All the Flashers in My Life

Illustration: Akshita Monga


consider myself something of an expert on Indian penises. I have seen too many in my life, and not always of my own volition. I am talking about men who have taken the time and trouble to flash their penises at me.

I have asked around about this, discussed the subject with friends: While they’ve had their own weird experiences, they haven’t had quite as many dicks presented to them for inspection. I wonder if it takes a special kind of person to make it big among exhibitionists. I wonder if it came pre-ordained by the universe; maybe a line in my kundali said that I’d see too many dicks and I should wear pearl to avoid.
