Iranian women win apology over TV advice to kiss husbands' feet

Dressed in a black chador, or cloak, the interviewee told viewers that the attention, which should begin with the feet being washed with milk and rose petals, will “keep your husband charged for a month” and show him “the magic of love.”

The clip was shared heavily on messaging apps like Telegram, where it sparked a slew of angry and derisory comments. Others complained to Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting, prompting the network that’s run by hardline conservatives to express regret.

“We will seek to compensate for this matter with better planning and more awareness in how we deliver content,” IRIB said in a statement last week, according to the semi-official Iranian Students News Agency.
