Saudi Could Be Flogged For Bragging About Sexual Conquests

Do you find it annoying when men brag about the women they've slept with? Well Saudi Arabia finds it more than annoying — it's flog worthy! Abdul Jawad, a Saudi man who boasted about his sexual conquests on Arab TV, is now facing mounting calls for him to be imprisoned or flogged.

Ignoring the fact that premarital sex is a serious crime in Saudi Arabia, Abdul bragged about how he began sleeping with women at the age of 14. He also chronicled how he met women using the Bluetooth function on his cell phone. Gender-segregated singles in the conservative country use the mobile device to communicate with each other in public. For example, a man might see a group of women sitting in a restaurant, search to see if they have an active Bluetooth device, and then ask for permission to send them text messages.

As you might guess, Abdul isn't the only person in Saudi Arabia that breaks the rules — he's just the least discreet person to do so.
