“Go forth and multiply” was the first commandment in the Bible. There is another commandment that it is the role of the husband to ensure that the woman is sexually satisfied. From King David to Ron Jeremy (porn star), Jews have taken an interest in sex. But what do we know about the relationship between Jews and sex?

This collection of essays by academics from Britain and other European countries, North and South America, Israel and Australia begins the voyage of discovery. Chapters include:

• Jews in pornography and the adult film industry
• Sexual propaganda
• Woody Allen
• “The Bride of God”: erotic theology
• Homosexuality and Judaism
• A century of sex on the Jewish stage
• Lesbian Yiddish poetry
• The Jewish American Princess
• Sex and the British Jewish novel
• Jews in prostitution and the white slave trade
• Sex and art
… and many more
