Johnny slavery is not only allowed in islam , muslims are allowed to have sex with them.

Quran has many ayas about it. One of them is:

033.050
YUSUFALI: O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to thee; and any believing woman who dedicates her soul to the Prophet if the Prophet wishes to wed her;- this only for thee, and not for the Believers (at large); We know what We have appointed for them as to their wives and captured women only.

Mohammed enslaved women after raiding an unsuspecting community without any warning and had sex with them. here are examples:

Bukhari vol 3,Book46, No. 717

"Narrated Ibn Aun:
Prophet had suddenly attacked Bani Mustaliq without warning while they were heedless and their cattle were being watered at the places of water. Their fighting men were killed and their women and children were taken as captives; the Prophet got Juwairiya on that day:

Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 34, Number 432:

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri:

We asked allah's Apostle , "O Allah's Apostle! We get female captives as our share of booty, and we are interested in their prices, what is your opinion about coitus interrupt us?"

Mohammed also allowed prostitution, except he called it temporary marriage.

Bukhari,Vl7,Bk62,No.130
Narrated 'Abdullah:

We used to participate in the holy battles led by Allah's Apostle and we had nothing (no wives) with us. So we said, "Shall we get ourselves castrated?" He forbade us that and then allowed us to marry women with a temporary contract .

Quran also allows 4 wives (4.3), child marriages (65.4) and changing wives at will:

004.020
PICKTHAL: And if ye wish to exchange one wife for another and ye have given unto one of them a sum of money (however great), take nothing from it?
