Khomeini also was responsible for another novel legal ruling (warning - this is mind-bogglingly disgusting):
"A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby being breastfed. A man, however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, while other sexual acts such as foreplay, rubbing, and kissing are allowed. A man having intercourse with a girl younger than nine years of age has not committed a crime, but only an infraction, if the girl is not permanently damaged. If the girl, however, is permanently damaged, the man must provide for her all her life. But this girl will not count as one of the man's four permanent wives. He also is not permitted to marry the girl's sister."With such a prestigious pedigree, it is no wonder that Qods Day has gained popularity among many Shi'a Muslims!
Khomeini specifically described an act known as thighing that allowed an adult male to simulate sex with a female child without penetration:"Thighing is a means for an adult male to enjoy a young girl who is still in the age of weaning; meaning to place his penis between her thighs, and to kiss her."
