They’re an integral part of all of our lives, yet the treatment of love and sex can vary wildly between individuals, not to mention between cultures. In this series, we travel across the continents to discover the differing attitudes to love and sex.
In China, the one-child policy has led to a surplus of male singles, and a new market has spread up around dating, while in Japan, women are growing tired of waiting for a man, and choosing to marry themselves instead. In India, we hear the story of the country’s first openly – and illegally – gay prince, and witness huge and elaborate weddings. And in the USA, we meet the three-person polyamourous ‘thruple’ raising four children.
