Sex in Bahrain

A Bahraini student has been sentenced to three months in prison for having sex with her boyfriend in a car park. The amusing part is that she tried to challenge the law under which she was arrested, citing her democratic rights:
"'What my friend and I were doing is part of our individual freedom. This is a democratic and free country,' the student, who is above the age of 21, told the judge sentencing her. Police said they found the girl and her boyfriend in 'an intimate position' in a car park."

The judge, meanwhile, suggested she learn that, "Our laws are different from those in the West." Often there are cultural stereotypes on all sides. Or perhaps the judge just got forwarded this post.
