In a world and generation where sex before marriage is the norm, some people dare to be different by being celibate until they get married.
Amina, a fashion and media creative, who had her daughter at 18 years old, broke up with her daughter’s dad because she realized that as a christian, God didn’t want her to have sex outside marriage.
Its been 12 years of living a pretty normal and raising her daughter. According to Amina, you don’t have to have sex to survive or to prove freedom.
In a chat with BBC Minute, Amina shares four reasons to consider celibacy.
- You learn how to have self control
- You’re free from the emotional stronghold that sex brings and you’re able to look at someone without the rose-tinted.
- You get to weed out all the annoying time wasters who just want to have sex with you.
- You get to have an amazing deep and intimate connection with someone without having to have sex with them
