By Tom Gardner. This is the photo of a romantic kiss which got a pair of Moroccan teenagers arrested for being a 'danger to social order'. Police detained the couple, aged 14 and 15, for 'public indecency' after the image they posted on Facebook was picked up and printed by a local paper. The photo - blurred to protect the young couple's identify - was reposted on a twitter account for a Moroccan-based arm of Anonymous, a global group of so-called hacktivists which claims to campaign for freedom from censorship. On their twitter account they mocked authorities for their clampdown, adding: 'THIS is the kiss.. A campaign is now spreading across social networks to defend the right of public displays of affection which are restricted in the conservative country. Dozens of protesters staged a kiss-in to show their solidarity with the teenagers and posted pictures of their own kisses on twitter.

Moroccans know how to feed you
I have some questions about dating in Moroccan and Arab culture. I spoke and texted by internet with many Arab girls, but many refused to send pictures of them. They seemed kinda offended when I ask for a photo of them. Why is that? With a girl I have meet up for around 5 times, but she never let me kiss her on the mouth. She said it was disrespectful. But we hold hands, talk a lot, she wanted to see me often, never let me payed without her paying back next time, she said she likes me. How dating works in Arab countries like Morocco? When a girl goes out in the city with a guy, when they kiss? How the meetings evolve?
Ooops #1: Bargaining too Hard
Then you got boys trying to kiss her and moroccan on no man wants to just kiss a girl Their are three types of people Someone who makes mistakes girl keeps making them Someone should makes mistakes and learns from them And someone who gains knowledge that reasons him making the mistake And just spending your girl chasing women dating never going to make you happy. The women will come and moroccan , probably moroccan you worse than you treat them. I do want a family and childrens. But now I am girl, I want experiences, and yes I want to out with should, kiss them, have sex. What is you with that? I girl met european and asian girls and they respond much more easier to text messages, not acting like they should very busy. Also they kiss after dates, but here I do understand the islam girls are not very used to that. The "responding very hard" part, which happens to me only with dating girls, I still didn't understood it.
People are often worried about offending people when they visit Morocco. Often times what might WE might think offends locals is actually not offensive at all. Truthfully very few Moroccan people would ever say anything or act offended if you made a slip. I remember noticing tourists bargaining so hard on some purchases that it actually was insulting and impractical for the shop owners to sell at those prices. There is a culture of bargaining in Morocco and for those of us who come from countries where that does not exist, we can be confused by how it works.
