Losing my virginity

Catchy title, eh?

Yeah, I think so too… /:)

This may or may not be a tell-all tale. A few days ago, someone said on a friend’s blog and then on my timeline that all the bloggers just seem to be blogging for shock value now. I know there’s this way all them shocking tell-all tales can make readership, commentaries and subscriptions on a hitherto little-known blog soar. You know, those controversial topics/discussions that have comments in their hundreds on theToolsman’s blog/site? Yeah? Or that post on Terdoh’s blog over this last weekend? (almost 1000 comments!!) Or remember that other slim girl’s post that went on to trend worldwide on twitter, with it’s own hashtag too?! *sprinkling ugwu leaves around* hehehe

Well, what writer doesn’t want some level of exposure and acclaim? And who doesn’t want some level of popularity, at least? The knowledge that there are people who greatly value your words and take them to heart? Who doesn’t want that kind of far-reaching influential ‘power’?…

*sigh*

Well, that may or mayn’t be me. I won’t deny or admit that’s what this is about. You’ll just have to read and find out for yourself. And maybe at the end of this, you can even tell me whether or not this falls into that category.

Now, where do I begin this tale of mine?… The beginning? Ok, fine. Lehgo!

Well, I’ve always been a pastor’s kid. The term actually defined me for a bit, especially back in high school- my nickname in certain circles was omo pastor. For as long as I’ve known, until very recently, my life has been centred around church. I mean, I was born while my father was studying in the seminary and following that, we actually lived within the church premises until I was ten. Now, as expected, virtually everyone in church knew all the pastor’s kids and seeing as church was really big growing up there was almost nowhere I would go where I wasn’t known as an omo pastor. Heck, today I still randomly meet people I’ve never met previously who recognise me from back then or who hear my surname and ask if I’m truly the son of my father. Well, not literally sha, but you get the picture.

Why have I started my tale with this and what’s it got to do with that controversial title? Here’s why. Growing up, due to my ‘omo pastor status’, one phrase I heard more times than I wish to ever remember is: All pastors’ kids are the worst. It always came in different variations but the idea was always the same. And almost always, it came with examples given with dramatic emphasis of some pastor’s kid(s) somewhere or the other who did this or that that even an unbeliever’s kid would never do… *smh*

I’m not here to admit or debunk this theory… What I will say about this though is that I know quite a lot of omo pastor’s who are upright and well behaved, at least, outwardly. And not because of their parent’s ministry either but because it’s who they’ve consciously chosen to be. I personally believe that in describing human behaviour, making blanket statements and using generalisations are unacceptable. That you or someone else knows some pastor’s daughter who got involved with drugs or a bishop’s son who is into yahoo yahoo, doesn’t then mean ALL pastor’s kids are that way, does it?!

Okay, moving on… to me… For as long as I can remember, I’ve been seen as the kid in my family who wanted to ‘escape’. Artistic, adventurous and having a potential wild-streak is how I would’ve been described growing up and so I was the one who was constantly monitored and hawked-over (for whatever reason, I came to the conclusion that it was so I wouldn’t ruin the ‘family image’)… X_x

I wasn’t allowed to go to a boarding school after passing common entrance in primary 5 cos I was “too young/small”. Got admission into King’s College the next year, but ended up a day student all my six years there. Then I tried to get into ABU Zaria in my first Jamb attempt ’cause I heard they have one of the best art schools and got accused of trying to ‘run away’ (I passed but the results of everyone in my centre got cancelled). I ended up getting cajoled to pick Unilag in my next attempt and now I’m a ‘proud’ Unilag alumnus. *sigh* I almost wasn’t allowed to go serve when I was posted to Katsina but… Nah! Me I wasn’t going to stand for that. E don come wan dey too much dat time… Are you getting my drift here? All my siblings, by the way, went to boarding houses far from home. Same thing with higher institutions. Na only me dem tie join wrapper throughout.

It wasn’t until I got into ‘Lag that I truly became free to make (some) decisions for myself. And like a caged bird set free, I revelled in that freedom. Ol’ boi, I did and undid o! Went clubbing for the first time in my life. First girlfriend… Ok, this one was actually really stupid. Lemme spell it out for you:

Day 1: Met chic for the first time through some friends. Pretty girl, I noticed…
Day 2: Hung out a bit with mutual friends
Day 3: Mutual friends and mine who saw us together the previous evening tell me that it’s kinda obvious “…say she dey feel you die”
Day 4: We go clubbing together. It’s my first time in a club ever…
Day 5: I ask her out, she says yes!

