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.

In the more than ten years since Marnina Gonick directly challenged the field by asking, “Are queer girls, girls?” (2006: 122), girls’ studies has grown into a formidable, expansive, and increasingly recognized area of academic discourse.
