Life is not football, even though some people like to think of themselves as Players!

Is it wrong to sleep with multiple people?

Let’s find out!

Although many young people today would like to believe that being sexually liberated gives them the freedom to get active with as many sexual partners as possible, is it really worth the risk?
We’re now in the 21st century, people are allowed to be as open minded as possible where sex is concerned. One night stands and open relationships are all the rage amongst young people.
Especially in tertiary institutions, which is where most young people experience their first sexual encounter.

What does it mean to have multiple sexual partners?

Multiple sexual partners can refer to having more than one partner at once or over a period of time. Having several sexual partners can be a wonderful experience if there is consent and no danger to those involved.
This might entail switching between different sexual partners. It could also refer to having multiple sexual partners at the same time.
Sex with multiple partners in a setting where everyone involved knows what they’re getting into, allows the parties involved to prepare themselves and be adequately protected. But if you really think about it, that’s hardly ever the case amongst young people these days.
People with multiple sexual partners are more likely to get caught up in cheating scandals than those with single partners.

Let’s be honest, if your boyfriend or girlfriend walked up to you to say
“Babe, I want to sleep with other people”
You probably wouldn’t take it very well.

This is why most people go behind the back of their partners to have sexual relations with other people thereby putting everyone involved at risk.

What are these risks exactly?

Your risk of HPV can increase if you have unprotected intercourse with several persons in a short period of time. According to the US CDC, HPV is the most prevalent STI. This is because a lot of HPV-positive persons don’t exhibit any symptoms but can still spread the infection through intercourse. The possibility that HPV may cause cancer adds to the fear.
Let’s not forget other STIs like HIV and AIDS.
Condoms might protect you from STIs but we all know, vaginal sex is not the only form of sexual act that most young people have grown accustomed to recently.
Do not believe the lies that say oral or anal sex or sexual activity is necessary for the transmission of STDs. Through tiny incisions in your mouth, anus, or the outside regions of your genitalia, many viruses and bacteria that cause STDs can enter your bloodstream.
All it would take is a single promiscuous act in secret for your sexual partner to contact these life threatening infections and then pass them to you!

So no matter how much you trust your partner, always check up on their STD status and make conscious efforts to protect yourself from contracting anything that they might not be telling you about.

The idea that most men have much more sexual partners than women is a common fallacy concerning promiscuity. According to research, the average guy has had approximately seven sexual partners by the time he is 44, while the average woman has had about four. 9 percent of women and 33 percent of males say they’ve had more than 10 sexual partners overall.
The influence of these high risk behaviours on one’s emotional health involves making risky decisions that increase risk, which has an effect on your emotional health as well.

Sex is not child’s play. Your purpose as young students should always be about your studies as well as growing mentally to ensure your success.
Sexual intimacy can wait until you are married and should be reserved only for those matured enough to bare the consequences.

So watch out boys and girls, try not to get too crazy about sex!
Of course I’m not saying there are mo benefits to sex itself, that’s just a topic for another time!👌🏽
