I’ve just started on Christiane Amanpour: Sex & Love Around the World on Netflix, and I’m loving it! I’ve learnt so much, Christiane explores the culture of cities all over the world to understand how sex and love operate within it. It’s super interesting, I’ve seen the ‘Tokyo’ and ‘Delhi’ episodes so far. Has anyone else seen it? I’d be interested to hear from people who have lived outside of Australia so I can understand how Australian sex and love culture might be in comparison to others!
I’ve watched the ‘Tokyo’ episode with my girlfriend @sextronaut and it was so good!! I kind of knew about the sex side of their culture anyway so I wasn’t too shocked but my girlfriend was like, woah!! It’s definitely interesting seeing how diverse love and sex is displayed around the world!
@sextronaut Definitely worse! It seems people are more oppressed in terms of sexual exploration due to Western influences? Western sexualisation feels so prudish in comparison to some things shown in the show prior to colonisation. It’s kind of like erasing culturally significant expression/practices by enforcing a more Western-based view on sex and sexuality.
