I don't think that anything about this holiday has anything to do with sexual repression in Saudi, it has to do with conforming to western values and western ways that are in opposition to Islamic teaching. They don't do Christmas, either. Or Halloween.
Considering the amount of children around here, I would not say that Muslim people are sexually repressed. They value chastity and morality and in Arab nations, they seem to practice what they preach-mostly. There are issues here, too. I think there are more issues with drugs and alcohol at this point, but it will be changing the more the society integrates with western society. Yikes.
I love open sexuality and drugs and alcohol, and my wife to be in a bikini.... yeah, a string bikini so she feels sexy walking down the beach while everyone checks out her ass as we walk by, and to be able to do it without her getting arrested for indecent exposure. I also enjoy being able to celebrate any holiday/religion that I want, without someone telling me I can't. Screw the Saudis. Only thing they ever did for us was fill my gas tank and turn a blind eye while we blew everything up around them.
