Sexually empowered women have long existed in Islam but their stories are often untold. Female sex experts and pleasure-positive Muslim women were often cited in erotic Arabic literature dating back to the ninth century. According to early African and Arab writers, feminine women have greater desire and pleasure than men. The medieval manuals emphasised the physical needs of women and the importance of emotional intimacy for a fulfilling marital relationship. Natural aphrodisiacs and sensual practices were recommended to improve connection and sexual satisfaction. Drawing upon ancient erotica and contemporary research, this book provides a cross-cultural guide for God-conscious women to overcome desire problems and achieve sexual compatibility with a spouse. The book presents stories of 40 sexually empowered Muslim women in history including religious scholars, poets, activists, anti-FGM campaigners, sex educators, and historical figures.
