Driver Advice

I had another interesting driver take me back to my hotel this evening. As I mentioned in a previous post, some of the most common questions you’re asked in India is “Are you married?” and “Do you have girlfriend?” Usually the conversation ends after that. This was not the case today.

My driver felt obligated to offer his thoughts on sex education. I was reminded to be responsible, which was a strangely nice thing to hear from a complete stranger. He said “You will enjoy. It’s good. But safety is very important.”

Then it got weird. The driver went on to say, “don’t get permanent girlfriend. You should try and sample many girls. But don’t go for the local cheap girls! You want the expensive girls. They will cost you, yes. But you will be safe.” It sort of sounded like he was encouraging me to find myself a classy prostitute.
