Q.

Women are absolutely safe in revealing dresses in a large no of countries including many neighboring countries of India in S. E. Asia and also in far east. Unfortunately it is not so in India. Why it is so? Does it indicate that our male population is sex crazy? Or does it indicate they are sex starved due to economic conditions? Or does it indicate that Indian male feel women are meant for physical enjoyment only?

Because in India BS like your dress and your habits are associated with your CHARACTER and many times it don't make sense. For men it is things like visiting special Govt run lassi shop or going to a liquor shop. For dudes, being seen in a special lassi shop like the one near Jaisalmer Fort can sometimes break a marriage proposal !!!! Even if the establishment is perfectly legal in fact run by the Govt of India! So enjoying a spiked lassi drink is all it takes to break a vow of marriage?!?!?!?!?!?! I am not sure u can find an East Asian country with such retarded social norms.....

So for girls, the same sort of values are attributed towards dresses whereas in men it is attributed towards vice! Guys get isolated from society and girls get assaulted by society- for breaking those puritanical social norms. Which is why I sometimes get a soft corner for Pol Pot of Kampauchea and his view on urbanites.

Well the thing in India is most guys don't have a thorough understanding of what a ...more

U want to say that revealing their flesh not dress? it is true and not a very good idea. this is cheap. India is an ancient Culture and Privacy and Purity has an important aspect here. Indian males are as sex starved as foreigners only. not more or less. our country is not licentious.

Real deep and meaningful question sir . Still there are lots of communities in the world where dress is unknown and they do not wear any .Does that mean they all are sexless ? If so their society would be extinct ,which is not the case . Dress itself evolved as a symbol of wealth to show others that the woman belong to higher class, so lay off . Psychology says that human curiosity is initiated and provoked when any thing is hidden . Revealing dresses , open show of affection by hugging and kissing is practiced in western world and it is certainly no less cultured than eastern . The eastern society lay heavy stress on fully covered and least overt show of affection and proclaimed it as culture oriented reflections which in my opinion is not right . The value of human life is more precious to westerners than we easterners . The easterners more curiosity on women is only due to wrong attributes of culture on dress and behavior codes and it more induced than a natural traits of easter ...more

Dressed to kill.Everyone male or female want to draw attention from around. We do try to look atrractive and dress play a big role in our appearnace. However in India religion and culture play a major role and majority of people dont like to break cultural or religious rules.People in SE asia or far east are not deeply religious.In India majority of people are struglling middle class where first thought is to earn a respectable and consistent livelihood and appearance and look donot play important role.Social security is also very important in our society and a history of intercaste marriage can bring big problem for younger sisters marriage.I dont think revealing clothes have big impact on sex desires untill the peoples mind is dirty from inside.

I dont think so ----women in India, as I feel, are logically safe in whateve4r outfits they may wear . I have personally seen in many countries that while women dresses of revealing nature does not matter much in urban areas , such outfits are looked down upon.Again in most of thesecountries , with the exception of Thailand ,woimen follow muslims governance for their daily life and appear in fully covered dress . In phillipines and Thailand , sex being marketing product and tourists attraction in the cities and tourist spots , they rather encourage women in fless trade to wear provocative dresses and mind you the rate of sex-crime is no way less there than India . Again ,if you at all recall , Indians have seen enough revealing sensetion of dress of Sharmila Tagore , incidentally a Bengali heroine , in Kshmir Ki Kali dating back in early sixties .

Any revealing dress worn by young women could have its repurcussions in the form of vulgar / derisive comments and molestation. Indian metro males are more emancipated now having kept company with females during their co-ed years. However the ones with rural background are generally berefit of such interactions and in closed societies they hardly have their curiosities cleared. When they come to metros, they are dazzled by the openness and start ogling and groping gullible females.
You may be right in your last sentence albiet limited to these closed socities, where the norm is to treat them as sex toys in the night or use them as free labour. Women in such households are simply glorifies unpaid servants and nothing else.

We are still bit orthodox from our childhood regarding sex . Still there is restriction of sex before marriage. I will not tell it bad to me sex is a complete package .. Sex contains all, bodies, souls, Meanings, proofs, purities, delicacies, results, promulgations, Songs, commands, health, pride, the maternal mystery, the seminal milk, All hopes, benefactions, bestowals, all the passions, loves, beauties, delights of the earth. Just for 3 minutes pleasure , why should we forgo so many virtues ? I will be happy to remain as orthodox

In western countries, S. E. Asia and also in far east its mostly physical hunger and there is not much unity in soul causing divorce rate as high as 60 %. .

Yes , you are right to some extent that this restriction affects our unfulfilled desire but thats desire only u

Our culture does not feel comfortable in such conditions though modernity is spreading fastly but still large population doess not adopt beside religious discourses have also containted this habit. so when revealing dresses are worn there is tendency to attract as not so much freedom is expected also such crimes are done by people belonging to ffluent societies who are not afraid with law,
