The topic of sex is complicated, especially in the United States. With the current debate on birth control and the conflicting requirements for sexual education, sex is becoming overwhelmingly controversial and problematic. Trump has recently rolled back the mandate on birth control coverage and sex Ed is only required in 24 states. Meanwhile, Iceland’s sex culture is more casual and laid-back. Hear an interview with Icelandic Sexologist and Sex  Therapist, Aslaug Kristjansdottir and Icelandic Sexologist and Sex Education expert, Sigga Dogg  below.
