How To Have "Safe Sex"?

Note: The following message is actually a general tract written for people of all backgrounds.


A lot more people are talking about it every day. There seems to be an increased attempt to spread awareness about “safe sex” these days. Rightly so, perhaps, with the rate of HIV/AIDS and other Sexually Transmitted Diseases’ (STDs) infections steadily increasing, especially among the youth.

We might not have to ponder long over the seemingly intensifying lust among men and women. Pornography and erotic scenes are aired right into our unsuspecting living room; the newspapers which form our opinion every morning and the huge billboards along the road are certainly no better. Agreed, sex is the most exhilarating physical pleasure. Yet if it is not enjoyed in the proper way there is untold pain lurking behind.

Are you aware of the fact: HIV/AIDS kills at least 8,000 people per day? Here is another astonishing fact: 59% percent of Indians believe a cure for HIV infection is available (from the recent survey by MAC AIDS Fund)! More than these diseases themselves, ignorance seems to be the killer. Mind you, there is no cure for AIDS — none at all (even in Ayurveda or Chinese medicine or anything else)!

Some believe oral sex is non risky, sadly. Of course AIDS is not contracted by normally touching an infected person, but scores of research studies have proven that oral sex can cause the transmission of HIV and STDs. A little stimulation can indeed lead to greater destruction.

Most people even believe that the only way to prevent sexually transmitted diseases is via condoms. But medical research has proven that condoms have a failure rate of 14-15%! By using condoms, there are only chances to prevent - but certainly no guarantee.

Listen to the fact: The AIDS virus is 500 times smaller than the smallest sperm, 150 times smaller than the size of the blood cell and 10 times smaller than the smallest hole in a condom. Buddy, I know pleasure blinds reason but please remember this before you take the risk.

Are you aware that every minute, even as you are reading this, 11 persons are infected with HIV globally? The person you want to sleep with, however “decent” he/she might be, may actually not be aware of his/her HIV status, and would be spreading the killer virus unknowingly. Because - Fact: 80% of the people, who have Sexually Transmitted Diseases, experience no noticeable symptoms. Fact: HIV symptoms may not occur for up to 10 years after infection. Just think about it.

Let the choices you make today be choices you can live with tomorrow. If you want to enjoy sex, make the right choice to relish its pleasure as long as you live. Don't jeopardize your precious life or your wonderful family for the sake of temporary sexual satisfaction.

Remember, unhealthy sex might give immediate and momentary pleasure but blinds us of the guaranteed future destruction. Most people who have contracted AIDS are those who had either premarital sex (before marriage) or extramarital sex (outside of marriage).

So, is there any way to have “safe sex”? The only predictable way, orthodox as it might sound, is to have sex with your uninfected spouse. If you are unmarried, preserve sex for your marriage - after all virginity is the greatest gift you can give to your spouse. Enjoy sexual pleasure at its fullest within the boundary of marriage.

There is no other way to practice safe and healthy sex than within mutually committed monogamous relationship. We can even eradicate HIV/AIDS by faithfully committing ourselves to have sex only with our marriage partner. Cheers!

Can Married Couples Watch Pornography Together? [Part 1]

1 of 3
One day my wife and I happened to visit a married couple. As I was discussing about marital issues with them, the woman candidly asked me a question—“Is it okay for my husband and me to watch pornography together? Someone known to me suggested it is sexually healthy for a couple to watch porn together.”

There are many misleading voices these days, saying—“Watching porn together is one of the best ways a couple can connect.” “Watching porn together strengthens your sexual relationship.” “Watching porn together adds fuel into your dry marriage.” I have even found an article entitled, “Couples who watch porn together stay together.”

According to a debate on Times of India.com on whether couples are okay with watching porn together, 53 pct felt that it was perfectly natural, while 43 pct held it to be morally degrading. If this is the perspective in a more conservative and traditional nation like India, which is now becoming more liberal in moral issues, I can imagine the vot…

Three Tragic Signs of Complacency

"Complacency is a deadly foe of all spiritual growth," said A.W. Tozer.
These days I have been meditating on the book of Amos. What wealth of insights the Lord has in store for His children to learn about His ways! When I came to chapter 6, I was moved in my heart to self-examination, for it reveals three tragic signs of complacency.
One of the terrible diseases of Christianity today is complacency [a feeling of self-satisfaction]. A.W. Tozer says, "Religious complacency is encountered almost everywhere among Christians these days." He also observed, "Among the many who profess the Christian faith, scarcely one in a thousand reveals any passionate thirst for God." I cannot resist agreeing with Tozer. If the world is shattered because of its callousness towards the truth, Christianity is miserable due to its complacency in the truth it has believed.
Let us reflect upon the following brief message with a prayerful heart and allow God to redeem us from this ev…

Unholy Matrimony - Dowry, An Evil Practice

Most of us pay lip service to condemn dowry as a contemporary social evil, however, this ancient Indian custom continues to destroy families in our present age as well. Before bringing up this issue to the whole world, I believe that this must first be addressed to the professed people of God who are called to be the light of the world (Matt. 5:14). It is for Christians to confront this issue and explore fully to know whether dowry is acceptable or despicable. Let us reason, examine and find out - Is demanding dowry a perverted practice? Do we have any biblical proofs in order to come to this conclusion? Is requiring dowry in marriage unbiblical, or to say further, an anti-biblical practice?

This message might be offensive and discomforting to many money-loving readers. However, the fact remains – truth is bitter but makes our lives better. Therefore, I encourage you to read this message with an open mind and a humble attitude.