5 days, yo! *rolling eyes* Yeah, ridiculous, I know. Especially for someone who’s always been about serious relationships and never been one for flings. Moving on… Joined my first dance group (outside church) in which I danced alongside one very dark-skinned dude called Wande. Amazing dancer he was but he’s now a singer. Back then, he went by the name Black Wand 😉 We acted/danced in our first (and last) movie, Tunde Kelani and Mainframe’s Campus Queen. Landed my first major role in a tv soap that same year… You sha get the drift of “I revelled in my freedom”, shey? Ehen…

I bet at this point, people be wondering so what has all this got to do with the title and when do we get to the juicy stuff nah?! Cool ya blood jor! Baby steps, yo, baby steps…

Okay, let’s fast-track things a bit. Present-day. I came on twitter actively about february this year and one of the things I noticed was the edginess… the near-raw sexuality of a lot of the terrain. Lotsa weird twit pics, hashtags and twitter lingo almost had me running scared again but I decided that I was finally going to just stick it and make some sense out of the madness, and maybe even get something positive out of it. It’s how I was exposed to the work of some amazing and talent writers which then inspired me to start this here blog of which I’m very proud… Oh, I deviate again? Sorry…

The sexuality, abi? Okay. Well, I saw/see people talking a lot about sex and stuff with frankness and honesty and I was like Ok, cool, whatever makes you happy. But when I started seeing people bashing my personal choice of sexual orientation, I thought it was sad, real sad. And perhaps needed to be addressed and that there is largely why I’m writing this post.

You see, we live in an era where the opinionated people with the ‘biggest’ voices seem to dictate the way the rest of us ‘little people’ live our lives. Peer pressure is evident everywhere around us, some positive, more negative. I can’t even have an unpopular sexual preference without being judged and bashed on anymore. And so, I’m writing this post to stand up for what I believe in. I’m not trying to shove it down anyone’s throat o, neither am I trying to put anyone who doesn’t subscribe to my decisions or preferences down. I’m just here to state who I am and ask that you accept me and the other people like me without judging me/us. Same as we have (largely) accepted everyone else.

Ladies and gentlemen, I am unashamedly, and entirely by choice, a virgin

I made the decision to ‘keep myself’ until marriage a long time ago, sometime during my teens. It was a conscious and well thought-out one and seeing as I’ve decided to put myself out there like this, I owe anyone reading this the truth about why… I chose this path according to the convictions of my faith. I’m a christian.

I’m a firm believer in To each, his own… and like I said earlier, this is not about putting anyone with contrary opinions down and so I choose to not continue along ‘religious’ lines in this discourse so as to respect people with different beliefs within and outside my faith.

I will say this though, staying this way has been entirely by God’s grace. I’m a proper open-eye omo-boy. I know wassup weller. I’m not claiming to be a saint here. I’ve been in relationships before and I understand the phrase Body no be wood. I’ve had my fair share of near-misses. There’ve been times where it really wasn’t by my will that I didn’t follow through on well-laid plans (not necessarily mine o) and so, I repeat, it’s entirely by God’s grace in my life. I say this moreso because I realise there are people who are not virgins, not because they don’t believe in the concept or decided they wanted it so, but because that decision was made on their behalf, in a lot of cases, forcefully and I commiserate with any such.

In conclusion, I’m coming out to say this as testimonial to the fact that it is definitely possible to be cool folk today with no deformities socially,physically, psychologically, physiologically or emotionally and still be virgin or celibate. The default reaction I get when I tell people I’ve never had sex is Yeah, Right!! However, I personally know many, many people like me who are likeable, correct people, well accepted by society who have remained virgins by choice. They would not all declare it to the whole world like this because they deem it unnecessary. I, however, am of the opinion that too many young ‘uns today make the decision to do away with their virginity like a soiled diaper out of the misconception that everyone is doing ‘it’ or that if you aint doing it, you must be some kinda weirdo. They need to know this, that You don’t HAVE TO be that way if you really don’t want to and that Not everyone is doing it

After all, I’m not.

