There Are No Real Virgins in Tehran

"Sexual Politics in Modern Iran" is a new book by Iranian author Janet Afary. This book "focuses on gender and sexuality and draws on her experience of growing up in Iran and her involvement with Iranian women of different ages and social strata. These observations, and a wealth of historical documents, form the kernel of this book, which charts the history of the nation’s sexual revolution from the nineteenth century to today."

Read this written dialogue between Janet Afary and Egyptian writer Nawal El Saadawi.
