Do Orthodox Jews Have Sex Through A Hole in the Sheet?

There is a misconception that Orthodox Judaism calls for a repressive, ascetic life and that sex between a married couple is only meant for procreation. This could not be further from the truth. Judaism believes that we are supposed to be in the physical world and then elevate it to the spiritual. In the proper time and context, marital intimacy is considered one of the most holy acts a person could do.

    Allison,
    Thank you for that very cute and informative video! I myself am a Jew and know that rumor to be a myth, but I still love the way that you explained it in your video. I also thought it was neat that Rachel (the asker of the question) is from Savannah, GA, just like me! Hooray! Can’t wait to see the next one!

    From Savannah, you say? Well then, I hope “Rachel” got her accent right!

    WOW! That’s so interesting to think that this “rumor” could have possibly gotten started with men’s tsitsis hanging on the clothesline!

    Hi, I remember reading that this was the custom of American Indians long ago
