First Sex Ed Video in Iran Debuts
The Islamic Republic of Iran’s first-ever sex education video has been approved by both its ministries of Culture and Islamic Guidance and Health and Human Services, GlobalPost reports. The video illustrates the act of conception, discusses physical touching and features quotes attributed to the Prophet Muhammad about a married woman wearing perfume and makeup and presenting herself to her husband every morning and every night for sex—the video also instructs that the touching should be tender and according to the woman’s direction. The video, which uses simple and clear language to discuss sex, has been selling extremely well. Although sex is still taboo in Iran, the country has a long history of teaching its youth about sex ed and HIV prevention that encourages condom use.
