CAIRO: Police have arrested a married couple who advertised on Facebook to sexually swap spouses and to host orgies at their Cairo apartment, a security official said on Saturday.
The case involving a 30-year-old accountant and his wife of the same age had been referred to prosecutors, the official said, adding that their Facebook posting had been titled “Wife-swapping.”
In April 2009, a Cairo court sentenced a man to seven years and his wife to three for setting up a swingers’ club, according to their lawyer. The court said they confessed to having sex with other couples.
Extra-marital sex is generally frowned upon in Egypt, although couples go ahead with it after obtaining informal marriages, and could lead to prostitution charges.
