Sex Education

Apr 9th, 2007, in Society, by

The Arabs taught Europeans how to have sex.

According to Fauziah Al-Dare, a sex education expert from Kuwait who is a lecturer at the University of York, UK, the Arab or Islamic world taught the West most of the things it knows, even including sex education.

In the time of Arab dominance of the Islamic world, before the later period of Ottoman-Turkish dominance, almost all of the world's knowledge was to be found in the middle east. Europe knew little of medicine, chemistry, physics, astronomy, politics, psychology, and various other disciplines and had to learn it from the Arabs, she says.


The Perfumed Garden of Sheikh Nefzaoui, containing some interesting chapters such as "Prescriptions for Increasing the Dimensions of Small Members and for Making Them Splendid" and "Of Things that Take Away the Bad Smell from the Armpit and Sexual Parts of Women and Contract the Latter".

Of quality information on sex Fauziah Al-Dare says:

Sex education also came from the Arabs. The proof of this is that in 1865 the English Senate [House of Lords] banned the translating of Arabic works on sex education.

There was more proof. In 1850 an Arabic text on sex was found in France and was thereafter translated into French. The French apparently needed some Arab guidance on sexual matters.

She said Islam was the best religion in terms of its treatment of human sexuality and sex education. In a discussion on television in Kuwait the subject of penis length came up, which caused a mini-furore in the country, but Fauziah said talk of such things was within the bounds of Islamic law. Fauziah added that penis length was no issue in terms of sexual satisfaction. antara

  1. Wow, interesting article. So, most of the things that west people know about sex actually came from Arabs? Cool. But too bad Arabs are going down right now, and I bet they’re bad in bed too. Hehe.

    I agree that sex education is part of Islam and that is why this religion is so amazing. We Muslims are just too stupid and we are right now too afraid to explore depeer knowledge in Koran. One of the reasons is because Muslims in third world countries depend on their clerics too much! We ask them for every single problem that we have, and most of the clerics we have are so old-fashioned. They don’t even use email or internet. Too bad.

    It was believed (by the Muslims), that Quran (Koran) contains every information you need about anything. Just dig in.
    Why are these precious knowledge at the end explored by the Westerns (non-Muslims), not by the Arabs (Muslims) them-selves?
    Muslims must be BIG, BIG, BIG hearted to admit that they were too afraid to came out of their comfort zone, and lullabied by the present conditions they’re in. In short lazy, lack of initiatives and also lacking the sense of competition. Of course not all Muslims acts like this, but most Muslims (including me, sometimes), yes.

    About the old-fashioned clerics. What makes them old-fashioned? In our beloved country nowdays, there are plenty udztad those are pretty modern. A’a Gym, who happened to sunk down lately, is an example of modern udztad. These days, to spread out religious teachings, udztad just ought to be open-minded, but still walking on the basic path of Islam. If the teaching of Islam is said to be flexible through-out time and eras, why can’t the udztad (and clerics in general) be flexible too. They’re supposed to be partner for us discussing things from the religion and religious point of view.

    What’s true is true. Egypt (astrology), Greece (logos – logic), Rome (law), China (gun powder) and now Arabs as well (sex) have been identified as our testators – we really are in trouble.

    Its a nice theory but…

    Well actually the roman poet Ovid wrote 3 books on sex some 600 years before Islam. It may be more accurate to say that Europeans re-discovered sex education from the Arabs along with many other subjects lost during the dark ages. It should also be remembered that Victorian England was quite prudish – not surprising that books that dealt frankly with sex were proscribed.

    Cheers

    I want to share from my christian perspective, Sex not only something, but it’s part in God will. It’s happened as communal balance, not only to preserve but to serve God. Sex describe human relation human to human and human relation to their creator. In simple meaning sex is duty, vision, and relationship.

    Not only the roman poet Ovid wrote 3 books on sex some 600 years before Islam.
    Just like mathematics, astronomy, even the Bible, it now seems the Arab and Islamic world also plagiarized sex education and pretend it was their invention. Maybe someone should remind Ms. Fauziah Al-dare that 2 centuries before the rise of Islam India had already its Kama-sutra, the most famous book on sex education ever written.
    These Islamist efforts at self-glorification are utterly pathetic.

    “It should also be remembered that Victorian England was quite prudish – not surprising that books that dealt frankly with sex were proscribed. ” Yes but it was also a time when we Brits conquered a third of the world using great brutality, including rape to control the populace that we had overcome. How otherwise did we become so wealthy. A tiny country with few natural resources except extreme sexual frustration that persuaded many men to go and conquer without concern for human rights. The prospect of having sexual access to the “little brown people” who are dying to have unsolicited sex enforced upon them, motivated these frustrated souls to kill and steal the wealth of foreign lands, in order to slake their lust and get rich.

    Something repeated through out history by all races and colors. All of course fully justified by religion or totally specious justifications. How hypocritical!
