Most women are reluctant to report matches from dating apps Sex dating India de retribution, which leaves the assaulters free to pursue others. While apps like Tinder and Hinge have helped liberate women by removing, even if to a small degree, the stigma attached to casual sex, one hard truth is becoming increasingly clear: Women are getting assaulted on their dates and see no recourse in the organisations that set them up. Meghna, 25, of Delhi told ThePrint about a terrifying experience she had on Tinder a couple of years ago.
Going through a troubled time in her life, Meghna logged into the app as a distraction and matched with a man who was into BDSM — a form of erotic roleplaying that deals with bondage, discipline, dominance and submission. When Meghna tried to leave, the man caught hold of her hand, blocked the door, and tried to placate her.
Meghna said the ordeal left her in shock. She subsequently blocked the man on Facebook, and stopped using Tinder for a while, choosing to switch to Truly Madly, an Indian app. Mini, a year-old former software developer, was looking for a man from outside her professional sphere when she agreed to a date with a writer-photographer on Tinder four years ago.
In the worst case scenario, it leaves women with unplanned pregnancies. Official data on the of people who face sexual harassment on dating apps is virtually non-existent, with organisations like Tinder, Grindr and Hinge reluctant to share s. However, independent studies from around the world, with varying sample sizes, can give us a fair idea. Of the platforms covered, Tinder and OkCupid topped the list, with 39 per cent and 38 per cent users of the apps, respectively, reporting feeling harassed.
When women are targeted, the abuse is more likely to be gendered, sustained, sexualized and linked to offline violence. Experiences of sexual harassment spawning from interactions on dating apps are so common among women that there is an Instagram with overfollowers dedicated to exposing it. None, however, responded to requests for data on the of users who have reported sexual harassment on their platforms. A spokesperson from Bumble, which is due to officially launch in India by the end of this year, said information was currently under an embargo imposed by their headquarters in the United States ahead of the unveiling.

Across testimonies recorded by ThePrint, what emerges as perhaps the biggest pitfall of dating apps is not being able search for specific members or run a thorough background check on partners users have matched with. In one, a man she had matched with swiftly turned her over during intercourse and penetrated her anally, without asking her.
She just wanted him out of the house first thing in the morning. It took a conversation with her flatmates and a little retrospect to fully process what had happened. For Meghna, reporting was out of the question. For Vishal Paramanik, a year-old corporate employee, the only way forward from a Grindr date rape was to adapt his own expectations. Vishal was gang-raped by his ex-boyfriend and a match from Grindr, an app dedicated to gay dating, a few months ago in Delhi.
Vishal stopped meeting people from Grindr for a few months after that. Also read: Behind Grindr India lies a world of sexual assualt, rape and blackmail. Of the seven people ThePrint spoke to, none hit the report button. Without data and a larger sample size, it is impossible to ascertain how many or why people feel uncomfortable reporting abusive matches.

According to Kavita Arora, a leading psychiatrist in Delhi, the lack of Sex dating India de could have to do with how social media has skewed our understanding of danger.

Without proactive encouragement, survivors resort to what they have for years: Silence, or, like Manisha, talking to friends to seek solace. For Mini, it was searching for the right words to articulate her sense of violation.
For another woman, the ordeal may have just begun. India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises. But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle. ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.
Support Our Journalism. Just about every case described here is of a hookup, not a date. Place yourself in shady situations with someone you barely know and you take your chances. Why are Indians moving towards Westernise culture. We believed having sex after marriage, but nowadays people tend to forget and mess up things. Preserve your dignity and life for one partner. Oh really have you Sex dating India de been taught regarding autonomy over body and sexual rights regardless of gender.
Search about consent on google and then talk what you are saying is an example of rape culture and victim blaming by your comment it seems you know nothing about indian history and kamasutra india gave world kamasutra. Marital rape do you know about it. The nature of comments on this makes me sick. A women is allowed to up on an app like Tinder.
She is allowed to smoke or drink on that date.
ing up for a date does not mean she is giving consent to have sex you morons. If she gave consent to vaginal sex. If the guy forces her to have anal sex. Women are taking care of themselves. So we are attaked a lot more as people are not afraid of the legal actions. By pulling up this fake victim card and infatalizing women, you need to promote social responsibility.
For all one knows, you could be ing up to have sex with a psycopath or a sociopath. When we areyour parents always tell not to go with strangers or even talk to them. You need to stand up for yourselves.
India is not a western society. I admit that Indian men are assholes. But women need to be self conscious given the rising of rape cases and assaults. I admit that Indian men are shit. Everyone knows these apps are for hook ups and guys and girls are predators here. Mini was not drunk I guess. They have ed up to have sex with strangers mean they have enough knowledge about the risks that accompany this and if not then they are the dumbest people on earth.
The guys were not their boyfriends that they will be extra careful about the girls. It is the responsibility of the women to take care of themselves rather than relying on the strangers. Are you fucking retarded?
Sex cafes are the need of the hour. Walk in, pay up, the consent form, have sex and move on. Press the emergency alert button if things go bad behind the closed doors. By definition BDSM is hights so what do you expect, in degrees, well that is foolish. These play are made by animals for there entertainment. These are things you should live your life without, even knowing and definitely without experienceing.
It will end up in sorrow cry afterwards. So protect yourself and definitely not do which is hights. I am amazed how one can think that stranger, alcohol and BDSM can be just fun. Really, what is the need for these online dating sites. Those logging in to these sites do so with the intention of having fun time, so should expect these hard experiences from total strangers. We all can lead Sex dating India de peaceful and prosperous life with out these online dating apps. Find time to meet your real life friends and families, play sports, find some hobbies, do mediation and more importantly be truthful to your partner, there is no better person than your own life partner.
