Are Sexual Wellness Products still a Taboo in India or People are getting Adventurous in their Bedrooms? Let’s Find out!

Instead of promoting an open environment regarding sexuality, India has become reserved and conservative about it

November 12, 2016: Ancient India was a land of liberal thoughts and accepting attitude. The level of conservatism was low as compared to the present times. In fact, India is known as the land of Kamasutra. Our bodies were not something to be ashamed of. Openness regarding sexuality was encouraged. There was no discrimination against lesbians, gays, transgender and queers. That’s how India was—a country which accepted every individual as they were.

Our ancient stories are filled with numerous instances. Like, Vishnu turned into a woman named Mohini. Karna took birth before Kunti was married. And a demigod named Kamadeva is an integral part of ancient India myths. None of these instances were seen with a degrading perception, as they are seen now. The ancient statues and pictures are the proof that India wasn’t reserved about sexual topics.

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

But now, the situation has come to the point that people are shamed for their own bodies. Parents can’t discuss about sexuality to their kids openly. Sex education is non-existent in schools. By the time, kids hit puberty, they have to figure everything out on their own. This process can be isolating and guilt-inducing as well.

Instead of promoting an open environment regarding sexuality, India has become reserved and conservative about it. The biggest taboo that exists in our society is talking about sexual wellness products. These products and supplements are available at many stores in India, but they are not sold and purchased openly. Moreover, whosoever indulges in buying these products receive umpteen judgemental eyes.

People cannot explore their own sexuality. They cannot take significant steps to maintain their sexual wellness. They cannot discuss their sexual problems with windows wide open. Ultimately, it has led people to feel ashamed of their bodies and its functions. They do not know how to deal with its biological demands.

Ultimately, it’s really important to promote the use of these products. A few men and women indulge in physical activities, but due to lack of awareness regarding these products, the women end up getting pregnant. It’s not only harmful to women but it also puts strain on the unborn child. Many families feel stressed out due to sexual problems. But again, due to the taboo nature of this topic, many males and females are ashamed of going to doctors and taking help.

Look for latest news from India in NewsGram.

As per a report published by healthsite, impotency is leading sexual problem that Indian men face. Sexologist Dr Mahinder Watsa reveals that due to smoking, drinking, and work-related stress, many young men are facing erectile dysfunction.  In fact, myths like ‘masturbation is sinful’ plagues Indians. Dr. Watsa stated that it is important for men to masturbate in order to get rid of unwanted sperms. Women can masturbate to explore their bodies more. There is nothing sinful about this act.

Such issues often go unnoticed and young people are ashamed of talking about these issues. It’s high time that we remove the taboo label we have stamped over sexual topics and help people to pay more focus on their sex-related health.
