Slavery in Arab Countries

About half of the Saudi workforce are migrant workers

If you pay attention to the news media, you will often come across stories relating to the abuse and mistreatment of migrant workers in Islamic countries. In Saudi Arabia for instance, almost one half of the entire workforce is made up of foreign labourers and some them are treated worse than slaves.

Most often the company organising workers on behalf of individuals or companies will retain the individual’s passport and documents which means that even in the country in which they work, they have no freedom.

Most of the men that go into these countries work in construction. They come to Saudi because there is not the work in their

Modern Slavery and Sex Trafficking

An age old problem facing humanity

While there are some women who are kept chained, such scenes as this are fetish practices after which all participants returned to their daily life

It seems probable that slavery extends back to the very first humans with those who were not perhaps so bright were told by others what to do. In other words or another way of expressing this is: submitting to someone else’s will is an optional survival strategy.

With the increase in the human population, at different periods of time and history which we know from old accounts that slaves in essence became the workers and the architects became the middle-class. In Roman society almost everyone had slaves including

A basic human need

We have not even noticed that the cause behind all many illnesses and disorders of our lives may be a lack of sleep and the amount and quality of sleep has changed with the development of human civilization.

The Healing Power of Orgasm

Fact or fiction?

There is no general consensus as to the reason we orgasm or any agreement as to what it actually does. We know that it floods the body with some feelgood chemicals and that it’s a deeper sexual experience which helps to facilitate social bonds.

There is some debate as to whether or not the male ejaculation counts as an orgasm or if it is simply a release mechanism for accumulated stress, but there is no doubt that orgasms are very important for women, so much so that in the 1700s and 1800s, masturbation became a commonly used treatment for what men called women’s hysteria.

There is no doubt that life can be very frustrating and good sex
