Reader comment on item: Arabian Sex Tourism
in response to reader comment: FOUR WIVES VS MANY PARTNERS

Submitted by Sugato Mitra (India), Jan 3, 2010 at 03:17

"FOUR WIVES VS MANY PARTNERS" by James ... He has only tried to justify the Arab lust for minor virgin girls, by bringing the position of women in Western society into his argument. The poor chap thinks that free sex is prevalent in the animal kingdom only and hence must be abhorred in human society.

Animal and humans have a lot more in common than just free sex. Animals eat, drink, defecate and sleep. Stop doing these as a human being, James. The notion of free sex is essentially based on the premise that women like men should be free to choose their sex partners. That sex should not necessarily lead to obligations. That the partners should indulge in sex with full mutual consent and responsibility for the consequences. That sex should not take place with minors.

There are any number of positives. Christianity or Hinduism does not sanction polygamy as Islam or laws prevalent in Islamic countries do. So you think prostitution does not survive in Islamic societies? Come to Pakistan and check out for yourself. You think that marrying minor virgins for one night by Viagra charged doddering old Arabs is OK? Why can't that ...Arab find a virgin minor to marry in Allah's own land? They ... are just exploiting poverty to satisfy their perversions. And Islam sanctions that! ...
