Most Popular Articles on Experiencing the Emirates

Sex Sells
The most hit on and searched article on the site in this last week was a simple link I made to another (New York) article that reviewed a book on sexual guidance for married partners in the UAE.

The title I gave the article was ‘Sex in the Emirates’.

I have been reminded of the secret to literary success: Write a book or blog posting that includes the word ‘sex’.

Marriage in the Skies
The second most popular article was a reflection on the teaming up of Emirates Post with the new airline flyDubai. It was entitled, “Do You Want Airline Tickets With your Postage Stamps?”

Shisha Survey
The third most popular article this week reflected on the recent observation by medicos in the UAE that an increasing number of women were smoking the hubbly-bubbly.

The doctors said they were seeing more women with respiratory problems, who also confessed to having smoked the shisha.

No reasons were given for the rise in shisha smoking among women. I came up with half a dozen reasons and attempted a blog survey which got lost in a puff of smoke.

Thanks for reading and thanks for your comments!
