Sex and the Texts


First off, an admission: I stole the title for this blog entry from one of the handouts at the sisterhood retreat. Thanks, Rabbi Carey Brown. The title of her lecture also was too juicy not to cite as well: “Sex is Good! … Modesty and Pleasure Both.”

In my 40-plus years on this earth, no rabbi has ever talked about sex in context of the Bible or anything else in my presence.
