Is this because of the rise of freedom in this country that males think they can do what they want.
There is so many thoughts that go through my mind about this subject I can't even think straight, it really is a WTF moment for me.
Not in my wildest dreams would I do any of this S*? I don't know anyone else either? You would have thought this would be a few incidences, but NO!
Are Egyptian males totally sex crazed? Beats me? This is ridiculous.
