Sociologists said the phenomenon has as much to do with cultural norms as it does with medical need. Arab men suffer from erectile dysfunction and other sexually debilitating conditions at similar rates to the rest of the world but they live in a culture in which male virility and fertility is a foundational component of masculinity. Along with the high demand for anti-impotence medication is social stigma, Belhadj Mohamed noted, with many in society viewing it as unnatural or perverse.
