Desilicious: Sexy. Subversive. South Asian written by Masala Trois Collective


Desilicious: Sexy. Subversive. South Asian written by Masala Trois Collective


“Desi” is a Punjabi term referring to “of one’s own people.” Desilicious is a wide-ranging compilation of literature about sex and sexuality by writers of South Asian descent—a medley of arousing and thematically innovative fiction, poetry, and essays, spiced for mature appetites only. The flavors of these works, by both men and women, run deep, and vary from suggestive to salacious, risque to ribald.

The collection explores the relationship between sensuality and culture, and how they can both complement and conflict with each other. They challenge colonial stereotypes of South Asian sexuality, represented by sexually repressed victims of arranged marriages or hypersexed inheritors of the Kama Sutra; they also explode existing notions of cultural “norms.”

Subversive, seductive and alluring, Desilicious will take you on a carnal journey of limitless possibilities.

Contributors include: Tanuja Desai Hidier, Sandip Roy, Rajinderpal S. Pal, Roohi Choudhry, Neelanjana Banerjee, and many more.

Deborah Barretto, Gurbir Singh Jolly, and Zenia B. Wadhwani are the founders of The Masala Trois Collective, a group that aims to confront stereotypes about South Asian sexuality, challenge taboos and test boundaries, and turn on readers. They live in Toronto.


An anthology of stereotype-challenging fiction and poetry about sexuality and culture from South Asian writers.
