Ask the Sexpert

November 03 2018

Eventbrite - Ask the Sexpert

Bay Area Premier

Followed by Skype Q&A with the filmmaker!

Entertaining, insightful, and with a wry sense of humor, Ask the Sexpert is a feature-length documentary about a highly popular 93-year-old sex advice columnist for a daily newspaper in Mumbai. Dr. Mahinder Watsa has no time to mince his words: “Why not try masturbation, after all, it’s harmless,” he advises one correspondent.

The column’s brand of advice and humor also addresses topics like gender equality and sexual pleasure in non-moralistic terms. The need for honest and factual discussion about sex leads him to answer hundreds of emails, and even counsel couples and strangers who arrive at his home unannounced.

However, Dr. Watsa’s lifelong commitment to sex education has made him a willing combatant against the conservative elements of Indian society that see his work as immoral. With charm and joy, Ask The Sexpert champions the power of knowledge over ignorance.

“As Vaishali Sinha’s (Made In India) camera cuts to a cheeky shot of fruit and veg in a local market, there’s a sense that Ask The Sexpert is going to be an entertaining film.”
