Saudi Women, Oppressed by Husbands, Turn to Stripping in Internet Chat Rooms in Search of “Admiration”
Following are excerpts from a TV report on Saudi women and web cams, which aired on LBC TV on April 18, 2007:
Reporter: Behind closed doors and far from any supervising eyes, they remove their shame and turn their backs on all customs and traditions. Girls display their bodies in chat rooms on the Internet, in most cases, free of charge. As soon as one of these girls places the camera in front of her, she begins to strip, displaying her seductive charms to more than 300 young men of different ages. Some believe that the phenomenon of stripping over the Internet may be understood within the framework of social hypocrisy, especially since they believe that our religious and educational discourse does not attribute importance to the strengthening of self-restraint, and prefers the appearance over the essence. This drives some people to play several roles and wear several masks.
Commentator: Women are seeking emotions and admiration. This way, she gets words of admiration for her personality and even her body. She might remove one piece of clothing after another, in order to gain this admiration.
Reporter: On the other hand, many believe that web stripping has not reached the proportions of a phenomenon, and that these are merely isolated cases. They emphasize that the vast majority of our girls protect their modesty and respect the customs, and traditions. These people believe that web cams can be useful tools. They can be used to maintain family ties, and can have educational applications, in lectures and conferences, for example.
Many young men and women believe that the endless prohibitions drive them to hide behind closed doors, and surf in relations that rebel against all costumes and traditions, in search of love, in some cases, and in order to satisfy their urges, in other cases, especially since the Internet gives them the opportunity to openly declare their repressed desires without fear.
Young Saudi woman in shopping mall: The girls misuse the web cams. They take them into their rooms, and even their families do not know that they have cameras, or what the girls use their laptops or web cams for.
Young Saudi man in shopping mall: A girl can buy a web cam for a very cheap price, 70-75 riyals. She takes it to her room, closes the door, and begins the show.
Reporter: Although Saudi Arabia has a strict mechanism to block access to site that are immoral, these chat rooms are available to all. Teenagers are the most frequent visitors to these sites.
The camera scans her body, sending an image, with all the details, to the other party. The further she goes with her stripping, the mare admiration she harvests, until she becomes a star, applauded by the masses – or so she imagines.
Saudi psychologist Samira Al Ghamadi: Instead of becoming upset that such images are being broadcast, we should ask why such things happen in our homes. Why do our children enter these sites? Out of curiosity. They seek answers to things we never explain to them. We tell them that this is forbidden, and shameful, shameful, shameful, shameful... We never answer them. We always say: “They will learn in the future.” But they learn the wrong things, I am very sorry to say. We do not give them a sense of security. We do not give them enough room to express themselves, so they go to chat rooms. Many women might be upset with me for saying so, but there are married women whose husbands constantly pressure them, while they themselves go out at night and hang out. So the wife withdraws into the Internet and meet many people. She chooses an imaginary name, and meets guys who value her and treat her properly, while on the other hand, her husband humiliates her. Why wouldn't she go there?

العديد من رجال الأمن، وإن فضلوا عدم ذكر أسمائهم، يقرون بمعرفتهم بأماكن بعض الفيلات المخصصة للدعارة، خصوصا منها تلك التي يرتادها خليجيون، لكنهم لا يستطيعون فعل شيء. Many of the security men, and preferred to remain anonymous, admit knowingly places some villas for prostitution, especially those frequented GULF, but they can not do something. أكثر من ذلك أن إحدى الفرق الأمنية التحقت مؤخرا بإحدى الفيلات الكائنة بضواحي مدينة مراكش، للبحث في حادث سرقة استنادا إلى شكاية تقدم بها إلى السلطات أحد الأثرياء الخليجيين، ووقفت الفرقة، خلال عملية البحث، على أن تلك الفيلا مخصصة للدعارة، والمشتكي هو من يديرها، والسرقة التي تعرض لها كانت من إحدى خليلاته، ولكن رجال الأمن لم يستطيعوا تعميق البحث أكثر وتدوين كل ما توصلوا إليه من حقائق في محضر متابعة، بعد أن تلقوا تعليمات عليا بترك «السائح الخليجي» وشأنه؟!

I am just coming back from Morocco and I can tell you, you can enjoy yourself if you go to the right places! Who would have thought that Morocco can offer not only cheap Lacoste shirt and copy of the most famous Swiss watches, you can also find some very nice girls who are going to accept to come to your hotel for the all night. I will speak about my own experience in Casablanca but you will find similar place also in the bigest cities. One evening we decided to go to a typical Moroccan restaurant in the centre of the city. I do not like to give its name because the goal of this paper is not to make advertising. There is a big difference between our restaurants, in Europe and those in Morocco. In Morocco you go first to the bar where a lot of girls are waiting for customers. These girls get tips if your order some drink but very little, their main occupation is to find a customer for the night. You have first to scan around you and maybe approaching a girl. First obstacle, the language, do not expect to meet a girl with English knowledge, if you are lucky you could maybe speak some French. Once you make a touch, you are able to invite the girl to your table. Why not once eating with a nice girl before fucking and what is great you have not to pay for the time the girl is accompanying you as it is oft the case in Europe, is it not fantastic! In such restaurant you have always music and now you will enjoy your meal because your girl will dance for you, in front of your eyes and it is not forbidden to dance with her, you are welcome. Good eating, nice girl and nice atmosphere, you have everything to spend good time together. Give about 100 $ to the girl and she will stay with you the all night. At about 1:30, the girl is allowed to go out of the restaurant with you and you can go directly to your hotel. Be careful, you are not able to take a girl in your room, you have to book a room for her because the Morocco law does not allow strangers to go with Morocco girls unless you are married and you can prove it. Once you are in your room ... feel free!

Don't miss Ceasar discotec at Sheraton Hotel Casablanca. Great stuff running from 100 TO 200 US. Best place around.

Morocco is a contradiction - a Muslim country with fairly liberal attitudes. In the tourist cities, Makarresh & Fez, you will find offers of Boys, Girls, Sheep, Donkeys and Dope every 5 feet. However, you can't take girls to your hotel - you have to rent rooms in special "vice hotels" and you MUST deal with pimps due to the way things work. I was quoted DHS400 (US$1 = DHS9) plus hotel for a night a fun. I didn't do it because the pimp wanted half the money up front. In Fez, a freelance girl picked me up on the street. I gave up trying to do a deal after 10 hours of hanging out together because I lost patience with the convoluted Arab courtship stuff. If you are into guys and dope, this is the place to do it, because it's the accepted thing.
Casablanca has open street prostitution centered on Blvd Hassan Seghir and Rue Mohommed Smiha between Ave des FAR and Place de 20 Aout. This will set you back DHS 200 for full service, plus DHS 100 for the hotel. The women aren't great looking, but OK by street standards. Better looking women can be found in Nightclubs - try La Fontaine, Le Don Quichotte, and L'Arizona. Expect to get pay DHS50 per beer, and getting socked for DSH500 for ladies drinks. I didn't follow this to the end, because I just don't have the endurance anymore.
