Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh, who emerged as a sex icon with his bold condom ad campaign "Do the Rex", says sex is natural and it's time to bring it out of the bedroom.
"Sex is a beautiful and perfectly natural phenomenon. Everyone
does it and by no means is it a bad or evil thing. So, there's
really no reason to be cagey about it," he said.
"The facilitation of an open and healthy discussion about sex
amongst young people is important to combat the repressed status of
sex in India," Ranveer said in a statement.
Meanwhile Ranveer feels it's the ignorance towards the issue
that is cropping up problems amongst youngsters and says it's silly
that we still shy away from talking about how we came into
"The attitude towards sex in India is one such matter that needs
to be brought to the fore and addressed. The trivialisation of sex
in the country is rampant. People discreetly make jokes about it
all the time but when the time comes to talk about it openly they
don't. As such, the hypocrisy surrounding sex in India is
widespread. For a large section of the people it's still treated as
a taboo subject," he said.
The actor, who has done bold scenes in movies like Goliyon
Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela and Band Baaja Baaraat, has
collaborated with MTV and Durex, a condom selling brand, to create
a web show called "Durex MTV Rex Talk" to promote sex-awareness
The show will go live Monday, on the occasion of World AIDS Day.
The actor has also shot a video, released Sunday, with a message
'Let's talk about sex' to promote the message.
Meanwhile, after Kill Dil failure, the actor is looking
forward to Bajirao Mastani.
