Monogamy Has To Be Dirty To Work

Aug 31, 2010 • Books, Culture

“In order for monogamy to work, it has to be ‘dirty.'”

Those are the words of Rabbi Irwin Kula, author of Yearnings: Embracing the Sacred Messiness of Life.

“If the forbidden is what is exciting, we have to work hard to bring the taboo into our most intimate relationships,” he goes on. “If transgression is so titillating, we have to learn to transgress where we’re most safe. Our relationships can be nothing less than pleasure chamber. But we need to create situations and takes risks that are out of the ordinary and push the envelope.”
