It made my blood rile when I discovered that religions centered on sex were once dominant and now have gone exctint. This makes me wonder that the current cultural view of sex was a propaganda to bottle up and cast away the old sex narrative and instil a new one that gives it more power and control of the new societies they created.
Perhaps the old religions were dangerous. Or perhaps, it granted people more independence to the human society that slavers could not contain. I use the world slavery because I cannot help but think that the current world system is a design to dominate humanity by some elites. Hence they birthed a cultural society that thrived on the dirty panties (see Sex Talk one: The Dirty Panties Theory) narrative. It is a plot used by the slavers in all spheres, which is to take away their identity and leave them to beg while they offer your new ideals which is meant to control rather than grant true human liberation. This may look more like a political argument, but trust me, there is a sex conspiracy to it too. Who the slavers are and their propaganda is a tale for another time. All we need now is that sometime along the track of time, mankind lost the ability to find identity and significance through sex.
Sex as a center of worship was meant to rever its spiritual prowess. All of that is lost now and sex has become a body thing or a pleasure thing. The cultural talk on sex usually has the religious undertones of ‘the forbidden fruit’. The progressive talk on sex usually has the convention undertones of ‘the pleasure drug’. Sadly, neither talk on sex has achieved the true meaning i.e. to define and communicate your sexual identity, and hence negotiating a healthy preference to the build up of your spiritual person. Wow! What a hefty thing to say about something as banal as sex.
Sex is a form of communication. We communicate on either the basis to discover who we are or to imprint who we are. It is the same thing with sex. It will be difficult to uphold this view of sex without having an emotional and spiritual responsibility for this sort of communication. First, we discover this sexuality by venturing and exploring. It is just as a toddler begins with uttering strings of babble before it can properly express itself. After we have come to the discovery of our sexually which means the ability to communicate our spiritual existence through sex, the next stage would be to imprint our sexual identity on the person(s) who will revere it the same way we are mature enough to revere theirs. This is when sex gains a spiritual significance and it has nothing to do with confines of marriage or the liberty of brazen expression.
So, let us go ahead with the cultural talk on sex with our new found definition of sex. It is most times too late to wait on the matrimonial bed to begin to venture and explore. It is that most times a couple jump into matrimony without any self identity at all, they soon dicover the struggle to identify themselves or satisfy the identity of their partners. The wait-till-marriage theory has made so many promises of pro-marital bliss and made astounding numbers of threats when one breaks this rule. A life long enjoyment of sex if you wait till marriage is a myth that is debunkable. Check facts or polls on the topic. Sexual excitement does not magically spring up because you waited till marriage. There is no guarantee that the sex will come regularly or will last till death do you part if you stay true to a matrimonial wait principle. Marriage is not a promise of an endless adventure of sex. In most cases, it is the death of it. The deciding matter is not waiting or fidelity, it is about how sexually mature one is before contracting into marriage.
Due to some people’s lack of sexual maturity before marriage, they are highly dissatisfied in their matrimonial bed and tend to look at sex as an inconvenience or just a biological tool to quiet an urge in the genital region. Some others become emotionally spent because they have been forced to give and receive nothing in return. This is often times the reason why a member of the conjugal room seeks a sexual alliance on the outside of it. Other times, it breeds all sort of contempt till the only way out is to seek a divorcing. This way the succulence and sweetness of sex is atrophied till all that is left is the bone cracked strokes of the conjugal duty and responsibilities, leaving behind a trail of pain. I wonder if I have made any sense. Only those who have been there will know what I mean.
It is clear that waiting till matrimony is too late to discover your sexuality. It is also true that you can begin the journey to sexual maturity and identifying who you are sexually with your spouse after marriage. Although the journey is possible, the conclusion of it may further tear you apart rather than draw you together. What if your sexual identity is not compatible with a partner’s? A lot of this trouble could have been avoided if marriage was based on the compatibility of the sexuality identity of two sexually mature adults.
This does not leave the progressive talk on sex out of the guilt trip. In this society, sex is played as a social card subject to the whims and caprices of bodily desires. While this may not be the problem, because truly, this is the biological function of sex, overplaying this card without an aim or a true goal in sight is what strips sex down to a purely pleasure tool used to play down the biological grieving in the body. It then becomes a dose of psychedellic intended to fill a vacuum that is surely unhealthy to the spirit soul and breed self destruct habits. Before long, rather than become sexually mature and discover your sexual identity, you become a soulless sex machine, seeking sex for its pleasure dose only. Animals do that sort of thing. To be lowered thus far is to perceive sex with your animal instinct. Of course it is hard to control it. A little liberty without practical wisdom drives a man to his animalistic wits. The progressive talk preaches freedom of expression and no self control. You can only imagine the emotional consequence to this.That is why it always ends disastrously.
After defining sex true purpose and comparing it with the several talk on the subject, we come to this illustrated conclusion.
‘Sex is like a spirited horse whose heart could be broken if locked away in a stable or can becomes lost if set free to roam too far. For you to tame it, you must place a measure of restrain on it with a briddle, and caution it with strong will and conscience in a rider. With the reins in the hands of a rider you have no fear to set off into the wild, because you have the confidence that it will ride back to the stable before dusk’.
Sex is not meant to b caged or set on the wild. According to your measure of self control, take it on the ride to self discovery.
This is how your sexual instinct can be tamed till you discover your sexual identity and achieve maturity. We will find out how in the following sex talks.
