Sex liberties and mirror naked
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

hat are the do & don`t s (sex) as per islam?
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 223:
223 Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth (for sexual intercourse) when or how ye will.
Abu Dhar al-Ghafari reported: ‘The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: “there is a reward for you [even] in sex with your wife."’ The companions asked: ‘O Messenger of Allah (saws) is there a reward if one satisfies his passion?" He (saws) said: "Do you know that if he satisfies it unlawfully he has taken a sin upon himself? Likewise, if he satisfies it lawfully, he is rewarded."

Islam has allowed the husband and the wife in marriage every possible liberty to enjoy conjugal relations with each other, except three:
- It is strictly prohibited to have sexual intercourse with one’s wife during her period of menstruation.
- It is strictly prohibited to enter the woman through her anus.
- Although there is no specific prohibition mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah, the majority of the scholars in Islam have voiced their opinion against ‘oral’ sex, whereby one touches the other’s private organs with their mouth.
Other than the above three restrictions, one may enjoy conjugal relations with one’s spouse any place, any time, and any how their heart’s desire.
Your Question: looking the images of sexual organs (self) in the mirror is acceptable or no? if no why?
Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 4.126
Ali reported that when the Prophet (saws) looked into a mirror he (saws) would say, "Praise and Thanks be to Allah. O Allah, make me good mannered as You made me good looking." (Reported by Ibn As-Sinni). Anas reported that whenever the Prophet (saws) looked at his face in the mirror, he (saws) would say, "Praise be to Allah Who fashioned my nature and gave it a perfect form, and Who honored my face and made it good, and made me one of the Muslims."
There is absolutely no harm and no sin if one looks at oneself in the mirror, or for an absolutely genuine need or perchance happens to see one’s own private organs in the mirror. What is discouraged and prohibited in Islam is that one stay or move about naked without an absolutely valid reason (bath, answering the call of nature, changing of clothes, sexual intercourse, etc.).
Al-Muwatta Hadith 47.9
Yahya related from Malik from Salama ibn Safwan ibn Salama az-Zuraqi that Zayd ibn Talha ibn Rukana that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said: 'Every ‘deen’ has an innate character; and the (innate) character of Islam is modesty.'
Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4006 Narrated by Mu'awiyah ibn Haydah
I asked: ‘O Messenger of Allah (saws), from whom should we conceal our private parts and to whom can we show?’ The Prophet (saws) replied: ‘Conceal your private parts from all except from your wife and from whom your right hands possess.’ I then asked: ‘O Messenger Allah (saws), (what should we do), if the people are assembled together?’ He (saws) replied: ‘If it is within your power that no one looks at it (your private parts), then no one should look at it.’ I then asked: ‘O Messenger of Allah (saws), if one of us is alone, (what should he do)?’ He (saws) replied: ‘Allah is more entitled than people that bashfulness should be shown to Him!’
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 3115 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Umar
Allah's Messenger (saws) said: "Avoid being naked, for with you are those who never leave you (the Angels) except when you are relieving yourselves and when a man has intercourse with his wife; so observe modesty before them and honor them."
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
