Sanjay Srivastava in the Hindustan Times:
The Kama Sutra narrative of Indian sexuality is largely irrelevant to an understanding of its modern manifestations and is best confined to expensive coffee table books of our ‘glorious’ past that was supposedly destroyed by foreign invaders. The Government of India recently blocking the offshore internet porn site savitabhabhi.com should focus our attention to the extensive non-Kama Sutra history of Indian sexuality that illustrates that the state often has little idea about the culture it seeks to ‘protect’...
...Our minders of public morality might be shocked to read Dr Pillay’s advice in a 1948 publication that masturbation, either as ‘auto-eroticism’ or as heterosexual or homosexual practice, was a ‘harmless method of relief’. And this from someone who contributed to the founding of the Family Planning Association of India!
In North India, a variety of Hindi language publications furthered the dialogue initiated by Pillay. So, small-town magazines such as Nar-Naari and Hum Dono were part of a semi-illicit circuit of debate and discussion on sexuality, drawing participants from small towns and qasbas that were not part of official discourses on sexuality and ‘sex-education’. Magazines such as these created a forum for non-moralising discussions on desires, fantasies, anxieties and intimacies. Of course, they sought to escape the wrath of the state’s ‘obscenity’ laws by presenting their discussions through detached medicalised language.
Nowadays, the most explicit discussions of sexuality take place in a variety of Hindi-language ‘women’s’ magazines such as Grhasobha and Grhalakshmi....

No. It was the whole, you know, motion. And the amazing thing to me is that now you would think this woman would like have excellent oral hygiene. Sadly she -- this is what it said in the journal paper -- "She believed that she was possessed by demons and switched to mouthwash for her oral care." It's so sad.
Women's activist groups in Kenya have slapped their partners with a week-long sex ban in protest over the infighting plaguing the national unity government.
The Women's Development Organisation coalition said they would also pay prostitutes to join their strike.
Bergner first introduces us to Jacob, a shy salesman who is both tormented and mortified by his obsession with feet. Like a closeted gay husband trying to pass, Jacob hides his fetish from everyone, including his wife, whom he loves deeply.
It’s not merely that Jacob finds women’s feet attractive. It’s that, for him, “the feet were the breasts, the legs, the buttocks, the genitals.” Simply hearing the words “size 8” or “size 9” can get him excited. Like a man partial to a particular breast size, Jacob also has his ideal foot shape: a high arch, a wide instep and a staircaselike progression of toes. Once when he was stalled in traffic, the woman in the car next tohim had her feet up on the dash — his version of a naked swimsuit model — and he climaxed seconds later
...at what point does desire go from acceptable to perverse? Is the man who lusts after petite, vulnerable-looking women any different from the man who lusts after disabled, vulnerable-looking women? What’s O.K.: a different body part, a different age group, a different type of body, a different kind of touch?
