  • Tinder टिंडर वाले बाबू मेरा खाता चला दो!

I’ve never set store by it, but watching my young friends seek sex outside marriage, I wonder if there is something to the theory.

    My Aunt Astrid had an affair with a married man, who finally picked his wife over her. She showed me that carrying bitterness in your heart is counterproductive, especially when you know what you are in for once you agree to be the “other person” in a relationship.

  • porn Why I Choose Not to Get Off On Porn

    In a world where female sexuality isn’t supposed to exist, watching porn is still seen as sexual liberation.

  • carpenter My Night With a Carpenter: Does Homosexuality Break the Class Barrier?

    In Bombay, it’s a class issue to get this far with a carpenter, but some of my friends have kinks – secretly inviting daily wage labourers home for a sex fantasy to be fulfilled. Autorickshaw drivers get lucky all the time, and sometimes even manage to steal valuables and never get reported.
