Re: Request: Readings on Judaism and sexuality - specific topics

For the request of Justin Jaron Lewis who is looking for articles or book chapters on Judaism and sexuality - for certain specific topics:

A. In general, many basic questions (not the new ones of course) in this field can be answered in taking a close look in this old good book: Louis M. Epstein, Sex Laws and Customs in Judaism, New York 1948.

B. For: Gender fluidity / gender diversity / the "pronouns" issue - see:

Re: Request: Readings on Judaism and sexuality - specific topics

Hi Justin,

You might want to check out my book The Passing Game: Queering Jewish American Culture which deals with some of these topics albeit in an earlier time frame. Also, I think there's an article in the book Queer Jews and a short story in Kosher Meat (yes, the title is horrible) that talks about BDSM as spiritual practice.

Request: Readings on Judaism and sexuality - specific topics

For an undergraduate course with a focus on Judaism and sexuality (broadly defined), I am looking for articles (preferably from peer-reviewed journals), or book chapters, on the following current issues, from Jewish perspectives or with a Jewish focus:

- gender fluidity / gender diversity / the "pronouns" issue

- sexual harassment

- online sex e.g. sexting, catfishing

- pornography (I do have Jonathan Crane's 2010 article "Judaic Perspectives on Pornography")

- robot sex

- BDSM as spiritual practice

Thank you for any suggestions.
