Saudi Arabia is the sixth-largest consumer of Viagra in the world, and people in Arab countries spend billions annually on sex-enhancing drugs. Worldview talks with Dr. Sara Nasserzadeh, sex therapist and chairperson for the Middle Eastern Sexual Health Committee at the World Association for Sexual Health, about the West's misconceptions of Muslim sexuality. Also, Worldview talks with Amir, author of Zahra’s Paradise. The best-selling graphic novel explores the brutal repression of Iran's post-2009 election protests.
