Extramarital Sex Chat Lands Egyptian TV Host with 3-Year Jail Term
An Egyptian court has sentenced a popular TV host to jail for 3 years for discussing ways women can get pregnant if they are not married – a topic the Muslim government feels outrages public decency.
Doaa Salah asked viewers on her Al-Nahar TV show ‘With Dody’ if they had considered having sex before marriage. She then suggested that women who wanted kids, but didn’t necessarily want to be married, could marry briefly and then once pregnant get a divorce.
“You simply need to have the money and then separate,” she said, reports Al Arabiya. Salah made the comments during an episode entitled ‘Single Mothers’ in July while sporting a fake baby bump. The show was then suspended for three months.
Salah also suggested paying a potential husband for his services and pointed to the fact sperm donation is an accepted form of insemination in Western countries, though not in her homeland.
