The Company of Women by Khuswant Singh presents sexual episodes of a man with number of women, ranging from an Afro-American lady to an ageing Pakistani woman to his own wife in India. The protagonist, Mohan Kumar, is a brilliant student and when he is sent to the USA for studies, there he starts his sex career by loosing virginity to Jessica Browne, a black lady. Soon he gets fame for having the seemingly largest organ in the campus, which gets him more women on bed. On one of his memorable rendezvous with Yasmeen Wanchoo, a Pakistani woman, he learns how to lucratively quench older women who presumably lust after fine young men.
As he doesn’t share good subaudition with his father, so upon returning India, he is nudged to tie a knot with a woman whom he neither likes nor he burns with desire for her. The lady in fact is grouchy with some unusual facial features. Despite marriage, his love for other women sees no decline; surely he feels no commitment towards his wife. Subsequently, their marriage ends on a bad note. Following divorce, he feels relieved but at the same time strokes of loneliness creeps back in his life to an extent that he maneuvers sexual romps with his maid, Dhanno, and the nurse of his son.
