Let’s talk about sex

Tomorrow, i.e. on 12th Feb is the Sexual Reproductive Health Awareness Day. This brings a serious question: In a country that reports high rates of teenage pregnancies and sexual abuse, one would think that the need for a curriculum focusing on gender equality, importance of consent, and boundaries, would not be a matter of debate. However, the irony is sex education is still a taboo in many parts of the country.

Sex education in India is a highly controversial topic. It is also considered as an offense to Indian ethics and values and the belief that it might lead to risky sexual behaviour and vulgarity. A common matter of worry is ‘everybody will talk about sex then’.
