3. The Urge for Sex
The span of human life on earth is in the close proximity of 70 to 75 years on the average in the most developed nations of the world. Both men and women need replacements to continue the human existence on earth to fight for the cause of righteousness, justice and equality in a sustained process. The struggle for the elimination of evil forces and establishment of truth in its place is the assignment given to man by the Creator. Both men and women have to fulfill this sacred obligation without exception. This is the purpose behind the creation of man and it will continue to remain the same till doomsday. The urge for sex is the natural means to meet that end.
The urge for sex is equally strong in both man and woman. It starts with the onset of puberty and withers away at the far end of life. This is the vital force that sustains the machinery of procreation. Man not only has to look after his comfort and survival on this earth but also has also to continue his species onward to a period known only to the Creator. He has to leave behind his progeny to fulfill the mission for which he was raised on this earth. This is the responsibility of man on earth as ordained the Creator.
The childbearing and nursing stages are so painstaking that no woman would have cared for it had the sexual urge not been made so strong, pleasant and persuasive by the Creator. Among all the creatures on earth, perhaps the weakest is the human infant. He cannot survive on earth even for a few hours without love, protection and the affectionate care of the mother. The cause of the continuation of human species is the sexual urge of both man and woman and the cementing force between couple is the sweet baby. The culminating effect of these factors is the emergence of the family, comprising of father, mother children. The family, the stable home, is the nucleus of the society.
The growth of human society thus owes its origin first to the planning and creation of man in his perfect form, and then his continuation through the sexual urge of man and woman. It has brought the human civilization to the stage where it has now taken a complex shape. Due to intermixing of people, race colors and languages in the course of a millennium, human society has become deeply complicated and explosive. It has given birth to multiracial nations and ethnic minorities.
In its wake the human society today is facing urgent problems like accommodation, urban planning, environmental ruination, water pollution and shortage and hoards of other issues pertaining to man's habitation on earth. These problems are the direct outcome of human growth on earth through the sexual urge of man and woman.
A. Sex and Its Objectivity
Let us examine the way in which the urge for sex can be properly fulfilled. How it can be legitimately satisfied and meet its objective. Right from the dawn of human civilization till the modern 'enlightened' time, there always have been certain established norms and ethics in each society to guide the sexual relation of man and woman. Human society from the very beginning evolved the institution of marriage for the legitimate consummation of man's sexual urge. This is the recognized fashion through which both the sexes meet, build a family and bring up the children within the cordial environment of the home.
The other choice open to man is to satisfy the urge for sex like animals. He can have sex just for the sake of pleasure with no responsibility. This format is a negation of the objective for which the urge in humans was put. However, the choice is open before man and woman. Through marriage, they fulfill their obligation and are obedient to their Creator by their free will. Through adultery, promiscuity, homosexuality and other perverted methods, they select the unnatural path and negate the very object of this urge. The first choice is logical, most natural, healthy and in consonance with human nature. This process maintains the growth and flow of human civilization in its perfect and most harmonious form. It strengthens the family system and cements the bonds of love deeper and deeper. It helps in creating the stable home where there is love, care and the spirit of sacrifice for each and every member of the family. There, the child gets the natural environment that is perfect for the development of character, good behavior and moral standards. It makes the society free from social evils, psychological tensions and contaminated sex-related diseases that are spreading like a plague.
The potent instinct of sex has thus its clear objectivity. It cannot be adjudged by the animal instinct in spite of the fact that it is physical urge and common to both. In animals it is conditioned by time and season, where it meets its natural objective and no lust is wasted. There is no choice for animals, and hence no perversion takes place. It is directly meeting its goal towards the continuation of the respective species. Hence, those who compare the human sexual urge with that of an animal are not correct. They are misleading the society by their misconception. How can the animal world, which is growing under strict instinctive laws of nature with no choice, be compared to human beings who are quite distinctive in creation and bear moral obligations to self, family, society and the world at large. The human urge for sex is neither seasonal nor bound by time or place. Man has a free choice to fulfill it the way he or she likes. This is the bounty of the Creator and given especially to human beings. If by free choice, it becomes a free- for-all, having no moral obligation and no responsibility, men and women then descend to the level of animals. The urge for sex then loses its objective. What a great tragedy it is for mankind!
B. Alarming Consequences of Misuse of Sex
Today we see that most of the people (men and women) in free societies of the world have degraded themselves to a level even lower than the animals. The entire society, its press, radio, TV, Streets, parks, beaches, thoroughfares and clubs all are surcharged with the aura of sex. They are busy day in and out in exploiting and accelerating the instinct of sex, making boys and girls, men and women crazy to have it when and wherever possible. People in general and youth in particular have reached to a state where they are all sex oriented, as if they were born only for this purpose. This is the direct result of the misuse of the power of sex and free will. The natural choice through institution of marriage is gradually withering away. The choice of perverted sexual behavior is rampant and ever growing. This is a challenge against human nature and to the Creator. The horrible consequences of the misuse of the urge for sex are now fast becoming visible everywhere. The devastating spread AIDS, herpes and other venereal diseases, the disintegration of the family system, the sexual anarchy that we see around us and sex-oriented perverted crimes in great magnitude are some of the fruits that our 'civilized' societies are now harvesting. The future of humanity looks very gloomy and full of dangerous pitfalls.
From the above discussion, it is clear that man was endowed with urges for sleep, food and sex for maintenance, survival and continuation of his species on earth. These are strong physical urges and man fulfills their demand as a call from nature. But in fulfilling these urges wantonly, man becomes unbalanced and as such becomes their slave. In consequence, it has burdened human life with miseries, extravagances, oppressions, selfishness, exploitation and horrible diseases. The way these urges are satisfied by humans, the very objective for which they were put in men or women is lost in oblivion. These natural urges are fulfilled in unnatural ways to the utter destruction of man and his civilization. This is a sheer misuse of free will by his own choice and, therefore, man has to bear the brunt of it in the form of the horrible consequences.
