Chinedu Ani Emmanuel, also known as Nedu, a well-known media personality from Nigeria, has disclosed his reasons for not considering a virgin as a potential spouse.
In his view, many virgins lack the ability to make sound decisions, while non-virgins tend to be better at it.
Nedu made this assertion while co-hosting The Honest Bunch audiovisual podcast, where he shared his opinion that some virgins regard their virginity as their only asset.
“If I wan marry, I’ll not marry person wey be virgin. I will tell you why. I think girls that are not virgins make decisions better. Most girls that are virgins they believe ‘Oh this is my pride. My virginity is my pride. My virginity is my value. I’m a 30-year-old and I’m a virgin. I’ve kept myself.”
However, actress Juliana Olayode who was a guest on the show countered Nedu’s claims that virgins are bad at decision-making.
“There are a lot of women who are virgins and are very knowledgeable. They know that that is not all there is to them. You can bring one million, and they will increase it to fifty million. So, I don’t think it is an experience thing.
“Experience thing puts pressure on a lot of people. I’m speaking especially for people like Juliana [myself] that have a Juliana kind of mindset about this situation. I feel like that person who is a pro now did not start off as a pro. The person already has so many experiences with different men, maybe with the same man, and that is why the person is a pro.”
“So, I feel like we live in a culture where people don’t want to grow with you because there is so much hype about ‘I hit it, I got it right. Yes, I screamed. I shout.’ There is so much hype about that that a lot of people are not willing to just grow with you. And I feel like people who are willing to walk that journey with people, they share more bonds and connections, especially sexual journey, ” Olayode added.
