Generally speaking, I think that a Torah framework for intimacy and sexuality means that you’re working within certain limits. It’s definitely still very possible to have an exciting sex life before and during marriage while adhering to these guidelines. My suggestion is to start with erotica; that is, stories and blogs that describe sex.
The internet has no end of great venues for erotica that spans every genre imaginable (and some that I would prefer never to imagine).
I am an Orthodox woman in my mid-20s, and I have a lot of sexual curiosity.
I am a virgin and plan to stay that way until I marry, but at the same time, I would like to explore my sexuality and not feel guilty about it, and am wondering if this is possible within a Torah framework.
I would venture to say that there are many other women in the same position as I am. Is it against [Jewish law] to discover what excites one sexually? I would really appreciate some grounded knowledge through a Modern Orthodox lens, and believe that others would benefit from it as well, instead of having to guess and/or feel guilty. Best, M Be the Christopher Columbus of your sexuality!
I would really like to know if it is ok to have sex without being married…
if we are both single and not in the baby productive age any more.
