Sex is not made up nor is it new; it has been in existence since the beginning of time. The subject of sex is that alot of people are talking about it, doing it, and everyone wanting it. Truth be told is that some people that are not married that’s doing it; but there are also are people that are doing it (with other people). Take this example, one is with their significant other and they’re thinking about taking their relationship to the next level. They’re thinking about having sex before marriage. They perform the act and have a good time with each other. What they don’t realize is that unexpected circumstances can occur. Such things like unexpected pregnancy, emotional baggage, diseases, and many other things. So with that said, having sex before marriage is detrimental because it creates negative consequences for both persons. Now, let’s go into the first reason why sex before marriage is detrimental. The first reason why sex before marriage is detrimental is because if you do not wait, you’ll miss out on that special woman on the way. You settle for less. And now to make it right, you decide to marry them. Someone that you should've probably never married. And then the one that you should've married comes walking in and you say to yourself, "I should've waited". Now that you're at home arguing with the one you should've never been with because the sex committed before marriage has caused you to settle for less. The wedding night has been designed for the conservation when two people who have held their belief to have sex after marriage. The bed symbolizes marriage and thus the act in the bed does not become tainted with lust. When you have sex before marriage, you take away from the honeymoon night.

Sex Ed

...Abstinence-Only vs. Comprehensive Sex Education Which is the Right Choice? Allysa Lekas English 401 Professor Kramer December 11, 2012 Abstinence-Only vs. Comprehensive Sex Education The appropriate type of sex education that should be taught in United States public schools continues to be a major topic of debate, which is motivated by high teen pregnancy and birth rates in the United States compared to other countries. This debate is centered on whether abstinence-only or comprehensive sex education should be taught in public schools. Some argue that sex education, that covers safe sexual practices, such as condom use, sends a mixed message to students, and actually promotes sexual activity. The United States government used to promote abstinence-only initiatives through the Adolescents Family Life Act. It cost 176 million dollars annually to fund abstinence-only programs. The central message of these programs was to delay sexual activity until marriage, and cannot include information about contraception and condoms (Stranger-Hall & Hall, 2011). It has been proven that abstinence-only education does not have an effect on the birth rates in the United States, but comprehensive sex education has. Teaching students to not only about abstinence, but about contraceptive use and information about sexually transmitted diseases, has decreased the birth rates in the United States as well as the contraction rate of sexually transmitted diseases. Comprehensive sex......

...6 8. Recommendations………………………………………………………...……………...7 9. References……………………………………………………………………………..…8 ABSTRACT ‘’Sun, Sea and…Sex ‘’ the definition of paradise on Earth in Mauritius for tourists, but Sex can also lead to Hell. This piece of work is not about taboo matter but most on life issue. One day I heard a story about a girl of 14 years old who got pregnant by another pre-teenager in Madagascar. For us, Malagasy people, it is a shame for the girl and his family. Then, I knew that it was the same case for many communities around the World, a little girl unmarried who got pregnant is a taboo. The question in my mind was how could she have sex at her age and in addition sexual intercourse without protection? Normally parents give always advices or cautions on sex or just have talked about it to their children. In fact the girl was not aware on sex issue. The majority of girls getting pregnant or boys having sex diseases do not know what happened to them because they did not have informations. So the main question was, why are they not aware about sex and its issues ? This is why I have chosen this topic. After many researches I have found that it was caused by a lack of informations from the parents and talking about sex to children for many communities is very taboo. In this essay it is said that pre-teenagers are also victims of Aids after sexual acts and the number of Aids sufferers is increasing in......

