The day is not far when the word ‘sex’ will be a normal thing to say or to speak about. Society is growing and accepting and busting out the stigma. There are ladies out there who speak about it without any hesitation and treating it like, ‘yeah! It’s not a big deal.’
Leeza Mangaldas, a Youtuber who tackles everything in her videos from sexually transmitted infection to whether G-spot exists, no it’s not. At the age of 25, she realized that she had so many understandings about her body and which needs to be filled up. In an interview with TOI, She says, “I realized that my orgasms aren’t these mysterious, unpredictable things that happen now and then if I’m lucky, and if everything is just so.” Later she said, this realization about her, inspired her to educate people about female pleasure, contraception, and reproductive rights. A 30-year-old says, “When you bear people talking about sex, it’s either this slapstick comedic take as if it’s a funny thing only other people do or it’s laced with judgment or shame, particularly regarding female sexuality, I tend to talk about it like it’s a recipe or movie review…..a normal part of life all of us have to contend with.”
She is not the only creator who speaks about sex to break the myth and trying to normalize the conversation about it. There are other women like Indrajit Devpriyam, Tanvi Malick, who are openly discussing this topic via videos, their Social media posts, or by organizing campaigns.
Some people are taking it in a context with physical health, while Tanvi Malick, a 27-year-old who is studying to become a clinical psychologist, takes it in the context of mental health. She was the advisor for many of her friends and she realizes that there is a lack of spaces to talk about sex that is unavailable to single women. She even encourages people to not to hesitate or to feel embarrassed in seeking professional help.
Mangaldas says in her video that it is ok to talk about how many times you should masturbate, or how much size matters to women. She investigates a lot before making her content and if she is unsure then she prefers to consult with the gynaec. On her videos, she gets a lot of creepy comments and faces criticism but these things never stopped her by creating such videos. She says, this is a part of her work and it is ok if some people are not liking her videos. But some people support her and other ladies who stand and speak on this matter and take their advice positively.
