In India, it is legal to access pornographic material privately, but illegal to distribute or produce it. Because of this, the production of so-called “blue films”– generally softcore – is not openly discussed. That has not stopped the industry, traditionally based in southern states like Tamil Nadu and Kerala where censorship is more relaxed, from being worth an estimated one billion dollars. It is thought that the slang “blue film” originates from the use of blue sets and lighting to conceal the identities of the actors and ensure that they are safeguarded from social stigma. Indeed, public opinion about porn stars is very negative: they tend to be viewed as sex workers rather than actors, a serious slur in a culture which attaches such shame to sexuality.

Ironic they consider sexuality shameful -- considering there are over a billion of them. Do they not know from whence all those babies come?

A few years back I was invited to a pig roast. A real one, where they buried the smoldering animal in the dirt. I didnt eat any of it, but I found the whole experience interesting.
Have to admit, pork is a very tasty meat.

Way back when had a housemate who was an art student and vegetarian. He came downstairs one morning and said he had had a nightmare in which someone was force-feeding him bacon! The horrors!

I seem to recollect a phallic god or goddess or two as well.

The architecture of 10th century temples in Khajuraho and Puri openly depict in stone sex poses of naked couples as suggested by the Kamasutra.

Where semen donation is concerned, in some bizarre cases people in India are willing to pay the equivalent of thousands of dollars to acquire the semen of IIT grads who're seen as hyper intelligent.

In many cases, what passes off as porn in India are secret cam recordings of couples having sex in hotels.

I just brush these porn agents aside and have to be quite rude at times given their persistence and shamelessness.

Some of these porn film agents hang out in popular night clubs or hip places like the Hard Rock Cafe and pass their cards to you through a waiter or they accost you near the toilet and brazenly inquire if you're open to acting in a porn film.

Free sex is fast catching on in Indian metros and has always been an in thing in the posh localities of South Mumbai. Well, in elite schools like Cathedral, many junior/senior high schoolers are sexually active and there have been cases when I was schooling in Cathedral that news leaked out of a girl getting pregnant with the parents discreetly withdrawing the girl from school. The classy Woodstock School in Mussorie run by American missionaries is a place where teen sex is the done thing. Half of its students are international. IIT students too are quite promiscuous despite their nerdy image. But, there are very few girl students studying in the IITs.

I just can't imagine jerking off and collecting ejaculated semen in a glass vial or some other container to hand over to a doctor to use in impregnating a female. I don't entertain requests to donate semen.

or me with mushrooms!

Truth be told, I find the smell of bacon repulsive. Mainly out of traumatic experience. I had a housemate in grad school, ironically a cancer researcher in the med school, who sizzled the stuff up EVERY friggin morning for the year I lived with him. Every morning I would wake up to the sizzle and smell.

The other day I had a tamale at a holiday (Xmas) party and AFTER I ate it, I found out there were two types of tamales on the platter, chicken and pork. I asked no questions, and life moved on.

There's a lot of free sex going on in the international commune of Auroville in India that was founded by the Mother, the Jewish spiritual collaborator of Sri Aurobindo. Aurobindo and the Mother had repeatedly warned their disciples against indulgence in sex and the need to completely get over the sex urge via the yogic force as part of the integral yoga. The females in Auroville dress in such revealing outfits that it's amazing these people think they're following the teachings of Aurobindo and the Mother.

Coming into direct contact with the higher frequencies of vibration of the energy field is dangerous if one does not have a purified and a strong nervous system, otherwise the direct contact with the higher energy will breakdown the nervous system of the person leading to diseases, insanity, paralysis or death. Worse, if the higher energy descends into the nervous system, as it has done in my case, then the difficulties are manifold as the nerves are constantly being sensitized to the new input and besides the subconscious is stirred up and brought to the surface for weeding out the undesirable imprints of personality and other adverse impressions. It is a most exacting process. On the other hand, scripture reading, head bowing, following dietary rules, abstaining from work once a week, lighting candles, going on pilgrimage, wearing a certain religious garb or singing songs are child's play and have nothing whatsoever to do with the cosmic reality or yogic experience.
