Orientalist Art

I've just discovered that I really, really like Orientalist art depicting the Middle East. Unfortunately, a lot of them are of 'harems' and naked women. Gah. Westerners' obsession with sex never fails to disgust me.

But anyway, there are some really beautiful pictures - like the one I posted below. So you can look forward to seeing lots of gorgeous pictures, rich in colour and in stories.

That is a nice pic, Mouse. But I think it's not just Westerners' obsession with sex. I think pretty much the entire world is equally obsessed with sex. India's pop stars wear ridiculously little. Arab pop stars wear ridiculously little. Japanese have porno comics and read them in public.

It's not a Western thing. It's a human thing. And as a human and a Westerner, I can't say I mind. :oD

Yeah, its a human thing, but It can get quite annoying with the lack of respect in society of some of those perverts specially towards a lot of religious people. America is a highly orthodox christian community, just take a look between a french movie sex-scene and a american one :O, it's just a matter of morality and respect imo ...

You know you need to read a biography of the Prophet - you will discover he was very potent sexually and able to satisfy a dozen of his wives every night!

(You want to know about who is obsessed with sex then I suggest you start studying the hadith!)
