Anonymised transcript of an interview with Maria, who moved to London from Spain at age 17 to learn English and gain some independence. The sex education she received at her Spanish secondary school was comprehensive and well-rounded, taught by an openly gay male teacher. Her AIDS education has mostly come through the media, and through the gay community in Barcelona. Maria has had a few sexual relationships, but has been disappointed with a lack of communication between her and her partners. She has some interesting thoughts on gender and sexual pleasure, as well as cultural differences she's noticed surrounding sexuality more widely. Maria isn't too keen on the idea of marriage in the future, but would like one daughter.
