The alley by the entrance to my hotel in Amman happened to be the place to shop for lingerie, some of it quite kinky. It was interesting to see women in full covering shopping in stores such as the one pictured above. All the salespeople were men, and husbands almost always shopped with their wives, paying for the purchases. They did quite a steady business.

That *is* interesting. I assumed that married women could wear this stuff in the privacy of their homes, but never knew how they'd actually shop for it. And i didn't think there would be such openness to the storefront. Weird double standards.

It's only a double standard if you think about it the wrong way.

I mean, it's not like the mannequins have any modesty to protect. :)
