Sex and the city - of Amman
No no, Sarah Jessica Parker is not planning a new season in Amman, this series stars local talent. 100% home grown in the fancy English speaking suburbs in Amman. And no these are not foreigners or imported sex workers from Eastern Europe. These are local talents. Guys and gals from middle class and higher living and following the Parker's teachings of to the letter!
I'm not exaggerating at all. All you need to do is to search a bit in the Jordanian blogs and you might stumble upon these. It won't be too hard.
You will start hearing stories about these (mostly females) talking about their encounters with their "BF's" and how he turned out to be a good/average/great kisser after going out with him on date!
Search some more and you will see more secrets and techniques on how to keep your life in your boyfriend's bedroom active and fun. And you'll even find tips on how to get away without having your mother catch you with blisters around your mouth or love bites on your neck or worse!
But to give credit where credit is due the mother was very firm when she finds out. And would be very strict in asking if he has called that day, where is the whole thing going and tries to make sure that the daughter is using the right concealer so that those love-bites don't leave a mark.
I went through a bunch of these and started thinking! It seems that I'm missing-out on all the action back in Jordan! I mean, if the guys and gals are having so much fun clubbing, pubbing, drinking, one-night-standing, multi-partnering ...etc .. then I should really disconnect my HBO subscription and just go to Amman and enjoy the show first hand. Who knows the Soprano's will probably follow soon after! Since "Big love" was stolen from 7aj Mitwalli anyways.
What's up Jordan!!? What ever happened to all the strict families?! I remember how the lady friends way back when. it was easier for them to die than to leave home late, and the new generation is getting laid as a routine thing!!? The guys even have score cards!!? My god!
Look, I'm not uptight or too strict .. but for god's sake .. this is way too much! Doing it behind closed doors in a don't-ask-don't-tell situation is one thing. But 3aini-3ainak (in broad daylight) is really ... really not who we are!
On the other-hand, I might just be jealous!
