In years before, sex was considered a sacred act that was supposed to be consummated between husband and wife. In fact, in the ancient times, sex and virginity was closely associated with virtue. Ladies and men who didn’t have sex before marriage were accorded respect and those who it was discovered had had sex before marriage were disgraced and were seen as outcasts in the society.
However, a lot has changed in recent times and we have come to the age of the ‘woke’ generation, the ‘jasi’ (in vogue) generation and the sacredness of sex has become significantly depleted. People, especially the youths of nowadays have become very ‘free’ as sex has become commonplace; people now have sex for the fun of it. In fact, people who meet themselves today can decide to have the popular one-night stand and move on with their lives. Sex is now considered a means of catching fun. In fact, some people, especially in this ‘woke’ generation now see sex as a sport and have now become professionals at it in the mold of Roger Federer and Christiano Ronaldo.
What effect has this brought upon this brought upon this ‘woke’ generation? First, it has brought down moral standards. By virtue of having sex at will, a lot of morals and chastity has become old fashioned as those who do not have sex are seen as outcasts and they are pushed out of the social circles.
Also, by virtue of having sex at will, the rate at which people get raped has increased. You’re in doubt of this, right? Take a sample of the rate at which rape cases were reported in the years when sex was seen as a sacred act and in recent time when sex is seen as a normal thing, how rampant is it? I’m pretty sure you’ll agree with me that rape has significantly increased in this ‘woke’ generation.
Although, many may consider this extreme, the rate at which people steal in this ‘woke’ generation has increased. Take a sample of most armed robbery groups which are nabbed nowadays; you’ll discover that most of them are youths, right? The truth is that asides, using the proceeds of their loots to attend wild parties and buy cars, most of these youths actually use their loots to either sleep with prostitutes or lure ladies who they eventually have sex with.
This cycle has caused the following. The ‘woke’ generation who have been touted to be leaders of tomorrow have lost the dreams of that tomorrow as they have become lost in the wilderness of today. It is no news that sex is addictive. By virtue of incessant desire for sex, the ‘woke’ generation have lost all thought of tomorrow as they are all concerned with the mundane enjoyment that five minutes of pleasure will give to them.
What then do we do? Which way do we go? How do we rescue the youths of today from this menace that has beclouded their vision? The way to go is to repair the faulty foundation; a reorientation, a renewal of the mind of the youths of today is needed lest our dreams of a brighter tomorrow become lost in the wilderness of today.
