#Female Pleasure is an eyeopener even for people who think they know all about the struggles of women in the 21st century. Out of the five stories documented here, the Tokyo and Kenyan ones are so startling you would think if such practices are still going on. And as per one of the persons, they still are. The topic of female genital mutilation (FGM) or sexual assault on children is as horrid as it sounds and the worst part is that it is prevalent not just in Middle Eastern or African countries. It's happening everywhere. The pressure from the society, the arresting grip of the government, and the uselessness of religions are the talking points here, all of which make sense. #Female Pleasure is a document that may require some good editing but it is still a valid debate opener and should be mandatory viewing for government officials, religious fanatics, and torchbearers of the society. I was thoroughly taken aback not because of the content but because of the opinions of one tantrik (priest) who tries to explain homophobia as a difference between Western and Indian cultures. Blood-curdling. TN.
