The Obedient Wives Club
not to be confused with TV series The Good Wife

How to serve your husband better than a first–class prostitute will be the focus of sex lessons provided by the Obedient Wives Club (OWC). The club’s aim is to promote harmonious marriages and counter social ills.

OWC’s female Vice–President said it was time sexual prowess took a front seat in marriage beyond that of the traditional ‘good mother or good cook’.

‘A good or religious wife should also be good in bed,’ according to Vice President Dr Rohaya Mohamad. The group’s Malaysian chapter was launched at a local golf club.

‘… social ills like prostitution, domestic violence, human trafficking and abandoned babies were problems stemming from unfulfilled sexual needs at home.’ [sic]

Counselling sessions and lectures will be available for wives, husbands or couples.

Editor’s Comment:
The club’s mantra [if this is not too religiously confusing] seems to be: Keep ‘em  happy in the bedroom and they won’t stray.

A local politician described the club as ‘extraordinary and unique.’ He ain’t kidding! The good news is that Facebook users have launched a counter attack against the OWC. Other critics have suggested that OWC members should read up on statistics and factors that cause domestic violence. 




News from South Africa — Energy-drink maker Red Bull said that it has dropped an advertisement in South Africa after an outcry from both Christians and Muslims for its portrayal of Jesus Christ walking on water.

The television cartoon implies Jesus walked on water because he had been invigorated by a miraculous energy drink and knew where there were hidden rocks to tread on.

South Africa’s Roman Catholic bishops urged Christians not to drink Red Bull in traditional fasting for Lent ahead of Easter celebrations next month, but stopped short of calling for a full commercial boycott….

The bishops were joined by South Africa’s Muslim Judicial Council who were quoted as saying that any: ‘insult and satire’ of Jesus targeted ‘the very foundation of Islamic theology.’

Catholics were called on to donate to charities any money they saved on Red Bull during Lent. The ad was scrapped the day after it was aired. Red Bull regretted it had caused such strong feelings in religious communities.
