A CRITICAL EVALUATION OF RAPE: LEGAL PROSTITUTION AS THE RESCUE- by Living Legend

Sex is as old as the creation of man and can be regarded as one of the greatest or the highest level of pleasure that men derive. Both male and female enjoy the very pleasure of sex even amidst the price of it being painful. It is in the mist of that pain that the pleasure lies. The theory of hedonism by Epicurus positions man to be a pleasure seeking being, hence, man is ready to undergo any form of pain just to get pleasure. Since sex happen to be the highest level of pleasure contextually, the crave of sex by man is as constant as change.

The persistent nature of man to attain this great pleasure of sex has resulted into man going to any extent to achieve this, up to the extent of forcefully having their way on opposite partners.

Rape has been in existence as a very grievous crime towards fellow human beings for ages. The act of forcefully having sex with opposite partner at the detriment of their own personal “free and conscious will” is rape. It must be noted that the practice of rape is in multi-dimensional phases. Husband can forcefully rape their wife; wife can rape their husband, male and female of different family background can rape themselves respectively, rape between family members, females raping male among others. All of this cases are bad and destroying the prestige and dignity of man.

However, we have cases of raping that are done via free will but yet unconscious and due to ignorance of the victim. this cannot be overlooked, for instance, a grown up man deceiving a young child with a sum of 500 naira just to have sex with her, in that case that child can be regarded as been ignorant of what the man is about doing, or a man sleeping with a 4year old girl after giving her #10, all this are absurd and barbaric but still part of rape. This implies that not all cases of rapes are carried out in a forceful manner.

Causes of Rape

We have both physical and metaphysical explanation for an act of rape, never the less we will be picking some empirical and scientifical reasons why man perpetrate this act.

When the sexual hormones in the body over secretes, the desire for sex will be raised and hence, if not properly managed by the individual, it could lead to desperation and forceful diverting of the inborn hug to the opposite sex.

It is a laudable fact that poverty and ignorance has constituted more to the cause of rape in recent time, when people are in quest to search for how they can survive, they come across people with low self instinct who are ready to meet their demands, but because of their refusal to dance to this people’s music, yet want to have their cake, they arose the inner anger of such people who in turn forcefully rape them, perhaps some deceive them and out of their own ignorance they fall.

Men they say are move by what they see, hence immoral and indecent dressing by young teenagers and youth of now a day’s calls for alarm, scientifically, when a man sees a sensitive part of a woman, it registers in men’s memory for a long period of time than you can imagine. The mind with its innate ability to imagine is capable of creating some psychological image which arose the sexual hormones of men. The result is evident.

Watching of phonographs, sexually induces videos, pictures and lack of proper sexual education has also contributed to a reasonable extent to the high record of rape cases that we have witnessed in the past.

Effect of Rape

Wanting to measure all the effect of rape will be like wanting to count the number of sands in the sea, suffices to say, the effect of rape ranges from psychological breakdown, hatred, murder, suicide, lost of dignity and value among other. At this junction, it is important to ask some critical questions.

  1. Can the immoral practice of rape be totally stopped?
  2. Can man stop craving for pleasure?

On the basis of these two fundamental questions, which serve as my anti-thesis, I proffer my thesis. If indeed Epicurus is right, then Aristotle must be right. If man is a pleasure seeking being, then man has a great link with the animal kingdom, and we are only a bit rational than them. It then implies that, man is a rational animal. If man is a rational animal, then Sigmund fraud must be right about his theory of ID, EGO and SUPER EGO.

On this note, one can say that it will get to a point in time, when the desire for pleasure is at his peak, and the super ego can no longer control the innate desire from within, man will have no option than to bring out the animalistic nature in him just to satisfy its sexual desire at that time, hence, the history of mankind and the emergence of rape can never be separated.

Since man is a pleasure seeking being> man can never stop craving for pleasure

If in having sex man gets great pleasure> man can never stop having sex

If willing woman cannot always be there for man to have sex with>rape is inevitable.

On the basis of this short argument, it means for us to cob the rate of rape in the society their must always be women who will be willingly available for man to satisfy their pleasure always. And since this women cannot just give that without taking something in repay, it then lead to a form of business which is PROSTITUTION.

Going by historical basis, it is right to say that prostitution is an ancient business and one of the oldest businesses so to say, aside farming and hunting. Even in religious books, this business of prostitution still find itself there to show how old it is. Since after the desire to eat and have good shelter, the next desire for an average man is to crave for pleasure, hence we cannot sideline and kill this business of prostitution in our society just as we cannot stop planting and hunting.

It is evident that a lot of people will subscribe to religion as a rescue for rape, but even if the whole world turn into religious house, the whole world cannot still be free from crime and sexual immoralities because, man was created with that desire and when it goes out of hand, no measure can be used to restrict that animal nature in man until it satisfies its desire. So the best rescue is to find how to cob rape.

Of a truth, we cannot say prostitution is not totally good, yes, there are evil in it, and it pose great threat to human existence most especially through the spread of deadly diseases, but we must understand the very fact that even if prostitution is abolished totally, we will still have prostitute and sexual immoralities will not stop which is a more greater danger than prostitution being allowed itself, hence, why not create a suitable environment for prostitution which will pose lesser threat to the existence of man and reduce the spread of diseases. This suitable environment for prostitution will lead to my synthesis.

Since, the thesis argues for prostitution, then, there is a need for the government to come out with well organized policy to make sure that prostitution is a real business duly registered under the law, any one involve in prostitution or want to be a prostitute should be registered with the government and must be health-wisely fit.

For those who have communicable and deadly disease already among the prostitute, government should make sure they go for medical service always and restrict all prostitute from having unprotected sex, if anyone is discovered to have an unprotected sex, such person should be sentenced to jail term, both the prostitute and the person who patronizes her.

Prostitute should be moved away from staying on the street and be confined in some area as directed by the government for proper monitoring and regular healthy checking of the prostitutes.

Any prostitute who is going for home service must get the approval from the appropriate authority and must be tested before been admitted back  into the mist, hence people in charge of prostitution issue must be experienced counselors who are both rigid and flexible and must be essay to access at any point in time by the prostitutes.

There should be a law to melt out capital punishment for anybody involve in rape, so anybody who cannot control his sexual pressure should find a prostitute lodge around or call for home service and pay.

On a final note a well organized and package prostitution which is being anchored by the government is what I call LEGAL PROSTITUTION, this I prescribe to be the logical rescue to high rate of rape in the society.

On this note I submit by saying every synthesis can still become an anti-thesis, hence, the only rescue that will have no further anti-thesis is Jesus Christ. Its pays to give your life to him. I remain the VOICE OF THE VOICELESS
