Summary

Summary

From Erotique Noire to On a Bed of Rice and Pleasure in the Word, ethnically themed collections are becoming more and more popular among readers of erotica. The Oy of Sex represents the first anthology of Jewish women's erotica by mainstream authors including Joan Nestle (author of A Fragile Union); Robin Bernstein (editor of Bridges, a journal of Jewish feminist culture and politics); and Judith Arcana (author of Grace Paley's Life Stories, A Literary Biography). The stories in The Oy of Sex are laden with Jewish symbols, holy days, customs, and cultural references -- along with zaftig women, tempting food, and a hefty dose of Yiddish humor!
