Sexual mores in Georgia and Denmark

Pascale Harter presents personal insights, wit and analysis from BBC correspondents around the world. In this edition, two tales exploring sexual norms and freedoms. In Georgia, activists gathered to mark the International Day Against Homophobia recently - but Damian McGuinness watched the event turn into a huge anti-gay fracas. Why this resurgence of prejudice - and does the increasing clout of the Georgian Orthodox Church have anything to do with it? Denmark is usually considered a bastion of gender equality and frankness about sex ... but some men argue they've been emasculated and silenced by feminism. Yet Danish TV has recently given airtime to a chat show consisting of two (clothed) men talking about naked women. Emma Jane Kirby meets the programme's host and explores the male gaze - and male desires.
