Health – Youth And The Effects Of their Sexual Inclinations:

Wednesday, August 19, 2009 | comments

Campaigns against the infamous HIV-AIDS nemesis have failed to bring a major impact on the youth the world over. Ranging from constant media coverage of HIV-AIDS awareness, warnings from governmental and non-governmental organizations, providing incentives on contraceptives and yet these measures have not yielded the desired effect.

As a matter of fact, that pandemic has even spread at a quicker rate than ever before. The youth are the ones that have mostly been affected, mainly due to curiosity and failure to heed any warnings. Teenagers are known to always have a desired to ascertain their physical productivity and sexual maturity by experimenting in sex. Protected sex then fails to become an option in such situations, creating a favorable environment for the rapid spread of the HIV virus.

The role of peer pressure on the spread of the virus cannot be ignored. As peer group members seek to be accepted and prove their worth, they fall prey to sexual immorality since other members are also involved in the same vice. The youth tend to be swept with every new social trend in an effort to feel accepted.

Individuals in a bid to have new experiences which their counterparts have gone through will indulge in irresponsible sex. Parents and guarding should therefore teach their growing teenager about responsible behavior especially when it comes to sexual matters. Failure to do this, their children will not be able to resist the temptations of experimenting on sex.

Despite the flooding of the market with contraceptives like condoms and family planning pills; I still think that this shouldn’t be an alternative for abstinence. Self-restraint is the key to HIV-AIDS control and no other method or device shall replace it while the disease remains incurable.
