Overview

Boy meets girl. Boy marries girl. Boy and girl enjoy the sparks in the early years, but eventually settle into a comfortable friendship, and all passion disappears from their marriage. That’s just the way it goes, right? As many as one in three long-term marriages in America are sexless, and most people accept this as the inevitable course of a romantic relationship. In this groundbreaking book, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach explains why the prioritizing of love and companionship in marriage is all wrong, and why we should not go quietly into that dark night of celibate marriage. It is not love, Rabbi Shmuley shows, but lust that is the glue of a marriage. In this book you will learn how to restore lust to its rightful place as the central pillar of marriage. You will learn about the three principles of lust, and how to tap into them to keep the flames burning in the family hearth. Finally, you will discover the incredible emotional and spiritual potential of the intimate marital bond. In a wide-ranging discussion that plumbs the depths of the erotic mind, Rabbi Shmuley delivers a revolutionary message with the power to completely transform your most important relationship.

Editorial Reviews

Breitbart.com
Rabbi Shmuley Boteach is no stranger to controversy. His breakout advice book, Kosher Sex, provoked criticism from the religious community—and added new depth to many relationships. Now, Boteach—an occasional Breitbart News contributor—is launching a sequel, Kosher Lust: Love Is Not the Answer, that will push the boundaries further. And it ought to, for lust is too often dismissed as sin, when it can also be a positive force.

Kosher Lust makes two basic arguments: first, that love alone is not enough to sustain long-term relationships; and second, that married couples ought to cultivate lust, primarily through becoming more unavailable to each other.

Both points seem counterintuitive, yet Rabbi Shmuley argues them persuasively, drawing on Biblical teachings as well as on his extensive experience in counseling couples through their marital difficulties.
DAILY MAIL REPORTER
The title focuses on how famous relationships in the Old Testament used lust to create a lasting bond.

...Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, an author and former New Jersey congressional candidate…says that American marriages are constantly encountering trouble because they lack intimacy and desire.

...Rabbi Boteach advises that couples keep an air of mystery between them to keep their chemistry intact, as too much information can erode at their desire for one another.
