A (rather brave) Bahraini woman has opened the Gulf’s first sex shop. Khadija Ahmed is adamant that she is performing a public duty and is saving people’s marriages by spicing up things in the bedroom.

She has fallen afoul of the law, however, after insulting a customs official as she was importing some of her sex aids and games. What a truly pathetic man that must have been to prosecute someone because he was offended. Obviously enough customs are less than thrilled with the products that she is importing (though I bet most of are desperately curious to visit her shop).

This comes not long after an entrepreneurial Muslim opened a sex shop in Amsterdam

The first Muslim sex-shop 6, April 2010

Whilst I realise that I’ve stumbled upon this story uncomfortably close to April Fool’s Day, it appears that a Muslim Sex Shop – El Asira – has opened – where else? – in Holland. The goal of the shop is to offer sex aids and other erotica that does not ‘offend Shaira law’. Good luck to them.

The shop does not contain pornography or other…err…more physical sexual aids. Instead, through separate entrances, men and women can browse oils, lubricants and a range of supposedly aphrodisiac – and halal – pills.

Assuming that this story is real, whilst the owner may well seek to avoid haram pornography and the like and the Prophet himself may well have given ‘advice about sex in marriage’ I still can’t see how this venture can end happily.
