Breaking news...

Or it was in January anyway. An Egyptian Islamic cleric, Rashad Hassan Khalil, a former dean of Al-Azhar University's faculty of Sharia has issued a fatwa that "being completely naked during the act of coitus annuls the marriage." Pause and reflect on the delicious insanity conjured up by that. At least other Egyptian clerics take a more balanced and realistic view of life within a loving and tender relationship.

Al-Azhar's fatwa committee chairman Abdullah Megawar argued that married couples could see each other naked but should not look at each other's genitalia and suggested they cover up with a blanket during sex.

So - is it OK if she keeps her stockings on and he wears his socks? (answer: it is never Ok to wear socks in bed. Ever ever ever.)

UPDATE: It is, however, perfectly permissable to have a threesome, provided you're all married to each other anyway. Cheers to Meph in the comments.

The whole fatwa market is hardly taken seriously anymore. There is generally a middle ground of common sense, fatwa extrapolations are rather simplistic as can be illustrated here http://www.aqoul.com/archives/2005/10/threesomes_hala.php
