Sexual traditions in Arab countries differ from that of the people living in western countries. It has been found that this difference has something to do with the social and cultural norms prevailing in these countries. The differences in the sexual practices between Arab men and women were due to the different moral standards prevailing in these Arab societies. Some of the major differences between the two are discussed below:

Most of the Arab men and women believe in their right to choose what partner they want to have sex with. Some of them are even ready to undergo medical tests in order to ascertain whether they will or not to have premarital sex. Some of them are even ready to undergo expensive surgery in order to get the genitalia of their choice. On the other hand, there are also some of them who consider it dishonoury to belong to a polygamous marriage.

A man’s spermatozoa cannot survive in a female uterus and so women hold the power in this aspect. They decide whether or not they want to have a child and so they use specific herbs like Black Cohosh and Red Sage to enhance their sexual desire. Sexual traditions in Arab countries have undergone a tremendous change over the period of time and many of the old customs have been discarded along with the times. However, there are still some practices that remain which are not accepted in today’s society and that includes the practice of female infanticide.Read more about Arab sex on popular sex portal