I am OlaToxic and I’m unashamedly and purposely a Virgin

I lost my virginity to one of my father’s boys. He was molesting me and would always pray with me for forgiveness after each ordeal*spits* by d time I became a teenager I was flinging my body…. Nva had sex wiv one guy more than 4times till I met my present partner(first true relationship ever) sex never got better, I understood sex, I stopped hating sex, he was giving the kinda sex the devil tries to tempt me with eva since I gave up my old nature. I wish I were a virgin in all innocence of the word(Yh those of u doing every oda thing apart from total penetration, u r not virgins)… I regret not being a virgin despite the fact that I just got real sex(love-making,fucking, adventure etc) buh it’s not worth losing my salvation. I’ll keep waiting till i’m married. If u av not seared yur conscience with hot iron, u must agree that sex is over-rated nd comes wit so much trash wen u get it at d wrong time. All these long grama means I am proud of virgins, I envy them and i love this post. And team abstinence till I marry.

    *sigh* I can’t believe all these sex myths still exist. @bukunola, u dnt have to ‘release’ ‘sperm’ at intervals. SEMEN is a natural product of the body hence its gotten rid of when its not ejaculated. T doesn’t build up and cause madness( the things I’ve heard ehn), neither will the testicles swell from semen storage. Since its ‘made’ from natural substances like proteins, water, sugars and all, its broken down and ‘recycled’. Dnt let anyone deceive you.
    I swear, I probably have to tackle all these ‘myths’ someday. It just saddens me. That’s how one yeye boy will come and tell one dopemu girl that he will just do it once, she won’t get pregnant. And d ode too will open leg. The things we hear in Med School ehn. God dey…

        1.spermatogenesis reduces temporarily when semen is not being let out. 2.Semen is made up of sperm and about 3 different kind of fluids from about 3 different kinds of reproductive organs and dis semen ONLY gets produced DURING sexual activity and wen ejaculation is anticipated. 3. Hence these sperm cells(they’re cells u see) stay in d testis in the absence of sexual activity and I assure you they don’t take much space.

      Oooh God bless you Terdoh. Finally. I wonder why people have decided to be so myopic. Sex is more spiritual than physical. When a girls hymen is broken by the penetration of a man’s penis, blood spills on both of dem, and omo, na blood covenant be dat. ok, m just trying to be scary. But serzly, dont people wonder why couples who have been married 20, 30 years and over, look like each other? its because they have done the thing so tey their soul and bodies have ‘merged’ and like the bible says, they have indeed become one flesh.
      wen a man finishes having sex, he is not the same. that is because two things leave him. his sperm, and his spirit. a fraction of his spirit. think about it, u reach climax abi orgasm, and den u collapse and sleep one serious sleep. sumtyms, 1 hour the guy is still sleeping…on top 10, maximum 15mins activity, which is supposed to be pleasurable o, no be sey person chop firewood. the amount of strength a man loses during sex is equal to the amount of strength he loses when he runs round a standard football field 30 times. and i didnt just make that up. So if u sleep with 300 girls, u don give share ur spirit with all 300 of dem. no wonder life expectancy has dropped…..ok, my comment is starting to look lyk anoda blog sef. i dey go.

    Dogs have sex, as do mosquitoes. Big deal.

    Why should sex connect ‘souls’? I have never seen a direct scriptural reference anyway. If it is a sin, then sin is sin, whether it is an unprovoked slap or a three-way.

    Sex is a simple, primal need.it involves no heart or brains.

    That you do it does not make you special (no matter what Television wants you to believe), that you refrain, does not make you special.

      I’m obviously not going to preach on someone else’s blog, but there are many resources out there, shedding more light on the importance of abstinence and the dangers of pre-marital sex.. Sex is obviously more than a joining of bodies. The fact that one doesn’t know, understand, believe, or accept that truth, doesn’t make it untrue 🙂

      2. “If you see any brother or sister commit a sin that does not lead to death, you should pray and God will give them life. I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. There is a sin that leads to death. I am not saying that you should pray about that.” (1 Jn 5:16)

    Once u pop,you can stop..when you have reason.
    Good enough reason.
    Many young people lose their virginity because they didn’t know better..who doesn’t want to keep themselves for a special person?
    This is the issue..be thankful if your parents made you realise the depth and importance of sex.
    Some kids have to educate themselves and learn bitter lessons
    Don’t blame people who are not virgins because few of them ever go all out with the intent of doing it and losing it.
    Kids are misled by peer pressure,coerced and sometimes feel the need to conform and gain acceptance
    If you’ve had sex you sooner realise that outside the confines of marriage it makes you feel dirty,used and unwholesome..it dips self confidence and starts of vicious cycle of re affirmation of worth.that is the basis behind popping and inability to stop thereafter..u need someone to make u feel sexually attractive to remind u that u r worth loving and then sex feels like love because indeed something is shared..
    But if you meet God and realise that its better to please him by staying free of sexual sin then u can truly find the grace and a reason to stop..
    You can decide to stay celibate..its almost as good as being a virgin..and somehow it has a deep impact on ur future partner..knowing that u did this thing and after knowing how it felt to orgasm you decided to keep yourself for someone who had proven their commitment before God and man.so u can stop if you have popped..and u will feel better for it…

      Reasons..

