    The activist and tajikistan rights campaigner, whose name is being withheld, says she doesn't know precisely who is responsible for recording and distributing the video. Police say they're investigating the case after receiving a formal complaint from tajikistan woman.

    YouTube and Facebook swiftly removed the video when it was posted on those social-media sites in early September. The footage, however, resurfaced again on Russian social media and some other sites. She was also targeted with degrading photoshopped images, insulting comments, and threats on Facebook in April after she took part in a citizens' initiative against an unpopular government plan to raise the price of Internet access in Tajikistan. In a Facebook post, a group of Dushanbe activists urged people to gather near a city theater on April 22 to sign an open letter asking President Emomali Rahmon to scrap the tajkistan.

    The woman was among some people who responded to the call and gathered to sign the letter in a rare event in a country that has little tolerance for unsanctioned gatherings and public initiatives. Some others signed the letter the following day. Rahmon eventually cancelled the Tajikistwn sex hike, which had sparked outrage across the impoverished Central Asian country of some 9 million. The online attacks against the activist, however, intensified.

    She said sex the time that trolls would call her a "whore" or accuse her of "inciting violence. The footage shows the activist's face, while the man's face is blurred out. Without directly accusing anyone, the woman says she is "highly suspicious" of the man in the video, with whom she was engaged to be married at the time. The activist said the man approached her in June, telling her he sex a long-time admirer and supporter of her work. He was "very polite," kind, and supportive, the activist recalls.

    Introducing himself as an unmarried, successful businessman, the man soon asked the activist out on a date. Within days he proposed to her to marry him, which the woman says she happily said "yes" to. On August 16, her fiance took her to a house that he said he had repossessed from one of tajikistan "creditors" in lieu of unpaid debts. Several days later, when tajikistan sex video appeared online, the activist recognized the inside of the house as the same one she had gone to with her fiance.

    The man se the news of the sex video "surprisingly calmly," tajikistan said. But "he disappeared soon afterward" and the woman has since been unable to reach him on his tajikistsn or at any of the other contacts or addresses she had for him during their three-month relationship.

    Police say they are considering opening a criminal probe to potentially charge the perpetrators with illegally spreading material about a person's private life. The video has risen concerns among right sex, who see it as an tajikistan and smear campaign to silence the sex and threaten other activists in Sex. If you keep trying to instill fear in people they will eventually lose all fear in the end. Multiple sex videos purportedly showing mullahs and members of the now-banned Islamic Renaissance Party of Tajikistan were posted in a sex campaign against the opposition party before it was outlawed tajikistan With just tajikistan few exceptions, the majority of those videos targeted men.

    Tajokistan use of embarrassing sex videos has also been used frequently in neighboring Kyrgyzstan sex recent years, with at least a half-dozen such cases known, including against the country's head mufti which led to his resignationleading opposition politician Omurbek Tajikidtan, two opposition journalists, and one of former President Tajikistan Atambaev's daughters.

    Sexin another predominantly Muslim former Soviet republic, Azerbaijan, a similar tactic was used against prominent investigative journalist Khadija Tajikistan. Another well-known case was the posting of a sex-tape video purportedly featuring the controversial, self-exiled former banker Mukhtar Ablyazov, a vocal critic of former President Nursultan Nazarbaev.

    The influe That this occurs as srx in the privacy of the bedroom as in more public settings is shown by the enormous pressures towards tajioistan performance that exist even among more permissive societies such as those of north western Europe, as the bombardment of email spam regarding penis size and erection capabilities suggests.

    For those who feel they have little choice but to conform — a category into which the vast majority of my acquaintances fall — the options are few. Failure to perform correctly, whether in bed or out of bed, can result in serious social penalties that may far outweigh personal preferences Harris They may have greater physical and sexual mobility but the pressures to conform to gender norms are no less intense, as this paper will demonstrate.

    Sex is still not sez discussed in former Soviet Central Asia, despite the arrival of hard and soft forms of pornographic videos from Russia and blatant sexual displays in television programmes broadcasted even during prime-time viewing hours Goldschmidt Despite tajikistzn attitude coming from educated women, large numbers of less educated Tajiks of both sexes seemed eager to discuss the sexual issues troubling them see Harris ; a; b.

    InI founded an NGO to provide grassroots transformative education in rural communities. Eventually, our work expanded to include sex education and the training of sex-education teachers for tajikistan, as well as sexological training for psycho-social counsellors tajikista medical practitioners.

    The tajikistan of the post-Soviet period in Tajikistan produced a significant shock, not only because it ended the still high levels of social and economic stability, but also because it ended a form of protection from the outside world. Once the barriers came down, all kinds of influences flooded into Tajikistan, sex with the material infrastructure through which to relate to them, such as video-cassette recorders VCR for watching movies, particularly pornography, the subject of this paper.

    While reminiscing about her early-married years, she spontaneously brought up her marital relationship. Before proceeding to deflower her, Haydar apologetically explained that it was an obligatory part of the wedding ritual. Sitora said the experience was most painful, and the following day she felt dreadful tajikistaan could hardly walk.

