Akash Mehta, one of India's finest and youngest comedians tells us why it's time for India to start talking about sex and stop treating it as a taboo topic of conversation. By inducing a lighter atmosphere through his humor, Akash makes it okay for the Indian masses to speak about a rather organic process with close to no discomfort at all.

Aakash Mehta is a singer-songwriter, scriptwriter, producer and stand-up comedian. And he does all this without being a star kid. It helps that he has issues and that he likes dealing with them on stage. A true student of the art, Aakash now relishes every mishap, misfortune and misadventure so that he can talk about it on stage.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
