time to do something worthwhile? It’s appalling how judgmental and cheap your friends will become once you tell them about your ‘affair’.
While the most practical concern that parents have, apart from STDs, is of pregnancy. While having sex before marriage is not cool, having an illegitimate child is like crap hitting through the roof. And no adult will ever do anything this stupid that will ruin their whole lives. Why do we make a hue and cry about something as important and necessary as sex? It’s as important as water, sleep and food. It’s one of the basic needs for survival, according to psychologists. When you deprive a healthy person of sex, you’re depriving him/her of learning things on his/her own.
Isn’t the consent of two adults more than enough? Why do you need a paper from the government for making love? How does marital status matter when you’re in love and want to explore each other? It’s outrageous when people who have nothing better to do, tell you how to lead your life. If you want to have sex, you go right ahead and do it. If you want to wait till you find the right person, do just that. If you’re high as a kite and want to make the night memorable with a senseless one-night stand, you go right ahead! Because it’s your life and you have the right to do what you want. But make sure you use enough protection and are prepared to answer your parents, as they are the only people you’re answerable to.
Let’s not make a big deal out of sex, it’s just one emotion out of many. Would have rather have regrets than do something and then regret? The choice, as they say, is yours and yours alone.
