There WAS Sex In The Soviet Union (But Don’t Tell Anyone!)

Forget what you’ve heard, comrades! There WAS sex in the USSR, and sometimes quite a lot of it. From the revolutionary “free love” of the 1920s to the conservative crackdown under Stalin, and the late-era whispers of Glasnost, this video peels back the Iron Curtain on a world where romance, desire, and repression intertwined in unexpected ways. How did the Bolsheviks turn Tsarist Russia’s sexual norms upside down, legalizing abortion, divorce, and same-sex relationships (briefly)? Why was Stalin so conservative in his believes? How was the theme of carnal relations portrayed in Soviet cinema? Did Gorbachev’s reforms spark a sexual revolution, or were old habits hard to break? Let me tell you.

Hey there. Somehow you found my video and decided to watch it. So let me introduce myself. I’m Sergei and I’m from Russia. My channel is about my native country. I want to tell English-speaking viewers about the real Russia, about its past and present. Unfortunately, you can find a lot of propaganda about Russia on the Internet, both from the Russian media and from the Western ones. I want to tell you about Russia, as it really is, the country in which I was born, grew up, and lived all my life.
