Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Worth reading as it punctures a great many sterotypes

    “I wasn’t prepared to go through my life pretending I wasn’t experienced. I was bored of the idea of spending the rest of my life having abortions and then hymen repair operations to fake my virginity, hop into bed with the next man I think I love and lie down pretending I don’t know what to do. No way. I know what to do”.

    And on a more serious note the preacher refered to Amr Khaled is well worth watching, an interesting man who had his 'road to Damascus' moment in London when he realised Islamic culture & society had to modernise or continue to remain 'parasitic' (his words you shrill liberals).
     
  2. An interesting article. I wonder if similar behaviour goes on in Saudi Arabia?
     
  3. I imagine that it does
     
  4. Maybe - but not a great deal of it. It is such a repressive and oppressive regime that it would be difficult for them to conduct any form of sexual activity outside marriage. In two years in Saudi, I only spoke to half a dozen Saudi Women (I do not mean hold a conversation - I mean say anything at all!) - most of those interactions were behind the walls of westernised compound beaches.

    Saudi young men and women are strictly segregated in a primitive and brutal fashion.

    That said, friends of mine who nursed women reported rape and sexual abuse as relatively common.
