About Section 377

What is it?

Sec 377 of the Indian Penal code makes carnal intercourse, or any non-procreative sexual act between a man and a woman illegal, punishable with up to 10 years in jail and/or a fine. Basically, if you’re gay and having sex, you’re most likely violating Section 377!

How does it affect me as a gay man/woman and why should I care?

Since the LGBT can only indulge in sexual acts that are not peno-vaginal, this section directly affects them. As LGBT, this section denies you the rights that straight people have (freedom of choice) and forms the basis for several other forms of discrimination against you.

What is 'carnal intercourse' mentioned in Section 377?

Carnal intercourse is defined as any sexual act that is not procreative (penis entering the vagina). This includes acts that both homosexual and hetersexuals indulge in, like oral and anal sex, masturbation etc.

Does Section 377 also apply to Heterosexuals?

Yes, anyone indulging in non-procreative sex can be punished under this section. So if your straight friends enjoy a little oral, they’re probably as criminal as you are ;)
