Well, somebody got a bad translation of Lawrence.

I think this Iranian cleric has been reading something he shouldn't: his ideas about extramarital affairs causing earthquakes makes me think of D. H. Lawrence's "pornographic" novel Lady Chatterley's Lover.

I don't think I've read many other instances where the female orgasm was referred to in such terms.


  1. It's a Jerry Lee Lewis thing!

    "A whole lot of shakin' on!"

  2. Considering that Jerry Lee Lewis married his thirteen year old cousin, I'd say that the "thing" in question is endemic in all Islam.
