    While people will connect the name of the discussion with Pramada, with the show on t.v. about 4 well to do women, who only seem to be hindered by their whims (or whatever else people may perceive), perhaps the discussion could challenge just that.

    Mumbai is a great place to see how people from all sorts of backgrounds are constantly rubbing shoulders, and living some outrageous experiences. Whereever we are from, the city does challenge our notions of sexuality, where all kinds of people express it in many different ways.

    I found the city to have given me space and visibility. I found women who challenged some notions, that could not have been done, where I come from. It is exciting. Sex (wonderful as it can be) can also be complex, to think about. And we could discuss that.
