Whether you’re looking for a new genre to try or a good excuse to watch a raunchy film, Arab cinema has always been a place for sex. It has presented sex in various contexts and released countless fantasies and desires that have shaped the sexual consciousness of millions of viewers. Here’s a rundown of some of the best Arab films with sex scenes.
Netflix has stepped in to show non-Arabic gay content. Although most Middle Eastern cinemas are forbidden from showing nudity, Netflix shows gay movies. Egypt is especially taboo when it comes to exposing oneself to gay content, according to Pew Research Center. But while a majority of Egyptians say they are not afraid to show their bodies, homosexuality is especially taboo. In a survey, 95% of Egyptians said they were against gay and lesbian movies. And even more Egyptians are still hesitant to talk about their feelings about homosexuality.
