Extreme Wives With Kate Humble
Friday 10 November, 9pm, BBC Two
We all know that, in other parts of the world, they do things differently. Kate Humble’s new series shows us just how eye-popping those differences can be! This opening episode could have been called, ‘My husband has extra wives – so do I, but I don’t have sex with mine’! Kate visits the Kuria tribe in Kenya, where they practise ‘nyumba mboke’ – wife-to-wife marriages, but without nooky. The wives do have sex, but not with each other. They take more than one male lover, who they can even have kids with. You have to admit, that’s different!
