The generation of today is surrounded by excessive usage of the internet, movies and TV series that teach us all that we need to know. 

Everything is just a click movie and I think we can all collectively agree on the fact that some movies have taught us more about sex education that our mom or anyone from our family for that matter, some of those films are as follows:

Lust Stories:

Lust Stories is the sequel to 2013 Bollywood movie Bombay Talkies. The series presents four short films by some of India’s best directors. 

The short stories consist of exploring love, sex and relationship in modern India. 

Trust us, it is definitely more sexually educational than your mom will ever be. 

The series openly talks about sex and relationships in India which is and can sometimes be a taboo amongst parents and it’s a rough topic to talk about with your elders. 

But the way this series openly talks about all these topics that are supposed to be a taboo is very helpful and shows like this teach the general public what people around them in their life are too afraid to talk about. 

Lipstick Under My Burkha:

Lipstick under My Burkha is a movie about four women who are sick and tired of the conservative lives that they have to live in, how their every move is controlled by their parents.

It is about how they indefinitely feel so trapped and feel like they cannot do anything about it. 

So these four women set out for a journey, to be independent, to stand on their own feet and to break free from the patriarchy and live on their own terms like powerful, successful women should be. 

A very inspiring film for all the girls in our generation. This was one of those movies that actually would keep you hooked. 

Pad Man:

Padman is a movie where a man discovers the struggle that women go through while going through their monthly cycles and he helps build a machine that provides sanitary pads to women in rural areas. 

It’s a shame how periods are considered such a taboo all over the world, this movie openly talks about them and how women are shunned everywhere when they’re on their period. 

Nobody understands the hardships and pain they have to go through during this time of the month but this movie openly talks about women’s struggles and how they should be provided with sanitary napkins and it should not be treated as such a luxury.

A man is brought in by a fertility doctor to donate sperm and he becomes one of the biggest donor for the company. 

The Quiet:

As long as you can ignore the obvious and pseudo-complex narration, The Quiet is actually a powerful movie about bystander intervention, trust and the adolescent confusion. 

Camilla Belle stars as Dot, a newly orphaned deaf-mute teenager who comes to live with her godparents and their daughter Nina (Elisha Cuthbert). 

She soon finds out about the incestuous relationship between Nina and her father. Watch out for all of the patriarchal moments that exacerbate Nina’s trauma and how the relationship changes between Nina and Dot.

HIDE AND SEEK is a daring exploration into wild, uncharted territory--lesbian adolescence in the 1960's. 

Lou is a 12-year-old girl who daydreams in a tree house, tries not to watch a sex education film, wins a rock throwing contest, and is horrified to discover that her best friend is taking an interest in earrings and boys. 

Interwoven with Lou's story are the mostly hilarious, sometimes painful recollections of adult lesbians who try to figure out how they ever got from there to here. 

Completing the picture are clips from a wide array of old scientific and educational films which blend seamlessly with the beautiful black and white images of Lou's world. 

HIDE AND SEEK is for every woman who's been to a slumber party and every man who wonders what went on at one.
