This misinformation about sex didn’t mute my interest in it, but it warped and twisted my understanding of a male/female relationship. I was finally entering the “kindergarten stage” of dating and learning about relationships, setting boundaries, and valuing myself as something more than just a twenty-eight year old orifice.
I am a single young spiritual and hard working brother, I am black.
I would think: Okay, those things are wrong, but I don’t even know what those wrong things are.
Wifely dues were something the husband wanted but the wife didn’t particularly like.
I also heard from the platform and from people at the Hall how it was not good for a man to be alone; that he needed a wife to satisfy his sexual needs.
Men who remained single too long may not function properly and women needed to be available for marriage to the single brothers; that it was “selfish for a woman to stay alone when there were brothers available.” The only exceptions were for women who “pioneered” full-time.
Dating no longer equaled sex the way it had before. I realized that being alone and being lonely weren’t the same thing.
