It seems that our government believes that India, the second most populated country in the world, needs no sex education. The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting has announced that it won’t let you watch condom ads on television during ‘prime time’ because the children will get exposed to the “indecent and inappropriate” content. Yes. We are talking about a country with 1.3 billion population in 2017.

The decision was taken after the Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI) sought the ministry’s suggestions, reportedly after receiving a number of complaints from viewers. The ASCI received letters saying that the content of the advertisements of condoms was meant for adults and should not be aired during prime time.

So, what is our sanskaari Ministry of Information and Broadcasting’s problem? They are on a mission to save our kids' minds from inappropriate content. Okay, in that case, why do we have advertisements (Not condom) that have sexual undertones?

Well, here are some ads that have already corrupted us over the years. And mind you, the following ads using sexual innuendos to get their products sold have NOTHING to do with sex.

1) Slice

You'll want to grab a mango after this crash course by Katrina Kaif on Aamsutra.



2) Axe

Spray a lot of deodorant on your body and girls from all over the city would be chasing you.



3) Amul Macho

Yeh toh bada toing hai. #YouRemember



4) Dollar Club

Akshay Kumar has something important to say to this fine lady.



5) JK Cement

Did you ever expect a cement ad to make it to this list?



6) Parachute body lotion

Thandi thandi.



7) Moov

Aah se aaha tak.



8) Zatak

Just Zatak her.



9) Wildstone

What's in these deos, man?



10) V-Guard inverter/UPS

Don't ask. Just watch.



11) Aqua White toothpaste

Kaafi corrupted.



12) Zatak talc

Didn't see that coming.



13) Macroman

Condom ads, learn something.



14) Hanes undergarments

No itchy tags.



15) No smoking ad

Sunny Leone, Alok Nath, and Deepak Dobriyal team up to give you an important message.
