Islam and sexual techniques

''This is a sub-article of Sexuality in Islam.

Mutual masturbation

Muslim jurists state that mutual masturbation that culminates in orgasm for both is permissible and even bears merit for both parties.

Coitus more ferarum

Coitus more ferarum ("doggy style") is permissable, as affirmed by several Hadith and interpretations of the verse: "Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will; but do some good act for your souls beforehand; and fear God. And know that ye are to meet Him (in the Hereafter), and give (these) good tidings to those who believe. (The Noble Quran, 2:223)"

Anal intercourse

All Muslim scholars have a stongly negative view of anal intercourse.

Sunni Yusuf al-Qaradawi, a contemporary Sunni Muslim scholar, states that anal sex is prohibited. A wife must abstain from it should her husband demand it, and may seek divorce over it if her husband persists or tries to force her,When Husband Insists on Anal Sex with His Wife - - Ask The Scholar as the act is forbidden in the Islamic marriage contract. The act in itself, however, doesn't nullify the marriage, and the wife must seek divorce in order to separate from the husband. Anal Sex with the Wife: Does It Nullify Marriage? - - Ask The Scholar

Muslim scholars justify the prohibition on the basis of the Quranic verse 2:223, saying that it commands intercourse only in the vagina (which will lead to the birth of children). the vaginal interocurse may be in any manner the couple wishes, that is, from behind or from the front, sitting or with the wife lying on her back or on her side.
