A documentary by Vaishali Sinha

Late-comers will not be admitted after 8pm.

Join us on 7 August 2019 for the screening of Ask the Sexpert, followed by a post-screening discussion with Tan Joo Hymn from AWARE.

Ask the Sexpert is a documentary about Dr. Mahinder Watsa, a popular 93-year-old sex advice columnist for a daily newspaper in Mumbai. Despite sex being a taboo topic in India, the column’s brand of non-moralistic advice and humour has emboldened many readers to write in with their questions. The column is very popular even while there is a ban on comprehensive sex education in schools in approximately a third of Indian states.

About the Speaker
Joo Hymn is the Coordinator for Community Engagement Workshops at AWARE. She is responsible for the Birds & Bees workshop for parents on starting meaningful conversations with children about relationships and sex. She also coordinates workshops for youths on topics such as consent, healthy relationships, peer support and comprehensive sexuality education.
