WOW | What You Think

sex before marriage

When it comes to premarital sex, it appears that although people are more liberal to the idea, they still refrain from openly speaking about it. WOW, talks to women from different walks of life to find out their views on the social acceptability of sex before marriage.

It is very difficult to generalise but for me sex, in general, should be accepted and so should premarital sex (age and consent being factors). As for social acceptability of premarital sex, I feel people still view it as a matter of disgrace. No offence but this to me is an epitome of hypocrisy, where it’s okay to practice but wrong to speak or discuss it. Marriage should not be the license for love and sex. Let’s get over this.
