About us

Love Matters: blush-free information and news on love, sex & relationships for young adults around the world.

Open, honest, sex-friendly...
Love Matters is a place to talk about sex with an open, honest, and non-judgmental attitude. At the same time, we do our best to produce content that doesn’t offend people and that fits in with culture where you live.

And safe.
We see sex as a wonderful thing to explore, share, and enjoy. And we think that if you provide young people with honest and positive information and news on sex, they’ll be more likely to have safer, healthier sex.

We love to know what’s on your mind! So go on, make our day: contact us with your story or your question for Auntyji. Or join in and have your say on Facebook. The more we know what moves you, the more we can make Love Matters specially for you.

So who are we actually? Meet the Love Matters India team.
