Premarital sex is a tricky topic- for some, it’s non-negotiable; for others, it’s forbidden! Over time, premarital sex went from being a touchy taboo topic to something people are slowly getting on board with- or is it? People around the globe have different viewpoints to premarital sex.
Here’s what a few Indians have to say about Premarital Sex!
Even though we spoke to a very small sample size of people from different ages, the consensus seems to be that most people are okay with the idea of premarital sex.
Here’s what a 23-year old had to say.
“Any kind of sex, if consensual is okay.”C, 23 years
Let’s speak to a few Millennials now.
A, 27 years
“If you are sexually active and are mentally ready for this transition, it can definitely provide an insight about a different dimension of your relationship. If not, it can be something you explore with your partner once ready.
The timing of your sexual activity should only be decided based on your comfort and well understood preferences and not by the societal pressures.“
“I think premarital sex is not a sin like society portrays. If it’s consensual and safe sex, I say go for it. It has its benefits of letting a woman take control of her emotions, her desires and the comfort zone she’s in. Also, some women may discover that they may need more time to safely engage in sex, some may have medical conditions like vaginismus, some maybe not be sure of what they actually want from sex, and the list could go on. There’s nothing dirty about ‘doing it’ before marrying a random person you barely know, and there’s no shame in admitting to having emotions for a person you’ve had sex with!“R, 28 years
Wondering what a Baby Boomer thinks?
“As long as both are in love and take precautions, I am all okay with it now.M, 51 years
Maybe not when I was younger as the societal norms those days were different and I was conditioned to believe that way.
After marriage and being a fiercely independent woman, today, I am okay with this.
As long as nobody is exploited, pre-marital sex is perfectly okay!
Sex is being had- whether people like to acknowledge it or not; in marriages and out of it! While a few are hit with overwhelming guilt after partaking in the activity, others feel empowered.
