1) India and the world are going through a technological revolution:
This is a readily accepted fact. We all have access to limitless information at our fingertips. Even our otherwise poor country has managed to bring the magic of phones and internet to a significant proportion of its citizen's. India's tally of 300 million smart-phone users could grow by more than 50% in the next few years.
2) India is going through a sexual revolution:
This is evident in our Bollywood movies- in the popularity of hook up apps- in the exponential increase in sales of contraceptives (India’s market for emergency contraceptives jumped 88% between 2009 and 2014)- in the booming sex toy industry(Indian sex toy industry is expected to grow by 8 times till 2020)- in the recently conducted surveys and polls.
3) Our primary
guide through the sexual revolution is the Internet- Internet Porn:
In the absence of sex education in our schools and at our homes, the primary source guiding this sexual revolution is the internet. On the internet, porn rules. The majority of us watch porn(30-70% of data browsing revenues for India’s communications services providers comes from customers viewing porn), hence even if you don't, your sexuality and the sexuality of others around you is profoundly impacted by internet porn.
4) Yes, we have always had pornography, but this is different:
We have always had fatty fried food, right? So why the fuss about junk food today? Because added cultural and economic factors make the junk food of today different. Same goes for internet porn. Internet porn is unique. Leading experts from around the world agree that it is unique in the way it impacts our culture, our relationships, our youth, and most importantly it is unique in the way it affects our kids.
5) Understanding the current pornified culture will help you have the best sex of your life:
Psychologists and sexologists from all across India are seeing an exponential rise in the number of patients coming to them with complaints about lack of sexual satisfaction or inability to perform sexually. These patients are mostly men and sometimes couples. Our sexuality is not static, it can be influenced and it can be thrown off balance. Understanding how porn impacts us at a neurological level, can help in understanding how to have great sex.
6) If you are a parent or plan to be one- your ignorance could ruin your kid's life:
On an average, kids these days are exposed to hardcore internet porn by the time they are 11 years old. In India, we have the first generation of kids growing up on the internet from the day they are born. How is this impacting them? An adolescents brain works differently from an adult brain. Hence how porn might impact an adult is very different from how it affects an adolescent. As a parent, it is imperative we understand the impact of the pornified sexual culture on our kids. Pornsitan will not only help you understand the impact, it will also give you practical steps to ensure your kids wellbeing.
7) The book is not about judging porn as good or bad- it is about understanding through science
Pornistan has interviews and quotes from leading experts in the fields of neuroscience, psychiatry, behavioural psychology and sexology from India and around the world. It includes easy to read summaries from dozens of groundbreaking research papers, experiments, surveys and much more.
This book will change the way you look at sexuality, and it will change the way you look at porn.