      Sometimes people fail/forget to look at the (root)causes of events. Nothing “just happens like that”. Sex was created by God, and it was intended for good. Everyone likes sex. But when one is found to go about looking for it, and dishing it out freely.. something’s wrong somewhere! Everyone wants to love and feel loved; no (mentally healthy) person enjoys being used.. literally.

      From experience, I can say that: When you see a girl messing around (I am a girl, so I will speak for girls in a very general sense now), you can rest assured something serious/terrible must have happened at a crucial point in her life.. that’s a fact.

      I used to wonder about myself and a few of my other close female friends.. who were long caught in the trap.. you saw the manifestation (sexual activity, no-strongs-attached involvements, abusive relationships) and wondered.. some would said “birds of a feather..” (which was obviously not the case, for reasons too numerous to mention and explain now), until the common denominator was found: sexual abuse in our childhood/ teenage-years.

      Unless and until you address certain issues, you will forever wonder where and how it all began. Ignoring it never works (.. as it still lies dormant within, spreading itself like a poisonous fluid, destroying more than you were even aware you possessed.. and- of course- ruining future relationships; especialy marriage!)

      A note for Christians (who want to stop, and amend their ways- sorry, really don’t mean to sound all dramatic) Repenting alone doesn’t do the work either. Praying is one thing, breaking the ties another; and forgiving yet another. Perhaps speaking to a person you respect or whose advice/word you can take would do you some good. I thought myself “Ok” for a long time after I had re-dedicated my life to God, just to “fall back into the trap”. Should you decide to start afresh, you really want to make sure it’s on a solid foundation. Going through the steps with a proper counsellor mgiht be a good idea.

      Enough said. I apologize for this long post.

    This is really a breath of fresh air considering that virgins are looked down and frowned upon these days. I believe everyone has their opinions and personal choices. If I choose to be a virgin, its my choice and so I don’t expect you to judge me because I’m a virgin just like I’m not judging you because you have sex. Very simple. My life.. My choice.

    Having said that, I think is sex is deeper than we all consider it to be. Its a connection between two people. During sex, the two people are one. After they’re done it’s inevitable for them to not have a bit of each other in them. Like they have something of the other person in them. It may not necessarily be a soul tie but it definitely is a tie because two bodies are involved. You get my drift?

    Now I want to commend the writer of this post. It takes a lot of strength and determination to have remained a virgin for this long. I personally think its harder for male virgins than female virgins but we still thank God for his grace. Choosing to remain a virgin for as long as we please is totally a personal choice and there are definitely reasons for that so can people please stop judging us. Thanks 😀

      • DeMorrieaux says:

        After abuse (emotional, physical, sexual.. whether it was prolonged or not) certain things happen which need to be dealt with properly. You may go through life thinking “I’m fine” but having dealt only with the symptoms rather than the root-issues, your “past” is bound to “catch up with you”.
        Typically, after sexual abuse, girls either shut down completely/ isolate themselves/ have trust issues.. or the exact opposite happens: they open up completely (as they do no longer hold a healthy self-esteem/ self-value).. sex or anything related doesn’t really matter anymore.
        Of course you have cases of sheer neglect in childhood, or the absence of emotional closeness etc..

        But buttom-line remains the same: No girl would just open herself up to any-/everyguy because she loves “sex”.. Sexual closeness is not a human-need; love and belonging are.

        It’s definitely a distortion..

        @Me: I believe you can and (when you do get married) are going to give your Virginity to him. It was forcefully and unwillingly taken from you. The mere fact that it was not consensual in any way, shape or form in my eyes and I believe in the eyes of God, makes you STILL a virgin. Although physically it may be gone, emotionally you are very complete. There is a HUGE difference between “having sex” and “making love”.

    Good for you!

    I still think that preserving virginity till marriage does not automatically mean the Virgin maniac is responsible, GODLY or would even be committed or faithful in marriage. Maybe it shows some firmness….but again there are loads of non-virgins that are firm; People who never smoked, never drank alcohol, never stole, never really did any ‘bad things’ but only consented to having sex when they really did not even understand what they were doing.

