Sex and sexuality is a complex topic, especially when it is riddled with rulings, some of them outdated, some obscure, and some that seemingly offer protection to individuals, and some that do. How do these rulings affect the Indian people in the 21st century? A discussion based on Madhavi Menon’s book: The Law of Desire: Rulings of Sex and Sexuality in India.
