As Hoveyda's power grew, his sexual appetites seem to have
accordingly diminished. Tofiq, Iran's preeminent satirical journal,
had an inkling of this early in Hoveyda's tenure as prime minister.
on the front page of an issue coinciding with the fourth year of
Hoveyda's appointment as premier, there is a cartoon of him clutching
a young, coquettish girl called "Miss Premier."
