Ruling on learning sexual advice


According to some marje’, reading books that are obscene should be avoided. If an individual wishes to read sexual advice with the intention of learning about sex and how to improve it, is this prohibited. Does the ruling change if the individual is married or not. What if it causes arousal but the individual is confident no sin will come out of it. The sexual advice would be for example on a website with people giving tips to each other or from an expert in the subject.


Alaykum Al-Salam

Reading such books with rational purposes is allowed but stimulating sexual sensation is not allowed if it result to a sin.  the ruling is equal for single or married . many of such sites or advices are not accurate and some of them are not fit to our Islamic standards. one most be carful reading and communicate in such discussions
