Seven Reasons Why Sex Is Worth Waiting For

The pressure is ON to loose your virginity like yesterday!!!  Parents who might have otherwise counseled you, forbade you or restricted you from sexual involvement before marriage, are now encouraging you to use protection because they have given in to the belief that YOU WILL DO IT ANYWAY, so you might as well be safe.  But, before you go ahead and do what ‘everybody’ thinks you should be doing or have done by now, here are seven reasons to WAIT!

WAIT because IT’S NOT TRUE!  Not everyone is doing it.  You are not everyone, you are an individual.  Make your own decision, don’t follow the herd!

WAIT because YOU CAN’T TAKE IT BACK!  Once you give it, it is gone!  There’s no rewinding the time.  When you meet the one you should have shared that wonderful first experience with, you will know what a waste it was to throw it away.

WAIT because YOU DESERVE LOVE. Yes you do.  Anybody that compels you to have sex outside of a loving commitment (marriage) does not really love you.  Putting out doesn’t lead to happily ever afters anymore than losing your shoe!

WAIT because IT IS NEVER 100% SAFE.  There is no such thing as safe sex!  The safest sex is that between a man and a woman who are wholly committed and truthful to each other.  You might end up with a baby, or even worse, a fatal disease.

WAIT because THERE IS A TIME FOR EVERYTHING. There’s a time to play, and laugh, and cry, and yes, have sex for the first time.  Enjoy your adolescence.  Don’t be in a hurry to grow up.  When you have grown up responsibilities, you’ll realize that you cheated yourself of a childhood, if you never really enjoyed the simple things of love without the burden of sex.

WAIT because PRACTICE DOESN’T MAKE YOU AN EXPERT.  The idea that practice makes perfect is true in some situations, but not all.  And definitely not where it concerns something as personal and emotional as sex.  Having many relationships never made anyone an expert at relationships.  It actually reveals how BAD they are at relationships.  You really don’t need to be a prostitute to be good at sex.

WAIT because GOD SAYS SO.  The dangerous impact of promiscuity can be felt all over the world, among Christians and Atheists alike.  Consider the many broken homes, teenage pregnancies and abortions!  God put in those boundaries for a reason bigger than we realize.  When we do it His way, we get the best outcome!

My brothers and sisters, Christian or unbeliever, please WAIT!

    This is a great piece, thanks for writing it! Reading this made me wait and re-think.
    You know nowadays, people see virgins as hypocrite..they’ll say with a puzzled look,she’s a virgin? how is that possible?she must be doing self servicing or a lesbian.
    A friend of mine in her early 20’s who is pregnant was telling me, she wished she had waited ,she went on and on telling me that the guy who she thought had loved her wanted her body and nothing else.
    Thanks once again for this! God bless you.

        That was sarcasm. You make it sound like prostitute is the opposite of virgin.

        To be honest with ourselves, all the reasons here don’t apply if you don’t wait. People have sex outside marriage and go on to leave great lives. There are also people that are virgins till marriage and still suffer the so-called repercussions above.

        If you want to encourage people to wait, don’t be condescending. Appeal to their heart and mind. By now you know not everyone believes in God.

        My 2 cents.

            Hi Ufuoma,

            You could have just said having a lot of sex doesn’t automatically make you good at it. The reference to prostitutes was totally unnecessary.

            The rest of your comment amused me because you assumed that 1. I’m against waiting and 2. I’m not a virgin. Well, SURPRISE, I’m a virgin and I’m waiting till marriage because (another shocker) of my religion and preference.

            Waiting till marriage is not a rule so I don’t see what you’re saying. I mean your first 2 reasons are true. The other ones…nah. Someone can lose their virginity to someone they love outside marriage. Don’t go assuming that someone that loves you won’t have sex with you till you guys are married. 100% safe is also not guaranteed in marriage fyi.

            Practice makes you perfect when it comes to sex. Let’s not kid ourselves. That’s probably why you used relationships to explain that point and not sex.

            Toodles 🙂

            I also think you are being condescending, but my main problem is with your first paragraph where you said parents are now telling their children about protection. You say that like it’s a bad thing and it’s these kinds of statements that put countries like ours at the top of the list for unsafe abortion and teenage pregnancy. Teaching abstinence is great and wonderful, but it is a fact that there are some adolescents who will have sex, and not telling them about how to protect themselves is partly how we got here. And you may not have meant it that way, but you basically implied that if a woman has had more sexual partners than others she is a prostitute. I’m saying as a health worker here that abstinence only policies do not work and we have to stop pretending that if we try hard enough they will.