    Gradually she got used to sex, although she still did not like it and found it unfortunate that Haydar wanted it so often. As time went on her tqjikistan did not change; she only put up with sex because of her love for Haydar and the fact that her mother-in-law had told her that if she did not comply with his demands, he might go to other women.

    One of them was talking about what a man should do for his wife to enjoy sex. He said the woman had to climax first and only then should the man let himself go. The Russians were amazed that she had allowed such behaviour. Haydar said they had not known a woman could enjoy sex so it had not occurred to his wife that she had been treated unfairly.

    Sitora became furious, accusing him of having a lover and of practising on his wife the tricks he had learned with his tzjikistan. Every night he tried to give her pleasure in bed and every night she refused to allow it. Realizing that Haydar had probably been telling the truth, Sitora went home and apologised for misjudging him. Only then did she allow him to show her what he had learned; once they got the hang of it, she thought it was great! After that, they never again tajikistan sex without him making sure that she sex enjoying it as well and they began to have a wonderful time in bed, greatly improving their relationship 1.

    This was a beautiful memory Sitora had of her marriage and one she had never before been able to share. She could not discuss such things even with her sisters or close women friends. However, Sitora and Haydar lived in the confining setting of the former Soviet Union, a place with its own specific approach to sex.

    Among the first laws the Bolsheviks passed were ones making marriage a civil contract rather than a religious sacrament, thus tajikistan the legalisation of divorce; abortions also became easier to obtain.

    Even beyond this, a movement began to condemn the sexual restrictions of the previous bourgeois lifestyle Carleton3. For instance, Alexandra Kollontai, the most powerful woman among the Bolshevik leaders, claimed that under socialism sex would be as simple tajijistan drinking a wex of water sex this opened the doors for all kinds of extra-marital relationships Kon51ff.

    As a result of the laxness of social tajiklstan well as tajikistan control over sexuality, men found themselves in a position to impose themselves on women even more than previously.

    Since resources were now supposedly held in common, in some circles this was taken to include women, conceptualised as belonging to men rather than as partners with them. In some cities, women were declared public goods to be shared among all male inhabitants Shtern This led to the development of a concept of free sex as essential to the socialist movement, which in turn allowed men to justify forcing women to participate in all kinds of sex acts.

    A refusal could result in their being labelled bourgeois anti-socialist reactionaries, a term with significant negative consequences. It was particularly difficult for younger women such as students to resist pressures to give in to male demands; tanikistan had abortions or ended up with unwanted babies while others, abandoned upon pregnancy, committed suicide Geiges and Tajikistan ; Hohmann ; Kon As a result, researchers in the Soviet Union started to develop contraceptive technologies at a time when sex North America it was a criminal offence even to advocate their use Coliver ; Kon Divorce was made difficult, abortion outlawed, and all mention of birth control suppressed.

    From then until tajikiistan in the mid s, the public discussion of sex was strongly discouraged. Almost the only writings about sex could be found in samizdat — illegal, home-produced publications sex under the counter Kon The only person I ever met who had actually read any of these was from Novysibirsk, the famous university town, where during his student days in the sfx s and early s, samizdat sex manuals had been available, sex mainly of Western book translations.

    A few foreign doctors working in the USSR published accounts of their experiences there. They speak of a very significant level of sexual problems resulting from almost total ignorance. Among issues they addressed were a lack of sexual satisfaction to the point where the majority of Russian women were said never to have experienced an orgasm, considerable brutality around the sex act, and extremely high abortion rates, with a lifetime rate of over twenty-five abortions per woman not uncommon Grey gajikistan Kon ; Shtern At the same time, stories abounded on extraordinary sexual practices, particularly in larger towns.

    For instance, it was said that people were having sex with total strangers tajikistan public places, including while riding the metro and buses in Moscow. The large numbers of multiple partners among some social groups was evidenced by correspondingly high rates of STDs, and sexual harassment was common Kon I myself witnessed this last aspect both within the Academy of Science buildings in Moscow and on the metro.

    In addition, I was told that Party officials frequently forced young women into sexual relations; it was also said that most women in high positions in the Communist Party had slept their way xex. At the time of the October Revolution, in the sedentary plains regions of what are now Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, girls and women lived largely in seclusion. They could only leave their homes accompanied by a family member and wearing a long cloak over tajikistzn thick horsehair veil, without even eye holes 4.

    Once thriving from the traffic of the Silk Road, between around andthe region had since been largely cut tajikistan from the outside world. AfterCentral Asia was once more largely cut off from contact beyond its southern borders. In the mid s, the region was divided into republics; the Tajikistan of Tajikistan in its present form came into being in While the Russian rulers tried hard to persuade the Central Asians tajiiistan modify their gender identities and bring them sex to those of the Slavs, largely by forcing them to tajikistan veiling, seclusion and other related customs, they did not succeed in significantly moderating the underlying gender norms.

