Okay if you’re under say 18 or whatever age of majority is where you are, please don’t continue reading this post without your parent or guardian present. And if you are able to read this post with your parent or guardian, you are a lot more mature than I am. Anyway, when V was under a year old we visited the explicit Temples of khajuraho temples. Yes explicit, like extremely “let’s show every possible kama sutra thought in the world” explicit.
Is India conservative? not back then!
The Khajuraho Temples are believed to be over 1000 years old. Many of these temples are still in decent shape, while some are in ruins. These tantric temples are around 650 kilometers from Delhi in Madhya Pradesh. The Khajuraho Group of Monuments is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is a top tourist attraction in India.
Tantric Temples of India
So since we are living in India we’ll be visiting a few more places for our vacations. It will be great for the kids to see more of India, but this, I must tell you, is one place I wouldn’t want to go to now. While I’m all for honesty in how babies are made (love!), and we use the word penis (though not vulva, but I’m sure my kids know what a vagina is), I’m not interested in explaining these!
Tantric Sex is depicted in some, but not all, of the temples. Many are just every day carvings, but some are full on “what are they doing there” . oh. um. OH MY.
Now while I know this is explicit, it is art. What is accepted at one time and in one culture varies. We need not be prudish, but we also don’t have to say it is for us. Right?
Here are a few of the favorites from my readers. More can be found on my Google+ page. Feel free to +1 and share
