With all domestic help absent in the current times, the poet had to step up to do what she had never been enamoured of, and surprisingly found herself falling in love!
No, I shall not lie; you weren’t my first
Not even the second or the third, to be honest;
You tried to allure me several times,
But I maintained a considerable distance every time.
You were pitched to me by people around,
Few said your company was relaxing,
Others found you soothing and gratifying;
And some of your ardent fans even shared stories,
Of how indulging in you was an addiction of a lifetime.
I dismissed all your advances;
I circumvented all the pleadings.
Till a few days back, when something happened.
You were pushed upon me like regulation and a norm
I tried figuring out alternatives, but all Adhoc
And ultimately, had to embrace you with open arms.
And now that we are together;
It feels like a completely different world.
Every part of you has risen to a new beauty and a distinct character;
The aromas and the texture; the shape and colour
The taste and the juiciness; the freshness and ripeness
Everything about you gives me an orgasmic high.
My love for you may have brewed slowly,
but it is like that perfect cup of coffee.
Like the overpowering aroma of brimming green tea.
Platonic or Peace – how do I define our companionship,
Layered and deep is what I believe it is.
And as I lose myself to you,
I see cumin and curry dancing to the tunes of heat and oil.
The just-right splash of spices, how I make them play to their real character;
The polka dots of mustard accentuate and punctuate;
The ballet of the perfectly chopped veggies in their prime.
The simmering and stewing of the lentils and rice,
How they have become the staccatos and legatos of my life.
I feel like an artist, and you are my muse;
Smitten by you, I think I am creating a masterpiece every time.
You are my joie de vivre in these pandemic times.
Listen, we may distance apart in future times,
But like a true lover, I promise to stay with you my whole life

Half a decade ago marriage was a bargain between two famlies. Most of the women were married off to a man who was either well off or who could fend for his wife and family. Today the parameters of marriage have changed. Women no longer marry for the sake of economic security. Their expectations from marriage have changed in the course of years because of their changed status.
As women grew independent, their patterns of choosing partners have changed dramatically. Now women choose men who they feel can satiate their emotional as well as physical needs. Intimacy is no longer the physicality that happened between two people under the supervision of elders of the family for the sole purpose of procreation. Intimacy in today’s marriages involve understanding and fulfilling each other’s emotional as well as sexual needs.
So before you decide to hook up see if you know these five things about intimacy.
The recent Bold Care ad breaks some long standing taboos in Indian society about women's sexual pleasure and erectile dysfunction in men.
The co-owner of the new sexual health brand – Bold Care, Ranveer Singh, recently shared that he wants to focus at creating awareness amongst people about men’s sexual health and aims to provide a tangible solution to millions of people across the country. The new Bold Care ad which was dropped last week has taken the internet by storm. Netizens are ogling at the ad and cannot stop talking about it and how?
The Bold Care ad has created a buzz for multiple reasons. One, because of the unexpected collaboration between the A-list Bollywood actor and co-owner of the brand – Ranveer Singh and (wait for it… drumrolls please) the adult film star Johnny Sins.
People were not ready to see Johnny Sins in an Indian commercial ad and had their jaws dropped to the floor when they saw him dressed in a blue kurta and a golden coat and tie acting in a saas-bahu rip off. The internauts have claimed this unusual duo as the biggest crossover ever – bigger than Deadpool and Wolverine coming together! Second, the ad aims to normalise the stigma related to men’s sexual wellbeing and the ease with which it can be addressed.
