According to the Telegraph, when Smriti Irani had headed the HRD Ministry, the original draft which was given out in May used the word ‘sex’ twice.

Later it was reported that the expert panel has been asked to reduce the recommendations on adolescent education and asked not to use phrases like “sexual health needs,” as the word ‘sex’ is a taboo in India and instead of taking a step ahead and working forward to eradicate this, to the surprise, the government says, the mention of this word in the document might not be liked by people and offend them.

On the other side, experts have requested and urged upon a more explicit form of education where sex is talked about freely which will help solve the existing issues in this part of our lives.

According to the reports, the half a page in the draft earlier mainly advocated more thorough and explained lessons against unprotected sex but the Ministry raised objections on this as well during the last round of discussions.

Men initiate sex more than three times as often as women do in a long-term, heterosexual relationship, says a study.

The researchers investigated what are the other factors which play a role for the frequency of intercourse in couples in long-term relationships.

The study, published in the journal Evolutionary Behavioral Sciences, suggests that two factors are decisive in how often women take the initiative at all — their attitude towards casual sex and passion.

The researchers considered several factors in their study such as how happy people are in their relationship, how committed they feel to their partner, how intimate they are, how much they trust each other and the love between them.

“Passion in the relationship is of great importance for intercourse frequency,” said the study’s first author Trond Viggo Grontvedt from Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).

“Passion is actually the only one of these factors that matter. We didn’t find any association between any of the other aspects and how often people have sex in couple relationships,” he added.

The study included 92 couples aged between 19 and 30. Relationships varied in length from one month to nine years, with an average of just under two years. The couples had sex two to three times a week on an average.

The longer the relationship had lasted, the less often the couples had sex.

The study also revealed that desire for others reduces passion. “Strong sexual fantasies about others than the partner don’t mix well with passion in a relationship,” said Mons Bendixen, Associate Professor at NTNU. (IANS)
