Have you ever considered how your upbringing affected the way you feel about your sexuality? If you were brought up in a religious community, there is a good chance you received some pretty specific messages about sex. This is the second episode of a three-part mini-series on sex and faith. While faith isn’t the focus of this whole podcast, it is something that impacts the way so many people feel about their sexuality. If you haven’t listened to the first episode of the series, when I interview Rev. Dr. Beverly Dale, be sure to go check it out because we discuss some important principles that will guide you as you take in all the important information in this and the next episode.
Today, I sit down with Talli Rosenbaum, a sex and relationship therapist based in Israel, to talk about some of the how’s, when’s, and why’s of sex in the Jewish faith. By the way, if you have a story about how religion affected the way you feel about your sexuality, I want to hear about it! As much as we learn from other experts, nothing makes us feel more connected than hearing from our peers. Visit loveandlibido.com to share your story. I’ll compile them together and air them on an upcoming episode. If you have a general sex or relationship question, you can submit that too by visiting loveandlibido.com.
