To write openly and candidly about sex, one must throw aside certain inhibitions. If someone is an Orthodox rabbi, such sexual openness can be off limits.

Shmuley Boteach has been throwing aside inhibitions with abandon for quite some time now, providing a unique and much-needed Orthodox Jewish voice that paradoxically uses remarkable sexual candor bordering on prurience to promote modesty and monogamy. His latest production, Kosher Lust: Love Is Not the Answer, is no exception.
