We have robbed the young of their innocence!
“Let them distribute them”, you shout; without even thinking about the repercussions of your statements.
“Yes let them have it… give it to them so that if they are doing it, they will do it safely”
Do we even realize what we have subjected our sons and daughters to,
We have given license to them to go ahead and dance the tango before they understand the steps.
Sex is something that not just one party, but both parties who partake in the act must enjoy.
Vaginas are not receptacles for male stimulations and penises are not wands that must be poked into every hole available.
The act of sex should be done with the underlining understanding that both parties must be pleased at the end of it,
Not that the male must erupt and dispense, while the female is left to wipe up herself after the male is finished.
Sex is an intimate dance, where two bodies are intertwined, which is not limited to the physical.
Emotions, spirits and minds are locked into one purpose – pleasing the other partner.
But what do we expect of our children, if we ourselves do not understand its intricacies.
Many times we have boast or felt proud about “knocking up dat one” or being “slapped up by that one”.
We have prostituted our bodies and have not requested pay,
We have claimed to enjoy sex, when we have not even tasted its luscious and succulent fruits.
But why not leave the children out of this,
Leave them to their naivety,
Save their innocence.
But no… we express our ignorance in songs and in movies,
We subject our children to crassness and think “dem fi kno dem tings ere”.
Look at them now,
What are the statistics?
Many of our daughters, starting from age eleven have children,
Many of our children are suffering from HIV/AIDS or have herpes, gonorrhea and syphilis.
And what about their mental states?
How can we convince ourselves that our children are fine, when they are engaging themselves in something that is way beyond the natural?
Instead of dealing with the cut, we wipe it with “sex education” and put on the band-aid of “condom distribution”.
So while the hurt and pain fester up, we as adults pat ourselves on the back for a job well done.Job well done… we have lost their innocence!
