Oh Sodomy! : The Eternal Erections of Muslim Martyrs!
Modern apologists of Islam try to downplay the evident materialism and sexual implications of such descriptions, but, as the Encyclopaedia of Islam says, even orthodox Muslim theologians such as al Ghazali (died 1111 AD) and Al-Ash'ari (died 935 AD) have "admitted sensual pleasures into paradise".
The sensual pleasures are graphically elaborated by Al-Suyuti (died 1505 AD), Quranic commentator and polymath. He wrote:
"Each time we sleep with a houri we find her virgin...
Besides, the penis of the Elected never softens.
The erection is eternal;
...the sensation that you feel each time you make love is utterly delicious and out of this world and were you to experience it in this world you would faint. Each chosen one [ie Muslim] will marry seventy [sic] houris, besides the women he married on earth, and all will have appetising vaginas."
Homosexuality was, and is, widely practised in Islamic countries. To please the homosexuals among his followers, Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah, promised them pre-pubescent boys in Paradise. So after committing plunder, looting, rape and murder in this life, the followers of Islam will be "rewarded" by untouched virginal youths who are fresh like pearls.
(QURAN 52:24): "And there will go round boy-servants of theirs, to serve them as if they were preserved pearls."
(QURAN 56:17): "They will be served by immortal boys."
(QURAN 76:19): "And round about them will (serve) boys of everlasting youth. If you see them, you would think them scattered pearls."
It is common in Arabic poetry to glorify homosexuality, take their famous poet Abu Nuwas:
O the joy of sodomy! So now be sodomites, you Arabs. Turn not away from it-- therein is wondrous pleasure. Take some coy lad with kiss-curls twisting on his temple and ride as he stands like some gazelle standing to her mate. A lad whom all can see girt with sword and belt not like your whore who has to go veiled. Make for smooth-faced boys and do your very best to mount them, for women are the mounts of the devils
