Acts of depravity are becoming more and more common today in Benin’ s society. It is not uncommon to find on social networks young people displaying themselves naked in photos or videos. These common practices lead us to ask if there is still a place for modesty in our societies.
The depravation of morals is the whole of the denaturalizing behaviors. These are immoral ways of conduct, especially sexually. Indeed, cell phones have become a means that strongly promotes the depravity of morals. Parents work to instill in their offspring cultural values that are part of our substratum, but the latter sometimes choose the path of depravity.
Scandals and shocks on social networks
On February 18, a series of videos showing a girl and three men in the middle of a sex party, made the rounds on the web. Once upon a time, accessibility to television was still strictly regulated. Nowadays, cell phones, IPhone, Android and the access to the connection even to the youngest, accelerate the depravation of the morals observed among the youth in Benin. In addition, social networks such as Facebook, WhatsApp, twitter, Instagram and others give accessibility to everything.
Indeed, for a story of iPhone, this girl gave herself up to a session of “partouze” filmed. In the videos, the girl could be seen having intimate relations with a man while the other two are about to pass their turn. And as a trail of powder the videos were spread on social networks, which caused the indignation of many Internet users.
At the same time, we notice that the influence of the web is making the situation worse. Thus, many influencers give themselves the luxury of posting images of themselves half-naked or showing their curves in order to accumulate views or many subscribers. On the other hand, it is frequent to observe in the clips, young girls to be completely naked, in sex cover to sing or dance. Not to mention those colleges, high schools and universities in which the occasions of cultural events, excursions or educational outings are transformed into moments of debauchery and immorality.
Posters exciting to depravation
Penis development, premature ejaculation, soft erection; these are the notes posted at traffic lights, on signs and public places in our cities. These writings swarm the walls of the nooks and crannies of the city and nobody cares about them. The depravity of morals shows perfectly the disappearance of certain values and traditions that once guaranteed an educational foundation.
The first solution is awareness. Young people need to be reminded that it is important to preserve our moral values and that the value of a man is found in his dignity. Secondly, parents should make an effort to control access to social networks so that young people are not constantly in contact with this bad information. Similarly, adults will need to take responsibility with both hands to set a good example. Because by dint of seeing adults indecently dressed or in immoral practices, it is very likely that the message does not impact positively. The vice squad should multiply its actions by launching an assault on anyone who violates decency and good morals. On the one hand, a probable solution is to foresee a limitation in the accessibility to certain sites, especially pornographic sites. And on the other hand, supervise the production of music videos to discourage this practice.
