I can see your ass'.

It all depends on whether the shape of his arse is in line with the current body fashions of old arab type guys. I'm not qualified to pass judgement.

They can not have it all ways, but if the locals wish to carry on living in a country which looks after all their cultral and religious needs they could move to the place where, toilets are built facing away from Mecca, local councils only open grave yards on a Saturday if you are Muslim, Christmas holidays have been renamed end of term break, the nativty has been banned in many schools and the celebration of any Christian holiday is slowly being outlawed! Yes they can move to the UK

Beach sex trial highlights Dubai cultural divide

By Raissa Kasolowsky and Lin Noueihed

DUBAI, Sept 24 (Reuters) - Sex on the beach or drunken
trysts may not raise eyebrows in many cities, but a recent case
in Dubai has exposed a growing cultural divide between native
Muslims and Western residents seeking fun in the sun.

The story of a British pair facing possible jail terms on
charges of having drunken sex on the beach made headlines around
the world, but in Dubai, reports are frequent of hapless
foreigners falling foul of local laws that strictly control
drinking and ban homosexuality or kissing in public.

Dubai's foreign population has expanded rapidly in recent
years, dwarfing the native population, as the Gulf Arab trade
and tourism hub tries to put itself on the international map
with a promise of tax-free earnings and year-round sunshine.

<<snip>>

If the law changed to suit Westerners, said one Emirati
woman, it would be her who lost her freedom. She already forbids
her daughters from going to Dubai's malls and hotels.

"It is up to the person who comes here to be informed," said
the woman, who like most declined to be named on a topic which
they feel is too sensitive to discuss in public.

"If there is an open trading system which draws people from
all over the world, it is not fair to ask why they are not free.
You have to follow the rules of wherever in the world you go."

And yet they move to my country and refuse in court to abide by our laws.

I still don't see where the cultural divide is tbh

shagging on the beach is illegal in South Shields as well, not to mention difficult because of the cold

reminds me of the muslim school teacher who refused to remove her veil when teaching primary school children. she had however felt comfortable enough not to wear a veil when being interviewed by men for the job in the first place. she was sacked and took the school to court. she lost.

well I did want to say 'well if you can see my ass then why don't you look away?'.

I was mostly covered by my t-shirt, its not as if I had my tackle swinging about.
