Not only do these girls have any qualms about speaking on a such a subject, they also come out and share their experiences

In a conservative country like India, sex is a taboo and you hardly see men, leave girls, come out in the open and talk about it.

However, this powerful video made by So Effin Gray shows a bunch of Mumbai college girls who don't bat an eyelid before talking about the most feared word in India- "sex".  Not only do these girls have any qualms about speaking on a such a subject, they also come out and share their experiences and tell us how they felt when they had sex for the first time.

This video once again brings the sensitive topic of sex education in India and why we must teach our kids to take sex as a natural act and not something that shouldn't be talked about in the open.

Sex education for youngsters should be much more than just about pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases and phychologists feel that the more they know about it the better it is for kids.

"Sex education is the need of the hour. In a globalised world, sex education becomes even more important and can't be excluded from school education, " says Dr Harish Shetty, consultant psychiatrist at Dr LH Hiranandani Hospital, Powai in a news report.

Dr Seema Hingoranny, child psychologist says that kids get into trouble as they don't have enough information and that sex education is not only limited to the organs of reproduction.

"We get many cases of teenagers, who pick up wrong information from the internet and get themselves into trouble. This happens because there is no one to give them proper education. Sex education is not only limited to the organs of reproduction. It is to teach a difference between a good touch and bad touch. By not providing children with sex education, we make them prone to molestation etc. Putting a total ban on sex education will be detrimental to mental health of children," she adds.

We totally agree with that and feel that kids, especially girls should be encouraged to talk openly about sex so that they know what they're getting into.
