And here is some information on our recent issues of In Plainspeak...

Accessibility and Sexuality, August 2017 issue of In Plainspeak

We can speak of many situations in terms of access or its lack for all kinds of people, and it will always give us insight into the society we live in. Check out our August issue to explore different aspects between Accessibility and Sexuality.

Communities and Sexuality, July 2017 issue of In Plainspeak

Some people define themselves through commonalities. To keep that commonality becomes an unwritten rule. What lets you in? What keeps you out? Ironically, even communities of people who do not conform to mainstream norms of sexuality or gender have their own norms. Our July issue explores different aspects between Communities and Sexuality.

Internet and Sexuality, June 2017 issue of In Plainspeak

Our desire to connect is perhaps one of the human aspirations that both Sexuality and the Internet serve. And with the Internet we now have new ways, unthought of even twenty years ago. Check out our June issue to exploredifferent aspects between Internet and Sexuality.

Money and Sexuality, May 2017 issue of In Plainspeak

When money can determine so many of our decisions – entire courses of lives – how can it not have a powerful, almost inextricable relationship with sexuality?To explore various ways in which money can influence Sexuality, check out our May issue.

Boundaries and Sexuality, April 2017 issue of In Plainspeak

Drawing lines can be useful in defining ideas; boundaries of personal space help keep us secure from unwanted advances. There are also times when boundaries can limit us... Check out our April issue to exploredifferent aspects between Boundaries and Sexuality.

Marriage and Sexuality, March 2017 issue of In Plainspeak

Marriage and sexuality have been bagged together and tinted with a bed-of-roses romance that has been unpacked and critiqued for propagating oppressive societal structures of gender, class, caste, and sexuality. Check out our March issue to explore different aspects between Marriage and Sexuality.

Self care and Sexuality, February 2017 issues of In Plainspeak

What is the self, and what does it mean to give care? Without care, can there be a self at all? As the theme of February’s In Plainspeak issues, we locate self-care (and self and care) in relation to its connections with sexuality.

Films and Sexuality, January 2017 issue of In Plainspeak

The arts hold great sway on how sexuality is viewed, represented, and understood. Does art imitate life, or life, art? Check out our January issue to exploredifferent aspects between Films and Sexuality.

People’s Movements and Sexuality, December 2016 issues of In Plainspeak

For as long as we can conceive of the existence of human civilisation, we can expect there to have been people’s movements. Read more in our December issue of In Plainspeak to explore how People’s Movements and Sexuality are related.

Fantasy and Sexuality, November 2016 issues of In Plainspeak

Fantasy is make-believe. We make something up and then we believe it in order to make it exist. In some contexts, the make-believe is relegated to the realm of mere ‘play’ but there’s no denying that there’s more to make-believing. Check out our November issue to exploredifferent aspects between Fantasy and Sexuality.

Parenting and Sexuality, October issues of In Plainspeak

To parent is to learn to teach & receive more surprise lessons ourselves. Discover how Parenting and Sexuality connect with each other in the October issue of In Plainspeak.

#TalkSexuality Campaign by TARSHI in collaboration with Youth Ki Awaaz

While growing up, any conversation that may be even remotely connected to sexuality is often evaded, be it in educational institutions or within our homes. Yet, these questions form a major part of our growing up years.
Through this campaign  #TalkSexuality, TARSHI in collaboration with Youth Ki Awaaz hopes to create conversations around these questions and discuss the need for Comprehensive Sexuality Education? Do join in!
