The sex talk was very frustrating. During the discussion period, the audience talked about everything but women’s sexuality. They analyzed and discussed the relationship between women’s sexuality and imperialism, colonialism, post-colonial theory, modernism, post-modernism, power, economy, politics, religion, moral values, and freedom. Except that people started an argument saying that “women’s sexuality is very complicated for example yadah yadah yadah…imperialism.”
Everyone was talking about every single “ism” they knew of to avoid speaking of the vagina, virginity, sex, sexual positions, oral sex, anal sex, pleasure, and having a good time in general.
Iranian women’s sexuality is certainly a taboo, one cannot talk about it.
