Why i always talk about my virginity- Toyo Baby of Jenifa’s Diary
Olayode Juliana aka Toyo Baby in the popular series ‘Jenifa’s Dairy’, is one young and talented lady who knows her onions.
Presently engaged in a number of skills and entrepreneurship programmes, the actress talks about the major reason she vowed to remain a virgin until marriage.
“I opened up because God instructed me to. Some years ago, I was at Bible Study when He said He’ll open a door for me in the entertainment industry and that when He does I should use the platform to talk about sexual purity. I thank God for the grace and boldness to talk about it despite all odds and oppositions. I am doing it because it’s what God told me to do even before I started acting professionally, when I never imagined I’ll be on TV. There is a world out there that needs to hear the message of purity, lots of people have let go of their virginity thinking they are the only ones left and thinking it’s “old school”. I belong to a ministry, ‘Mine ministry’.”
Talking more about the ministry, she said:”Out of many other things we do, we are strong advocates of sexual purity. We have our World Virginity Day, marked second Saturday of June every year. I believe that someone needs to know that he or she is not alone in this journey and that even if you’re not a virgin you can be sexually pure by making up your mind never to do it again till marriage.
We need to raise our voice of purity to save the present generation and the once after us so that virginity and purity will not become a tale of the past.”
On sex before marriage, she said, ” Sex before marriage makes relationship more complicated. Some ladies date more than five men before marriage and sleep with all of them because they see it as a norm or a way to prove their love against God’s standard. I personally believe that there is a lot to sex than the pleasure it gives. It makes you become one with the person. It ties you with the person, such that when you marry you compare your previous sexual life with your present and the memories of how you did it with the other person won’t leave you, expecting more from your husband or wife, forgetting that we are all not the same and our sexual lives can’t be the same as well.
That’s what leads to cheating in marriage. Some men or women can’t imagine been faithful to just one person because they’ve done it with several people in their past or before marriage so it’s difficult. Research has it and I learnt that if you had sex with a particular person if you meet the person years after and you’re alone or whatever, it is very possible that you will do it again.
Sex is good, don’t get me wrong, I mean God created it and everything He made is good and beautiful but sex before marriage is what makes it bad and wrong and sex with anyone else apart from your husband or wife in marriage is bad as well.”
