History of Indian Sex: Presented by Sita Anand with Raja Sundaram is a refreshing take on Indian sex and sexual attitudes
Presented as a mythological concept, Sita’s quest for knowledge about sex leads her to be demonized by her brothers. But when she discovers her real identity as Sita, she is transformed into a powerful, respected heroine. The Demon has many variants, one of which is Sita as Porno Queen. As a fictional character, Sita is depicted as a powerful, sensuous woman with an insatiable appetite for young men. Reversing long-established views of how to write the female history of colonial India, Sita Anand presents porn culture as a key to understanding Indian women’s sexual history
Porn culture is one of the most powerful forms of female sexual expression in modern India. Although women are allowed the freedom to be sexually appealing and sexualized as in the western world, their place in society is still relegated to being a housewife or a sex slave. This is despite the fact that Indians have always been fond of sensuality and sexuality. In fact, it is one of the oldest aspects of Indian history, which stems from Vedic texts. Modern Indians has only recently embraced this sensual and sexual culture, which can be seen in the extensive number of adult movies.
Sita is one of the main characters in the Indiatoday news strip, which presents Sita’s quest for knowledge about sex and her lesbian adventures. The main article shown in the news strip deals with how Sita finally comes to her senses and realizes that she needs to live her sensuous life as a free woman. In order to do this, she marries Bhagirath, who happens to be her friend. As Sita lives with Bhagirath and her lover Ajit, she slowly begins to realize that there is more to her sexual identity than what she was accustomed to living with her parents and her friends. In the main article, we read about the sexual revolution in India in the past fifty years.
One of the primary reasons why the story of Sita and Bhagirath reached the colonial world was because they happened to live in a region that was rich in gold and other precious stones. Gold and silver were so much more valuable back then that Indians were willing to pay just about any amount of money just to find ways to extract these treasures. With this background, both Sita and Bhagirath had to find ways to become empowered women from their conservative Indian upbringing. By becoming powerful and independent, they not only achieved their goals, but also changed the way people looked at Indian women and Indian sexuality. By bringing into light the roles and responsibilities that Indian women played in the lives of men and society, they created space for women in Indian society.
The colonial India was known for its strict social structure and arranged marriages. This was all part of the “Indian porn” and was a major reason why deviant female sexuality was never discussed or even accepted. On the contrary, when the British brought in foreign elements to change the culture of their new colonies, they had to bring in their own ways of thinking and dealing with deviant sexualities. Thus, we can see that Indian women’s liberation did not only give them the right to engage in premarital sex but also gave them the freedom to explore their own sexuality.
But what kinds of sexual ideas and discussions were introduced in the Indian society during the colonial period? Many say that this was the age of arranged marriage and domestic violence. Others say that this was the era of ignorance and superstition. And yet, others say that this was the era when people were beginning to understand the nature of their relationship to their spouses and partners. Whatever the case may be, we can see that the role of sexuality in the Indian psyche changed drastically after the British colonized India.
How was this changing sexual attitude towards marriage and love portrayed in the Hindu religion? According to some of the more famous works on the history of religion and spirituality, the shift in attitudes towards sexuality in the Hindu religion can be attributed to two different things. One factor can be said to be the rise of the seduction literature – the Vagrissi and the Kama Sutra. These texts presented the idea of love and desire in a much more favorable light than the conventional texts that emphasized on the role of sexual contact and procreation in the lives of married couples. The second factor can be attributed to the ever increasing popularity of the Brahminical castes that portrayed a very sexually repressed position in the society.
So, if you are looking for a powerful template message to use when teaching sex to your students, I highly recommend that you include the teachings of the Kama Sutra. Not only does it present a powerful message for those who are interested in learning about the mechanics of lovemaking and its various aspects, but it also showcases the more shameful aspects of the cast that the Brahminical classes were once associated with. Although it may be difficult to teach sex to students from a very conservative background, it is certainly possible. Just remember – sex sells!
