Domestic Sluts for Dummies

“Malaysia to international news is kind of like Bai Ling to fashion commentaries. You can always count on us to look ridiculous. #defahmi” – @sophiagoh

The above Tweet by Becca’s sister, Sophia, is in reference to a whole other debacle, but by the same accounts it applies to this article that I came across while reading yesterday’s Sunday Star. This is just an excerpt, so for the full article — and greater heights of disgust — you may go here.

Obedient Wives Club to offer sex lessons

RAWANG: Sex lessons to help wives “serve their husbands better than a first-class prostitute” will be among the classes provided by the Obedient Wives Club (OWC) to help promote harmonious marriages and counter social ills.

Its vice-president Dr Rohaya Mohamad said it was time sexual prowess took a front seat in marriage, beyond that of the traditional “good mother or good cook” roles.

“A good or religious wife should also be good in bed,” she told reporters after the launch of the club’s Malaysian chapter at a golf club here yesterday.

She said a husband who was kept happy in the bedroom would have no reason to stray, seek out prostitutes or indulge in other social vices.

“The family institution is protected and we can curb social ills like prostitution, domestic violence, human trafficking and abandoned babies,” she said, adding that she believed these problems stemmed from unfulfilled sexual needs at home.

I can totally see this being turned into a book someday, purely for collector’s memorabilia purposes:

I hope I wasn’t the only one who felt incredibly offended by the headline, let alone the entire article. Clearly, the founders of this ‘club’ have (a) never been cheated on by their husbands, which is unlikely, (b) have no clue that they are being cheated on, which is more likely, or (c) have unparalleled self-confidence possibly brought about by the certified knowledge of exactly what they think will keep their (and other) husbands interested. Whatever the reason they had for thinking that an institution of this sort would even be tolerated, let alone successful, they have not been privy to the most basic, primal fact about men: no matter how good-looking their wives are, no matter how effective they are in bed (or anywhere else), they will cheat on them when the time and place proves most opportune.

And they have clearly never heard of the former Mr. Halle Berry, sometimes known as Eric Benét.
