There is no lack of books for Orthodox Jews on the laws of family purity, and there is no lack of secular sex manuals, yet there has never been a book that attempted to be a sexualmanual for Orthodox Jews. Until now. The new book Et Le'ehov: The Newlywed's Guide to Physical Intimacy is groundbreaking as it is the first book to offer guidance and advice on marital intimacy for Orthodox Jewish couples. The book is uniquely targeted to Orthodox newlyweds in several ways: Language used is designed to be sensitive--it is a accurate without being offensive and it is sensitive to the Orthodox community. Special "Question and Answer" sections: address common concerns faced by newlywed Orthodox couples. The range of sexual activities included is limited to those which are broadly sanctioned by halachah (JewishLaw). Specially commissioned illustrations were designed to be sensitive to the Orthodox young couple: only those pictures which are helpful to learning about sexual function are included.
