"People don't want to believe the idea of worshipping sexuality and dont want to talk about sex,"said the young Indian author Ira Trivedi while talking about the missing links in Indian sexual history.
She was in a conversation with Meena .T.Pillai on the topic, India's Sexual Revolution at the Spaces Fest. She also talked about the researches and ideas that helped to write her latest book, India In Love.
The mythical concept of sex in her book led to an insightful conversation. Kamakhya Devi Temple in Assam is where the reproductive organ of Devi is worshipped. "But people are ignorant about the idol concept. This is what happens in defining sexuality among people," she commented.
She observed a new formula of relationship among youth, sex, and marriage. "I love talking to people and understanding them. I want to document and capture the latest trends in love and had it reflected in my book," she said.
When asked about the Indian youth exploring pornography, she said "It is said that Tinder has become a great platform for prostitution and Indian rules are grey".
The need of embracing sexuality and open talk about the concept of sex is important in current scenario, they concluded.
