Well if the sex is done between a lady of more then 16 years of age with her free will & consent it will not be covered under the offence of Rape as defined under section 375 of the Indian Penal Code. If the sex is done between the parties for no commercial purposes then it will not be covered under the provisions of the IMMORAL TRAFFIC (PREVENTION) ACT 1956. Other then that there is no legal bar to indulge in such pre-marital sex, but for social & medical reasons.

it is legal but not hassle free
if u have booked a room in a hotel and having sex and police raids the hotels they will harass the consenting adults of commercial sex terms. media will flash yr pics. at the end of the day there will be no case . But whole episode will make a hole in your pocket, and make police rich.
Indian police take special pleasure to raid such places to make money on sly leaving the field free for serious criminals.
Sex among consenting adults though legal is a good source of income of police al ...more
