Instant satisfaction Most of the Indian men who approached us on this site wanted to set up a meeting at the earliest, almost as if time was running out.Amit Sehgal, 49, was a stockbroker and married to someone who is “employed” (he didn’t specify her profession) for over 20 years.Probably every woman in India has one story about having been subject to lecherous looks as she has walked down the street. The male gaze turns more brazen by several orders of magnitude.Ketki Pradhan, a French teacher in Pondicherry, told me about the time she was holding her German boyfriend’s hand when a group of men started making vulgar gestures.
The first person who approached us was a 43-year-old businessman, named Shekhar Sharma. While he frequently asked us if we were “okay with having sex with an unknown person”, he refused to tell us why he was so eager to cheat on his wife.
When we refused to comply, he asked us for our picture to compensate.
Eventually, when we got talking about what led him to this site, he started complaining about his wife.
She then asked me questions about our wedding and everything that had led to it. I later kicked myself for having misunderstood their questions as friendly banter.
Then the other woman, who had remained silent until then, asked me for proof. When many Indians see one of their women with a man of a different race, they make assumptions, and offer unsolicited advice.
