Khadija Ahmed, who runs the Gulf’s only known sex shop located in Bahrain, found herself in hot water on Monday as she faced charges of insulting a customs officer who had refused her the right to import some of her merchandise.
Ms Ahmed runs an unusual business, by Bahraini standards at least, as her products are aimed at helping married couples spice up their sex lives. Her shop, the Khadija Fashion House, sells toys, lingerie and sex aids to her loyal customers in Bahrain.
Customs officials insist that some of the products are not authorised for import into Bahrain, but the Bahraini mum disagrees, insisting that her work is not improper and that it is a service to ‘married couples’ who suffer from a ‘lack of interest’ in sexual relations.
The case has been adjourned until September.Sarah O'Connell, Staff Writer, Gulf Jobs Market
