Philanderers Want Virgin Brides*
Learned from a report in The Telegraph
(UK) that an Indian actress, Khusboo
is facing the wrath of her countrymen because of her comments that a modern man should not "expect his bride to be a virgin".
- Khushboo, a 35-year-old Tamil film star and television game show host, made her controversial statement in a magazine which surveyed celebrities' views on pre-marital sex.
- The resulting outcry - which saw Khushboo being served with a gagging order to keep the peace - has ignited fresh debate over the gap between public morality and private attitudes towards sex in India. Yesterday the High Court of Tamil Nadu, the state where the controversy began, ordered its police director general to draw up a plan to prevent the Khushboo protests growing violent.
Ah, the insecurity of the males. I applaud Ms Khusboo for publicly stating what needed to be said. As to the men in her home state, Tamil Nadu
, they deserve a kick in their goolies
(balls). I watched the movie "Kinsey
" last night on video. The men who are up in arms in India over virgin brides might learn something from it. But probably their minds are closed to the concept of sexual equality. This 2004 film caused an uproar among the conservative Christians here in America too.
