Reference: Imams meet to mull Islam and web lust, Bangkok Post, May 22, 2009

Male followers of Islam are unique in the power of their libido and their inability to control themselves when thus incited by the sight of a woman whether in person or on the web. It is possibly for this reason that religious authorities go to extreme ends to ensure that their men are not subjected to sexual stimulus of any kind lest their actions, though forgiven because boys will be boys, become an embarrassment for the religious orthodoxy ( Imams meet to mull Islam and web lust, Bangkok Post, May 22, 2009). I would like to suggest a simple solution to the problem that does not involve zealous and invasive policing of people's personal lives. A readily available and inexpensive anti-depressant called  fluoxetine, also known by the brand name Prozac, is known for the powerful side effect of reducing libido. In other words a capsule a day will keep the devil away. Proper Islamic sexual behaviour will be assured. Internet content will no longer need to be monitored or censored. Imams may then return to their primary functions of worshiping and teaching. Disclaimer: Prozac is a prescription drug and may be taken only after consultation with a physician
