Man on Man Action

So in Saudi Arabia men and women are not allowed to touch in public. Unrelated men and women are not supposed to be seen talking or in the company of one another. 2 men on the other an entirely different story. Cultural norms here are very different, and what would normally be considered homosexual behaviour back home is not so in these parts.

It is not uncommon to see 2 men greet each other by kissing each other's cheeks, and sometimes the forehead. Men here spray each other with cologne, and openly walk hand in hand on the streets, or down the hallway of the hospital. If this were a man and woman it would turn heads- 2 men mafi mushkila (no problemo). Anyways- its amusing to say the least. I laugh all the time thinking what my brother would do if another man tried to hold his hand, or kiss him on the forehead!! Kiss, kiss.......


  1. I'll be honest if another dude tried to hold my hand I might have to give him a shot to the head .... lol

  2. It must create interesting situations for the western men that work with Saudi's over here!!!