    One way these were manifested was in strict control over female mobility, especially of unmarried girls, something that continues to this day. The messages they gave them about what would happen should their hymen somehow become ruptured before their wedding night so frightened those with whom I have discussed the issue that they fetishised what they had between their legs to the point of freezing all feeling in that sex, for most.

    Irrespective of cost, it had to be preserved until the wedding night. It is hardly surprising then that brides were rarely ready to explore their sexuality. Most women with whom I sex the subject said that all they knew in advance about the marriage bed was that the experience would be painful and that they would bleed. Some had not even heard of sex and related the bleeding to menstruation. Among the majority of those with whom I discussed the matter, those who said to have later experienced arousal claimed that this only happened after years of marriage, usually upon reaching their thirties.

    Few men seemed to make any particular attempt to arouse or satisfy their wives. This was true even for some who claimed to want their wives to respond sexually Harris b. I never heard of anyone being tajiikistan about it except immediately before marriage but even this was rare. During the late s, I worked with many hundreds of teenagers in the villages of southern Tajikistan and they all claimed never to have received any information on sex from an adult.

    In fact, most of the adults I knew barely understood anything about sex themselves. He said that luckily he was experienced so he knew what to do but when men were not, or if they had problems functioning, no help was at hand. Teenage boys we worked with in a number of villages told us their uncles in Tajikistan it is esx and aunts rather than parents who traditionally advise young people about sex had advised them deliberately to hurt their tajikishan on their wedding night in order to ensure that they would be frightened by them and would thus always obey them, but supplied no further details.

    A young man who had not been able to consummate his marriage after several months consulted one of our NGO staff. He knew he was supposed to do something, but did not know what; nor did his wife. He had been too embarrassed to ask a family member but felt that our staff members were so approachable that he felt emboldened to speak.

    In other words, most boys are expected to know what to do with little if any information or help. One who cannot do so has equally failed in his obligation towards his parents, although this is rarely talked about since it is even more shameful than a girl losing her virginity. In some families a sheet is still placed underneath the bride for her to bleed on, but very commonly it is the groom who blows the whistle if his bride does not bleed.

    Conversely, he may try to find a way to put the blame for his impotence on his bride. She did not seem to welcome the chance to build some kind of emotional relationship first because she had been told that real men just went ahead with their business and she was determined not to allow her husband to fall short of this ideal. When another young man had serious problems with premature ejaculation, his wife saw him as having failed in his performance of masculinity and therefore despised him.

    I have met quite a number of Tajik women who, like these two, find it more important for their husband to be admired for his manliness than to have a better relationship with a softer, gentler man who may cause them to be mocked by friends and relatives for his failure to conform. The fact that in these particular cases the events were taking place within the privacy of the marital bed did not provide sufficient excuse for swx inappropriate performance of gender, according to these women Harris In the course of our NGO work, we came across instances of men with so little sex of female anatomy that, tajiksitan knowing where the vagina was located, they had attempted rather violently to make extra holes in their brides, who had subsequently to be rushed to the hospital pouring with blood.

    The pressures on enterprises sex be financially viable acted as a stimulus for both the publishing and video industry to produce pornography. For the first time since the s, it was permitted tajikistaan speak openly about sex. After the fall of the Soviet Union, this intensified; many Western pornographic movies were dubbed into Russian and by the mid s, had become easily available Goldschmidt Tajikistan had been the poorest of the Soviet republics and its economy had been hard hit by the break-up of the union.

    The civil war was the final blow to employment prospects for the majority, especially in Qurghonteppa, where it had been fought most fiercely.

    By the late s, large numbers of adult men tajikistab working as labour migrants in the Russian Federation. Upon their return, they brought with them new commodities, at that time unknown in Tajikistan. It was in that manner that the first video-cassette recorders came to Qurghonteppa, almost inevitably accompanied by pornographic movies.

    Those who had never set tajikistan outside Tajikistan seemed especially bowled over by them and eager to try out the new practices shown. In the early days when only one or two men had VCRs, they would invite all their friends round to watch. I remember in one village the shocked tones in which I was informed by a woman that one such viewing had occurred the previous evening.

    Apparently that particular movie had put an emphasis on anal sex because later that night many viewers had attempted this with their wives. The next morning there was almost a riot as young wife after young wife told her mother-in-law she would leave her husband if he ever again tried to force on her such unnatural and repulsive acts.

    After its airing, one of my friends told me the men in her village had become lazy. They wanted their wives to do all the work. One of these was the issue of female pleasure. Nothing in the movies at least in those I have seen showed a realistic picture of how to pleasure women.

    Several days later, when the sex tajikistan appeared online, the activist recognized the inside of the tajikistan as the same one she had gone to with her tajikistan. She did not seem to sex the chance to build some kind of emotional relationship first because she had been sex that real men just went ahead sex their business and she was determined not to allow her husband to fall short of this ideal. sex dating
