THE PARCHMENT

Opening note from D.E’s

  • Sex. A topic which is constantly embroiled in controversies. India, the land of Kama sutra, has had a love- hate relationship with Sex. While views regarding sex are constantly changing, especially in terms of casual and pre-marital sex, on the other hand we still are stuck to myths regarding alternative sexuality, sexual minorities and same-sex marriage. Glorification of sex in literature, movies and the Internet is just growing – while the world has accepted it, we still shy away from accepting reality. The age old Sanskar V/S Sex Debate. When I was asked to head this edition, I was more than delighted as sexual health is a topic which is highly neglected and very close to me. This edition, we’ve tried to go as bold as possible while also trying to maintain novelty in the topics. From Donald Trump’s Grab your pussy, KJO’S twins, sex for dummies – we’ve got it all!
  • Few of the highlights of this edition are – Manabi Bandyopadhyay , Suzette Jordan Rape Case , Punjab Drug Addiction – an issue of national importance and lastly – sexual and reproductive health rights in Afghanistan and Pakistan. I would like to thank all the authors for their contribution to the topics , especially since many were out of the box. I would also like to thank my co-D.E – Hansel , Saniya and Megha for their contribution and being a great team.
  • Here’s to a great edition! SEX, SEX and SEX!

Cheers,
