In Mumbai, despite taboos, columnist Dr. Watsa gives frank and popular sex advice – and he is 93 years old.

Ask the Sexpert examines the popularity of 93-year-old sex advice columnist, Dr. Watsa, a fixture on page 34 of the Mumbai Mirror. Despite sex being a taboo topic in the country, the column’s brand of non-moralistic advice and humour has emboldened many to write in with their questions, the vast majority of whom seek basic information. The columnist gains popularity even while a ban on comprehensive sex education in schools is adopted by approximately one third of India’s states.
