Only Rabbi Shmuley is brave enough to say aloud what we women in long-term relationships secretly yearn for the most: to be desired. Kosher Lust is a how-to marriage saver, a start-tonight passion igniter, replete with Shmuley s trademark candor, spiritual wisdom and humor. A must-read. --Lisa Bloom, New York Times bestselling author of Think and Swagger
Who better than an orthodox rabbi to tell you that lust is not only good, it s sanctioned by the Bible. That s right: it s kosher. Shmuley Boteach can add another notch to his calling card. He is not only the love rabbi, he is the lust rabbi now, as well. --Alan Colmes, Fox News Radio
The great virtue of Kosher Lust is that it will push readers to re-evaluate their relationships in a constructive way, allowing couples to explore the positive role lust can play in their lives. It is Rabbi Shmuley at his best! --by JOEL B. POLLAK, breitbart.com

As for the controversial title, he’s clearly trying to reach a wide audience and using the shock value to do so. It’s certainly not a traditional technique, but it worked well enough that the book caught attention and we made a purchase.
This book is perfectly acceptable for a modest and religious or secular audience, presenting it’s ideas in a clean and modest way, and has a message of equal value for religious and secular readers. People of all or no religious faith can benefit.
The author starts with a startling and frightening premise… Houston, we have a problem with marriage:
- Divorce rates have been at 50% for 50 years!
- Married couples are now less that 45% of all households!
- There are more help books for marriage, marriage advice TV shows, marriage therapy, etc, available now than any time in history… yet marriage isn't working to the point that marital success is now a minority situation.
- The average duration of a marriage today is 8 years!
- 53% of children are now born to unmarried parents (averaged across all communities)!
These are all US statistics. In many other places the statistics are WORSE! In Norway and Finland, it’s 30% worse. In some South American countries, it’s 50% worse!
As the author says, it seems the only people who want to get married nowadays are same-gender oriented!Read more ›
Lust can only flourish when we feel safe and G-d wisdom is revealed in the scriptures. Lust is exhilarating, creative, moves mountains and nourishing. So many of my friends have given up on sexual passion, but it is imprinted in my soul's memory. I am divorced and wish we could have gotten council from this wise author to reveal our conflicts. This book makes so much sense, I highly recommend it to all searching for a deeper connection.
