What’s the State of Sex Education In India?

Sex Education for either youth or adult is a taboo in a country such as India with its rich cultural traditions and ethos.

“A study on child abuse in India, conducted by the Ministry of Women and Child Development, stated that 53% of boys and 47% of girls surveyed faced some form of sexual abuse. Therefore, FLE might help the vulnerable young generation to be aware of their sexual rights and empower them to protect themselves from any, sexual abuse, the undesired act of violence, and molestation.”

The sex education for youth and adult programs in India popularly known as “family life education” (FLE), will help the men and women of urban and rural areas to understand the role of each other towards each other and will cultivate sexual awareness to maintain healthy sexual life. While the program is hard to roll in complex cultural belief systems and stigma about sexual topics in Indian society.
India is a country that holds the largest adolescent population ( which is 50% of the 243 million population living in urban areas). These figures and numbers can easily elaborate on the need to address the importance of sex education for youth with this considerable amount of figures in a country.

Sexual health is considered to be the most sensitive issue and there are still some states and cities where people feel awkward if asked to share sexual health in public. There are people who still feel that talking about personal things is taboo. And because of these issues, it becomes hard for youngsters who suffer from major hormonal changes and experience developmental changes in their body and mind at the start of their adulthood to share their issues.

These unresolved issues in the future give rise to various negative sexual health outcomes in males and females and give rise to various sexually transmitted infections, unsafe abortions, and pregnancy as well which adults are not capable of handling.

Some Popular Sex Education Questions

Some Popular Sex Education Questions
  • How do I have sex?

If you are talking about intercourse, then it is done by inserting the male reproductive part into the female ones. But for doing that you need a partner who wants to do the same activity without any hesitation with you.

If you are having sex for the first time with your partner, then they’re the best thing is to talk to your partner about their expectations and thoughts and positions. You do not have to imagine anything; you can ask them what they want and how. After that, both the partners must get sexually aroused both mentally and physically as it is vital for making the love bond. Physical arousal is necessary for sex as it makes the penis hard and the vagina to get wet, it creates sensations in all the body parts that excites both the partners.

Physical arousal can be done through various actions like kissing, touching, cuddling, and embracing each other before having sex.

  • What do you mean by sex?

Every single person defines sex in different definitions and experiences, but the experts define it as an intercourse between two people who happened to like each other.

But if we do for a detail definition, then it can be said that –
Sex is any action that two people perform to get physically aroused or evoked to satisfy their sensual feelings, the feelings that make you get erotically charged for any particular person. And according to this definition, it can be said that any acts like masturbation, chats that involve sharing of erotic experiences, including oral and manual (by hands), including intercourse, can be referred to as sex.

  • How does it feel to have sex?

Sex is a thing that makes every person feels different that actually depends on what kind of intercourse they had and the extent of arousal they get from sex with their partners. Sex makes people feel physically aroused and gives them extreme pleasure and sensations flood in their bodies.

But on the other hand, for some couples, sex can be frightening and painful with a bad experience. Sometimes sex can be painful, especially when the partners are not physically aroused. Many couples have sex even before they are not ready and without any excitement, which leads to unsatisfied sex. Because of that, it is necessary to have basic information on how to have sex and compatibility for getting a pleasurable time.

  • Why does sex hurt?

The answer to this question varies and depends on who asks the question – the male partner ( the one whose anus is inserted into) or the female partner (whose vagina is inserting).

When it comes to the male partner, the main reason it hurts to have sex is insufficient lubrication. It is advised to use lubrication before having anal sex. If you do not have enough lubrication, then it might result in friction and pain.

But for the female partner is the insufficient arousal that causes pain. The female body reacts to the arousal as the blood flows to the genitals. This arousal brings the changes of the genital touch to make the insertion pleasurable and satisfying.
