For those who are not aware, Dubai is extremely ruthless when it comes to their rules and law enforcement. Many people who do travel to Dubai would be made aware of this information either through their own research or by other people’s travel experiences.
The country also holds strict public morality laws like any other who are a part of the UAE (United Arab Emirates). The 40 women who violated this law in a video that has since gone viral, show the women posing naked on a balcony of a skyscraper.
The video was taken by a resident at the Marina district. Pictures that were directly taken in the unit where the shoot was being held were also shared and leaked online. It was later revealed that the shoot was for an Israeli porn site, allegedly organized by a Russian, identified as Alexey Konstov. (Source: Daily Mail). However, the 33-year-old has denied the claims.

Out of the 40 women, 11 women are said to be Ukrainian according to Ukraine’s consulate. Not only was the shoot clearly illegal in Dubai, the act was also condemned by Dubai authorities, saying that the act "does not reflect the values and ethics of Emirati society".
Seeing how strict Dubai is, it does not come as a surprise that pornography is also illegal in the city and in the country of UAE. The organizers of the shoot will be slapped with fines between US$68,060 to US$136,121 (Dh250,000 to Dh500,000) as well as a jail time.
The organizer and the porn actresses all deserve the punishment and hate. If you want to shoot a porn content, do not do it in a country that strictly prohibits such acts. Know the rules of the country you're at and abide by them. This news infuriates me because it is as if they were asking for it in the first place.
