DAMN SHAME / Serious Shit

Saudi sex braggart gets no relief in court appeal


RIYADH (Reuters) – A Saudi appeals court has upheld a sentence of five years in jail and 1,000 lashes for a Saudi man who bragged about his sexual exploits on television, newspapers reported Tuesday.  The court in Jeddah also confirmed a five-year travel ban for airline employee Mazen Abdul-Jawad, and sentences of two years plus 300 lashes for three friends who also appeared on the show, aired by Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation (LBC).  Officials at the court could not be reached for comment.

Abdul-Jawad, a divorced father of four, was arrested in August after discussing his premarital sexual encounters on LBC’s “In Bold Red” program.  LBC’s Western-style entertainment programs and talk shows are popular in Saudi Arabia. But it is one of the world’s most conservative countries, and many viewers were shocked by the show.  Saudi judges, who are clerics of its strict Wahhabi school of Islam, have wide latitude to issue sentences according to their interpretation of Islamic law, which critics say leads to some arbitrary rulings.  Authorities closed LBC’s offices in Saudi Arabia after the show was aired. Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is a majority shareholder in LBC.  The convicted men can appeal again to a higher court.

If this were to happen in the U.S., there would be no men on the streets at all.  Men brag even when they suck in bed!!

  1. You know what would be unique? If a dude bragged being really bad in bed on TV! That would excellent TV!

    Listening: Yo Vine Pa’ Ver by Joe Cuba Sextet

    • THAT will NEVER HAPPEN!!! LOL! Although… I happen to think when I hear a guy say that “he got his” [climax], and not too concerned if “she got here’s”, isn’t that bragging about being bad in bed?! HAHAHAHAHA!!!

  2. Huh, yeah, I guess that would be bragging about being bad in bed, lol!
    On a serious note, 1000 lashes will probably kill him. Seems to high a price to me, as much as a witless jerk he is. This definitely gets filed under SBTS!

    Listening: Work Song by Ray Barretto. This time it’s Latin Jazz he’s playing.

    • Man, they are in Saudi– if he dies from 1000 lashes over there, that’s just how it goes. Saudi is no joke. They even have “prayer police”. If you don’t stop immediately when the “prayer towers” sound off, they beat your ass into submission. I personally think adult men shouldn’t be bragging about their conquests, but this is pretty extreme. And uhm… what does SBTS mean? Hey, I just figured out how to make a smiley face recently! LOL!
