While perusing the cornucopia of viewing content that is Amazon Prime, we came across a rather interesting sounding title – Kosher Sex. (Hey, this IS NYC!)
It was a 60 minute discussion by Shmuley Boteach – author of the book by the same name. It was a humorous, enlightening exploration of the breakdown of sexuality – especially in long term marriages – and what can be done about it.
He often referenced traditional Jewish teachings and concepts and brought them into relevance with our 21st century society and philosophies. I’m not giving any spoilers – some of the wisdom was actually quite profound and had significance today.
I loved how he effortlessly addressed concepts that many would consider taboo and broke them down into meaningful entities. With a prevailing thread of humor that ensured the audience was kept engaged and entertained by his presentation.
I didn’t agree with everything in the presentation as I believe there are a few more energy dynamics that influence a truly passionate intimate relationship. But, I must give benefit of the doubt as there was no way he could have covered all the bases in just 60 minutes.
I’m now extremely interested to acquire the book to see what other insights Rabbi Boteach has to share.
