Welcome to your talk show Impact Formula
Segment – Analysis of our Society’s Diaries (ASD)-(ANALYST’s OPINION)
Topic – Do you think the ‘acting profession’ makes people become promiscuous?
Key notes: Someone sent me a true story saying that her husband does not want her to become an actress; she says that is all the talent she has and she needs to express herself. Her husband is worried about the sexiness associated with acting. So do you think the ‘acting profession’ makes people become promiscuous?

I really don’t know if the acting profession makes people more promiscuous. I am neither a talented nor a trained actor. My comments are solely my opinion.
I think any and every profession has its own sexual pressure. People are critical of the movie industry because of its make believe nature.
I think the glam of the entertainment industry and the cutthroat competition pressurizes the professionals, and some crack under pressure and become promiscuous. Yet some still succeed in staying free of scandals.
“However, in this particular situation, i suggest they see a counselor. What i am sure of is the more insistent the woman is on acting, the more stubborn the man would be on preventing her from acting.”
There are other options she can use to convince her husband to give his support for her acting ambition.
The typical Mentality of the African Man…
So why is it cool for the guy to act? I’m not taking sides. But acting is a profession. And has nothing to do with ones character…”person wey wan spoil go spoil, no be another person go spoil am”
A promiscuous woman will be promiscuous acting or not. I don’t need to deliberate on this too long. I believe you don’t have accept all roles too… If you are married you don’t have to accept every script.
I asked myself while answering this, “can i watch another man kiss my wife in a movie?”
My answer is definitely NO..
That being said… I also said to myself “that’s not the only role she can play in a movie ?”
I believe Mama Gee is married… so is Mercy Johnson.. right, So i’m cool with such roles.
So any man who doesn’t want his wife to act can stick to his reasons.. I respect that (Every one is not going to be comfortable with everything we are comfortable with).
But for me it’s either his self-esteem is low, simply doesn’t want his wife to get attention from other men… or because his wife will meet top shots individuals.. it could be anything.
But don’t tell me acting will destroy a marriage man!
I studied Performing Arts in the ‘Better by far’ University and i know something about acting profession, its advantages and disadvantages.
Acting Profession doesn’t make people promiscuous except you are as a person. But because of the news we hear about the practitioners on daily basis especially their marriages, some people think they are all the same.
The issue is this. Some practitioners think they have to get whatever roles they want either by hook or by crook and so they go to any length to achieve their goals even if it warrant sleeping with producers,directors,marketers and even co-actors.
And some other practitioners will wait for their own time because it is not compulsory they take all roles.
This is why you see some of them appear in a lot of movies and some in selected movies.
My take is, you don’t have to act the nude roles to get to the top
I have a lot ot respect for people like CHIOMA CHUKWUKA, she doesn’t take just any role yet she is making it in the industry and her marriage.
JOKE SILVER is another actress i adore,just to mention a few.
Thank you Chams, J, Wells and Zee. I will always appreciate you guys…ALWAYS
Do you think the ‘acting profession’ makes people become promiscuous?
I will start with a quote made popular by Bob Marley:
“Every man has a right to decide his own destiny and in this judgement there is no partiality”
We are all responsible for our decisions. A decision made at point A could be perceived to be a good decision. It only takes getting to point Z to know if the decision was good or not.
Talking about decisions….Let me add this quote:
“You are a product of your environment”
Now: Arguably many “atrocious characters” are not inherent. “We pick them up from our environment as we grow” and i honestly really doubt if “female promiscuity” is inherent.
If my argument holds water…one can also say that “”female promiscuity is picked up from our environment as we grow”.
So, can we then argue that a girl who grows up among “prostitutes” is likely to pick up that “lifestyle” compared to a girl who does not grow up among “prostitutes”? A good argument….Maybe!!
I love acting and the fame and success that comes with it. Sadly the lifestyle of many in the acting industry is what has given the profession a ‘stain’.
Especially in this world of “nakedness”…..where it seems that it takes “nakedness” to market your products. Where even A-List companies have to use naked women on adverts just to get peoples attention…”It works” so “It trends”.
So a husband who denies his wife her right to delve into acting as a profession just might have good reasons.
I will sign out with a quote from Aristotle that i love so much:
“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it”.
In the same vein…One can find himself/herself in the ‘acting profession’ and not allow himself/herself to be corrupted by the “Corruptness”(perceived or not) that exists it the industry…there are many of such people in the ‘acting profession’.
