The Muslimah S*x Manual: A Halal Guide to Mind-Blowing S*x was published just last week, but has already sent shockwaves through the community.
Its author, who has chosen to stay anonymous but goes by the alias Umm Muladhat, gives Muslim women candid advice on everything from kissing to the best sexual positions.
But the book’s main message, she has said, is that women can take the lead in their relationships with their husbands.
‘I saw many Muslim women were getting married with no real avenue for learning about sex,’ she told the Guardian.
‘Couples knew “penis into vagina”, but little on how to spice up their sex life. Different positions, different things to try in bed – it’s all absent in contemporary Islamic literature.
‘For those in the west, certain things permeate through osmosis, so women have heard about BDSM and doggy style, but only in a vague sense.’
Shaista Gohir, chair of the Muslim Women’s Network UK, praised Muladhat’s book for getting women ‘talking about s*x’.
‘Guilt associated with sex is drummed into women from childhood,’ Gohir told the paper.
‘It’s portrayed as something dirty where women’s sexuality is often controlled. This does result in women going into marriages not having the confidence to say “I am not enjoying this” or “I want this”.
