We spoke to young Indian women about their initial sexual experiences. We learnt that initial sexual experiences end with young women feeling insecure, guilty and scared. These emotions remain unspoken, and these problems remain unsolved.
Will you voice your story?
When other women hear their own voice in your story, their courage will grow, and the many stories that have been held inside will come pouring out.

Striking a balance to accommodate for your partner's needs while not compromising on your own, is not always easy. Let's allow ourselves the time and errors it may take to find other ways to express love and commitment.
I hope you know now that perfect sex is any kind of sex you enjoy while feeling comfortable and safe. Real sex is very different from what’s on screen. It can be messy, sweaty, clumsy, confusing and different for each person. Let's collectively set a new and real benchmark for first sex.
It’s okay to be worried about your health and natural to be scared about uncertainty, isn't it? A good way to combat this is to stay informed. The more we know about ourselves the more likely we are to feel in control. Let's make post sex effects common knowledge!
It shouldn’t be your burden to hide your sexual activities. Your private life is yours to share or not. We may need to mindfully choose the right location or the doctor for now, and can help each other with our experiences. But this must not be the status quo. We need non judgemental services and safer spaces.
We are often shamed for anything that may not seem 'regular'. You would be surprised to know how normal your experience is, if only more of us spoke up in our own circles. And we still can. Sex was more hushed before we came and will be much less hushed after us.
Fearing an unplanned pregnancy is very common after penetrative sex. We've all been there, especially after unprotected sex. Do remember that no matter what the situation, there is always a solution
No matter what the situation, there is always a solution. No pregnancy test result is actually unmanageable. Sometimes it takes support and shared responsibility to make it manageable. Let's be the people who can provide that support until that support is not needed at all.
How might we can address these unspoken fears?
