Persian men culture towards dating women

Before then, religion and tradition governed all such relationships and there was no question of males and females openly dating or socializing with such intentions.Veiling kept women at home and they became totally inaccessible to other males.Hadith and other religious literature are full of recommendations about such matters and condemn any deviations.

Naser Khosro mentions that in the city of Tabas, the local governor would execute any unrelated male and female caught talking to each other.The erotic illustrated books or the so called 'pillow books' such as The Perfumed Garden (16th century Tunis) provided guidance for the males and instructed them on various ways of lovemaking and how to get optimum satisfaction.Despite availability of concubines and polygamy (slaves & war captives in remoter times), prostitution always existed.The western countries like England fueling their ideas and motivating them to change were also traditionalist with such matters.Victorian morality and conservative codes of ethic and behavior ruled firmly and was observed by most Europeans at the time.