The Puritans and Sex

...The Puritans and Sex In The Puritans and Sex, Edmund S. Morgan states sex as desirable by all people (28). Puritans have long been perceived as radical, religious conservatives that condemned life’s pleasures; sex in particular. Adding to the stereotype, they have been labeled as humorless, devoted believers of God emphasizing theocratic government through strict laws based upon the Clergy and The Bible through severe punishment. Above all, the Puritans were often viewed as individuals who discouraged relationships between the opposite sexes and trained themselves to be sexually repressive through the lack of intercourse; however, the Puritans encouraged sex within the bounds of marriage and emphasized their government to be structured through their beliefs and views of intimacy. The narrative begins explaining the views of sexual intercourse in the Puritan colonies. They emphasized that sex was a pleasure that was to be enjoyed through the use of the Marriage Bed founded by the nature in man (18). It was completely forbidden outside of marriage, and was propagated to have a penalty of death if adultery was to be committed. In conjunction, within a marriage, sex was also treated in line with other pleasures of life. During fasting, sex was also abandoned with food and drink. It was stressed that sex was to be centered to glorify God. In addition, if sex was conducted in an excessive manner, it was frowned upon similar to other displeasures such as drunkenness and......

Same-Sex Relationship

...Business ethics on same-sex relationships has been established by diverse organizations, to ensure that the rights of employees in an organization have been protected. There are rules and guidelines, which, are also laid down to ensure that there is no discrimination of individuals in the organization who have been considered to have relationships of the same-sex in the company. The discriminations that have been analyzed to face individuals engaged in same-sex relationship, in the organizational environment include discrimination on insurance benefits, conditioning promotion and demotion among others. Business ethics are meant to ensure that there is no discrimination of individuals in the organization despite the difference in sex relationships, race, religion, color, age, national origin, and disability among others. In a case where individuals have a relationship in the organization, the company should ensure that they are all treated equally. This will help in ensuring that the individuals in the various departments work effectively and as expected from them, which will also help in the growth and development processes of the organization (Beauchamp and Childress, 25). Research indicates that some employees have been discriminated because of having same-sex relationships in an organization, which has led to the employees withdrawing from their work. This is based of the environmental conditions experienced by individuals, for instance demotion, and conditional......

Ethics

...Ethics a Fading Value Ethics the study of standards of right and wrong; that part of science and philosophy dealing with moral conduct to duty and judgment formal or professional rules of right and wrong; system of conduct or behavior. In today’s society, private, professional, religious and in general, the question to have or not to have a recognized and agreed upon set of ethics is in dispute. Every professional, private, religious, and government entity has in one way or another been called into question concerning ethical conduct or its lack thereof. Ethic has become extinct and therefore, a fading value in our culture. In the United States and the world abroad the moral value system have taken a sharp decline and it’s not that important to most people anymore becoming shaded and less defined by groups and more expressed by people doing their own thing and being encourage to do what they want. So sadly even by those whom we’ve placed in positions of authority by use of that vast conduit we’ve called the Media, from which stems such utterance as “Just do it”, and “I’m doing me”. Such examples are common as cell phones electronic devices have become calloused and numb; almost expecting our culture to operate from a lack of ethic as a first option. In Religion, the catholic churches has repeatedly been called on child sexual abuse, in the professional world from Enron, Mattel CEO’s still robbed the kitty and have inflated the value of the company, in an effort to......

The Ethics of Marketing -- the Use of Sex, Alcohol, and Children

...The Ethics of Marketing The Use of Alcohol, Sex, and Children Business Ethics 11/23/2013 Introduction The American Marketing Association defines marketing as, the activity, set of institutions, and processes for creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners, and society at large. (www.marketingpower.com) This practice dates back to the 1450’s when the Gutenberg invented the first movable type, which allowed mass printing to be possible for the first time. Marketing and advertising has since evolved from magazines, to billboards, radio, television, telemarketing, print ads, and now with the digital age booming, has become a hyper competitive industry where companies will do just about anything to attract a customer. Doing “just about anything” is where marketers and advertisers operate on a very thin line as to what is considered ethical. This strategy now includes tactics such as the use of alcohol, sex, and the targeting of children to attract consumers. Companies use the power of beer advertisements at college sporting events, sexually explicit advertisements in venues viewed by children and teenagers, and use the developing minds of small children as targets in the advertising of certain products. While these strategies may be legal, they are not always ethical. In this paper, I will challenge the use of content, tactics, perception, and target audience, while applying ethical tests and......

