What it’s about:

The seasoned war correspondent and anchor Christiane Amanpour travels the world to investigate the cultural differences and shifting landscapes around sexual pleasure, intimate relationships, consent, and love, interviewing men and women in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.

Why it’s worth your time:

From Alexandra Katehakis, Ph.D., MFT, Certified Sex Therapist and Clinical Director of the Center for Healthy Sex:

“Christina Amanpour’s ‘Sex and Love Around the World’ is a fun and fascinating look at cross-cultural sexual mores. She interviews real people from Japan, to Beirut, to Ghana, Berlin, and more where we learn how different people view sex​. We see how ideas about penetrative sex as a goal, beauty, what’s considered “sexy,” and sex itself are wide and varied from culture to culture.

“Without giving too much away, the series explores topics that range from how the Japanese are moving more and more toward sexlessness and don’t have a word for ‘love’ as we know it, while the German episode starts with a shibari rope typing course.”

The takeaway:

Sex and Love Around the World will enlighten as it takes you on a vicarious culture trip to six different cities around the world. It will stimulate your mind…and possibly much more.

Watch it with:

“The series is definitely a conversation starter, one that couples and friends alike can watch together for fun and thought-provoking ideas,” says Dr. Katehakis, who is also the author of Mirror of Intimacy and hosts podcasts and webinars on her YouTube channel.
