The focus of this book is sex and the central position it occupies within marriage and relationships. Sex for pleasure is an end in itself. But Kosher Sex is the fire of sexual attraction that creates union in the bedroom and closeness and intimacy     in life.

Kosher Sex will change how you view, discuss, and approach sex. With humor, sensitivity, respect, and honesty, Rabbi Boteach touches on all the modern questions concerning this eternally interesting topic.

Kosher Sex pioneers a new approach to sex, marriage, and personal relationships that draws on traditional Jewish wisdom. Rabbi Boteach uses his experience counseling individuals and couples to break down sexual taboos and openly discuss the meanings, emotions, and the hidden power of sex.

In an unique anecdotal style, Rabbi Boteach 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. Rabbi Boteach also provides advice for singles on finding the right partner, for individuals both sure and unsure about taking their long-term relationship to the next level, and for married couples who may be experiencing problems in their sex life. At a time when three out of every five marriages fail, Kosher Sex will have an astonishing and positive impact.
