Husbands who aren't into lively sex would have the option of making love to their dead wives under a bill being considered by the Egyptian parliament.
The "Farewell Intercourse" bill would permit a husband to have sex with his wife up to six hours after her death.
Theoretically, women could do the same, but practical realities would be an obstacle. The strange practice was discussed last year by controversial Moroccan cleric Zamzami Abdelbair, who declared that necrophilia is religiously acceptable.
An Egyptian journalist blasted the idea as a "catastrophe," reports Alarabiya. Could "the panel that will draft the Egyptian constitution possibly discuss such issues?" he asked. "Has the Islamic trend reached that far?"
It's one of a series of bills that could result in major setbacks for women in Egyptian society. Other laws under consideration include lowering the official age that girls can marry to 14, severely restricting a woman's right to divorce, and mandating female genital mutilation.
