India is a country famous for being the home of the kama sutra yet it has very few porn stars. Indian culture can be conservative with society preferring women to dress modestly due to religion. Is that the reason that the country that invented kama sutra has so many Indian pornstars? 

Kama sutra might be best known as a guide to alternative sex positions. Some of which seem to be more like yoga than actual sex. Not everybody knows however that it originated in India and is far more than just a flexibility test.

The kama sutra originated as a Hindu text instructing people how to practise the best sex possible. Rather than solely treating sex as a hedonistic pursuit, kama sutra focuses on connecting more deeply in a physical and spiritual way.

Indian pornstars seem to capture the tastes of the public in multiple ways. Not only by breaking taboos associated with Indian women always having to dress modestly. But also by showcasing the exotic appeal of Indian women with their unique beauty.

Sunny Leone

Sunny Leone is an Indian-American actress born in Canada. Although both of her parents are Indian, Sunny has American citizenship but is popular in Bollywood. Despite having started her career as a porn star, she defied her religious parents and has been a success.

Karenjit Kaur Vohra grew up as a Sikh attending a Catholic girls school in Ontario. She started  her working life at a bakery and then at a Jiffy Lube, before deciding to branch out into porn. Choosing the name Sunny Leone became the definitive step in launching her career.

Sunny Leone first graced the covers of Penthouse as a Penthouse Pet before being signed by Vivid Entertainment. Although Sunny originally just did lesbian porn from 2001, she did begin shooting heterosexual scenes from 2007 with her fiance, Matt Erikson.

As her career developed, Sunny widened her porn repertoire to shooting with other famous faces including Charles Dera and James Deen. (I am so jealous right now!) But also decided to try mainstream appearances, modelling and acting.

Sunny’s appearance in the reality TV show Bigg Boss in 2011 caused a stir as viewers complained that the show was promotig a pornstar. However her popularity grew massively and led to her landing the lead role in Jism 2 directed by Mahesh Bhatt. 

Since then, Sunny Leone has transitioned from a porn star and model to being an actress in mainstream Bollywood movies. She lives in Mumbai with her husband Daniel Weber and their three children.

Indian culture vs porn

Women like Sunny Leone demonstrate that Indian pornstars can be incredibly popular. Yet they also face massive scrutiny due to the expectations within Indian culture. The main religions in India consist of Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism and Sikhism.

Most religions are against porn in principle due to promoting chastity outside of marriage. In India, the culture is largely much stricter than in the West with arranged marriages being common place as well as the influence of the caste system remaining.

It’s not surprising then that launching a porn career as an Indian can be challenging. In breaking away from family expectations and going against social attitudes too. Yet we’ve seen a huge surge in popularity for pornstars who break the taboos of their heritage.

Sahara Knite is yet another pornstar of Indian heritage who is gaining rapid popularity. Not only by having some amazing scenes under her belt in her porn career. But also by appearing in mainstream shows such as Game of Thrones as the prostitute, Armeca. Her lesbian sex scene in Season 1 Episode 7 was voted best lesbian scene and is one of the top nudes ever in GoT!

Sahara grew up in London to Indian parents, working in the fashion industry before becoming a model and exploring the Adult world. Since 2004, she’s worked as a webcam girl, chat host on channels like Babestation.xxx, as well as being a professional Mistress and Session Wrestler.

You can watch Sahara Knite perform the kama sutra for full ideas on how to practise certain techniques! While also enjoying her sexy images in well known magazines like Mayfair and Hustler.  On her personal site, www.saharaknite.co.uk you can even arrange to meet Sahara for the ultimate luxury of a massage, domination session or wrestling!

Why men want to see Indian pornstars?

Many Indian men seeking Indian  pornstars and escorts want to see women from their own culture who enjoyed sex and were confident. Women like Sunny Leone and Sahara Knite certainly show why seeing passionate Indian women would be hot.

Yet some men also said that they wanted to see women of other nationalities who weren’t so strict in following their cultural expectations. India doesn’t have as many porn stars due to the level of oppression present against women. A lot of Indian men do want to see more Indian porn stars flying the flag for their country.
