91-year-old Indian sexpert, Dr. Mahinder Watsa, is popular for writing his column in the Mumbai Mirror. Below are the experts from her interview with Indian Today:
Women are shy
When I first started writing ‘Ask the Sexpert,’ almost none of the letters I received were from women. But now it’s around 30%. At the beginning, women weren’t so frank, but now they are expressing themselves in ways that they never used to. Women are becoming more open and saying, ‘Well if men can have fun, why can’t we also.
Need of sex education
There are many states in India which don’t have sex education in schools, so young people are left all on their own and there is a lot of confusion. In the beginning, people would get very upset when I put up a slide of a penis showing it diagrammatically. But then they started to get used to it.
Indian perceptions & taboos
A person asked me – “My family is demanding that I get married. How can I ascertain if the girl is a virgin?” To which I replied – “I suggest you don’t get married. Unless you appoint detectives, there is no way to find out. Spare any poor girl of your suspicious mind.”
Sometimes you have to be a little harsh in how you say it and make them feel a little angry with you. When they feel angry they start thinking and when they start thinking they start to improve.
Psst! We definitely need more sexperts like Dr. Watsa.
