Spring of Sex!

Bahrain is one of the more modern Middle Eastern societies, and so I was dismayed when a performance of Laila Wal Majnoon was touted as indecent because of the dancers dress and movements implying the romantic relationship between the characters. It was performed during Bahrain's "Spring of Culture", which is how the offended individuals went to great creative depths to come up with "Spring of Sex" and "Spring of Foolishness".
I'm just sorry I didn't get to see it...
