Look at this sexy man. Are you suddenly overcome with the desire to kiss him? Perhaps even throw your underpants at him? If so, just be sure you're not in Sri Lanka.

"I don't advocate that these uncivilized women who removed their brassieres should be beaten with toxic stingray tails, but those who organized such an event should be," he said.

"I would like to emphasize that such indecent concerts should not be given approval to be held in Sri Lanka again," he said, according to local paper Daily Mirror.

According to the BBC, whipping someone with toxic stingray tails is a popular expression in Sri Lanka, referring back to an ancient medieval punishment.

Can you blame Enrique's fans, though? I MEAN, LOOK AT THIS.
