Washington: An author has been hailed as the Muslim answer to Belle De Jour, after penning the first ever halal sex manual for women.
The US-born author who goes by the pen name Umm Muladhat wrote The Muslimah Sex Manual: A Halal Guide to Mind Blowing Sex, which was released last week.
The book was inspired by a newlywed acquaintance who asked her to share some tips as – aside from being aware of the mechanics of lovemaking – she had no idea what to do with her husband in bed.
‘I put an emphasis on having sex only with your spouse, but having the full range of sexual experiences with that spouse,’ Umm told The Observer.
‘Islamically, there’s an emphasis on enjoying physical relationships within the context of marriage, not just for procreation. It is the wife’s right that her husband satisfy her sexually.’
The no-holds barred tome includes chapters on everything from ‘How to be a freak in bed’ to BDSM and ‘Forced sex fantasies’.
On her website, Umm explains that her journey to writing the book started two years ago when an acquaintance admitted to her she was struggling during the first few months of her marriage.
‘Her sex life was horrible. In fact, it was fast becoming non-existent. She had been a model Muslimah her entire life. Before marriage, she had never so much as held a non-mahram’s hand, let alone become physically intimate with one,’ Umm explained on her website.
