A prominent Iranian cleric is teaching that men who fantasize about other women while impregnating their wives will cause their children to be gay.
Ayatollah Hossein Dehnavi is a celebrity in Iran, where he regularly offers advice on family and sexual matters on state television.
‘When fantasizing about another woman while impregnating your wife, the child will be homosexual,’ he said.
According to Dehnavi, women who wear Islamic dress wrongly also turn men gay.
‘Women incorrectly wearing the hijab leads to homosexuality among men,’ he said.
Most of Dehnavi’s advice is aimed at women.
For example, he also teaches that women should women provide sex to their husbands ‘anywhere and at anytime’ and seeking sexual gratification is sinful.
Dehnavi even advises women on wardrobe choices like the color of underwear to wear:
‘Those who have pale skin should wear black underwear. And those with darker or bronze skin should wear white underwear to arouse their husbands,’ he said.
‘Make sure your husband can see your underwear.’
