Law Allowing Sex With Dead Wives Is Utterly Abominable

sex with dead wifeHere's something that will ruin a perfectly pleasant Friday evening. Apparently, there's a draft of a law in Egypt that would make it perfectly legal for a man to have sex with his deceased wife for up to six hours after her death. Oh my. A little postmortem rendezvous never hurt anybody, right? Nothing like a sex with a dead person, that's what I always say.

The "thinking" and "rationale" behind the law is that man and wife will be together in heaven later on, so really, what's the difference? It's basically the same as two spirits getting it on in the clouds. Except ... that it isn't. It isn't like that at all. This 'Farewll Intercourse' law, if it's real, is disgusting.

To be fair, wives are also allowed to have sex with their dead husbands, but come on. Like that's ever going to happen. That would take a Popsicle stick, some glue, and a lot of determination to make that even remotely possible. It's basically a non-starter, and totally unreasonable to suggest that women have the same right as men in this regard.

But, you know, that's probably over-thinking it and it's giving this idea too much credit. It's a law that allows you to rape a dead person. It's insane and unfair on all levels. No nit-picking about who has it worse is really needed.

Understandably, Egyptian politicians and civilians alike are dumb-founded by the proposed law and hopefully their voices and dissent will be enough to push this thing into a deep, dark hole where it can never rear its ugly head again. To say this law is an embarrassment is an understatement. It's completely, totally and utterly fucked up. (Pardon my French.)

There is a smidgen of hope, though. Some say this story is baloney. Please, please let it be fake. Because as soon as necrophilia becomes legal, who knows what will follow.

What do you think?

Lol sorry. Not a spelling nazi usually, but I couldn't help it.

Yes. I think it's a stupid law. I don't know really if I'll give a damn what someone does with me when I'm dead (provided I don't have to watch it or something lol) but really, isn't that the very definition of rape? They can't consent if they are dead. That's just ridiculous. And if it doesn't matter, because they "will be in heaven together anyway" then why is there only 6 hours allowed for it.

But for the record, yes a woman could technically mate with her deceased husband. I forget the term for it, but if they are laying face down, then the blood could pool down there and cause an erection. Your welcome for that tmi :D

They're dead.

If they wanna be nasty, and put their weiner in a dead thing, fine. I doubt the corpse will care.

Let be completely ridiculious here and say that wives should have the choice while living, to sign and allow it after death.

And it should only be legal to poke it into a corpse that was an adult when it was alive.


This would bother me if someone I knew did it, but since as far as I know, none of my friends/family are necropheliacs, I only laugh

Parentalrights1-but neither does a blow up doll. If you think about it, after death, you're really no different than a blow up doll. Except you void your bowels and fart more

This is hilarious to me because my hubby has joked about this. I don't think he actually could do it, but he has my permission lmao.

This is so silly, I love how people get worked up about it.

So, Egypt's government has so few real problems that they can debate over corpse sex. Right.

I'm not the most PC person around here, not exactly thrilled about the Islamic religion. I have lived in the middle east for decades, I am very acquainted with Islam, just chose not to convert (hence the "K" in my name lol). This practice violates everything I know about Islam. For now, I have to call BS.
