Please read entire Quran before speaking of Islam.

1) Women in Islam marry prior having sex, that's how Islam instructed men and women to live. So naturally in Muslim culture, women who marry are virgins. In modern day, it presents benfits such asrevent spread of STDs which are so popular in Weatern Culture.

2) Women are to stay home and not to engage in jihad by sword (war). So there is no such a thing as 72 male virgins...Women will be freed of jealousy in the paradise and therefore they will never mind their husband being with 72 virgins.

3) Enjoy reading Quran, it has plenty of Intresting information.


Or maybe 72 white grapes, which would be a more gender-neutral (if less seductive) reward. See The Syro-Aramaic Reading of the Koran

The word huri, universally interpreted by scholars as white-eyed virgins (who will serve the faithful in Paradise; Qur'an 44:54, 52:20, 55:72, 56:22) means, according to Luxenberg, white grapes. He says that many Christian descriptions of Paradise describe it as abounding in pure white grapes. This sparked much joking in the Western press; suicide bombers would be expecting beautiful women and getting grapes.[11]
