Porn – a word that titillates excitement and fear at the same time. Most Indians, especially men, watch it, fantasize about it, but talk — well only in hushed tones and behind closed doors.

So is watching porn only a male thing? Do women watch porn?

Well yes! Women are human too and sex is a carnal desire — present both in men and women. India is the third largest consumer of Pornhub, the largest pornographic site on the internet and viewership among Indian women has seen a steady rise on the site over the years. Reason being, women are increasingly becoming more aware about their sexuality and sexual needs and are not holding back from watching and experimenting with sex.

Last week, we had our weekly #WomenOnTheMove chat over at Twitter, where we discussed whether India is ready to accept that women also have sexual desires and watching porn is not only the prerogative of men but women enjoy watching it as much as them. This is what they said.

Women have sexual desires too — are the makers mindful of that?

Never miss a story from India's real women.
