Seventy-two virgins

"The Religious Policeman," my favorite Saudi expatriate blogger, has some ideas about the 72 virgins that supposedly await Muslim martyrs.

His posting is just more fallout from an Arab-language television program that frankly uncovers the link between sex (or lack of sex) and martyrdom. More here, including a quote from a guy who is still in the news: “I don't want any women to go to my grave at all during my funeral or on any occasion thereafter.”

Aphrodite will not be denied, as I once wrote.
