It was the yr 2008, and I used to be having a splendid time in Federal Polytechnic Nekede, Owerri Imo State, Nigeria. I used to be top-of-the-line within the Division of Public Administration with a primary semester GPA of three.52 and second semester GPA of three.50 all in a scale of 4.00. The key was easy, attend lectures frequently, take good relaxation and skim each day. It was clear that with extra effort, I’ll graduate with distinction, which could result in computerized employment to be a lecturer within the Polytechnic.

In my first semester last yr, I met a pupil referred to as Jane. Earlier than then my relationship with feminine college students was platonic. My shut buddies have been my studying companions. I and Jane’s relationship steadily turned to a sexual kind. As an alternative of going residence to relaxation after the day’s lectures, I went straight to Jane’s hostel. I’ll return residence late, too weak to learn.

My night time studying additionally suffered, as a result of I used to be busy making midnight calls and sleeping away the remaining time. I spent most of my time discussing with and visiting Jane. It turned so dangerous that I could not focus at school. I saved recalling our total sexual escapade whereas lectures went on. As an alternative of studying for a proposed two hours, I’ll spend an hour thirty minutes remembering all we did and a mere thirty minutes for skeletal studying. Focus, studying, retention and recollection turned a giant downside.

I met my Waterloo when Jane advised she was pregnant. Instantly, my focus modified from my teachers to cope with the kid. We did all we might to eliminate the child, from consuming of scorching drinks to completely different concoctions, all to no avail. She saved crying round me, forcing me to get cash for an abortion.

I turned confused and misplaced whole management of my teachers. I could not sleep at night time as a result of completely different ideas enveloped my thoughts. Am I going to be a assassin? What if she died within the strategy of abortion? These and lots of extra questions occupied my head. At some extent, I began having nightmares. I saved seeing lifeless our bodies. Then, graduating with Distinction was the least in my scale of choice.

Nonetheless, we consulted an abortionist and used my college charges to pay for his service. Painfully, I had peace. Few weeks after, I wrote my first semester HND1 examinations. The end result was revealed a month later, and it turned clear that it was inconceivable to graduate with distinction. My GPA was 3.27. I wanted at the very least 3.71 to get to the highest degree. All people was upset together with my studying companions.

I got here again for my second semester decided to be the very best no matter my final semester’s end result. I forgot my previous and by no means recalled my sexual relationship with Jane. One night Jane invited me to return to her home for intercourse; I refused to go. She saved alluring me, however I stood my floor. I’ve determined by no means to have intercourse with anybody. She turned indignant and stopped speaking to me, but I targeted on my teachers. Jane begged and cried for my return, however I saved fleeing. She began making all kinds of unfavourable feedback about me, regardless of that I remained steadfast. I learn two instances every day, one, instantly after the day’s lectures and one other within the early hours of the morning.

After our second semester examination, I nervously went again to my residence in Port Harcourt. Few weeks later, my pal Chukwudike gave me a name. He stated, “George, our outcomes are out; you’re a report breaker. Your GPA is 3.75, The Head of Division and many of the lecturers need to know who Anyaehie George is.” I later graduated because the second-best within the division (distinction degree).

Lesson

In keeping with data drawn from a Canadian neighborhood well being survey 43% of teenagers aged 15 to 19 reported that they’d had intercourse at the very least as soon as. A survey performed by the College of New Hampshire indicated that 42% of web customers aged between 10 and 17 years stated they’d watched on-line pornography within the previous yr.

Pre-marital and pornography has turn out to be a significant issue immediately as a result of intercourse and porn supplies will be accessed simply. Intercourse hawkers are in every single place across the neighbourhood; we even have cellular or Web intercourse. Pornographic supplies are only a click on away. Actors in pornographic movies at the moment are recognised as celebrities, they’re referred to as “porn stars.”

Pre-marital intercourse and pornography are one of many cardinal causes of educational failures. How? An important neurotransmitter within the mind is dopamine. It has many necessary roles; it serves in capabilities similar to voluntary motion, pleasure expertise, motivation, reward, punishment, and studying. Intercourse and pornography goal the dopaminergic system to launch nice quantities of dopamine, which ends up in experiencing a “excessive,” usually resulting in dependancy. When launched, dopamine strengthens and reinforces the brand new connections which are being made within the mind whereas an exercise is undertaken. This in flip acts to encourage the person to repeat the exercise once more to allow them to really feel that pleasure as soon as extra. And when the individual refuses to repeat the exercise, it breeds melancholy, dissatisfaction and anger.

Because the sexual or nude photos are displayed bodily or on the display screen, an arousal takes place and the dopaminergic system is triggered identical to it could be by medicine similar to cocaine. The newly shaped connections within the mind from having intercourse or watching pornographic photos turn out to be tremendously bolstered by the huge quantities of dopamine being launched. Relatively than going into short-term reminiscence, the place these photos will be forgotten after the display screen is turned off, the dopamine reinforcement ensures they’re moved into the long-term reminiscence shops the place they are often caught in replay mode within the individual’s thoughts. The troublesome reality about that is that the extra one thing is recalled, the additional it solidifies it within the mind. That’s the reason you can’t simply overlook sexual escapades. You may narrate how the journey began, the way it progressed and the way it ended.

What’s alarming about this data is that the mind acts as a complete entity; its plasticity is world. Change in a single space impacts different areas. Intercourse and Pornography viewings can actually rewire the general neural connections. When the mind is rewired to deal with intercourse or pornography, studying, understanding and recalling turns into troublesome as a result of the long-time reminiscence has been occupied with sexual or pornographic photos or scenes.

There’s nothing as harmful as “let me strive it simply as soon as,” as a result of dopamine will make you an addict. Dependancy begins from one encounter or scene. It progresses from gentle pornography of studying textual content describing sexual emotions and delicate graphic photos to exhausting pornography of graphic photos of individuals partaking in intercourse and graduates to actual intercourse. With time, the pictures are printed on the thoughts of whoever is consuming them, resulting in dependancy to intercourse and pornography.

Analysis has proven that college students who’ve intercourse carry out decrease than people who do not. Concentrate on an space results in the lack of focus in one other space. You can not evaluate a married pupil with single one; the single one will likely be extra targeted. That’s the reason some faculties do not admit married college students. It is usually necessary to state that lots of the world’s best inventors refused to have intercourse or get married. Notable amongst them are the Wright Brothers, George Washington Carver, Nikola Tesla, Paul of Tarsus.
