“In this documentary, I want to show the world what it (sexuality) is and the variants it has. There will be no censorship. Each country is different and has its biggest secret and its most hypocritical side. What we are trying to do is just share the sexual secrets of each country," said Naranjo during a press conference.

The film, ‘Monica and Sex’ has yet to set its release date, although the singer-turned-showhost said her team of photographers is dedicated to delivering an educative experience to its international audiences.

"We have already recorded in different parts of the world, looking for the contrasts of sexuality. ... There is an international gap in the media on sexuality and education, I wanted to talk about sex freely and prepare young people on this issue — I will be the example,” she said.

"It will be a constructive program. We will teach everything we see and what they teach us in each nation,” she said.

Among her native communities, the singer was sure to include interviews from the Muxe (pronounced moo-shays) community in Istmo de Tehuantepec, Oaxaca, where a third gender is recognized and occupies a special place in the indigenous society. An assigned male at birth is essentially raised wearing female attire, however, they do not identify with either gender, or as homosexual, or transgender.

"It will be a constructive program. We will teach everything we see and what they teach us in each nation,” she said.

"I wanted to express myself as a woman and share it in this documentary. I met with my team to create a beautiful story and talk openly about sexuality. When a woman talks about it, it's not dirty, it's elegant," said Naranjo.
