Trial set after Eid for Saudi TV sex bragger

Saudi man who described his sex life in detail on TV will face charges after celebrations - sources.

The trial of a Saudi man arrested for boasting about his sex life on TV has been scheduled for after Eid, it has been reported.

Sources told the Saudi Gazette that the case of Mazen Abdul Jawad, a divorced father of four who appeared on the LBC talk show ‘The Bold Red Line’, would be heard after the celebrations marking the end of Ramadan.

Jawad, dubbed the ‘Saudi Casanova’ by local media, provoked controversy by describing his sex life and how he tried to pick up women using the Bluetooth device on his mobile phone.

He was charged with “publicly taking about his sexual exploits” and turning his home into a “den for sinful acts”.

Sources told the paper the Attorney General is seeking “severe discretionary penalty” as per Shariah Law and that Jawad’s lawyer was seeking bail for his client until the trial begins.

The paper also reported that the lawyer would ask for the case to be referred to the Ministry of Culture and Information.

Saudi-owned LBC (Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation) is known for its coverage of subjects deemed controversial in many parts of the Arab World, and is especially popular among young people.

Unfortunately this is what seems par for the course in the World now. Myself, I preferred life back in 60's , 70's and half of 80's when life was sweet and uncomplicated ,no internet with porn and rubbish everywhere, children untainted and uncorrupted by looking at rubbish etc etc etc and people cared about others. Please roll back clock to those great days !.
