Different cultures have different codes of sexual expression and permissiveness. What happens to desis born into Indian families living in a more sexually liberal country?

In the first of two segments, we feature a video by Indian-origin YouTube star Superwoman (known to her parents as Lily Singh) from Canada, doing what she arguably does best – impersonating her parents’ prudish Indian ways, too alien to her Canadian identity, and yet all too familiar.

Watch as her parents hilariously squirm and wriggle through her not-so-innocent probing on: Where do babies come from?

(Our August 15th issue will feature the next segment.)


We curate videos and images based on our monthly theme, and credit and link back to their original source.
