Muslim woman gives sex advice on Arab TV

By NADIA ABOU EL-MAGD
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER


CAIRO, Egypt -- Heba Kotb is a conservative Muslim, wears an Islamic head scarf, and goes on television once a week to talk - frankly and in great detail - about sex.

On her show, "Big Talk," Kotb answers questions from Muslims all over the Middle East about the most intimate bedroom issues with an openness that is shocking and revolutionary in a society where discussing the subject is taboo.

"How do I talk about these issues? Very seriously," the Egyptian sexologist says. "I put on a mask-like face and make sure I speak in the right tone of voice."

She also does it by talking about sex in an Islamic light, arguing that the faith is in favor of pleasure for both men and women, with one important caveat - that it be only in the context of marriage.

"I'm very proud of my religion," Kotb told The Associated Press in an interview at Cairo University, where she teaches forensic medicine. "My studies revealed to me more and more how Islam was ahead in all sexual matters ... I discovered that Islam understood sex long before the rest of the world."

For example, Islam "stresses the importance of foreplay," Kotb said, and she often stresses to listeners that women should also enjoy sex.

You would be amazed how much sex there is on Arab TV.  In Iraq, I saw a ton of Iraqi cable channels and I'd say about 1/3 of them were something of a sexual nature. Normally sex hotlines.

Nevertheless, I was shocked to see this on Iraqi/Arab TV.  I guess it's more common than what we would think.

It does make me wonder if Muslim women are more sexually liberated than American women behind closed doors...

Not just the women...the men are a lot more open too!  I have heard this more than once about the men, the women are for babies, the men are for pleasure!

Islamic fundamentalism never really triumphed in North Africa; the peak of violent fundamentalism in Egypt was in the 1980s and 1990s; however, if the country returned to democracy, a moderate Islamist party could win elections Turkish-style.

Yep, I often heard that concerning Muslim traditions, that are the fundies who wanna break it out.

Could be yes, but it seems that a marriage remains a huge thing, even in one of the most secularized Muslim country, Tunisia, where the western influence is strong.

I don't if it's because it would have changed in a few years, but someone from Tunisia with who I recently spoke told me that on satellite Arab networks there where a lot of western Hollywood stuffs, but, when it comes to a simple ...kiss on the mouth...then...*censored*... Scenes of kissing/love are cut, she told me, even those from the satellite networks of the most liberal places that have inter-Arab networks places like Dubai.

An interview of her:

Unluckily, might be me but the video is long to load.

Otherwise, for those, unlike me, who can get the language, the show:

"Muslim Woman Gives Sex Tips on Arab TV"

Not surprised by this at all, actually. Considering the birth rate in most Muslim countries, sex is probably pretty frequent.

Actually, IIRC, the Quran quite explicitly says that it is the requirement of both partners to please the other in marriage (and commands it right out of both partners, so it can't just be interpreted as a generic message).

you have to search for "muslim sex tips" for that.

I'm still constantly seeing guests reading this thread, so weird.

This thread has surpassed wikipedia's "Islamic views on anal sex" though on Google

Obviously she's not the only one breaking barriers:

Challenging Sex Taboos, With Help From the Koran

By ROBERT F. WORTH
Published: June 5, 2009


DUBAI, United Arab Emirates

WEDAD LOOTAH does not look like a sexual activist. A Muslim and a native Emirati, she wears a full-length black niqab — with only her brown eyes showing through narrow slits — and sprinkles her conversation with quotes from the Koran.

Yet she is also the author of what for the Middle East is an amazingly frank new book of erotic advice in which she celebrates the female orgasm, confronts taboo topics like homosexuality and urges Arabs to transcend the backward traditions that limit their sexual happiness.

The book, “Top Secret: Sexual Guidance for Married Couples,” is packed with vivid anecdotes from Ms. Lootah’s eight years as a marital counselor in Dubai’s main courthouse. It became an instant scandal after it was published in Arabic in the Emirates in January, drawing praise from some liberals and death threats from conservatives, who say she is guilty of blasphemy or worse.

Ms. Lootah, a strong-willed and talkative 45-year-old, is one of a small but growing number of Arabs pushing for more openness and education about sex. Unlike earlier generations of women who often couched their criticism in a Western language of female emancipation, Ms. Lootah and her peers are hard to dismiss as outsiders because they tend to be religious Muslims who root their message in the Koran.

Ms. Lootah, for instance, studied Islamic jurisprudence in college, not Western psychology, and her book is studded with religious references. She submitted the text to the Mufti of Dubai before publishing it, and he gave his approval (though he warned her that Arab audiences might not be ready for such a book, especially by a woman).

“People have said I was crazy, that I was straying from Islam, that I should be killed,” Ms. Lootah said. “Even my family ask why I must talk about this. I say: ‘These problems happen every day and should not be ignored. This is the reality we are living.’ ”

She is not a liberal by Western standards. One of the themes of her book is the danger of anal sex and homosexuality generally, not because of AIDS but because they are banned by the Koran. But her openness about the issue was itself a shock to many here.

The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

Actually, Muslims also go on the net.

Actually, there are a lot of youngs in the Muslim world.

Actually, their youngs are interested in the same things our youngs are.

Wink

Internet is a breath for youngs in the Muslim world, they exploit the limits that may be imposed to them in it here or there in the world the most they can.

The new example of this Emirati woman doesn't surprise me. And to me the most important to be noticed is the fact that she comes with Koran.
