Saudi man arrested after TV sex boasts

More than 100 viewers file complaints with Jeddah court after man describes his sex life on TV show.

A Saudi man has been arrested for bragging about his sexual conquests on television, Arab News reported on Thursday.

Mazen Abdul Jawad admitted on LBC’s Red Line show last week that he had got interested in sex after sleeping with a neighbour aged 14.

He spoke about sex and foreplay in graphic detail and gave out a recipe for an aphrodisiac on the programme, the paper reported.

About 100 people filed a complaint against Jawad at the summary court in Jeddah. They allege he confessed to pre-marital sex and bragged about his sinful behaviour, both illegal in the kingdom.

Local reports said Jawad, a 32 year-old employee of Saudi Airlines, claims he was quoted out of context and that he planned to file a lawsuit against LBC.

Ahmad Qasim Al-Ghamdi, director of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice for Mecca, told the paper everyone involved with the broadcast was culpable.
