As a 30-year-old adult, I've learned to be more open in talking about sex. But that doesn't mean that every time the topic comes up there isn't a young-Muslim version of me in the back of my head that feels awkward and guilty about broaching the subject.
Of course, I know why that is: I was raised my entire life to think that sex is a taboo subject. I don't remember ever discussing it with my parents. My father gets extremely uncomfortable whenever the word is even uttered in his house.
Let's be real: although sex is a huge part of our everyday lives, it's still weird whenever people talk about it, especially on camera.
