From the erotic adventures of “Thousand and One Nights” to the debates after the Cologne New Year’s Eve: The sexuality of “oriental” men, women and queers is fetishized again and again. In this book, Mohamed Amjahid wants to take a look into the bedrooms of North Africa and clear up clichés and racist stereotypes. Based on his own experiences and those of his friends and relatives, he tells us in a touching, funny, intimate and honest way what the everyday sexuality of North Africans is really like and what longings lie behind it.
