Adult content is prohibited in many countries especially in the Middle East. The countries like the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar has the strictest Internet censorship.
We often receive questions like:
Is it safe to surf adult sites while you are in UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman, etc?
Let’s resolve this question!
You probably know about the strict Internet censorship in the Middle East. Websites for adults are mostly blocked in this part of the world. Moral rules in Gulf countries prohibit watching such content.
But if you still want to surf such kind of websites you need to be aware that this can be very unsafe in case you do not care about your online privacy and security!
Surf adult sites in UAE (Dubai, Abu Dhabi)
First of all, I need to say that all porn sites are blocked in the United Arab Emirates.
Social media are monitored in UAE and sharing adult content is definitely not allowed.
This is a part of anti cyber crime law in UAE:
“The decree criminalizes activities by any person who creates or runs an electronic site to send, transmit, publish or promote online any pornographic material, gambling activities and any other indecent acts.
It also imposes punishment on any person for attempting to, and for helping others to, seduce others and solicit prostitution and to urge, induce or entice another person to engage in an act of prostitution.
It also criminalizes acts by anyone to insult others or to accuse others of acts which would lead to punishment or contempt by a third party, online or through any other information technology means.”
So you need to be very careful surfing such content in UAE or you can be punished very seriously.
It is absolutely necessary to take care of your privacy and safety online in UAE.
You can use proxy or VPN. VPN (Virtual private network) is much more secure.
Surf adult sites in Saudi Arabia (KSA)
Anti-Cyber Crime Law in Saudi Arabia is just unbelievable!
Only imagine 10 years of prison or five million riyals for cybercrime.
Of course, hacking sites and stealing money is very serious crimes which deserve severe punishment.
But accessing adult content??
Are you kidding??
Especially for expats?
Unfortunately, regardless of your religion and beliefs, you can be deported from Saudi for such things.
And again the only safe solution is caring about security with VPN service for example.
Surf adult sites in Oman, Qatar, Bahrain
Oman, Qatar, and Bahrain are not exceptions in this list.
! No adult
***Be careful and think about your privacy***
