I'm very thankful to have worked with a largely Jewish population in a previous life. Their generousity and patience with me as I learned their culture has been a big benefit in my life. It opened my eyes to a different way of looking at the world and a whole new host of teachers from whom I now learn.
Rabbi Shmuley Boteach is one of these teachers. In his new book, The Kosher Sutra, Rabbi Boteach gets to the bottom line issue with most marriages, the lack of desire, and ways to combat the problem
He talks about the need for an electric curiousity of life. In other words, an erotic outlook on life. If you'd like to hear it his own words, here you go.
Many of the statistics in the book are startingly, especially to a relatively young man. One that really is surprising: One third of all marriages are platonic. Wow....
There are a number of valuable pieces of advise for anyone in a relationship or anyone raising adolescent children. (Two sources of problems: the easy access to abundant free porn and early sexual relationships.)
If you are interested in rekindling a bit of passion in your relationship, The Kosher Sutra is a great starting point.
