Terms associated with sexual fantasies gain much popularity sooner than others, and in India especially, where sex is a hush-hush word. It is also a taboo in the South Asian country.

However, according to a report by Business Insider, that quoted a Gleeden report on the top five erotic fantasies of India, shows the fights of imagination across India are soaring.

Indian couples, especially residing in Tier-2 cities, have shown a higher propensity towards fantasizing about having multiple sexual partners, added the report.

“Breaking the monotony in the bedroom can be a fun and exciting way of exploring your sexuality and deepening your connection with your partner,” BI quoted Sybill Shidell, Country Manager, India as saying.
