Sex. Ah, look at the face you made. I can see that ‘OMG-what’s-this-guy-talking-about’ expression. Yeah I can completely understand what’s going on in your mind. So why is that I’m so publicly talking about the subject we Indians are least comfortable to talk about in public and yet love the most? Let’s have a word.
The very first thing we all are scared about is uttering the word. Sex, a three lettered simple word with no silent letters. Go out and ask ten people to read it out loud. Seven of them would very awkwardly say ‘saxe’, two would just smile at you with a stupid look and one would ask you to leave all these ‘dirty’ things and read Hanuman Chalisa instead. Why? Why do we Indians scare this word so much? A nation where the rate of rapes is on a speedy rise, a nation where Sunny Leone is almost a household name, why is one small word feared so much here?
Some would speak of our values or the olden-golden traditions. But I’d say all those things are a bullshit for this nation of perverts. We all love sex. We make jokes about it, we tell our best friends how much we like it, and we also watch a lot of porn, but we get uneasy while watching a condom ad on the TV or reading about it. So what’s this thing that keeps us away from creating an open-minded perspective about sex? If we try finding the roots of this whole thing, we’d see a horrifying truth. It’s our so called traditions that makes us conservative about it. OIn simple terms, you can call it an evil cycle. People don’t talk much about sex because it’s a taboo, and it’s a taboo because we never really talk about it. So far this looks just like any other unsolved social issue in this problematic nation. So far so good. But the real problem begins here.
People have an immense desire of getting laid. And that’s not just happening in India. It’s the same all over the world. But we choose not to talk about it. We keep our desires inside our mind. So what happens next? The very obvious, a journalist gets raped in Mumbai, a college girl in Delhi or any other woman in any other part of the nation. it’s like an outburst of the secret desires. That’s what I’m talking about. That’s the real problem. The whole nation choses to suppress everything about sex. That’s where we lag behind the world. And that’s where rapes come from.
I’m not saying that talking about sex we should tell each other about our sexual fantasies. What I mean is let’s just grow more liberal about all this. When you’re buying a condom, you don’t have to stammer or hide your face. You are in fact doing a good job. It shows that you have been properly educated. And when you see a lip-lock scene on the TV while watching it with your family, you don’t always have to change the channel. It’s okay. People do smooch. So what if it’s been shown on TV? And what if you watch it with your family? Chill. It’s not porn. You know, charity begins at home. So does everything.
Then we have a retard thing called the Indian censor board. They seem to have a problem with everything. Banning things won’t take us anywhere. If you are going to treat the nation like kids and deprive them from seeing even a little sex on the screen, they are going to go and look for it off screen. I mean how on the earth can you blur the cleavage of an actress in a song? Why can’t you give it an A certificate and show it as it is? When would we grow up? Nothing and no one would be offended by such things. If we grow liberal about talking sex and discuss it like we discuss the prices of onions, we won’t feel shy anymore and we won’t even look at like a taboo. I mean look if you go to a nude beach and see a hundred nude women, you’d get excited about all that in the beginning. But after watching 20 pairs of boobs or so, you’d not feel anything very exciting about it. It would seem very normal and comfy. The time when we begin talking about sex normally is the time we would be an adult nation in true sense.
But the problem with us is that we refuse to talk about it. We who told the world about sex positions through kamasutra. Come on, grow up people! It’s really not a taboo if we don’t make it one. India, at this moment is like a man who has gulped a whole bottle of viagra and who refuses to masturbate because it’s ‘dirty’. That won’t be helping us. is not always bad. Know, ‘daag achche hote hain’. Let’s all begin being a little free and casual about it. I can tell you how to start.
Read this out loud and pronounce it right! 😉
