Russia doesn’t exactly have the greatest reputation when it comes to sex and relationships. For a start, LGBT people do not seem to have the same rights as others, despite the fact that what happens behind closed doors between two consenting (same sex) adults was decriminalised in 1993. Gay men and lesbian women are just not accepted.
Russia is known as a pretty extreme place. After all, last year saw Russia repeatedly making the news for homophobic attacks, and there were many countries willing to shake a finger at Russia during the Winter Olympics. Every week, a new story comes out of Russia to make us stop and go “what?”.
