So we ask Dr Kedar Tilwe, Consultant Psychiatrist, Sexologist, Department Of Mental Health And Behavioural Sciences, Hiranandani Hospital, Vashi to bust 3 sex-myths about having sex with someone who is thin!

' Sex life is a very broad term. However, it is quite possible for thin people to have a healthy and fulfilling sex life. Undernourishment can lead to physical weakness; which can have bearing on a persons ability to have sex,' said Dr Tilwe.
