Sindoor triggers sex drive, woman says in viral video
Sindoor triggers a sex drive, a woman said in a viral social media video. Bizarre videos with more bizarre content have been a specialty offered on social media. Some content makes us laugh while others just make us raise our eyebrows and question “ideas” presented as fact.
The woman said so in an IG video posted by Be. Bodywise on Instagram. The video is no longer available on their feed although screenshots of the same have gone viral on Twitter. Netizens fired sarcasm in the comments section. Few others try to explain the fact that sindoor has been a misogynistic practice in our society.
Red powder, considered sacred by some, has been seen for generations as a sign of oppression. It generally marks marriage as the traditionalists’ idea of ”marking” a woman as their wife/property. The screenshot was shared by a Twitter user named Rohit. The clip was talking about the benefits of applying sindoor.
