An Egyptian Shaykh, Rashad Hasan Khalil, has issued a fatwa (not to be confused with the fatwas of CAIR in Washington, DC) to the effect that it is prohibited for married couple to take off their clothes during sex, and that such a behavior would nullify that marriage contract. But the secretary of Fatwa at Al-Azhar said that looking at the body during sex is desirable except at the vagina, but then advised that the man and the woman cover up with a sheet or garb. While this debate was going on, Isarel was bombing Gaza and the US was still "liberating" Iraq.
