    • Synopsis
    • Although India produced the Kama Sutra, its mainstream culture is sexually conservative and pornography is taboo. Women in India are still not recognised as sexual, economic or cultural equals to men. Yet a number of Indian women are rising stars in the international porn industry. Sunny Leone is regarded as the biggest Indian porn star in the world and also is establishing a career in mainstream Bollywood. How do Sunny Leone and other Indian porn stars reconcile their provocative work to the traditional values espoused by their families and their culture? Are Indian porn stars pioneers in the new wave Diaspora generation taking control of their identities, choices and sexuality/sexual freedoms? What does this say about the changing attitudes emerging in India towards pornography and the sexual freedoms of women?
