Will A Sex Tape Cost These 2 Iranian Men Their Lives? (Update: Or Not)

In the United States, sex tapes lead to reality shows. In Iran, they lead to death by stoning. Ayub and Mosleh, 20 and 21, allegedly recorded themselves having sex together with their mobile phones; the tape, reports the British-based Pink News, also features “pictures of President Ahmadinejad and a headshot of Supreme Leader Khamenei pasted over a donkey.” The ruling is — ugh — permitted under Islamic law banning sodomy, which apparently trumps the Qur’an’s language about not killing others. UPDATE: Word is coming in the original report, sourced to Pink News, is inaccurate and contains unverified or simply incorrect information.
