Dubay: Displeased with “Sex and the City” because of “sex” in the title

I imagine that the content of the film could have had something to do too: Libero News – ‘Sex and the City’ stoppato a Dubai Non piace la parola ‘sesso’ nel titolo

Sex and the City: Dubai's authorities are displeased because of the word "sex".

Sex and the City: Dubai's authorities are displeased because of the word "sex".

“Sex and the City 2″, which was scheduled to be filmed in Dubai has been stopped: in its path, the film has found a truly hard obstacle, the tradtional conservative culture of the United Arab Emirates. The Emirates’ financial weekly, Arabian Business, has reported about it, quoting US MSM. “The Emirates’ authorities are very displeased” – it can be read it its site – “with the title because of the word “sex”“. Something which makes people think that the scenes scheduled for Dubai will be cancelled.

Arabian Business -which calls the film infamous- and Financial Express report about it in English.

Note: I am not a fan of this film but considering Islamic world’s problems with sex, maybe watching people speaking freely about these issues would change their pre-historic views on sex.
