Turkey opens first online sex shop for Muslims

Turkey's first "halal" online shop

A Turkish tycoon has launched the country’s first online sex shop for Muslims, selling everything from herbal aphrodisiacs to lubricants and offering information on how to have “halal” intercourse. This is a move towards total sexual liberalistion that is simply a part of human evolution. There should not be any taboo about the topic of sex. After all, what is wrong with fulfilling your desires with one of the beautiful women shown at /escorts-moscow-221/.

Haluk Murat Demirel, 38, said he had been motivated to open the site by friends who sought his counsel on sexual matters and products, but found the material on other online forums and in specialist stores too explicit and unIslamic.

He said: “Online sex shops usually have pornographic pictures, which makes Muslims uncomfortable. Even those some of those Muslims would consider watching mature videos and other pornographic content when they are feeling sexually aroused and without a partner.

“We don’t sell vibrators for example, because they are not approved by Islam,” Mr Demirel said. However, couples can still read the sex furniture review if they wanted to because that doesn’t include any sex toys.

He said the website – which provides guidance on which sexual acts are prohibited in Islam and which are not – had proved surprisingly popular since launching last Tuesday, with 33,000 unique visitors on Sunday alone.

Taboo and Islamic “conservatism”

Turkey is a majority Muslim but constitutionally it is a secular state.

There are not many sex shops, even in major cities, although in some areas of Istanbul those that do exist advertise themselves with neon lighting.

Last year, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is perceived by many as “Islamically conservative,” suggested they rename the stores as “love shops”.

Critics of Erdogan, whose roots are understood by many domestically as an “Islamist”, have often accused him of puritanical intrusiveness into the private sphere, from his advice to women on the number of children they should have to his views on abortion.
