Is the payoff underwhelming for everything that goes into getting it? Sexting? Tinder? Grinder? All that effort for just five minutes?

Here are five big quotes from Karan Johar’s column:

“By the time I lost my virginity, I was 26 and that was after Kuch Kuch Hota Hai when I felt mildly famous. And so fame took the place of some of the shame.”

“With fame I stopped feeling I had to hide: lights didn’t have to be all the way off, I felt I could flirt without being slapped. But it was hard work getting there from the fat kid I was – ashamed of his body, ashamed of who he was, largely sexually ignorant and convinced he wasn’t attractive to anyone. Which is probably why the first time I had sex, all I could say was ‘thank you’!”

“I also wonder if we are programmed by movies and rom-coms and ads and the general popular narrative to feel sexy in ways that aren’t achievable. We seem to forget that sex when it happens is often clumsy and sweaty and sloppy and not always that sexy.”

“I feel liberated not experiencing it anymore – or chasing it any more. There’s no longer fear. I have now proudly informed my therapist that I am going through AOMO – the acceptance of missing out.”

“I’m also saying (to myself as much as to anyone else) that it’s ok to feel unsexy. It’s ok to feel nervous, it’s ok to not have moments that feel written out of a movie script. I feel Victoria may have a Secret but you don’t have to know it! And those Calvin Klein models – don’t be fooled by the socks that they got.”
