The passing of Dr. Mahinder Watsa, one of India’s most famous sexperts at the age of 96, has us looking back at his Netflix documentary titled Ask the Sexpert. Made over a span of 4 years, this 2018 documentary captures the true essence of Dr. Mahinder, who singlehandedly changed how Indians discuss sex. 

With his column of over 10 years in Mumbai Mirror, he gave advice to married men who were smokers and whose wives didn’t want anything to do with them but instead picked a ‘raw mango’. And taught virgins the art of foreplay with his witty replies that became the talk of Mumbai. After being a sex-expert for 40 years and writing the Dear Doctor column, popularity came to Dr. Mahinder as his column boomed in his 41st year as a professional. 

There’s something non-threatening about discussing sex with a 92-year-old.
