People have different reasons for being celibate.
For Uriel Oputa, her decision to be celibate came after a bad break up and from the moment she made up her mind, she has never looked back.
Three years later, she doesn’t regret her decision.
The choice of being celibate came from a break up. I was in a five years relationship that ended in a nasty way. So, I said to myself that I’m not going to allow any man to make me feel like I have been sexually used. It wasn’t really a religious thing for me, it was because I didn’t want to be hurt. That was why I said, no more sex.
Three years later, I have not had sex.
Even if I’m in a relationship, he has to marry me before I give him the goods and that was my rule. And when guys find out about my rule, they run immediately without looking back.
Confessing that there are positive and negative sides to it, Uriel says that the positive side is that she is more aware of her body and being certain of what she wants and not.
“And it just makes me more confident because if i could stay away from sex for three years, I can definitely do anything. I am confident that there is nothing a guy can come and tell me that will make me open my legs for him. You have to come better and know me. I’ve gone past that level because I have searched myself and I know who I am,” she said.
