While growing up, each and every child learns about the sex education either from his school or the internet world. Though the sex education which is conducted in the schools do not give much information and on the other side, several parents do not even talk about this with their children. In a country like India, we have yet not come to terms with topics like sexual repression, intercourse and find it a taboo. It’s high time, parents talk to their children and educate them about SEX. This will eventually remove several doubts which are built in their mindsets. But in today’s generation, children have free access to the internet and all the pornographic content which helps them to answer all their questions, instead of having an awkward discussion with parents about sex.
Well, CBFC Chief Pahlaj Nihalani has was in the news when he banned Lipstick Under My Burkha film, and now in Jab Harry Met Sejal, Nihlani’s concern was “Will you be comfortable using the word in front of your children?” He has always managed to escape from several situations and did not even answer to people’s question in the recent past. Within no time, his question caused a storm on social media and Nihalani declared that he received over lakh votes from people who would be comfortable with the word ‘intercourse’ in the film. He even said that he wanted votes only from married couples over 36 years of age.Here’s what he told to Mirror Now.
“You take voting from the public and I will clear the word (intercourse) on the promo and the film also. I want 1 lakh votes and I want to see that India has changed and Indian families want their 12-year-old kids to understand the meaning of this word (intercourse)… I’d accept votes only from people who are married and above the age of 36.” Within no time, Mirror Now conducted an online poll where more than 1.2 lakh people voted in favour of the word.
Recently a famous rapper and activist Sofia Ashraf gave a befitting reply to Nihlani’s questions. She tells parents to talk to their children about Intercourse. A video has been uploaded on YouTube named Adult Movie, wherein Sofia focuses on a particular age group of parents who should talk to their children about sexual intercourse. She even says that parents should talk openly instead of protecting them from this. This video has been all over the internet and was an answer to CBFC Chief Pahlaj Nihalani, who ordered to remove the word ‘intercourse’ from Jab Harry Met Sejal that featured Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma in the lead role. Sofia said, “Clearing things up is better than blurring things out!”

In the video, Sofia receives a package from a delivery man, but she does not have the sufficient amount of money to pay him. But when Sofia was about to strike a deal with the delivery guy and to hope to repay him in ways like ahem, another way, she even says online payment. She even goes on to inform her viewers and tells them, “What? Just because it’s an adult film doesn’t mean it’s a porno.”
After the question, Sofia even advises all the couples over the age of 36 years to not shy away from their kids and to openly talk about sex with them if they do not want to learn about it from the Internet, films or porn. Well, this video is an eye-opener to all those parents who do not talk to their children about sex. It’s better as parents you openly talk to your kids about sex and make them aware of things before it is too late.
