i##I I feel my age and qualification entitles me to initiate a debate on this issue. In the land of Kamsutra and Khajuraho, Sex is a taboo topic, sin to talk openly and look down by all as if it is pornography.
Biologically speaking, sex has one most important fuction for which God willed and gave us. It is to reproduce and maintain the existence of Homo sapiens. Love,marriage, courtship, Khajuraho, sexual enjoyment as per Kamsutra are all human invention.
There is no sex education in our schools. Vast majority of our youths are totally ignorant of their own body.
Making love is just a tiny part of sex education. This education teach the anatomy and physiology of male and female organs, how and when hormonal changes takes place in the body and what effects it has, when is a male and female body mature enough to recreate another human being. What are sexually transmitted disease and how to avoid them.
Express your views and don't forget to mention your own knowledge and experience of the subject.
we all want sex. most men actually think of sex all the time. I dont. being indian we dont talk about it with parents or anyone.
--------------- Madam why feeling shame in writing. It's true that every adult loves sex, only hizras have no sexual urge as they don't have sex organs. Your comment " I dont." have confused a lot of you bihar readers. Please throw some light on your above comment.
That doctor who started this post was a pussy cat. he was afraid and left. I thought he had some spine but he was impotent all the way.
I think rohini ji is right. he was a napunsak. pagal doctar tha ek dum ghusat. hamare hindustan ke bare mei buk buk karte rahta tha. ek dum darpok ka. apne ko hero se hum nahi samjhta hai napunsak. waise bhi lala ji darpok hi hoye hai.
First of all let, me thank Doctor Ajay for touching a very important issue that concerns all. In my opinion, sex-education is something that must be taught and spread in a very systematic and organized way in India, without hurting the sentiments and feelings of the Indians--majority of who still may not be very advanced in their thoughts, and for whom the word 'sex' may still be somewhat a dirty word. As pointed here by one of the contributors, 'sex' and 'porn' for such people could be almost the same subjects. This is not to suggest that we are not evolving in our thoughts and approach to such issues. The mega success of a film like 'Vicky Donor' perhaps proves that we are rather aware, and ready to accept some of the truths of life which hitherto may have been kept behind closed doors for the imagined fears of a social backlash, and for being branded a 'dirty' person by the prudish Indian society.
I think he makes a lot of sense. but the trouble is that he ran away like a pussy.
Dear Dr. Ajay, when we talk about sex education it need not be only human sexuality. At school up to class ten the science book covers verious componants of human body as well. It covers plants reproduction as well as mamals. It also covers various ages and hormonal changes at various stages of growth of human body. All we know that family is the best school for a child. Many aspect of sexuality is taught indirectly in the family by parents through their guidence. When a child start moveing out of home and interects with external environment at that stage also he/she learns some aspects of sexuality as socialisation. Then comes the formal education at schools. I think the present text books adequately covers the education relating to sex for that age group. For an Adult's sexuality a person must read good books on sex such as Kamsootra and many books by modern authors of repute.
When I was studying for my MA degree at Brown Univesity, New York, USA, I was amazed to see young Americans so well versed in the matter of sex. Their knowledge included diseases passed on, reproduction, what is permissible and what is immoral and refrained from them. Sex related crime at my university campus was unknown and unheared of, unlike here in Bihar where girls suffer so much sexual harrasment. Family planning, was debated by both boys and girls in our social circle - a taboo in our campuses.
