Looking at Both Sides
No Doubt

Yes to Burqa and Hasselhoff

This quote brought back some memories. The Saudi regime allowed the people in the country to acquire satellite dishes in the early 90s. They could only pick up, at most, a dozen channels but for that closed and retrograde country it was a boon. So, the Saudis had an absurd situation, as though it wasn't absurd enough, where women in the country can't drive, or be alone outdoors or publicly mingle with non-relatives, yet every week Saudi males would devoutly watch Baywatch on their tellies. The hypocrite Saudis kept their women in a sack but certainly didn't mind ogling Western beauties.

Baywatch must have been, and likely still is, the closest thing to hardcore pornography in that sexually repressed society.
