During the upcoming 2022 World Cup, the government of Qatar has outlawed s*x outside of marriage among players and spectators and imposed a seven-year jail sentence for anybody caught in violation of this decree.
Fans of the World Cup are not immune from the country’s prohibition on having s*x outside of marriage.
In addition to a strong “no drinking in public” regulation, Qatar bars anybody from being intoxicated in public.
Public display of love between men and women is likewise prohibited, as is overly exposing apparel.
The World Cup is a worldwide celebration of football, but the restrictions in Qatar may be rather harsh.
Meanwhile, a police source was quoted in the British press saying that “s*x is not the order of the day, unless you come as a couple.”
“There will certainly be no one-night stands at this tournament. There will be no partying at all, really. Everyone has to keep a cool head, unless they want to risk going to jail. For the first time in the history of the World Cup, s*x is banned. Fans need to be prepared.”
A few weeks ago, the Emir of Qatar explained that “everyone is welcome” at the tournament. “We don’t prevent anyone from coming to Doha with different backgrounds, different beliefs, Qatar is a very welcoming country.
“We have millions of people who come to visit our country and the World Cup is a great opportunity for people from different parts of the world to come and discover our culture,” said Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani.
