Kids are sexually aware from an early age. But most of us don’t really seem to give it the consideration or significance it demands. Rather, we’re concerned when we see our five-year-old playing games with sexual connotations, such as pretending to be a doctor or mimicking “mama, dad”. Even today discussing sex is still frowned upon. It is against our social and cultural norms for parents to discuss sex with their children.
Do you think we have enough knowledge regarding sex and family life? Sexual shame is planted on our lives but by outside sources. It’s our opportunity and responsibility to understand the limits, boundaries and agreements to uproot it.
Our modern Kerala Muslim brides and grooms have much more exposure to and access to sex-related content, from peer groups, magazines, movies, as well as the Internet. Sadly, despite their extensive knowledge of sex, contraceptives, and other related topics, they are still too young to comprehend both the emotional and physical aspects of sex.
Due to an increase in child sexual exploitation, adolescent pregnancy, and sex-related crimes, it is even more necessary for us to provide proper sex education so that Kerala Muslim boys and girls for marriage can shield our children from the torment and damage that inadequate sex information can deliver. Sex Education is about more than the act of sex or how to avoid unintended pregnancies; it covers a broader viewpoint that includes attitudes toward the opposite sex, gender roles, body shifts, and taking responsibility for our sexual decisions and partners.
It is an essential aspect of personal wellbeing and leading a healthy lifestyle. Although India had a vibrant and unrestricted sexual atmosphere in the old days, as illustrated in books such as the Kama Sutra, the temples of Khajuraho with their sexually explicit sculptures, and temple concubines living as a part of our ancient society, contemporary India is far more puzzled about its stance on sex. Despite the fact that we are one of the world’s most populous nations, we avoid talking about sex.
Probably it is because of this lack of understanding and reluctance on the part of parents and educators to speak to kids about sex that we have such high mortality rates during childbirth among young mothers who are themselves only entering their adolescent years. Illegal abortion clinics tend to naïve teenage patients who enter into sexual relationships without proper knowledge or preparation.
In India, societal pressure makes it difficult for young and single women who believe they are ready for sex to consult a doctor or a healthcare professional and learn how to practice safe sex. They also use abortion as a method of family planning, putting their health at risk at a young age. Another compelling strategy for having sex education in schools is the existing dangers of contracting sexually transmitted diseases, especially AIDS.
Unsafe sex may lead to unwanted parenthood, as well as the outbreak of infection and irreversible emotional harm to young minds. The unnatural repression of this sexual appetite has resulted in youth engaging in promiscuous conduct. It has led to sexual offences such as rapes and child abuse. Sex education can help kids realize the difference between a warm embrace and a careless touch. When we don’t talk about sex.
Let them know what is a good touch and bad touch instead of giving our children the impression that sex is bad or evil. This has an indirect impact on these children’s future married and family lives. They may find it difficult to embrace sex as a normal expression of love between partners after growing up believing that sex was a dirty word. Since most parents find it difficult to speak to their children about the birds and bees, educational institutions with parental help will play an important role in providing sex education. Educating the next generation about their role in society and family as sexual beings is very much essential.
