More good news from Iraq

Well it seems that way to me:

Now that Saddam-era censorship of movies has lessened, movies with sex scenes and nudity are getting particularly popular in Iraq. Men between the ages of 17-45 are the keenest cinema-goers, although many Iraqis are not happy about these canges. One Baghdad resident complained, “Families can not go to the cinemas nowadays because the movies are immoral, and because the audiences are mostly drunk.”
