(Newser) – Malaysian politicians and feminists are furious about a new "Obedient Wives Club" that urges women to provide "prostitute-like" sex to avoid domestic violence and keep their husbands faithful, reports Reuters. The group, started by a group of Muslim women who also support polygamy, says women must believe in God and be hot in the sack to keep the peace. "A man married to a woman who is as good or better than a prostitute in bed has no reason to stray. A woman must do all she can to ensure his desires are met," Rohaya Mohamed tells the Straits Times.

The proclamation has unleashed a storm of criticism. "To hinge fidelity, domestic violence, and the fulfillment of a husband's responsibilities purely on a wife's capacity to be obedient, stimulate sexual arousal is not only demeaning to wives, but to husbands as well," said Shahrizat Jalil, the minister for Women, Family and Community Development. Added the director of rights group Sisters-in-Islam: "Abusive men often use women's behavior as a sick justification, but in the end, their actions are their responsibility."
