It is the most desirable physical encounter of human nature. Sex is an act that seeks to give life, encourages affection and reaches the pinnacle of indelible pleasures. A wonderful indulgence between two individual's who are defining their love and eternal commitment toward one another. Or, at least that is what it should be. However, sex has become a weapon of mass destruction, utilized for selfish motives and ultimately has become a method of enhancing social status and making money. Recently I heard a business advertisement on the radio to sell a new product. The interesting thing is that this company's strategy to promote the innovative, awesome and affordable product was to begin the radio voice-over with, "NEED SEX?" Then the voice-over transitions to a description of the product which had nothing to do with a sexual experience. The radio spot ended that way as well. I was absolutely appalled because it was a ridiculous and childish attempt to promote a useful commodity, in such a distasteful manner. If you have to use sex in order to gain the attention of others, then you should reconsider the value of what you have to offer. The fact that you would use a manipulative approach which could backfire and become a complete distraction to your initial objective is disgraceful. There is an abundance of sexual exploitation within entertainment and it becomes saddening when the business industry trades its integrity and professionalism for a few extra customers. What does it really all suggest? That as long as we have sex on our minds that we can be elevated in business and make clearer decisions regarding our personal and corporate purchases? Our American society has become so captivated with sex, money and the image of things that we've neglected to seek and appreciate the substance of life. We have eradicated a need for virtues and have embraced a depraved mentality. We have replaced a lifestyle of values, respect for others and self-discipline for social acceptance and style. Everything that is created has some good in it, but there is a point in which corruption attempts to invade that which was intended for good. I am against that corruption. For instance, let's consider this "Myspace" thing. I am able to appreciate the positive uses of networking and maintaining correspondence between long distance friends. And maybe for some, there is an opportunity for love and companionship. It's a fun and unique resource. However, I find it somewhat disconcerting when both, men and women, express their desire for a quality and faithful companion yet, they display the opposite within their identity. The average woman says, "I'm looking for a financially stable man, who is God fearing, respectful and wants more from me than just sex." Okay, that is a fair request but this same female has her myspace profile plastered with half-naked photos of herself in sexual poses. Based on how she represents herself, what is the first thing that this man is going to think about? Sex, of course.


She is asking a man to care for her in a fashion that she does not even regard herself as. If all you want is sex, then that's what you advertise, but it's hard to draw a certain type of person to you if that's not the quality personality that you depict. How you desire someone else to see you, is how you should see yourself. Ladies, if the only way you can gain the attention of a man is by proposing your body for viewing or physical pleasures, then you really had nothing to offer in the first place that would sustain the relationship and make him want to stay. The same goes for the gentlemen. When you get to a place in life and you are ready to settle, the type of woman that you want to be your wife is not someone who has been sexually exposed to several men. Therefore, why would you maintain a lifestyle with various sex partners and then when you are looking for Mrs. Right, she must be a classy virgin. What you dish out in life will come back to you. Now, I'm not saying that you can't embrace your sexuality and feel sexy; however, there is a fine line between selling sex and being sexy. Selling sex is derogatory and being sexy is to be confident in your identity as a male or female and recognizing it in others. Although I believe it is a beautiful thing, our society is abusing the purpose of sex in order to sell records, increase television ratings, draw crowds at the box office and climb the corporate ladder. Everything has a cause and effect, so ask yourself: "For what reason am I doing it? What am I gaining or what am I losing." As our world continues to sell us out on sex, our generations are purchasing increased sexual abuse, teen (and younger) pregnancies and STDs. Research shows that Black Americans make up 13 percent of the U.S. population but account for more than 50 percent of all new cases of HIV. The AIDS epidemic is not just in Africa anymore, its starring us right in our faces. But we continue to promote it, saying, "Have sex with as many people as possible, but just use protection and you'll be just fine." Sure go buy a box of condoms, but who is protecting the essence of your spirit, preserving the stability of your soul, and guarding the tenderness of your heart. This is not a religious issue, this is a life issue. For those of us who have experienced the consequences from it, we understand that sex goes beyond intercourse. It is, more importantly, a spiritual and emotional connection, in which you can either find yourself or lose yourself. Finding yourself, means that you have discovered the individual in which you become one with and you share your lives together. Losing yourself is when you give yourself to this person, to that person, and to whoever wants a turn. But when it's all said and done, what will be left of your self-worth when these partners have come and gone. This too, especially for women, can make it harder to let go. It is evident that sex really does sell, and maybe you read this column just because you saw the word "sex" at the header, but in the long run was it really worth? Did you gain anything for the betterment of your perception and actions? Where are the ladies and gentlemen who are not afraid to uphold standards and not allow society, mainstream entertainment and money to degrade the character of who they are and limit the potential for greater happiness in mind, body and spirit.
