From our Obsession

Sex education remains a taboo subject in Indian schools. As a result, several misconceptions about sex abound in the country that once gave Kama Sutra to the world. Most of them receive forthright, and hilarious, responses. What first aid will we require after having sex for the first time? How safe is that?
Indians have sex quite frequently, but not as often as the rest of the world.
Last year, I had the opportunity to work closely with a team of young journalists and interns. They all had another thing in common: Dating lives most older Indian millennials could only have dreamt of in their 20s. And, this seems to be a pattern across industries. This feeling of disappointment over not having met enough people is common among urban men and women in their 30s. Most millennials born before liberalisation in India grew up with an awkward attitude to dating and sex—westernised enough to pursue pre-marital romances but not bold enough to do so openly and nonchalantly. The rise of dating apps and social media changed that. The entry of post-millennials into the workforce, wherein the two generations began interacting regularly for the first time, has shown us just how massive that change has been. Before dating apps became ubiquitous, our hunting grounds for potential partners were restricted to where we studied, lived or worked.
