Zahra Haider On What She Learnt Having Sex As A Young Woman In Pakistan


Pakistani journalist Zahra Haider talks about  her pre-marital sexual experiences as a young person in Islamabad for Vice magazine.

Haider, now in her 20s, relocated to Canada just in advance to her nineteenth birthday. She composed that she had utilized hotel spaces for her contacts and that her parents “tossed a totally nonsensical and melodramatic fit” when they got some answers concerning them.

Her story has been shared a great many times and has produced a furious open deliberation. Some individuals took a special case to her vulgarism that Pakistan had one of the “the most noteworthy porn-watching masses on the world” and there the Pakistanis were “too horny and burning for sexual role”. Others concentrated on her confirmation that she involved in sexual relationships by way of “just about twelve personalities” as an adolescent in Islamabad.

In a public statement to Haider on Facebook, which itself was shared more than 6,000 times, columnist Ali Moeen Nawazish reproached her for passing “social judgements” on Pakistanis. Nawazish told Trending that there was no “confirmation to go down (Haider’s) affirmation that Pakistan is the most porn-watching nation on the planet or that we are sexually suppressed”. He included that Haider’s experience as one of Pakistan’s “world class” is not demonstrative of that of other Pakistani ladies.

Haider said  that she composed the piece so as to support more open speech about sex.

“For instance, I got a message from somebody in Pakistan who lost his sibling to Aids. He said that his sibling plainly felt disgrace while examining his sexuality. The man said as his sibling didn’t comprehend what was going on to his body, he lost his life.”
