BRING ON THE KARMA JUTRA
MOST of the books that land on my desk are worthy works of talmudic scholarship or biblical translation. So I could hardly fail to be struck by a recent arrival, The Newlywed’s Guide to Physical Intimacy.
Published by Gefen — whose titles are normally along the lines of Ezekiel’s Vision or The Secrets of Challah — it is basically a guide to a good sex life for Torahobservant couples.
Once parents handed down such advice to their children, say authors Jennie Rosenfeld and David Ribner. But now they believe that “this is no longer the norm. As a result, many couples are left to face this critical area of their lives with little guidance.”
There are some explicit illustrations of sexual positions — contained in a sealed envelope attached with a warning to the inside back cover.
