Obedient Wives Club revealed that wives could only satisfy 10 percent of what their husbands wanted

Source:Malaysiakini news, “Obedient Wives Club courts controversy with sex guide”

The Obedient Wives Club (OWC) is once again courting controversy – this time with its latest publication of a 115-page sex guide, says a news report in Berita Harian.
According to the report, the title of the book itself is controversial: Seks Islam, perangi Yahudi untuk kembalikan seks Islam kepada dunia (Islamic Sex, fighting against Jews to return Islamic sex to the world).

With a picture of outlawed Al-Arqam leader, the late Asaari Muhammad, on the cover, the book is intended to be a guide for newlyweds and wives on how to treat their husbands when in bed, Berita Harian says.

At least one chapter in the book carries detailed information on sexual acts.

The foreword in the book, the report says, explains that research by OWC revealed that wives could only satisfy 10 percent of what their husbands wanted.

The OWC was launched on June 4 and courted controversy immediately when its vice-president, Rohaya Mohamad (left), made remarks that were deemed denigrating to women.

“If the wives need our help, we can train them on sexually satisfying positions. It is important to be a good sexual worker so that the husbands do not go to prostitutes,” Rohaya was quoted as saying.

The comments invited immediate condemnation from both feminist groups as well as Islamic groups, which shot down the notion of blind
obedience
in Islam.

    Good work Jakim: Jakim mulls action against OWC over sex guide @ http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/178530
    The Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim) is mulling action against the Obedient Wives Club (OWC) for its recently published 115-page sex guide.

    “We will investigate the contents of the book and see how far action can be taken, including against the OWC which is led by Hatijah Aam,” said Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department in charge of religious affairs Jamil Khir Baharom (left) in a Berita Harian report today.

    The report also said that Jakim will attempt to block the distribution of the controversial book.

    The discussion of intimate sex between spouses is legal but the book presents it in an indecent way that may attract negative perception, Khir was quoted as saying.

    The book is controversially entitled: Seks Islam, perangi Yahudi untuk kembalikan seks Islam kepada dunia (Islamic Sex, fighting against Jews to return Islamic sex to the world).

    The book has a picture of outlawed Al-Arqam leader, the late Asaari Muhammad, on its cover and at least one chapter in the book carries detailed information on sexual acts.

    This is not the first time the OWC has attracted controversy, with its vice-president Rohaya Mohamad making remarks that were deemed denigrating to women during the clubs’s launch on June 4.

    OWC sex book a cheap stunt, say women’s groups By WONG PEK MEI @ http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2011/10/14/nation/9697302&sec=nation
    PETALING JAYA: Women’s groups have hit out at the Obedient Wives Club’ for its “explicit sex book” which called on a Muslim husband to have joint sex with all his spouses.

    Sisters in Islam (SIS) acting executive director Ratna Osman called it a “cheap stunt” to get its name in the local and international media spotlight.

    She said the group failed to look at the demands of society, which called for gender equality and progress in education.

    “Apart from talking about a woman’s subjugation to her husband and how to give him the best sex, they do not have anything concrete to contribute to society when we are facing many problems,” she said.

    The 115-page book titled Seks Islam, Perangi Yahudi untuk Kembalikan Seks Islam kepada Dunia (Islamic Sex, fighting Jews to return Islamic sex to the world) had, among others, encouraged Muslim husbands to have sex simultaneously with their wives.

    The Obedient Wives Club was formed by Global Ikhwan Sdn Bhd, an organisation founded by former members of the banned Al-Arqam.

    Ratna stressed that “nowhere in the Quran does it talk about marriage as just about sex and serving the husband as a master. It talks about love for one another, about kindness to each other.”

    She questioned the source of the book, which quoted research claiming that women only gave their husbands 10% of what they wanted from their wives’ bodies.

    Ratna said SIS research showed that 64.8% of first wives said they were not informed when their husbands took another wife, thus leading to a feeling of betrayal and pain, and 53% of them cited an increase in domestic violence.

    “How would OWC respond to this in their mission to teach good sex? Will OWC’s book help these women in their problems?” Ratna asked.

    All Women’s Action Society programme manager Betty Yeoh said “it takes two hands to clap” and that both spouses must play their part in a marriage.

    Empower executive director Maria Chin Abdullah said the stand by Obedient Wives Club was “a slap in the face to women”.

    “Women have contributed greatly to the nation but they (OWC) have diminished us to being mere sex objects,” she said.

    Women’s Aid Organisation (WAO) executive director Ivy Josiah said the book was a “tawdry way” by the club to raise its profile.

    However, she did not believe the book should be banned as people were entitled to their own opinion.

    The Islamic Development Department (Jakim) said it would restrict the distribution of the book, which it viewed as “shameful” and “nonsensical”.

    Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom said they would investigate the contents of the book.

    Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil said the ministry believed that the club and what it stood for had undermined the important gains made towards gender equality in Malaysia.

    “Should this publication be in contravention of the law whether civil or syariah, then the law here will take its course,” she said.

    Leaders of the club could not be reached for comment.

    Easy, change polygamy to monogamy. Then you can talk about good sexual life in a marriage.
