Against all odds,
In conservative Gulf, a Bahraini sex shop is booming. Khadija Ahmed’s sex shop has survived despite Conservatives denounce shps as un-Islamic and some western suppliers shy away from them afraid of Islamist mob wrath.
One frequent challenge of Khadija, is customs official. She often falls in trouble getting her shipments cleared through customs and once ran into a spot of hassle when an official refused to clear a shipment of massage tools and vibration rings.
Expansion is Khadia’s next move, opening branches in Dubai, Lebanon and in one of Bahrain’s shopping malls, as her store has grown too small to display all of her products on shelves.
Will sex toys be the magic wand?
