In fact, "Karana" was born to "Kunti" before she had wed "Pandu" and "Dropati" had five husbands. For a film "Amar Prem", lyricist, Anand Bakshi had written, "Hum ko jo tane dete hain, hum doobe hain in rangraliyon mein, humne unko bhi chchup chchup kar aate dekha inhi galiyon mein." (Those who taunt us that we are engrossed in this love making, we have seen them also coming to these streets of brothel clandestinely.)
Moreover, the importance of women in society was also recognized and they were called "Devis". To this day, small girls are worshipped as "Devis" at the time of "Ashtami" and "Navmi" during "Navratras".
However, after Muslims came to India, their influence made sex a taboo in the Indian society and women started hiding behind "Pardah". Now that even Muslim ladies are coming forward to play major roles in life, one should not look down upon either "sex" or "women". If men can make candid remarks about sex in everyday life and enjoy sexual jokes, women have every right to express their views about sex, especially as freedom of expression is guaranteed under the Constitution. If women who form half of our population do not enjoy this right then it would weaken our society.
