"In the introduction to The Perfumed Garden (12th century), the author praises God for having given us the pleasures of love-making. He says that God endowed women with beauty to inspire men to make love to them. He says that he is a Muslim, that there is only one God and that Mohammed is his prophet." --Sholem Stein

Apart from Eros and Sexuality in Islamic Art (2013), a book edited by Francesca Leoni and Mika Natif, not much has been written on Islamic erotica.
