Heavenly Lust and Kosher Sex

Himmlische Lust und koscherer Sex

«Heavenly lust and kosher sex»- in Judaism a fulfilling sex life is expected, although only within the confines of marriage. Sex for Jews is not only about procreation but also lust and enjoyment. Women, as well as men, have a chartered right to it, which naturally has had an effect on Jewish culture, both religious and secular. Jewish women are the centre of their families and have a pronounced sense of self esteem. This film concerns itself with these and other fundamental Jewish attitudes to love and sex. The role of sex in the Torah is investigated, together with Jewish obligations and prohibitions regarding sexuality, including the function of sexual abstinence during menstruation and the customs surrounding marriage and weddings.
