There was a phase in human history when there were no social rules or norms for forming sexual relationships between men and women. Sex was a means for procreation as well as pleasure, and no taboo of any sort existed. With the advancement of civilisation, relationships and social practices also transformed. 
 
This slideshow will tell you about the sexual norms mentioned in ancient Indian scriptures. These may come across as shocking, but should be understood in historical-sociological context. Read on...

In the times of Bajirao, a game 'Ghat Kanchuki' used to be played in Pune. Some books describe it as 'chakrapuja.' In this, equal number of men and women assembled secretly at night, without any consideration of caste or relationship, and sit around a paper on which a 'chakra' was drawn. After disrobing themselves, they put their clothes in a pot at centre. Then every person picked up a cloth at random to select his/her partner for the night. The game continued till everyone had slept with each other.
