Sharia Law is not the problem .. its the application and the understanding of it .

Whether the Sharia law allows it or not, the Penis law does

So, islamic dudes, take a moment to talk to the little dudes down and ask:

"Downmighty P, Insallah, Sharia or you"

Everyone knows the answer

Actually I'm not sure if Islam would forbid pornography. It does forbid "idolatry" and porn could be seen as a form of worshiping images. Also it would go against the modesty of women.

Still I don't think Islam has any restrictions on self-pleasuring and I'm not sure it's as against "lustful fantasies" as Christianity. So I guess maybe I'd think porn isn't allowed, but that erotic literature might be okay as that wouldn't have to involve images or women behaving immodestly. But I am not a Muslim so take that with a grain of salt.

Masturbation is forbidden, looking at a woman other than your wife is forbidden, any unnecessary photographs of people are forbidden.. Pornography or any use of it are essentially an impossibility for a Muslim.
