Egyptian Actor Lutfi Labib- We Need Nudity on TV to Battle Sexual Harassment

Egyptian actor Lutfi Labib told Egyptian Dream2 TV last week that sexual harassment in Egyptian society stemmed from the repression of urges and that "we need a little nudity on TV" in order to combat this. Labib can be seen making the comments in a video released by The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

Labib said on one of his visits to the US "one could see naked women,"  but he did not see sexual harassment or anything of the sort.

The actor said that in the days when women in Egypt wore mini-skirts no one ogled them.

"We need a little nudity on TV in order to undo our repression of urges," he said. 

When the interviewer asked for clarification,  Labib said he meant women should not appear on television covered from head to toe. 

The interviewer referred to the "delightful" Lebanese singer and actress Haifa Wehbe who appeared on television in a see-through dress. 

"You feel as if your eyes are trying to climb over the fence of her garden to see what's on the other side," the interviewer said.

Labib said  there was no sexual harassment in Lebanon due to the scantily clad TV hosts there.
