Public displays of affection between a male and a female, such as kissing, is not considered appropriate and should be avoided. You may notice Moroccan men walking or standing holding hands, this is normal between good friends and does not indicate anything beyond platonic friendship. Morocco has laws relating to those things that are, “an act of aggression against Moroccan Muslim society and people” – kissing in public falls into this category. The prohibitions specifically relate to unmarried couples. With that being said these laws are rarely enforced, and when they are it is typically only between Moroccan couples, not foreigners. If you are a foreign couple visiting and you kiss, no one is likely going to say anything to you – kissing in Morocco is not illegal. However, if one partner is Moroccan, you may face additional scrutiny. While you might not get in trouble, it is highly frowned on to kiss or fondle each other in public. Moroccan society is changing however, it is still conservative in many ways. One of those is when it comes to affection in public. Overall the best advice is keep it to a bare minimum.
