Two esteemed bloggers, visitors at the Pak Tea House (PTH) complained that PTH through its laissez faire comment policy was turning into a brothel. A piece from an international publication on the booming sex trade in Pakistan was posted here. Now it is true that the term sex invites attention and clicks by the browsers. Google figures have time and again shown the enormous searches for the term ‘sex’ emanating from the Land of the Pure.
It is therefore an issue that concerns Pakistan at its core: the hypocrisy relating to sexual desires and the frustrations that are part of the baggage. We in no way wanted to invite readers to leave their numbers, email and chat IDs for nocturnal secretive activities.
But it happened. I have removed almost all the comments that were left by men and women where invitations for sexual liaison were made in the comments space. Yet, I am not a prude and most of the authors at this forum are also not inclined towards Victorian sensibilities.
There is a need to therefore invite writings, comments and analyses of this vital issue. Psychologists have been concerned about the results of sexual frustrations in the contemporary society and how damaging it is for the youth.
Readers might be interested in these earlier posts at Lahore Nama, the other blog that I manage, which also invited some insightful comments on how distorted and skewed the understanding and yearning for sex is in the beloved homeland.
