At the Intersection of Islam and Sexuality
The Western World has become mostly aware of the existence of the dietary considerations and restrictions that Muslims adhere to and call the inclusive foods and culinary practices “Halal.” But halal is an Arabic word that simpy means permissible, and there is a lot more to what goes and what doesn’t in Islam than what you eat. What of the romantically aspirant Muslim couple’s bedroom life?
There are precious few taboos with regards to sexuality in Islam. So few, they can be counted on the fingers of a single hand:
- No Anal Sex. Sex in Islam is about mutual enjoyment and procreation both. Anal sex is considered a deviance that denies Muslim couples both these things and runs all sorts of risks of infection and inflicting lasting harm to your beloved.
- No penetrative toys. Allah has given us all we need to make things work as “part of our plumbing” so to speak. Using toys denies one partner the physical enjoyment aspect of sex, whilst Islam, as we said, is all about mutual appreciation, enjoyment, and celebration of ours and our partners’ bodies. Toys that are the frosting on the figurative cake though- those you can definitely use. The idea is to enhance what’s already there and not replace it.
- No selfish stimulation. Whatever you to yourself or your partner should immediately work to raise both your states of sexual arousal. That means no “doing your own thing” while they do theirs.
- No lasting physical harm. That’s not to say that if it’s both your thing to get rough and rowdy that you can’t do that, just that our bodies are an immense bequeathment from Allah that deserve better than to be mutilated. With all of these “uh-uhs” it might seem like there’s little if any room for experimentation or adventurousness left in the Islamic bedroom, but nothing could be further away from the truth. With a bit of creativity and imagination, there’s so much fun and mutual gratification to be had without crossing any unsavory lines. Creativity and imagination that we, at Halal Bedroom, would be absolutely ecstatic to show you.
Another big rift between the existing world of Islamic sexual gratification and its Western counterpart: the packaging. You know the saying “sex sells?” Have you looked at the packaging of a sex toy lately? Debasing.
Objectifying. Wanton and Crude. The Western world want us to leave sapience at the door and give into our primal urges. To sell us on the unsavory and fallacious pretext that sex should be something “dirty,” “naughty,” or “sinful.”
Whilst in Islam it’s all about fun. Pleasure. Enjoyment. Romance. We at Halal Bedroom are here to change that status quo to something a bit more befitting of the dignity of our faith. We work closely with manufacturers, vendors, and fulfillment centers to rework and rebrand existing toys or even think up and actualize entirely new ones that are 100% Islamic faith compliant.
We’re so keen on this wholesome, elevated image of mutual enjoyment that, with the exception of some descriptive text inserts and chaste imagery, is completely suitable for work.
