Women are Aroused by Cucumbers and Carrots According to an Islamic Cleric

Muslim, sex, vegetables, Cleric, IslamA Muslim Cleric in Europe has stated that cucumbers and carrots prompt women to have seedy sexual thoughts and that they should therefore be banned from touching them.

Women should be banned from touching cucumbers, carrots, bananas, and zucchinis, says a European Muslim cleric, simply because they resemble the male penis and could prompt women to think of sex.

The Sheikh whose name has not been revealed, according to Bikya Masr, has suggested that women who need to cook with these ingredients should have the men in the family cut them up into small pieces. This shape-shift will reportedly banish all sexual thoughts from women’s minds.

Asked how they should avoid wanton thoughts while shopping for groceries, the cleric retorted that this is between “them and God.” Does this mean that men should stay away from pomegranates and peaches?

    I always get so horny when I see a cucumber!!!! No but seriously, I think this cleric has a deep secret sexual frustration. He should consider acknowledging his true sexual preference!

    Capricorn. But I won’t go into this in mixed company.

    What a joke… are you serious ????? Ive been living in K.S.A for the past 5 years and i have never heard of this “Fatwa”. Must be an anti-vegetables cleric ! or maybe he is ashamed of his manhood size compared to the vegs…lol 🙂

    Clerics of all religions have always found ways to set limitations on women, including where they are free to go and how they may dress. This ridiculous ruling is just another way of letting women know that men think they have all the power and will use it try to keep women under their thumb.

    This is unrealistic,this is just a framed lie to stop muslim women from eating carrot and cucumbers.It is halal!!the thought of these looking like manhood is the last thing that will ever occur to a sane woman.this is deceitful sisters!they want to make halal haram for us.They dnt look alike!!!The creator has made it distinguished!!!

      It is probably just an idea of someone from the margins. i am sure the reasonable clerics won’t go for this nonsense. In some countries the cucumbers are sold ultra-tiny, like in Israel. They are about the size of a pickle. Maybe we should suggest that smaller cucumbers enter the market to reduce the threat?
