I Wouldn't Try a Thong


There's at least one part of the world where dressing a little too sexily might not be a good idea:

A town in Muslim-majority Malaysia has threatened to fine non-Muslim women for wearing "sexy" clothes, infuriating some women's organizations.

Authorities in northeast Kota Baru, which calls itself an Islamic city, will slap fines of up to 500 ringgit ($140) on women who expose navels, wear body-hugging outfits, mini-skirts or see-through blouses, the Star newspaper said on Tuesday.

"Such outfits are prohibited here as it smears the reputation of Kota Baru and affects its status as an Islamic city," the Star quoted municipal council spokesman Azman Daham as saying.

If you were thinking of hanging out on the beach in a g-string bikini, or perhaps a thong, may I respectfully suggest that you think about doing it somewhere else?
