Daniel Pipes' blog has a roundup of "Strange Sex Stories from the Muslim World". Scroll down for the individual stories. He writes
The deepest differences between Muslims and Westerners concern not politics but sexuality. Each side has a long history of looking at the other's sexual mores with a mixture of astonishment and disgust. Here are some examples from the Muslim side of the divide (in reverse chronological order) that have me, for one, shaking my head:
  • Couple forced to divorce because of husband's "inferior" tribal lineage
  • Gang-rape victim sentenced to 100 lashes for adultery
  • Male blackmail of female in Saudi ArabiaWhen the ancient Saudi practice of veiling women meets the contemporary use of camera-equipped mobile phones, a curious by-product has emerged, that of young men threatening to go public with pictures of young women. As Fatima Sidiya documents, a rash of such cases have occurred in the last six months.
  • Saudi 8-year-old girl must await puberty to divorce
  • Jordanian women agree to being beatenA survey conducted for unnamed United Nations agencies and including nearly 15,000 Jordanian families and 11,000 married women, aged mostly between 15 to 49 years old, found that around 20 percent of the women approve being beaten by their husbands to be disciplined.

  • Indonesian Muslim imam charged for sex with a 12-year-old wife
  • Male salesmen at Saudi lingerie shops
  • Nigerian imam has 86 wives
  • Saudi marriage officiant permits one-year-old girls to be married
  • [Vdare.com note: These marriages are only on paper, obviously. The husbands are only allowed to consummate the marriage when the "wife" reaches the age of nine.]
  • Saudi imam details heavenly sexual delights
  • Yemeni court grants an 8-year-old girl divorce
  • Saudi tribal custom forbid husband ever seeing his wife's face
Oh, yes, and all of these are taking place overseas. But if you're in country that's been colonized by Muslims, some of it may be taking place near you.
