An Unmentionable Problem for Women :: Arab News

This phenomenon has always bemused me no end.

In Dubai, you have your choice. If you are a woman, and you want to buy your unmentionables from a man (usual, a man from India) you can do so, but you don't have to. Evidently, there are enough women in Dubai with these preferences to keep these kinds of stores in business.

In Saudi Arabia, you don't have a choice. The only women's lingerie stores allowed are those staffed solely by men. I imagine there are a lot women in the Kingdom whose trip to the lingerie shop leaves them uncomfortable, in more ways than one.

I head that they did try having Filipina shop assistants a few years back, but they were just raped constantly.
