Getting The Sex You Want in Orthodox Judaism

Religion has for centuries shaped our sexual values and behaviors, everything from masturbation to ejaculation to procreation. This is possibly most noticeable in Orthodox Judaism. Thankfully for ultra-Orthodox women in my local region, Bat Sheva Marcus is an Orthodox Jewish sex counselor, teaching patients and kallah teachers (sex educators) how to balance religious observance with physiological arousal in order to maintain a healthy sexual relationship between husband and wife. Daniel Bergner presents Marcus’ work with the Medical Center for Female Sexuality and the Hasidic Judaism community in The Orthodox Sex Guru (The New York Times). I often refer patients to Bat Sheva Marcus and highly respect her for the difference she’s making in women’s lives and marriages.

Judaism is just one of the religions I will be discussing during my upcoming teleseminar with Dr. Talli Rosenbaum and Kristin Hodson. During week one Dr. Rosenbaum will discuss basic Judaism views surrounding the sexual act and present three core concepts of Judaism surrounding sexuality. She will also provide some cautions for practitioners who wish to treat Orthodox Jewish clients. In Week Two, Kristen will discuss Mormonism and sexuality and in week three, I will discuss techniques for working with couples who have mixed religious backgrounds. I will address religious extremism and how it relates to sexuality in the modern world. 3 AASECT CE’s are available – Class starts March 3rd. Register here

Break free from the ordinary and discover the extraordinary inside you!

You spend most of your energy dealing with the piles of little issues in life, like responding to emails, posting on social media, sending and answering texts, talking on the phone—everywhere and all the time, including on walks, driving in the car, and even going to the bathroom! And on top of dealing with the daily minutia, you also spend so much of your time managing the big life issues like health challenges in yourself or loved ones, fighting uphill to advance your career, or struggling with loneliness and isolation.

Like many people, your worst fear may be that even though you sense you were born for bigger things, that you’ll never actually realize your true potential and will simply keep being swept along by the limitations of everyday life.

Female ejaculation – pee or #notpee? Why is it even a question?

There has been quite the debate in mainstream media and feminist media about the latest research in female ejaculation. First, one study cites 7 women who appear to have urea in their ejaculate, then sex bloggers took to social media to share their experience with squirting: it’s #notpee. New Scientist consulted with other scientists on the topic and found that female ejaculate comes in two forms: part pee and part #notpee. What is your experience with squirting? What does it mean for women if female ejaculation is found to just be urine?

Embrace your faults with authenticity!

Anne Lamott (author) recently shared a personal experience on her Facebook page about neck lifts and authenticity and it resonated so much with me that I would like to share it with you, my dear friends and blog readers. To read it, click here and while you’re there be sure to “Like” her page.

She discusses with openness and authenticity her aging body. We are all aging and as women we should get in touch with what that means, are we okay with ourselves, are we loving to ourselves, are we accepting, and is it okay to want something different? Can we accept women who want plastic surgery?

Learn the effects of religion and spiritual beliefs on sex

Religion has for centuries shaped our sexual values and behaviors, everything from masturbation to ejaculation to procreation. Find out how we are shaped by our beliefs and how we as therapists can help couples confront their pasts and find faith that works for a sexually healthy future. Sex and religion may have a bad name in therapy, but there can be positive influences through faith and practice for many couples in their sexual lives.

Beginning March 3rd, two top experts in the field of sex and religion will join me to discuss the challenges of working with special populations.

Dr. Talli Rosenbaum, in Israel, will talk about her work with Orthodox Jewish couples and Kristin Hodson will discuss her ongoing clinical work in Utah with the Mormon LDS population. In the third week, we will cover mixed religion and interfaith couples and touch on the stress of religious extremism in all of its forms and the effects this has on adult sexual relationships.

Participants will learn the effects of ancient spiritual traditions on relationships, sensuality and sexual function. This course will examine religion and sex from many angles and will give an overview of the resources that are available for clinicians who want to go deeper into this challenging work with couples from all backgrounds.

Early registration discount available until February 10th!
