A woman in Saudi Arabia has secretly filmed her husband cheating on her at their home by groping a housemaid. The vengeful wife published the video online, but now faces up to one year in prison according to the kingdom’s laws against revenge videos. In 2000, when streaming video and online purchasing didn’t exist, people couldn’t get their porn any other way. The technological innovations of the past 15 years have obviously not been kind to the adult video store industry. At almost every shop, the people I spoke to said they averaged fewer than five paying customers a day.
The answers ranged from the plausible, “This is my first day,” to the laughable. “This is my first day,” said the same employee the next day when I popped in. Many of the shops are owned by immigrants from Sri Lanka.
I wouldn’t say that I was a victim of racism in college, but I can say that people were strangely interested in learning about my nationality — almost too interested. My peers would often take guesses at where I could be from, and after revealing that I am of Cuban and Puerto Rican descent, the questions and commentary started pouring in. When I mentioned I was fluent in Spanish, they became even more aggressive. A viral video supposedly showing a befuddled pianist and an offkey singer went viral.

It was almost as if people were trying too hard to not offend me as a Latina, with compliments that weren’t genuine. But with these comments, there was a lot of underlying ignorance — something these people are not to be blamed for, because they truly just didn’t know any better. Rather than getting offended, I sought to educate, but I’m sure there’s still a lot of other Latinas who deal with this everyday. Then I turned 18, moved to the middle of nowhere in Pennsylvania to start my college career, and that’s where it all began to change.
They’re sex shops, like the ones you could once find in Times Square. According to Saudi lawyer Majid Qaroob, cited by Emirates 24/7, the man’s wife “faces up to one year in prison or a fine of SR 500,000 [around $133,000] for defaming her husband.” The alleged encounter of the husband with his domestic staff was apparently secretly filmed by the man’s wife with a phone camera. She then posted it online, local media reported this week, saying that before the original clip was taken down from the internet it had gone viral in the Arab state. This poor guy came home early from work to catch his cheating wife in the act.

Indeed, two stores include Sinhalese in their names. The clerks, too, when I went, were almost exclusively of Sri Lankan descent. The largest Sri Lankan population in the city is in Staten Island, which makes for a quick commute back and forth over the Verrazano.
“The minimum punishment for this husband is to scandalize him,” the unnamed wife wrote in her caption to the video, Emirates 24/7 News reported. Growing up, being racially conscious was not part of my nature. I lived in a predominantly Latino community for most of my life, having close to no friends who were of different backgrounds.
Along on a stretch between 39th and 24th Streets, there are eight of these shops, a rate of nearly one per block. Sunset Video, Video City, Candy Hookah Love, Golden DVD—the names are different, but they’re all the same inside. In the scandalous video, a man in traditional Saudi white robes is seen apparently putting his hands all over a female maid in a room that looks like a kitchen.
At one point, when the woman’s hands are busy as she’s holding a tray or a plate, the man tries to kiss her, while she attempts to pull away. Enterprise Get your team aligned with all the tools you need on one secure, reliable video platform.
I never saw more than one person in a store at a time. Only once did I see a patron make a purchase—a lone DVD at Video City.
- Not shy at all in fact they’re smiling and frankly.
- “This is my first day,” said the same employee the next day when I popped in.
- The clerks, too, when I went, were almost exclusively of Sri Lankan descent.
- The largest Sri Lankan population in the city is in Staten Island, which makes for a quick commute back and forth over the Verrazano.
- In the eight shops I visited over seven days, I saw scarcely more than 30 patrons total.
Not shy at all in fact they’re smiling and frankly. There’s not even a pretext here of torture in the name of obtaining intelligence this is just torture for fun. After about an hour of torture of the soldiers cut him down. We are special forces we conduct field executions. And this is why it’s been very hard for some Iraqis to know what the good guys are and the bad guys are.
As a senior officer gives the direction when I tell you that kick he says you let in ago. Soldiers closed the curtains but a low Arkady to continue shooting the ugly scene. Horrible torture I mean this is actually happening under command authority this is someone with some level of authority who has. The jurisdiction to tell soldiers what to do tele soldiers how torture ST Cheney.
One shop was closed at the appointed hour I was set to meet the owner, despite a sign attesting to its 24-hour nature. It’s still open, though I wouldn’t be shocked if it did close tomorrow. “He’ll be here at 10 tonight,” a clerk at Jayoda Video told me on a Monday morning. When I arrived that night, another said he always came in at “10 a.m.” The next morning, the clerk from the previous day said he was there last night. But in trips to all of them, talking to dozens of counter workers, not a single one professed to know the owner.
Arkady in his camera were present when they unit methodically prepared to torture this. I sheep herder from teenage sons were suspected of working for rice’s.
Those people who say they “don’t see race” — I was guilty of being one of them. In the eight shops I visited over seven days, I saw scarcely more than 30 patrons total.

Whether changing hands to avoid paying taxes or rent, or rebranding to be more appealing, the businesses constantly turn over. What was Blue Door Video in 2005 is now Video City. Nilwala Video in 2011 became Candy Hookah Love, with the exact same signage and colors, just a different name.
