On Sex and Sexuality

Lot of persons talk about, read about, listen to, see / look and / or watch it everywhere we go, but a lot of what we see, say, understand, and hear about sex and sexuality is either erroneous, inaccurate, corrupted, abused, thwarted, reinvented, et.c, thereby making it so confusing, misdirecting, misleading, misconceived, ill-conceived, rebuffing, harmful, to mention but a few. Some have even been raised to view any awareness of their sexuality – as “bad or ungodly”

We as sexual beings, no doubts are confronted with sexual situations on a daily bases and triggered by technological advancement, the internet and cyberspace. Sex has become so blatant and easy to access through all kinds of means. It has become a degraded commodity, which is traded in every sphere of our human engagements instead of the dignified pleasure it births.

The Scientific communities of this world, are perfecting every means necessary to augment the human race, through medicine, cosmetology, health and awareness, that to this day, there are sexual rejuvenation, the human species are becoming more beautiful at birth, in shape, age, et.c. Both male and female flaunt their beauty and sexuality by engaging in all sorts of sensual gimmicks. These days, it doesn’t take either sex a heartbeat to ask for sexual favors.

In all of this, the Church and the Christian youths has been caught in its tentacles and are crying out in despair as to what should they do in order to save themselves from such a powerful force. Admittedly, many Christian teenagers and young adults have made serious mistakes that have cost them gravely. Others are on the path of destruction, and many are making uninformed decisions that will have unforeseen consequences.

Did you know that parental avoidance of any discussion on sex and sexuality, unhealthy and / or uneducated view of sexuality, miscommunication about sex as being dirty or perverted, etc leave youths unprepared for the realities of sexuality as adolescents and adults?

According to Pew Research, 58% of religiously affiliated young adults ages 18–29 state that they believe homosexuality should be accepted in society. Additional Pew Research tells us that unplanned pregnancies among 15–19 year olds is more impacted by lack of access to sex education and health services than religious and cultural morals and teachings.

The object of this is to present a case from the Bible base yet practical standpoint to empower youth and young adults to understand that, sex is beautiful and intended for human responsible pleasure, contrary to the popular cultural view of sex, as self-expression, self-discovery, self-realization, and self-gratification.

    1. Contemporary knowledge shows that chronological age is not the best measure of determining sex education. Individual child has different level of awareness, exposure and development. It behooves parents to be available for their children in order to discern the right time. But in general sense from the age of two (2). Identifying their sexual organs and their usages/functions is a core part of sexual education.