    Interesting write up.Some quick questions though…

    -Is this article addressed to a particular age group (read teenagers) who need guidance?
    -Wait till when exactly? Marriage? what then happens to all the folk who have no intention of getting married or those who never get to meet the “right”one till late in life? Are they doomed never to enjoy sex?

    If after marriage one finds out she’s not compatible with her spouse, what happens? Counselling? Manage it? Divorce?
    Love does not guarantee great sex.
    Loving sex does not 100% make one a prostitute.
    It’s advice like this that give young girls the impression that sex is only enjoyed by men and thus a favor to men.

    Sex is safe in marriage, and because God says so.Those are the only reasons i’ll hold out. The other reasons don’t quite gel with me.. They are one sided, it can be twisted to sound like only dudes can enjoy sex..Result of saying anybody that compels you to have sex outside of a loving commitment (marriage) does not really love you means a girl will give it out once she “believes” what he has for her is love..and what happens after proposal? they shag! not like i am debating what is written..It could be more comprehensive..

    and how about a post for what to do to take your mind off raging sexual hormones? We all get them, they are the reality of life..we have to learn to acknowledge them and deal with them..”dos and don’ts” don’t really help anyone to where they should be, but rather “how tos”..

    Dear Ufuome,
    Let me begin by saying that I like you very much for a number of reasons, one of which is that we bear the same name. I also think you’re an intelligent African woman… Thank Goodness.
    Now there’s so many things wrong with this piece but I’d rather address the 7th point you raised because others have tried but to correct you on the other 6. Too bad you refuse to be objective in your arguments.
    About the 7th point you raised, which I believe I should the I say the pivotal, let me inform you that God never said anything against premarital sex. On the contrary, the Bible I read actually supports premarital sex.
    It’s very important that this wrong impression I should corrected.

        Of course. Exodus 22:16-17; Deut 22:28-29; Deut 21:10; 2Sam 12:8.
        The Bible contains stories of bible heroes such as Abraham, Samson, David, Solomon etc who continuously engaged in premarital sex without any reprimand whatsoever from God. Hell, at one point God even offered to give David many more concubines(equals more premarital sex) if he so desired. Not so sure but I think Esther also had premarital sex.

        And no, I can’t readily think of any New Testament verses right now but what does it matter? Or are you saying that the Old Testament is not “scriptures “?

            WOW!!!
            It’s quite funny of you to suggest that I don’t understand scriptures considering the fact that I backed my argument with SUPPORTING scriptures but you didn’t…not even one. I also wonder why you didn’t react to the Bible verses I gave. But then, maybe you’re right. Maybe I really don’t understand… Because I sincerely can’t fathom how a God described as an all powerful creator of the universe would have a “kryptonite” in iron chariots, or not be able to just simply provide inhabited land space for his people rather than commanding unimaginable genocide and manslaughter. How can a God described as being “not a man that he should lie” or “…that he should repent”, author falsehood and instigate people to lie, as well as regret his actions and change his mind every now and then, mostly on the “Better” judgements of “lesser ” mortals? A God who claims not to tempt men(which he does quite often) and described as giving/respecting free will, yet overrides men’s free will by manipulating them to sin only so he can create an excuse to punish the innocent-SADIST, anyone? A God who promotes religious extremism as opposed to “evangelism”? A God who is described, in the same scriptures as an egomaniac whose jealousy and fear of man’s prowess takes the better of him always? A supposedly loving God who tortures and punishes the innocent for the crimes of their fathers and forefathers, even for “crimes” as trivial as forgetting to circumcise the child. The list 0f Bible inconsistencies, discrepancies and contradictions is endless. I can list at least 20 more by rote, backing them with scriptures if you there want.
            Now let me, for argument’s sake indulge you by accepting that I really don’t understand the scriptures and you do… hoping that you’d be kind enough to ENLIGHTEN me by answering the following:
            *a yes/no would suffice but feel free to answer however you please as long as you keep it objective.
            1. Does the Old Testament constitute the Scriptures just as well as the New Testament?
            2. When the Bible, especially the New Testament mentions Gods laws, is it referring to the laws given through Moses to the Israelites?
            3. Are the laws concerning premarital sex, as mentioned in the Bible verses I gave you previously, included in Gods laws?
            4. Would you say that the New Testament nullifies the Old Testament for it’s “fulfillment’s” sake, thereby rendering it obsolete?
            5. Can there be sin/transgressions without the law? If yes, how so?
            6. Can you cite at least one scripture that specifically condemns premarital sex?(not sexual immorality)
            7. Does God change? Or is the Old Testament God different from the New Testament God?
            8. To the best of your knowledge and borrowing from the WISDOM you alluded to in your rebuttal, wouldn’t you say that pushing the notion that God permits some sins during certain periods of time and not during others seems not only absurdly questionable but also highlights the inconsistency of God’s character?
            9. What is A Christian to do when he/she encounters a situation requiring either of two contradictory options as provided in the Bible? E.g.: should a Christian defend himself against an asailant or leave himself at the assailant’s mercy since the Bible clearly suggests both?

