Is safe sex really safe? If it’s safe, then how safe it is? Can someone claim and prove condom use is absolutely effective from contracting STIs (Sexually Transmitted Infections), HIV/AIDS, or getting someone pregnant?
Today, it’s okay to respond to your sexual urge when it kicks, as long as you have a condom at hand—they call this “responsibility.” It’s okay to respond to your libido as long as you love each other—they call this “respect.” Sex has become so casual that its value is now reduced to temporary pleasure devoid of true respect and responsibility.
If you think highly of someone else’s welfare before you think of satisfying your sex drive, then that’s what true respect and responsibility is. Welfare means the good, safety, and protection for the person, the family, and the society he/she belongs to. Sadly, protection from getting STIs and getting pregnant are the kinds of protection girls and boys often think of. If you really want safe sex, then why not get married and be faithful?
“Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.” -Hebrews 13:4
