In the Middle East, sex is a necessary and integral part of marriage.

Here in the U.S., sex is a common topic in media and in everyday conversation. But in parts of the Middle East, sex is talked about in very different ways. These differences have led to some misconceptions in the West about how sexuality is expressed in predominantly Muslim countries.
