In this episode we discuss how the trauma of coming out led Leila to leave home at a young age, the fire under her arse that's driven her to burn bright on the UK comedy scene, having sex with men as a form of home-conversion therapy and why, as a gay, Iranian-Welsh woman in a deeply satisfying, long term relationship, she's done discussing the ins' and outs' of her sex life - except for when it comes to orgasms on this podcast. Thank goodness.
