Hadith on Marriage: Warning not to publicize private bedroom secrets

Asma’ bint Yazid reported: She was with the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, while men and women were sitting with him. The Prophet said, “Perhaps a man will say what he did in his house? Perhaps a woman will tell what she did with her husband?” The people sat in embarrassed silence, so I said, “By Allah, the women say so and the men do so.” The Prophet said, “Do not do so. Verily, that is like a male devil and female devil fornicating in the street while people watch.”

عن أَسْمَاء بِنْت يَزِيد أَنَّهَا كَانَتْ عِنْدَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَالرِّجَالُ وَالنِّسَاءُ قُعُودٌ عِنْدَهُ فَقَالَ لَعَلَّ رَجُلًا يَقُولُ مَا يَفْعَلُ بِأَهْلِهِ وَلَعَلَّ امْرَأَةً تُخْبِرُ بِمَا فَعَلَتْ مَعَ زَوْجِهَا فَأَرَمَّ الْقَوْمُ فَقُلْتُ إِي وَاللَّهِ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ إِنَّهُنَّ لَيَقُلْنَ وَإِنَّهُمْ لَيَفْعَلُونَ قَالَ فَلَا تَفْعَلُوا فَإِنَّمَا ذَلِكَ مِثْلُ الشَّيْطَانِ لَقِيَ شَيْطَانَةً فِي طَرِيقٍ فَغَشِيَهَا وَالنَّاسُ يَنْظُرُونَ
