It is a question that always raises controversy in Nigeria - can you have sex before marriage? BattaBox's very own Odunayo went onto the streets of Lagos to ask Nigerians if they think sex before marriage is necessary, or not... and most importantly - how are they behaving regardless of their beliefs..!
"It is necessary... body no be firewood!" says one girl.
"It is necessary - as a guy you need to test-run," says one man, who is unmarried.
The main arguments against sex before marriage are often religious - that both Christianity and Islam (Nigeria's two major religions) are against the act before marriage. But interestingly, most people we ask do not mention religion as their primary reason for or against.
It is often more practical and physical concerns that people say shape their opinions - including sexually-transmitted diseases, rejection or unwanted pregnancy.
"No, pre-marital sex is not necessary," says one woman standing next to her fiancee. They have been married for seven years and not yet had sex. "It's a personal decision," says the guy.
"No - I disagree that pre-marital sex is necessary - from a moral and religious point-of-view," says one man. But he laughs it "takes the grace of god" to abstain.
It is perhaps a sign of the changing times and opinions about marriage and sexual equality between the sexes - that many of the young people we asked said that sex before marriage is necessary.
So - gist us - what do you think... is it necessary to have sex before marriage?
