Arab Movies and Sex

Sex arabic movies

One of the first Arab sex movies to reference sex was Qoubla fil Sahra, directed by Ibrahim Lama. The protagonist, played by Badr Lama, saves a foreign girl, Hilda, and has an orgie while trying to prove he did not kill his uncle. The film crosses many red lines, featuring extended orgy scenes, yashmak veil, and long kisses.

Egypt’s Interior Ministry banned the film “Masat al-Hayah” in 1929, which starred the famous belly dancer Efranz Hanem. At the time, sex work was not prohibited, but the Interior Ministry tried to ban the film. The Interior Ministry’s decision did not affect other Arab films, but it did lead to the banning of some. In spite of its controversial content, Arab films have continued to depict sex in a variety of contexts and have affected the sexual consciousness of millions of viewers.
