Love and sex are both very natural things that need to be talked about more often, but unfortunately – especially here in Egypt – it’s not. Lack of sex ed and just general knowledge about very simple and juvenile things about these topics have been tossed around for ages and information has been “altered” to fit the likings of people (read: our uneducated ancestors). If you want to brush up on some educational and correct information about love and have all your sex questions answered educationally but also without being boring, than here are some podcasts you might want to check out:
