Erotic Republic

Iran is in the throes of an unprecedented sexual revolution. Could it eventually shake the regime? asks Afshin Shahi.

When someone mentions Iran, what images leap into your mind? Ayatollahs, religious fanaticism, veiled women? How about sexual revolution? That’s right. Over the last 30 years, as the mainstream Western media has been preoccupied with the radical policies of the Islamic Republic, the country has undergone a fundamental social and cultural transformation.

    Teenage pregnancies are high in UK & other european countries but appear almost nil in Iran.
    In UK teenage girls are allowed to accept long duration contraceptive implants from their family physicians without the knowledge of their parents.
    Emergency (“morning after”)contraceptives are available ‘over the counter’.
    Thus teen pregnancy rates are declining.

      I think you ll be no longer fan of this site. Now it does not post news to satisfy you. You will have to change your name “Justice” to “Islamic Bias” like name.

      But don’t leave this. It will post something about Sri Lankan buddhists or Burmese when they will do something against You I mean halal like thing.

      Until that you can take a break and read about homosexual intercourse of
      fully covered Saudi babes.

    During the Golden Age of the Islamic Rule, people thrived in peace and prosperity. It was where extensive inventions and discoveries were made in science, technology, engineering, art, dialectic, literature, logic, mathematics, astronomy, religion and philosophy. It is believed that during this Age, people actually followed the guidance of Islamic Shariah and teachings of Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) thus having almost no obstacles leading to a period of development and progress.

        Maghribi;

        Now a days also, So called Arab Islamist are Having a golden and heavenly time,
        because of they have oil wealth. and enjoy with Slave trades, IMPORTING, young women slaves, WHOLESALE from poor countries.
        No VISA, BUT CHANGE THE NAME TO a MUSLIM AND GO TO MECCA For
        UM-RAH .
        from there, they are spirit away to other big cities in gulf as forced prostitutes.

        but 5 times praying, bear ed wearing and the Islamic Shariah guiding and following, Pakistanis, Bengalis, Indonesians ,Muslim Africans, Yemenis and Arab Maghreb Is, Never ever get any wealth or advantage from all those ALLAH’S money.

        MAFI MUKH ARAB MUSLIMS HAVE NO MERCY. FOR POORS.
        they TAKE THEIR SWEAT OUT AND THROW LIKE RUBBISH .

        I Read in News that expatriates have only two months to run away from SO CALLED GOD’S COUNTRY SAUDI ARABIA.

        NO OFFENCE to teachings of Prophet Muhammad,
        but I LOVE SHARIAH LAW.

        WANTS TO THROW STONES AT SINNERS IN MUSLIM WORLD.

        [there are no sinners in Muslim world,
        that is why, Muslim world is so peace full and indonesians stop sending Housemaids to Saudi Arabia and Sri lankan house maids have direct flights from Jails.].

          JULAMPITIYE AMARAYA – The obsession with the rest of the world is fruitless. Real men provide their women with all the necessities in life rather than sending them alone abroad to work as slaves. Be it in Lanka or in any other country.

          Mafi Mukh is Mahroof in this world. Brainless people are beyond borders. These parasites thrive on propaganda, self gratification, disrespect ones belief/faith and takes no effort to analyse events/situations before sifting the truth from falsehood.

          Can we see that legalising work permits offer expatriates labour/human rights and prevents abuse. This is a positive approach to justice and accountability.

          Throwing stones create more stones thrown at us. This present physical world focuses on material acquisition and outward results but in the spiritual world they focus on the inner cause and source of the results.

        Allah Subhanuwattalah created the world in seven periods – not days. Days on earth in 24 hrs, but days in another planet can be 500 earth hrs, and on and on.

        The misconception is because of the biblical quote.

    Every civilization in the world has contributed to the world in many ways. It has never been a one way traffic. If we can understand that bit, it will enhance the knowledge. Iran has one of the best cinema industry in the region. That shows the rich heritage they had and these things continue for generations.
    With malice towards none…

    Iran is Shia Muslim. Shia’s are considered infidels by Sunnis. That is why thousands of Sunnis from all over the world are doing jihad in Syria right now. But Islam is not native to Iran. It was Zoroastrian first. The Golden Age of Iran was before the Arabs invaded. So, it is very interesting that the most progressive “Muslim” nation in existance is the one that was not originally Muslim. :)

    On a personal note, I have worked with some Iranians. They are progressive and intelligent, not at all like the dumb Arabs who smoke cigarattes all and repeat the “Allahu Akbar” mantra.

      Yes and Iran is the only Muslim country who have at least some technology. All Arab countries have nothing than people with uncontrollable sex urges.

      Lester – Please Do Stop Torturing yourself with Muslims and Islam. It should not concern Non Muslim Lankans. Syrian conflict is pure geopolitics and the imminent theft of further natural resources in the region. The link below spells out the intentions for destroying the Iranian nation.
