Talking about sex in Indonesia

Podcast to debunk relationship myths launched by the only licensed female sex therapist in nation of 250 million people.

    In a country of 230 million people, Zoya Amirin claims to be Indonesia's only qualified sexual psychologist.

    To make Indonesians more open-minded about sex and to help prevent the more than two million abortions a year, she created a podcast called "In Bed with Zoya" on her website with advice about sex.

    Indonesia's highest Muslim council agrees with sex education but in a limited form.

    Asrorun Niam Sholeh, from the Muslim council, says: "The urgency and relevance of sex education is to show that humans are different from animals.

    "It is very simplistic and it lowers our dignity if sex education is only about a sexual relationship without teaching morals."
