Selfie Sex

For many Indians, Sex is straightforward. When the word is uttered, it conjures images of the penis, vagina, masturbation, and procreation. The sociology of sex is confined only to limited things within these imagined ideas. But the sex lives of a growing number of Indians include pluralities; this multiplicity of activities is determined by the Internet. Is it pertinent to investigate the connection between pornographic sex on the Internet and Indian sexuality? This book, Selfie Sex, primarily addresses this question. This personal journey into India’s ‘sexscape’ on Internet explores, but is not necessarily confined only to two key aspects: ‘Pornification’ and ‘Internetisation’, both neologisms used in the treatise. The Internet acts as a primary channel of porn consumption, and coincidentally, has become the most important platform for sex education. Unfortunately, the kind of information unfurled is distorted, as Internet has become the headquarters for a tidal flood of pornographic materials. Hence, porn sex ‘pornifies’ and ‘Internet-ises’ the sex lives of India’s social media generation. The core argument is that Internet porn has created social porn in India, which unlike porn viewing in the past decades, is more an activity like social drinking and social smoking. With more acceptability, visibility and popularity among teenagers of social media India, social porn is set to have profound implications on marriage, conjugal bonding, relationship, parenting, education, peer relationship and so on. This book is to strengthen the core assumption that porn sex on internet has abutting correlation with sexuality of the people who love porn sex and those people who comes within their social circles. So, porn sex on Internet has far reaching impacts on India’s cultural landscape.
