This story is not shocking. The story I still haven't gotten over is how old British women from Leeds take sex tours in Nigeria!

Eagle7, most Brits don't have sympathy for this behaviour. I don't think you should be banned for posting your narrow-minded (and probably flawed) opinion about the locals. Besides, this is not the first case of its kind with Britons involved in sexual activity on a beach in Dubai.

Sex in public is illegal, even in Britain. Though jail time might be a bit harsh, they are in another country and should respect the laws of that country. It's a case of "should have thought about that before doing it!" Besides, the punishment could actually be a lot worse.

They were sure pushing it, doing that in Dubai. Yeah, okay Dubai's more "modern" and "Western-style" than a lot of Middle-Eastern places but let's not take advantage of their openness. A sure way to get some of the less open types to start a backlash against Westerners in Dubai, is to pull crap like this.

Besides, the last thing I'd want to come across on any beach, even in Oz, is a couple of drunks rutting on the beach. Yech! Get a room!

Like your mouth then. Period.

How you "look" at things have nothing to do with reality.

You did strike me as a troll playing the victim card being scared of being banned.

Then don't go there. Like I said, if the guy in the article had thought about where he was and what he was doing before doing it, he wouldn't be in this situation with such a harsh punishment. If you go to a middle eastern country and have sex in public, you have to expect a harsher punishment than what you might be used to. You may not like it but that's the reality and it's the individual's own fault if they don't consider that before hand. It's foolish to go to another country and expect the culture and laws to be the same as they are at home.

The man met the woman at a club & had sex with her on a public beach.They both were intoxicated & their hormones were out of control.They made a stupid mistake.It happens but 3 months in a foreign jail especially in the middle east is abit harsh for a first time offense.They should of been just fined & deported.The middle east culture & laws are quite foul & the way the woman are treated makes me sick.Women are our equals & as such should be treated the same & with respect.
