Sex Culture in Arab Countries

Sex culture in Arab countries

Despite political unrest and street protests, the unethical practice of sex is still on the rise in the Arab world. Sex workers are booming, and the plight of the femen remains unresolved. What is the relationship between research and practice, and what should policy and practice look like? We discuss the challenges and opportunities for women and men in this region.

Unprotected sex is increasing in Arab countries

The Arab world is one of the most uneducated areas in the world, but that does not mean that سكس life is any less prevalent. According to Shereen El Feki, a Canadian-Egyptian immunologist and award-winning journalist, unprotected sex is on the rise in the region. Despite this, the Arab world remains a terra incognito for scientists and policymakers. This book offers a window into contemporary sex life in this region.

Sex workers are booming business in the region

After the war in Iraq, Syria is now home to a thriving brothel industry and dozens of girls dressed in tight jeans, low-cut tops and knee-high boots dance outside the capital, Damascus. The make-up cannot hide the fact that these girls are in their mid-teens. Sex workers are making good money, and the war in Iraq is fueling this business.

Femen is a non-starter

The phrase 'Femen is a non-starter in Arabic sexual culture' is a contradiction in terms. While the term refers to fictional characters in the Dune universe, feminism in the Arab world is a non-starter. Women are often marginalized in society, and FEMEN calls for "topless jihad" and other onerous laws aimed at religious minorities.

Disconnect between policy, research, and practice

There is a fundamental disconnect between policy-makers' rhetoric and their actions, which must be explained in order to counteract Western instrumentalism and cynicism. One explanation is the claim that the Arab uprisings have been defeated, but this is not a satisfactory argument given the reality of the situation. Instead, the uprisings have given rise to new configurations of donors and relationships with fresh actors. It has also brought about new winners and losers, new regional powers, and a range of challenges to Western interests.

Women's rights

In recent years, Arab countries have seen a new wave of female activism. Despite conservative backlashes, a number of young activists have seized the opportunity to speak out and push for change. Social media is helping these activists take their message to new heights. They're redefining roles, relationships, and rights for women in Arab countries. They're also challenging traditional attitudes to the role of women in society.


The feminist experience in the Arab world cannot be characterized as simply an imported idea. It is an authentic experience that challenges a conservative patriarchal society and the Western Orientalist view that holds that women are always marginalized in Muslim-majority societies. For example, the media often depicts Arab women as oppressed, submissive, and victims of their circumstances. This portrayal ignores the plight of Arab women and their struggle to overcome sexism.

Medical myths

One of the most prevalent misconceptions about Arab men is that they aren't willing to seek treatment for sexual dysfunction. Although accurate statistics are lacking, there are several examples of men who seek treatment for their erection problems. Among these men is Gamal Farweiz, a psychiatric consultant at military hospitals in Egypt. He notes that people avoid seeking treatment because of the stigma associated with sexual dysfunction and the popular belief in sorcery and myths. Some people attempt to hide their erectile dysfunction by explaining that it is a vex placed upon them by the gods or witch doctors, while others seek out medical treatment from religious figures or witch doctors. In fact, most Arab men try to find a cure for sexual dysfunction through non-prescription performance enhancers or traditional brews.

Feminism in the Middle East

Feminism in these countries is often a political and revolutionary project that must navigate a minefield of conflicting interests.
