I was a little child but I knew exactly what sex was about, so did my peers. Some parents assumed their children were innocent but mine didn’t assume that, but did it mar me? No! Infact it made me put me in check. I had to leave my neighborhood and spend time with children from various neighborhood and diverse backgrounds. There in the boarding house, various opinions on sex from innocent minds flooded our conversations. Nobody wanted to be a novice concerning matters about sex and relationships, but nobody wanted to be the lab rat used for experiments on teenage sex and consequences. Even the so called ‘bigger babes’ tried to be as innocent as a lamb. Though crushing, dating, flirting etc were not really far from our dwelling, even right from our first year, only once in our senior year did a couple get into the ‘smooshy mooshy’ mood in class during school hours. Many, including the ‘not so innocent’ had freaked out at the sight and the news. Looking back, I can tell that minds were open but not necessarily polluted. Infact, with all the things we witnessed both in junior year and senior year, the urge to slap the juniors that mistakenly thought of crushing on anybody was still in us, how quick we forget that we did the same.
Now am bothered about how things have turned out. I once watched ‘the cops show’ where there happened to be a problem in a block. Seeing a girl and a guy there, the cop asked the guy who the girl is to him and asked the girl same, they both agreed they were lovers, or should I say ‘boyfriend’ and ‘girlfriend’ but when the cop asked the girl for the guy’s name, she had no idea, but they had just slept together and they both agree they are in a relationship…with a total stranger. All around me, you see teenage girls looking like their mothers. Nobody believes virgins exist anymore. The reason behind this, nobody can confidently say. Is it because the search for love has become rampant? Is it because girls are more money conscious than anything else? Is it because telemundo and soap operas have become a daily teacher of how to live? Or is it because sex in films is no longer coded? But one thing I know is that the idea that there’s no wrong in getting down with anybody has made the rate of indecency higher and it’s still growing, just watch out for season 3.
Condemning you is not my intention but letting you see and accept that there’s something wrong is my major aim. Though we are in the times where nobody seems to bother too much about being defiled, getting pregnant or even posting on facebook how the sex we just had was amazing, but I wonder if a habit can be broken when marriage sets in. Do not be deceived, he that doeth righteousness is righteous. You become what you do.
