Wedad Lootah is an Emirati marriage counselor working for Dubai’s main courthouse, and the author of the Arabic sex guide Top Secret: Sexual Guidance for Married Couples, published in 2009. She caused a controversy by discussing sensitive topics in the book. Although her frankness earned praise from liberal Muslims, it also drew death threats from fundamentalists who consider the book blasphemorous and her “an infidel, and a sinner.”