    I have met loads of virgin girls who have NEVER HAD SEX but give the best BJs. Set aside the dictionary for a bit….Are these people really still virgins simply because they have never been penetrated?

    We may lie to the world and break all the rules in secret and preserve only those that can be proven like…..virginity in girls…..God sees the heart.

    Not to take anything away from the post, I think it’s great that there are still virgin boys especially…I’m not just a virgin maniac …happy to miss it!!

    Condoms can prevent STD’s pregnancy and all other stuff but CANNOT prevent Demonic transfer.

    I preach abstinence but if u feel ur grace can’t carry u thru den stick to one partner but God’s grace is always sufficient.

  147. ShirleyA says:

    I am new to this post and have read most comments so I shall post mine

    1. To those who posted insults or any form of derogatory comment: two words- GUILT and ENVY!
    Your indiscipline or choice not to abstain from premarital sex makes you feel guilty, so you become irritated at one who has made a choice to, therefore, you are probably envious which makes you angry and in order to try to make yourself “feel better” you live in DENIAL and further post such comments. Don’t worry, there’s still hope and with GOD all things are possible and if you are happy with your choice, GOOD FOR YOU! To each his own!

    2. To those who say girls who engage in every sexual activity without penetration are not virgins. To non-virgins who say this: YOU ARE WRONG! This is also a way of consciously or unconsciously trying to make yourself “feel better” YES THEY ARE! To be disvirgined one has to engage in the TOTAL EXPERIENCE of sexual intercourse which includes penetration and this is the SOLE determinant. However metaphorically speaking, one cannot call herself a virgin if she keeps engaging in other forms of sexual activity, so to the virgins who think the same: everyone makes mistakes and there’s still hope. However, they are still intact!

    3. To those who are resilient in their choice to remain celibate till marriage I say: KUDOS TO YOU!
    It is so easy to follow the crowd, so easy to conform because of peer pressure or lack of strong will, so easy to give into the whims of the flesh! The HEROES remembered today were not CROWD PLEASERS! They fought for what they believed to be morally right and stood their ground amidst insults, ridicule and other forms of persecution! CONFORMISTS ARE EASILY FORGOTTEN! If what you are doing is morally right, why the insult? Why the condemnation? Why do you care? How is it your business?

    So the moral of the story is this: if someone wants to abstain till marriage it is his/her choice, such people should be admired and encouraged because it takes strong will, discipline and character to do so.

    P.S: Any derogatory reply or comment after this post will definitely prove my first point.
    God Bless.

    I think it’s commendable.

    Especially in the 21st century where every sitcom bomards the psyche with innuendo and characters plotting or jumping in and out of bed. With every other series pushing the limits on sex scenes and every other song titilating the mind, it’s incredibly hard to hold such a conviction.

    Even harder for a writer with an imagination that can take things to all sorts of levels. Not to talk of raging hormones.

    Just cos a person decides to remain a virgin does not mean their hormones are going to agree without a fight.

    For me there are many reasons for virginity

    1)Avoidance of soul ties which happen admit it or not. Sex is more than just physical, spirits become tied, thus why a relationship without sex is easier to walk away from.
    2)Less complications when u finally do marry. Running into ex bedmates etc and feeling resurfacing etc Or in the case where a former bedmate becomes a neighbor,in law or colleague. A virgin does not have to worry about all that.
    3)No comparisons in the future of your spouse with a former bedmate in the form of flashbacks or “you’re not as good”, “you’re not as experimental. Which will create resentment conciously or subconciously. As virgins both spouse have no one to be jealous of, or compare their spouse to.
    4)Can with a clear conscience tell your teens “mom and dad waited” and tell them why they should and it’s benefits.
    5) If you can resist your sexual urges you’re more likely to control other urges.
    6) A virgin that got married at in late adulthood is more likely to stay faithful even when there’s an opportunity to cheat. If they could resist sex when they weren’t attached to anyone. More likely to remain monogamous.

    There are other reasons Biblically that previous commenters have touched upon so I won’t revisit them.

    Sex is great but WITHIN the confines of marriage. No matter what society says, no matter how they try to make fornication look normal,harmless,it is NOT.

    Why do u think they call it the “Walk of shame” when one party leaves the morning after back to their own home after a night of pre marital sex. That’s a secular term not a religious one.

    It’s a true fight to remain a virgin in this world. Everything around you tries to convince you to give in to the cravings, including ur own body and it really is an uphill battle. But like you said, it’s by the grace of God to do so.
