Forbidden Love of Young Muslims
Young Muslim women are often forced to lead double lives in Europe. They have sex in public restrooms and stuff mobile phones in their bras to hide their secret existences from strict families. They are often forbidden from visiting gynecologists or receiving sex ed. In the worst cases, they undergo hymen reconstruction surgery, have late-term abortions or even commit suicide. Gülay has heard it from her mother so many times: An unmarried woman who has lost her virginity might as well be a whore. Hardly any other issue is as fraught with prohibition and fear among Germany's Muslim immigrants as sex.
