Watch your favourite Bollywood celebrity, Vidya Balan, talk about the ‘Sex Taboo’:
Commenting on the video ‘Taboo’, Vidya Balan said, “It feels funny how inspite of being the most populated country in the world, we still don’t talk about sex openly. The idea of Sex is looked down by people because Indian culture wants us to be sexual only in the institution of marriage, for purposes of procreation. But the whole feeling, the joy of intimacy, pleasure and fun is missing. I therefore think it’s time to relook at our attitude towards Sex….We must strive for a traditional and yet modern balance for the hypocrisy related to sex to go away and our children to know that ‘Sex is a feeling, not a taboo’.”
