Ask the Sexpert

A long time sex advice columnist gains popularity against the backdrop of a ban on comprehensive sex education in schools in several states in India.

Ask the Sexpert is a feature documentary centered on a highly popular sex column in a daily newspaper in India. Despite sex being a taboo topic in India, the column’s brand of non-moralistic advice and humor has emboldened many to write in with their questions. Highlighting a dance between desire and censorship, the personal narratives in the film play out against the backdrop of the heated debate over sexuality and sex education in India.
