Ever since this topic has been listed as a contest in Indiblogger, there has been a heated debate in the forum about how controversial the subject is and the views of many of them seems to vary from north to south pole. Even I did not want to take part in it as it seemed very controversial at first. As days went by I was thinking how INDIA which gave kamasutra to the world, and so many ancient temples which has exquisitely carved and crafted sculptures of sexual nature suddenly became a place where even speaking about sex and related things became a taboo. So here I am sharing my views on this to the whole world.
Being a teen in my early twenties coming from a traditional south indian family, I couldnt conclude immediately to say whether its right or wrong to engage in pre marital sexual activities. Even though my mind said its wrong, heart couldn’t agree completely on it. So I started thinking about all the positivies and negatives to make a conclusion. So here are my findings.
Benefits of Sex:
Science has proved that sex can improve the Immune System , it can lower the blood pressure, Lowers Heart Attack Risk, counts as an excercise, improves sleep and eases stress. As Sex is a powerful brain stimulant, it can boost ones self-esteem and happiness too.
Now lets see how it fares when it happens pre maritally.
- It runs the risk of conceiving illegitimate children (Unwanted pregnancies).
- High risk of contracting one of the many venereal diseases such as STD etc.
- Usage of multiple contraceptive Pills can cause Infertility.
- Breakups become more hurtful and painful.
- Having sex at a young age without proper sexual education, can lead to potential dangers.
- It can arrest their psychological, social and academic development.
- Coming from a religious background its also considered a Sin.
- The worry about pregnancy & diseases.
- Feeling guilty.
- Having regrets.
When we compare the positives and negatives, the benefits do outweigh the negatives.
If Pre marital sex happens between adults with mutal consent and they practice ‘safe sex’ then its fine.
Sex is something which is a very private affair happening between two people. So either its pre or saving the virginity for marriage is their own decision to make. Finally they have to accept the decision and live by the consequences.
As far as I am concerned, I stand against it , as it doesnt comply by my own religious and moral values.
