Kosher Sex

So last week I went to the Hadassa convention in Hollywood to see Rabbi Shmuley Boteach speak about one of his books called “Kosher Sex”. (Btw, for those of you who don’t know what Hadassah is, it is a women's Zionist Organization, a volunteer women's organization, whose members are inspired to strengthen their partnership with Israel, ensure Jewish continuity, and realize their potential as a dynamic force in the US).

Wow, he is such a funny man and so extremely inspirational and wise.

In “Kosher Sex”, Rabbi Boteach discusses various approaches to sex, marriage, and personal relationships, drawing on traditional Jewish wisdom. He uses his experiences when counseling individuals and couples and in this book, he breaks down sexual taboos and openly, yet respectfully, discusses the meanings, emotions, and the hidden powers of sex.

Rabbi Boteach has a very unique anecdotal style. He really is such a funny man and it is such a pleasure listening to him. He illustrates each and every point, using real couples who have discovered the joys of "kosher sex"…sex based on love, trust, and real intimacy. He profiles the two most common types of couples, best friends and passionate lovers, and suggests ways of synthesizing the best that each type has to offer.

Everything is was talking about made so much sense and really helped me out in various aspects of my own personal relationship.

If you have not read any of his books yet, and he has many, I would recommend you pick up a copy of “Kosher Sex”. It truly is such a great book… not just for adults but for teens as well!
