An Indan wife has urged Bombay High Court to impose a porn ban. She explained how her husband’s addiction to pornographic websites ruined their marriage and sex life.

The 27-year-old submitted a petition, requesting the ban, on 9th February 2018. In this document, she outlined the impact of her 35-year-old partner’s obsession.

She claimed that her husband’s addiction began while as a teenager. However, she only discovered this after their marriage in 2016. The wife explained:

“I have found in my matrimonial home, old porn videos and CDs which my husband collected over the years and this exposes his fascination for hardcore porn and reflects his perverted lifestyle.”

The petition also details how the 35-year-old would spend large periods of time watching this explicit content. Blaming the internet for feeding his habit due to its accessibility, the woman adds:

“As a result he has fallen prey to the addiction and is always watching pornographic videos, films and pictures.”

She claims this has created a detrimental impact on their marriage, saying her husband cannot share a bed with her at night. Instead, he reportedly sleeps in his mother’s bedroom. Believing he feels “scared to initiate natural sexual intercourse”, the 27-year-old says her spouse suffers from a lack of vitality and virility.

The woman, hailing from Kolkata, also claims that her husband would inflict sexual and domestic abuse on her. She says in her petition:

“However my husband has at times forced me to have unnatural oral sex with him against my wishes. Thus he is exhibiting abnormal behaviour ruining my married life.”

Her husband also lost interest in work and would often ignore it, leading to the couple experiencing financial problems.

She concludes her petition by revealing that her partner now wants a divorce. He reportedly threw her out of their home, despite his wife’s wishes to stay together. She also added:

“He also communicated to me on WhatsApp that he hates sex with me and thus wants to get rid of me.”

The Kolkata woman has filed the petition in support of Kamlesh Vaswani, whose 2013 petition also urged for a porn ban in India. The lawyer demanded that the Supreme Court should block pornographic websites, in response to the 2012 Delhi gang rape.

Whilst the court did pass an interim order in 2015, blocking 857 websites, it was revoked just 5 days later.

In addition, this marks as the second petition submitted in by an Indian wife regarding porn addiction. In February 2017, a woman told the Supreme Court how her husband had developed an obsession with online porn.

She also detailed how this type of content is leading to a negative impact in the country. Indeed, various debates have arisen over the possible consequences of porn, with some believing it is a contributing factor to rape and sexual violence in India.

The Indian Government currently shows a proactive approach to tackle child pornography. Its Department of Telecommunications recently joined forces with Interpol to tackle the spread of such content.

The Supreme Court suggested this should expand to potentially banning porn being watched in public places. However, the Department has no plans to go beyond banning child pornography websites.

While the 27-year-old wife joins a long list of many wanting a change in the accessibility of porn, their hope for a ban may take time for any sort of fruition.
