sharia compliant online sexshop El Asira

Reader comment on item: Female Desire and Islamic Trauma

Here it is, the sharia-compliant online sex-shop set up in the Netherlands. The site itself links to a newspaper article which reports how this idea came up. http://www.nrc.nl/international/article2507049.ece/Online_Islamic_sex-shop_opens_for_business

Can anybody explain what the particular sharia-ingredient actually is ? The reference I find in the article is this: "The imam who advised El Asira is Boularia Houari, a 35-year-old glass fibre cable technician who gives Koran lessons and preaches on request at various mosques."
