I read the article written by our so-called compatriot, Mr.Siamak Baniameri
of Kissing". I was tremendously shocked because all I found in
his article was an exaggeration about himself and other things that are
closely related to him, like his father, and on the other hand, beating
what can be considered as Iranian traditions.
Personally, and like many other Iranians, I don't like kissing men on
their checks, but I have found it a part of our culture and our greetings
that should be accepted. What you have published at your website is just
obsessions and preoccupations of a narcissistic man that cannot be considered
I know that many foreigners who are interested in different things related
to Iranians, spouses of Iranians and tourists who like to travel to Iran
check your website in order to become more familiar with our rich culture,
but you have introduced Iranian men as old-fashioned JAAHELS.
What you have published is a word salad and I really cannot find a reason
for writing and publishing this article. I highly recommend the writer
to visit a psychiatrist and consult him about his sexual obsessions.
