Here's Why 85% People Say Sex Education Should be Compulsory


The very word is enough to induce curiosity among people. Now, the funny thing is that however curious we may be, we can't really talk about it in the open, especially in India. Believe it or not, there's a social stigma around it. Even today, in the twenty-first century, it is very hard to have a discussion about it. And if the society is embarrassed to talk about sex, how will we educate someone about sex?

In a country like India, with a population of over a billion people, honestly, we could use some. The population of many Indian STATES is actually MORE than the population of COUNTRIES! For example, Uttar Pradesh's population exceeds that of United Kingdom by a huge margin, despite being similar in geographical area. In fact, even the combined population of UK, France and Germany is less than Uttar Pradesh. 

The population crisis in India needs to be addressed and it should be done now. We can either have a strict one-child policy like China or we could pay more attention to sex education. Should sex education be made compulsory in India?

It is the same question to which around 85% of the people agree. Want to know more?

Scroll on.



Out of over 40,000 respondents on Instagram and Facebook, 85% said it should be made compulsory and only 9% disagreed. Around 5% replied with a 'maybe'.

Which brings us to the next question...


Why is it a problem anyway?

Which brings us to another question...

Which brings us to another question...

Around 37% of the sample population say that our traditions and sanskar stop us from talking about sex. Many prefer respecting parents over discussing sex. Almost 29% think our education system is the problem whereas 11% said we're totally devoid of logic. The remaining 22% blame the mentality of the people and not the lack of sex education.

Here are some of the responses:

It's a natural part of anyone's life

"The answer to the question is hypocrisy because the same so called 'sanskari' people refusing to speak publicly about the issue have been caught in broad daylight watching porn inside the karnataka state parliament and one of them being minister of women affairs." @mayankv16

A very disturbing stigma attached to it...


"Cause god forbid the youth realised where they came from" @aayushi_jaswani

A philosophical point of view as well...

"The "sanskaari" and "judgemental" people are a giftbox to this country which when opened gives a punch on ur face (if u knw wat i mean)" @ishitaaryaa_21

Wrong preferences...

It isn't a bad thing, just a private one...

That is all for now.
