TARSHI has been engaging with people on sexual and reproductive health and rights related issues for over 21 years. Through these years, we have found that there are a lot of questions and myths around sexuality which remain unanswered due to the silence around these topics. Here are responses to basic sexuality information. There is also much confusion and discomfort around what Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) is about and its relevance in the country. Here are some FAQs on CSE
