Videos and photographs showing the naked women, lined up on a balcony while being filmed in Dubai’s upscale Marina neighbourhood, emerged on social media on Saturday evening.
State-linked newspaper The National reported it appeared to be a publicity stunt, without elaborating.
Dubai police said those arrested over the indecent video have been referred to public prosecutors.
“Such unacceptable behaviours do not reflect the values and ethics of Emirati society,” said police in a statement.
The United Arab Emirates has strict moral rules. They are especially concerned with appearance.
