Being on holiday does something weird to the mind of the Brits…. especially when they’re holidaying in Europe. Not only do they shout in English at the Spanish/French/Italians thinking it works as some kind of translation tool, but they also seem to lose their sexual inhibitions.
Spain’s a fun place to go clubbing for a week, there are so many Brits there it’s a bit like raving at home but with constant sunshine and a fabulous beach. But many a times I’ve ended up chilling at night on a beach after clubbing, only to then have a couple of Brits start having sex in the sand in front of everyone. Or there was the time when it happened on a sun lounger next to a friend of mine…. or the time when a bar we were in suddenly turned into one huge swingers club (so we made a swift exit).
It annoys the Spanish loads (well not the men so much)… but they only have to put up with it for a few months a year, then their lives go back to normal. British girls are known for their â€” shall we say â€” loose morals on the Med. Mostly because they drink too much and that’s when trouble starts.
But the thing is that the Europeans are used to it and turn a blind eye. Not so in other holiday destinations like Dubai, where two Brits have been arrested and face up to six years in jail after being caught at it on a beach. Vince Acors (known as “Vince Charming” cos of his way with the ladies â€” I kid you not), was on a business trip last week and met Michelle Palmer. They got absolutely trolleyed, and ended up doing it on the beach â€” but got caught, and arrested. You see the problem isn’t so much that they were getting busy on the beach, it was because they’re not married…
Dubai’s beautiful, and a great holiday destination. But I suspect fewer Brits will be holidaying there in the future. No sex on the beach?! Well that’s just not British.
