In Kosher Sex, Rabbi Boteach pioneers a revolutionary approach to sex, marriage, and personal relationships, drawing on traditional Jewish wisdom. Using his experiences counseling individuals and couples, the author breaks down sexual taboos and openly, yet respectfully, discusses the meanings, emotions, and the hidden power of sex.
With his 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 has advice for singles on finding the right partner; for individuals either willing to take their long-term relationship to the next level or unsure about doing so; 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.
With a no-holds-barred conversational style and keen insight, Rabbi Boteach breaks all the taboos and pioneers a new approach to sex, marriage, and personal relationships. He not only brings traditional Jewish wisdom into the twentieth century but makes it relevant to everyone searching for a deeper, more meaningful, and more satisfying love life. -->

Your Spouse: A Friend or a Lover?
Platonic friendship-the interval between the introduction and the first kiss.
-Sophie Irene Loeb
I have always detested the belief that sex is the chief bond between man and woman. Friendship is far more human.
Love is a matter of chemistry. Sex is physics.
Husbands are chiefly good lovers when they are betraying their wives.
One of the rules of dating is that when a man tires of the woman he is seeing (or in many cases when a woman tires of a man), he cannot simply call her up and end it. No, that would be too heartless and cruel. Rather, dumping her comes in the form of the famous let's-be-friends phone call. "I really like you," he tells her. "But I like you as a friend. I love you more like a sister." Or, "I really like you, but the lab results have just returned and I have only four weeks to live, and I'd like to spend it with my pets." Or, "I'm crazy about you. But I've decided that I'm just not good enough for you. So, I've found a new woman in my life who is far less perfect." I even know a man who told a girlfriend he wanted to ditch that he had just discovered that he was gay and had fallen in love with his best friend. Excuses aside, everyone is supposed to understand that lovers cannot also be friends. Yet, amazingly, when it comes to marriage, people believe that entirely different rules apply.
Friends in Marriage
In my years of counseling couples, I have encountered two kinds of marriages. There are those couples who trust each other implicitly and explicitly. They are each other's confidants