            At this point, I think it’s best I react to some of your points as I go along. Let me fisrt categorically state here that the New Testament says nothing about premarital sex. Although, There exist some modern bible versions that that mistranslated the original Greek word pornei, which means sexual immorality, into the word fornication. Pornei(or sexual immorality) is a generic term for sex with a woman in her period, adultery, temple prostitution, pederasty, sodomy, bestiality, and the likes, many of which God prohibited in both old and New Testament.
            I’ll take on your points 1 at a time.

            A. “Wisdom tells us that the New is better than the Old…and the New fulfils the Old. And the practices of several people in the past that God permitted them to do is not what we are to do in Christianity.”

            I’m no expert in the English language but I’m quite certain that “fulfillment” of the Old by the New implies nothing short of a positive confirmation of the Old. It’s a perfect validation of the Old. How anyone would interpret this to mean that the New nullified the Old beats me. I don’t know which scriptures you drew this from, but Jesus stated that he did not come to abolish the law. Key word being “abolish”. What this means is that the The Old laws still stand, right?
            Could you please mention Bible passages listing the “old school” practices Christians are now forbidden to do? I know some, but I bet premarital sex isn’t included.
            Sometimes I pity Christians because the New Testament puts them in a terrible dilemma with such verses as Matt5:17-19; Luke16:17 where Jesus specifically underscored the supreme permanence of the LAW despite popular Christian doctrines annulling the supreme authority of the Law.

            B. “Because of the hardness of their hearts, God allowed them to do certain things…including divorce.”

            I dedicated over an hr scouring through the Bible to find any scriptures supporting this claim of yours but found none. I don’t want to believe you were referencing Lk16:18; Matt5:32 and/or Mk10:11-12 because all three condemned adultery and not divorce. You don’t need to be a theologian to see that Jesus was okay with Divorce but not Adultery. According to Jesus, divorce is not okay only when done on any other grounds besides chastity as opposed to the Old Testament where men could divorce their wives for the flimsiest of excuses. I state again that Jesus never had a problem with Divorce and I dare you to cite one scripture supporting your claim. All Jesus did was streamline the terms for divorce.
            Secondly, why would God even be bothered by “hardness of man’s heart” after all, man’s heart had always been hard throughout the ages. In fact, man’s heart has only grown harder over time. Since when does the hardness of heart determine what’s right or wrong?

            C. “My desire is not to get you to do what would require a new heart to do, which is to submit to God’s law.”

            Is it not the prerogative of Christians to do what’s necessary to win over “lost souls” like me? Why wouldn’t you want to get me to do what would require a new heart?
            And what exactly is this Gods law that I have to submit to? You must admit that its almost impossible for any genuine Christians to figure such out since obeying anyone of Gods laws would always certainly put you in violation of another. What’s a man to do?

            D. “The carnal mind can neither understand nor submit to God’s law, unless their hearts are first transformed and their minds renewed. And that comes by the grace of God, when they have heard the truth, and God has granted them the grace to receive it and understand and obey.”

            I’m sure by “carnal mind”, you probably mean me(or average Joe), which raises some questions:
            1. Who made my mind carnAl?
            2. Who is to blame if I’m yet/unable to receive this “grace to understand and obey”?

            Bear in mind that the Bible says that it’s entirely up to God who gets saved and who doesn’t. What this means is that No matter how noble my intentions are for seeking God’s truth and love, God could choose to intentionally keep it from me just because. So who’s at fault? Is it the genuine seeker of truth and understanding, or the one who consciously and sometimes, painstakingly, keeps them away from the seeker but reveals it to some chosen “others”? (See Matt 11:27; Mark 4:11-12; Jn6:44; Job). And there in lies another irony. These “others” still end up with as much scriptural ineptness as the guy next door. WTH?

