In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.
In this fatwa:
It is permissible for a man to have intercourse with his wife without a cover. It is also permissible for couples to have sex in a bathroom. But that means that he will be going against the Sunnah by not mentioning Allah beforehand.
Perhaps you know that the Sunnah, when a man wants to have intercourse with his wife, is to say,
Almighty Allah knows best.
