Danish newspaper Politiken today has an interesting article about Saudi Arabian women, written and photographed by Klaus Holsting.
The Saudi women are sometimes referred to as B.M.O.'s (black moving objects) because when in public, they are obliged to dress in black burkas.
Apparently, women and men are not really allowed to mix, therefore they must be very discrete - and creative - when flirting with each other.
According to Holsting, one of the more advanced ways to flirt, is via Bluetooth enabled phones. When activating Bluetooth in a restaurant names such as "Sensitive Girl" or "Prisoner of Tears" pops up on the display as the girl's way to flirt and potentially connect with boys through the invisible as well as visible walls that separate them.
