Off late one question was itching through my brain. As Indians we have been liberal with sex in the past. In a land where Sex was scientifically documented in the form of masterpeices like "KamaSutra" its really a surprize to see the change in attitudes towards it in the recent era.
So as usual i went on a hunt on the internet to find an answer to the question.
At what point did india became sexually tabooed as against previous states when it was culturally open sexually?
I found a detailed write up about indian sex history on wikipedia.
It is quite shocking to know that the colonization of india was one of the major influencers of making sex a taboo in indian culture...here is wat wiki pedia says
...the main moral influence that led to stigmatisation of Indian sexual liberalism by Indians within India itself was the effect of the ideas of the Victorian era, in which other cultures, from European view, were seen as primitive if they did not conform to the ideas of European culture. The pluralism of Hinduism, and its liberal attitudes were condemned as 'barbaric' by a colonial Europe and proof of inferiority of the East. The effects of British education, administration, scholarship of Indian history and biased literature all led to the effective 'colonization' of the Indian mind with European values. This led some Indians wanting to conform their religious practices and moral values to Victorian ideas of "high" civilization.
Although still not completely convinced i shall keep the post updated if i find more proofs regarding this topic.