Sex Sells

...Sex Sells Sex work is a broad topic, which encompasses careers such as stripping, erotic massage therapy, pornography, and prostitution. Prostitution is the oldest known profession. In the modern world, it is a source of controversy regarding the debate about the ethics of prostitution. The controversy is revealed through different realms that exhibit different opinions on the ethics of prostitution. Is prostitution ethical from governmental or religious standpoints? How does each approach deal with prostitutes? How do these approaches affect one another? In this paper I will explain both the political approaches of three American states, and religious approaches of Christians and Buddhists on their ethical opinions regarding prostitution. I will argue in defence of the utilitarian approach. The idea of selling sexual favors for money is cause for much debate globally. Separations in ethical ideas of prostitution can partially be attributed to different religious ethics. Two religions that have contrasting beliefs in many cases are Buddhism and Christianity, and this differentiation is clear regarding the topic of prostitution. Buddhist ethics are driven by the avoidance of harm to oneself and to others: Essentially, according to Buddhist teachings, the ethical and moral principles are governed by examining whether a certain action, whether connected to body or speech is likely to be harmful to one's self or to others and thereby avoiding any actions which are...

Ethics

...Ethics: How to live a good life  what is my worldview?  My worldview has been shaped and expanded over the course of my lifetime by many different influences. My family, friends, co-workers, teachers, and even strangers have made impacts on my life that have in one way or another changed how I view society and the world around me. The three main components that help to form my worldview are Ethics, Human Nature, and God, because they moulded my thoughts, experiences, education and life decisions. I feel the strongest aspect of my worldview is my tremendous sense of ethics. They help to guide my actions and decisions every day. Ethics to me lay the foundations of a person’s character. I feel that a person with good character will by default have a strong set of moral values and their morals will help that person to make ethical choices in their lives. My moral values have been learned from many different influences throughout my lifetime. Numerous influences in my life have been strong Muslim examples that have given me a good foundation of Allah like values. These loving examples have inspired me to live a life of compassion, service, and teaching. I strive to live ethically because I want to please God and lead others by my example. In my experience the ethical choice may not always be the popular choice, but it is the one I can live with. Human Nature has always been interesting to me. It helps me to understand why I and others tend to do the things we do. My definition...

...Business Ethics Across Cultures Article Review | XMGT/ 216 | | | | RENEE | 9/4/2011 | | What business ethics are in today’s world? What ethical issues within today’s business environment affect our community and organizations? These topics will be addressed in the following paragraphs. Before one can begin to address ethical business issues that affect our community and organizations, one must first define what business ethics are. Business ethics is a form of applied ethics or professional ethics that examines ethical principles and moral or ethical problems that arise in a business environment. It applies to all aspects of business conduct and is relevant to the conduct of individuals and business organizations as a whole. Applied ethics is a field of ethics that deals with ethical questions in many fields such as medical, technical, legal and business ethics. Business ethics can be both a normative and a descriptive discipline. As a corporate practice and a career specialization, the field is primarily normative. In academia descriptive approaches are also taken. The range and quantity of business ethical issues reflects the degree to which business is perceived to be at odds with non-economic social values. Historically, interest in business ethics accelerated dramatically during the 1980s and 1990s, both within major corporations and within academia. For example, today most major corporate websites lay emphasis on commitment to promoting......

Ethics

...Remembering the importance of ethics in her orientation, she felt that she had to let proper authorities know about what she had seen. She used the open door policy that Wal-Mart has to report the wrongdoings. Ms. Lowry ended up filing a complaint against Williams with The Ethics Office. The office investigated the issue and concluded that it was all a misunderstanding. The Ethics Office concluded that the papers that Lowry copied had nothing to do with insider trading and it was no violation of the ethics policy. Even though no charges were brought up against Williams, the so called Open Door policy/ Anonymity was breached. Lowry was identified to Williams that she was the one that filed a complaint which led Lowry to looking for a new position within Wal-Mart. She felt uncomfortable working for Williams under the new circumstances and asked to be transferred The Code of Ethics is very important to an organization. It defines the whole ethical standpoint of the company. In this paper I will expand on the code of conduct of my former company Wal-Mart. I will research how to make a successful and honorable code of ethics. I believe in order for a company to be successful, it needs to start with a solid foundation.
