Egyptian actress to go on trial for encouraging boys to watch porn

An Egyptian actress is to face trial for promoting pornography after she said young men should watch adult movies if they could not afford to get married.

The 44-year-old actress, known as Entissar, sparked controversy last week when she made the suggestion in an interview with the al-Qahira Waalnas TV channel.

An Egyptian actress is to face trial for promoting pornography after she said young men should watch adult movies if they could not afford to get married.

The 44-year-old actress, known as Entissar, sparked controversy last week when she made the suggestion in an interview with the al-Qahira Waalnas TV channel.

In 2009, under the rule of Hosni Mubarak, a top Egyptian court banned online pornography calling it “venomous and vile”.

It has repeatedly called on successive governments since then to enforce the ban.

According to Emirates 247, a case has been filed against Entissar by a pro-government group called “Who Loves Egypt?” for allegedly “inciting debauchery” – which is punishable by one year in prison.

She told Al-Ahram Gate she was “not afraid”.

She said: “I am not afraid because I did not say or do anything wrong.

“I detected a state of many people who resort to sexual films and books before marriage; it is not my problem that we are a society that likes to bury its head in the sand.”

She is due to appear at Nasr City Misdemeanor Court on 10 November for the initial hearing.
