I AM fascinated by books with insane titles. And until last week, Birth Control is Sinful in the Christian Marriages and also Robbing God of Priesthood Children!!: Many False Christ Marriages are Living on Birth Control and Now Leading the American Church Wealth! by Ms Eliyzabeth Yanne Strong-Anderson, topped my list of favourites. It’s on sale in paperback at Amazon for $130.98!
But this “gift” to the world of literature by the clearly bonkers Ms Strong-Anderson has been replaced by the intriguingly titled Islamic Sex, Fighting Jews to Return Islamic Sex to the World, which has run into a spot of bother with the censors in Malaysia following its publication by the Muslim Obedient Wife Club.
The club caused a stir earlier this year by calling on women to be “whores in bed” to prevent their men from straying and pursuing divorce.
Malaysian media reports have said the book suggests Muslim husbands should have sex with all their wives “simultaneously”.
One chapter, How Sex Becomes Worship, reportedly contains unusually explicit sexual descriptions for a Malaysian publication, such as a tutorial on breast-fondling.
Open discussion of sex is frowned upon in Malaysia, which regularly bans books deemed to be obscene or offensive to Islam.
Club organisers insist that the book is exclusively for its members and was not intended for general distribution and thus should not be banned.
OWC national chairman in Malaysia Fauziah Ariffin claimed in a press conference:
We are disappointed with those who distributed the book without our knowledge …
She then tackled the controversial issue of seks serentak (simultaneous sex):
Dr Azlina Jamaluddin, a dentist and OWC leader, said it was not something a common person could comprehend.
Simultaneous does not mean that on the bed there is one man and four women. When a man has reached a high level of spirituality, his wali (spiritual guardian) can come in contact with his wives wherever they are. Maybe one wife is in Ipoh, another in Kuala Lumpur, in Singapore or in Johor but he can ‘come’ to his wife simultaneously. That is the wonder of spiritual sex.
To you there might be no logic to what we are saying. But when Prophet Noah built an ark on a mountain at that time there was no logic in what he was doing.
Mohd Rasidi, a male member of the group, claimed that what was taught in the book was “high level” sex.
It is PhD-level.
Hatijah , 57, author of the book, elaborated, saying the the club purposely did not sell the book to non-members because the public would not be able to comprehend it. And, quoting the Koran, she went deeply into the theory of “spiritual sex”. Here are some of Hatijah’s insights on sex.
• If your spirit is pure you can have sex with your wife even though you are abroad fighting a war.
• God allows sex sports. And to be good in sex you need practice.
• Orgasm releases a pain-killer and helps with fever. But don’t have affairs on the pretext of curing your fever.
• Orgasm prevents wrinkles.
• Sex can make you younger. Jogging can be replaced by ‘sexercise’.
• Only animals have sex without mukadimah (foreplay).
• It is important for a woman’s breasts to be sucked in order to prevent breast cancer.
Unfazed by the fuss caused by Islamic Sex, Fighting Jews to Return Islamic Sex to the World, Hatijah said she planned a follow-up:
The first book revealed 20 percent (sex knowledge). But the second book will reveal 100 percent. But we will make sure the public will not get their hands on this book about heaven on earth.
Meanwhile, titles like Call Me Slut!, Take Me Here!, Take Me Now!, Sluts’ Boarding School and Lawyer’s Whore have left the Catholic Church with egg all over its face.
According to this report, Germany’s biggest Catholic-owned publishing house – Weltbild – has been rocked by disclosures that it has been selling thousands of pornographic novels with the full assent of the country’s leading bishops.
But the bishops are now claiming that that “a filtering system failure” at the publishing house had allowed the books to stray on to the market, and said in a statement:
We will put a stop to the distribution of possibly pornographic content in future.
