'Important, brave and necessary' Naomi Wolf

As political change sweeps the streets and squares, parliaments and presidential palaces of the Arab world, Shereen El Feki has 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 informative, insightful and engaging 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 the perfect lens for examining the region's complex social landscape. From pregnant virgins to desperate housewives, from fearless activists to religious firebrands, Sex and the Citadel takes a fresh look 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. Sex and the Citadel 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 groundbreaking research from Egypt to Saudi Arabia, Tunisia to Qatar, Sex and the Citadel gives us unique and timely insight into everyday lives in a part of the world that is changing in front of our very eyes.

Good informative read

 on 26 July 2013
By Ms C Long
This book has certainly given me food for thought and provoked thinking. So refreshing to get an unbiased, honest and knowledgeable read with real points of view and life experience on points of which people would otherwise be oblivious or try to ignore.

A unique book

 on 16 November 2015
By CHRISTODOULOS
A fairly extensive review of attitudes toward sex, divorce and related values in the Arab world and especially in Egypt. Altough I found the book unique in its subject matter and very interesting it could be considerably shorter. A very interesting read for people who wish to understand the Arab and especially Muslim attitudes in this matter.

Interesting Perspective

A really useful and eye-opening insight into the minds of (mainly) younger Arabs, seen through the prism of Shereen El Feki’s study of sex and sexuality in the Arab world.
