Passion under wraps

Imams say the darndest things:
A curious religious debate is raging in Egypt. The question is: should you keep your clothes on when having sex?

It began when Dr Rashad Khalil, an expert on Islamic law from al-Azhar university in Cairo warned that being completely naked during intercourse invalidates a marriage. His ruling was promptly dismissed by other scholars, including one who argued that "anything that can bring spouses closer to each other" should be permitted.

Another religious scholar suggested it was OK for married couples to see each other naked as long as they don't look at the genitals. To avoid problems in that area, he recommended having sex under a blanket.

Apart from visible naked sex, masturbation is also considered a deviant practice by many Muslim clerics, since we all know it makes you blind, damages your spine and weakens the "cerebral glands". Oh, and be very careful to only administer the kiss of life with "neither lust nor pleasure".

Surprisingly, most Muslim scholars fall to the left of the Catholic church on the contraception question. It's an "iffy" rather than a "no-no". Oh, and for Shias, no sex with prostitutes for you...unless you get a "temporary marriage" first.

Obviously that's why Allah made Vegas.
