There’s No Safe Sex in Saudi Arabia
Posted on Oct 7, 2009
Bragging about one’s sex life is lame, but is it lame enough to earn 1,000 lashes and five years in prison? A Saudi man has been sentenced to just that punishment for going on TV and talking about his extramarital liaisons.
It brings a whole new meaning to “if you liked it then you should have put a ring on it.” —PS
On the show, filmed in his Jeddah home, Abdul Jawad spoke about picking up women and displayed sex toys on camera.
Extra-marital sex is illegal in Saudi Arabia, one of the most conservative societies in the Arab world.
The 32-year-old father-of-four’s interview prompted around 200 complaints from Saudi viewers and calls for him to be punished.