            E. “A debate with me about this will not give you the heart that is needed to appreciate the truth. ”

            If a debate(is it?) wouldn’t do this, then I wonder what will. Have you ever won a soul(the great commission)? I ask this because I don’t see how a lost soul can be won over without a “debate”? You don’t expect these souls to just swallow anything you tell them hook, line and sinker, without questioning your belief systems when you’re are actually questioning theirs. Furthermore, , the Bible insists that debates are healthy for Christians. Even Paul was called The Great Debater. You’d also agree that the Jesus temptation in the wilderness was one hell of a debate.
            If you’re unable to critically defend the faith you proclaim, how then can you preach to the unbelievers? Contrary to popular opinion, Christians are not supposed to “just have faith”, but to know what they believe and why they believe it. They are commanded to give answers to those who ask. The Bible commended the Berean Christians who never let the teachers teach them nonsense(Anikulapo). The way I see it, debates are unavoidable for any professing Christian. Even God offered for us to “reason together” with Him. The following scriptures would help better appreciate the relevance of debates to the xtian faith. 2Cor10:4,5; Matt28:19; Acts1:8; Col4:5,6; 1Peter3:15; Titus1:9; Jude1:3,9;2Tim2:4; Rom10:14;
            Like my pastor would say,”Christians avoid debates for fear of admitting that sometimes, they wrong or just don’t have the answers”.

            I’m sorry for rambling.
            God bless you too.

Contrary to popular opinion, Christians are not supposed to “just have faith”, but to know what they believe and why they believe it. They are commanded to give answers to those who ask. The Bible commended the Berean Christians who never let the teachers teach them nonsense(Anikulapo). The way I see it, debates are unavoidable for any professing Christian. Even God offered for us to “reason together” with Him. The following scriptures would help better appreciate the relevance of debates to the xtian faith. 2Cor10:4,5; Matt28:19; Acts1:8; Col4:5,6; 1Peter3:15; Titus1:9; Jude1:3,9;2Tim2:4; Rom10:14;
    Like my pastor would say,”Christians avoid debates for fear of admitting that sometimes, they wrong or just don’t have the answers”.

    I’m sorry for rambling.
    God bless you too.

        Ah Han! Auntie Ufuoma, U took it too far. U didn’t hv 2 insult him. U should hv just made ur point by correcting him wif scriptures. This kind of attitude that gives s Christian in bad name. I know how scary it is to talk scripture with an Aetheist who kno hw 2 quote it. Even devil can quote too. I found myself in a similar situation during evangelism. I will tell U d story another day. Very interesting. But all I know is that even with the evil and scripture to back it up, I still know my God and he is not evil to me because I have a personal relationship of pure love with him. No atheist can chake my faith. 
        As for U @bkd.
        R U a xtian or atheist. I was shocked when U say  U hav a pastor. U sound too atheist to be a xtian. My advice for U is to seek a relationship with God and all the truth U seek will be revealed. Bible said seek1st kingdom of God and everything else will be added. It worked for me, it can work for you. Just ask God to enter your heart. And please be careful the way you talk about God so that you don’t blasphemous and put curse on yourself. Confess your sins and ask for forgiveness.  ‎
        God bless. ‎

        Bkd was really clear about his points. I’m really disappointed in the response as I was looking forward to it. How does calling someone a swine and copying and pasting scripture help? I don’t remember Jesus doing any of that. He calls us and gently teaches us the truth, inviting us to see beyond our unbelief which I’m guessing has a lot to do with the doubts and questions we all have. I did not see any blasphemy against God to warrant any insults but valid questions coming from a person who most likely has a deep personal story.
        Ufuoma, this is not teaching, and it most definitely isn’t rooted in Love.

        Bkd, I understand you, I truly do. I hope you have gotten closer in your journey with Christ. I know you are on it because you are questioning, you are truly searching. And he that searches will find. Very soon (if you haven’t already), you’ll find the identity and unconditional love that encompasses and fills you up with joy and happiness.

        If you have already, keep growing, keep shining and stay blessed. 🙂

            No need. As my responses would probably get me named something worse than swine as you’re not willing to be objective as previously noticed.

            If Bkd is interested in honest conversation though, we can talk privately.

    I was a frequent commenter with those details. Until the website was revamped.
    I tried signing up official with these same details I’d been commenting with I.e. the aforementioned. It keep saying: username and email already in use. So I tried login in, it said incorrect password. I tried reseting password. And a link was sent to my mail. I put in a new password and then I tried to login in again it said incorrect password.
    I’ve repeated this password reset cycle twice now, still no change. Whsat do I do at this point? Btw I receive emails from TNC.
    Thanks.

    There are many loopholes in this logic/post. I don’t mind that. What I don’t understand is the the lack of clarity, of the audience you’re speaking to and the context too, and also, as usual, the attitude we put out that seeks not to understand the gaps, but to assume that we have it all covered.
