“Indian culture wants people to be sexual only in the institution of marriage and for reproduction.”


Talking about India’s ironic situation, the actress further added:

“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.”

Vidya further expressed that making people aware and trying to change their perspective is a need today. It is important for people to understand and change their views towards sex.

We must strive for a traditional and yet modern balance, and (aim) for the hypocrisy related to sex to go away. Our children need to know that sex is a feeling, not a taboo.”


According to Vidya, the current thinking of people about sex “takes away the joy of intimacy”.
