If you thought Indians were sexually deprived and lagged behind their counterparts in the West, think again. A new in-depth survey has shattered this myth proving that Indians were far more liberal in their sexual habits than what one thought of them.
The survey was conducted by website thatspersonal.com, a portal that sells sex toys and other sexual wellness products. Its survey, after analysing 80,000 orders over the period of one year, concluded that 62% of the buyers of sex toys were men with women customers being just 38%.
Women in Punjab, the report said, bought the most number of sex toys, while the highest number of customers for these products among men folk were in Telangana, where they largely bought men’s thongs. Gujarat was placed at number sixth, but it attained 3rd position during Navratri, when the sale of these sex toys experienced a sharp rise.
Among the Indian cities, Mumbai topped the list in terms of the sale of most sex toys. The Maxim city was closely followed by the national capital Delhi. Ahmedabad was placed at number 8, but its ranking significantly improved during Navratri. As for tier II cities, Noida in Uttar Pradesh was the biggest purchaser of sex products, followed by Lucknow, Jaipur, Gurgaon and Chandigarh.
The survey said that 100 million people had sex every day with India being the fifth most sexually active country in the world. Having sex with celebrities was the most common fantasy in the world and Indian bhabhi was the most searched porn movies in India.
The survey’s findings are in sharp contrast with the attitude shown the Indian censor board towards depiction of sex in Hindi movies. The censor board led by Pahlaj Nihalani has courted many controversies in recent months for its decision to not allow expletives, kissing or intimate scenes in Bollywood movies.
