Don't have sex on the beach in dubai
Have sex on the beach in austin (unless your ugly)

Good. Now maybe they'll behave themselves.

Let's see:
- cop tells you to quit your hanky panky
- cop goes away
- cop comes back, sees you continuing your hanky panky

Just be happy you got off so lightly.

She was just kissing my wang and I was just hugging her face with my crotch.

Consensus here is that the twunts got just what they deserved. Thousands of us manage to party all over the place and not get thrown in jail over it. Dubai is a party town, but you can't be a yob about it. That's a GOOD thing.

Know what? Very little crime of any kind here either. Swift, sure, and harsh punishment works. Meanwhile Brits and Yanks aren't safe anywhere and everything they own is fair game for any thief. Don't get caught speeding tho.

3 months for sex on a beach seems light, I wonder what you would get for it in New York.

Sex on the beach is good.

Just remember to bring a few extra towels.
 
2008-10-16 11:44:44 AM  
2 parts (4.0 cl) Vodka
1 parts (2.0 cl) Peach Schnapps
2 parts (4.0 cl) Orange juice
2 parts (4.0 cl) Cranberry juice

Seems rather a harsh penalty for one of these. What's the punishment for a Long Island Iced Tea?
 
2008-10-16 11:44:59 AM  
It's very easy to forget what kind of a place you really live in Dubai with all the clubs and drinking and tiny clothes etc. I believe I know where they were and there are police standing around making sure you don't get too out of hand. This couple sounds like a couple of desperate teenagers who just discovered sex for the first time.

On another note, I was walking through a park in Sydney, Oz when this guy started giving this other guy a bj in broad daylight. I'm looking around like, is anyone else seeing this shiat?!

As someone who has been arrested having sex on a beach I'm getting a kick out of these replies...

What a strange place... executing your daughter to avenge the family honor, ok. Floggings for showing too much skin, ok. But showing affection for another human, hey, that's a jailin'....
If I read the article right, there was no sex involved, just hugging and kissing. Get a grip, folks. These 'laws' are stupid

For those who care:

Alcohol is legal and freely available in Dubai. I am drinking a beer as I type.

Prostitution is big business, tho technically illegal. Not only are theere thousands of hot bolnde RUssian hooker (and Chinese ones if you prefer) but the trolley dollies (flight attendants, moran) based here are notorious as well.

So much for their fall back position of being a vacation spot mecca when the oil is gone.

Have to watch your back for kidnappers, and you constantly have to make sure you do nothing to offend religious zealots. Fun stuff, can't wait to spend thousands.

That made me laugh because I just got done laughing at Jon Oliver on the Daily Show. Hofstra debate - Long Island "Please Jon, I want to leave. Can I come back now?!"

Thats great.

I am sick of so many tourists here in Thailand unable to dress decently. Short shorts and belly shirts at temples, hell some places won't let you in if you dress like that.

it basically comes down to "fark you it's my vacation" and this attitude is earning westerners a horrible image all over. I wish more countries were this strict with tourists.

Well, we've been living in a highly authoritarian state for 7+ years, led by a hick with average intelligence, a love of Chinese silk dresses, and a former communist.

That's like saying it's the warmest spot at the south pole.

Dubai:
Travel for business? You bet! Great place.
Travel to work there? Sure, why not? Good pay. Lots of money.
Travel for pleasure? Have you lost your damn mind?
 
2008-10-16 12:11:46 PM  
They did get off easy, in 3 months they are free. Had this happen in the States they would have been placed on a sex offender registry (well at least the guy would have) and they'd be ruined for the rest of their lives. They've put people on that list for public urination so odds are public sex will get you there.

basilbrush: In America I wouldn't be surprised if you got the chair.



You would get a charge of public indecency, and likely have to register under Megan's law, or at least place yourself at risk of getting the same for pissing outside a pub as a second offense.

Yes, I am familiar with that case. I didn't say that nothing stupid ever happens here. My guess is that they had a new toy and went nuts with it, and a few people got hosed. As the system is, like everywhere else, unable to admit a mistake, they stayed hosed.

If it makes you feel any better the guy in your article was pardoned last month for Ramadan (common) and ended up doin ten months. He's now home. Yeah, it sucks, and I could tell you other stories to, but Dubai isn't Iran or Saudi.

I hate that bastages too, but when your hate is based on ignorance, I just try to correct the ignorance. Plenty of legitimate reasons to hate them.
 
2008-10-16 12:20:52 PM  
Damn... hope it was good sex, 'cause they're sure paying for it. Fines, jail time, sand in the hoo-hah, deportment, and, for him, having it known worldwide that he banged *that*... ouch.

Wrong.

FTA:

"Palmer, who was sacked from her job in Dubai as a publishing executive after her arrest, said in a statement she and Acors had been "just kissing and hugging".

Mr Matter said witness statements, including one from the police officer, were "wrong" and medical examinations had proved Palmer had not had sex on the beach. "


They were kissing and hugging. Cop being the puritan muslim tight arse that he is lied to the court to get back at those sinful furriners.

The only thing wrong those two did is to go there in the first place. Why normal people would want to spend time in those retarded places is beyond me.

Screw Dubai. They just stopped my 101 story tower project I've been working on because of "the market" and they are no longer able to get the funding.
I'm moving back to the States. At least there I can build tall penises, have sex on the beach....oh, wait
