Sex and the Citadel : intimate life in a changing Arab world by Shereen El-Feki( Book )

44 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As political change sweeps the streets and squares, parliaments and presidential palaces of the Arab world, journalist Shereen El Feki has long been looking at upheaval a little closer to home, in the sexual lives of men and women in Egypt and across the region. The result is an account of a highly sensitive, and still largely secret, aspect of Arab society. Sex is entwined in religion and tradition, politics and economics, gender and generations, so it makes a perfect lens for examining the region's complex social landscape. From pregnant virgins to desperate housewives, from fearless activists to religious firebrands, this book looks at the sexual history of the Arab region and brings new voices to the debate over its future. This is no peep show or academic treatise. It is a highly personal, often humorous, account of one woman's journey to better understand Arab society at its most intimate, and in the process, better understand her own origins. Rich with five years of research from Egypt to Saudi Arabia, Tunisia to Qatar, this book conveys a unique insight into everyday lives in a part of the world that is changing in front of our very eyes

The Institute of Sexology by Christopher Turner( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in Spanish and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A candid exploration of the most publicly discussed of private acts--sex--and those who have devoted their lives to studying it. Looking at key sexologists throughout history including Sigmund Freud, Marie Stopes, and Alfred Kinsey, this book investigates how sex research has shaped our current attitudes toward sexual behavior and identity. From anthropological surveys and questionnaires to ancient sex toys and machines, The Institute of Sexology presents fascinating findings alongside a wide range of rare documents, artworks, photographs, and erotica from the past. Spanning several centuries, the book delves deeply into sexual practices and conventions from all over the world at different time periods. From raunchy ancient carvings to 1920s erotic postcards, The Institute of Sexology proves that kink has been around for longer than you think. The book's compilation of sexually progressive memorabilia opens a visually stimulating discussion on the topics of sexual freedom and fetishism. Through their documentation of courtship rituals from faraway lands and their historical government-sponsored sexual questionnaires, sexologists encourage us to take a critical look at our approach to sexual practices. Sexologists have hugely influenced our attitude toward this most basic of subjects, yet The Institute of Sexology reminds us that while contemporary reservations on sexuality are being loosened, there were times in the past when sex and sexual identity were explored much more openly. Preconceived ideas are thrown out the window in this richly illustrated book that suggests our understanding of sex is in constant evolution. The Institute of Sexology highlights the profound effect that the gathering and analysis of information can have in changing attitudes and lifting taboos

The Arab Bed Spring? Sexual rights in troubled times across the Middle East and North Africa( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: In recent decades, attitudes in many parts of the Arab region have hardened towards non-conforming sexualities and gender roles, a shift fuelled in part by a rise in Islamic conservatism and exploited by authoritarian regimes. While political cultures have proved slow to change in the wake of the 'Arab Spring', a growing freedom of expression, and increasing activity by civil society, is opening space for discreet challenges to sexual taboos in a number of countries, part of wider debates over human rights and personal liberties in the emerging political and social order. Résumé: Ces dernières décennies, les attitudes dans de nombreuses parties de la région arabe se sont durcies à l'égard des sexualités et des rôles sexospécifiques non conformes, une évolution alimentée en partie par une montée du conservatisme islamique et exploitée par les régimes autoritaires. Si les cultures politiques ont été lentes à changer au lendemain du « printemps arabe », dans plusieurs pays, une plus grande liberté d'expression et une activité croissante de la société civile ouvrent l'espace pour une discrète remise en question des tabous sexuels, dans le cadre de débats plus larges sur les droits de l'homme et les libertés individuelles au sein de l'ordre politique et social émergent. Resumen: En décadas recientes, en muchas partes de la región árabe, se han endurecido las actitudes hacia sexualidades y roles de género no convencionales, un cambio impulsado en parte por un aumento en el conservatismo islámico y explotado por regímenes autoritarios. Mientras que las culturas políticas han resultado ser lentas en cambiar tras la 'Primavera árabe', la creciente libertad de expresión y creciente actividad por la sociedad civil están abriendo camino para retos discretos a los tabúes sexuales en varios países, parte de debates más amplios sobre los derechos humanos y libertades personales en el nuevo orden político y social
