A magazine that’s got Pakistanis discussing sex

Islamabad: A magazine that brainstorms gender issues has got Pakistanis talking about sex and its politics. Comments are piling up on the magazine’s website that was launched a year ago by Lahore-based women Kyla Pasha and Sarah Suhail. Named Chay,short for an Urdu curse word,they want Pakistanis to end the shame surrounding the three-letter word. “The taboo and silence around sex and sexuality are oppressive on all of us,irrespective of gender,and lead,at the very least,to unhappiness in our daily lives and,more often,to violence,shame,depression,ill health and general social malaise,” reads the mission statement at chaymagazine. com.
