Sex in Indian Literature And Why it is 'The Need of the Hour'

Mumbai, Nov 20 (TIWN): Indian literature is a mirror to Indian culture. It weaves in elements of our country that make it feel like home. Whether it’s the noisy, crowded streets, gossiping over cutting chai or getting compared to Sharma Ji’s son, Indian literature has it all. However, what it doesn’t have is sex. Sex in Indian literature is hard to come across (surprise surprise). It is an element of our history that is casually left out as well. Did you learn about the Kama Sutra era in your history books? Didn’t think so. Sex doesn’t make books vulgar, but can add expression, freedom and even female empowerment! We got in touch with Trisha Das, the best-selling author of Ms Draupadi Kuru: After the Pandavas, The Mahabharata Re-imagined and Kama’s Last Sutra.

She also adds that when we weave sex into Indian literature, we can start a conversation about it and all the stuff that comes under it. Like orgasms and the fact that 80% of the women don’t have one during intercourse! It will take away the taboo associated with it and lessen the shame it brings. When we read about sex, we connect to our own sexuality and it even helps us explore it!
