High-Risk Behaviors Among Regular and Casual Female Sex Workers in Iran: A Report from Western Asia
Sex segregation in Iran - Wikipedia
I understand some countries in the Middle East have harsh laws forbidding premarital sex. Apparently it is punishable by a lengthy prison term in Dubai for instance--even for tourists. Is this an issue in Iran? I am not sure if I understand your question correctly but if you mean unmarried couple are allowed to share a room in a hotel, this is a bit complicated as for Iranian citizens in such a circumstance they are required by law to provide marriage certificate but I heard from different sources this regulation is being tolerated for tourists. Thanks for your reply. Actually what I had in mind is, I'll be touring with a group and some of the women will be single. If I hit it off with one of the women, is it a problem for her to visit or stay in my hotel room or me to visit or stay in hers?
