And no, it’s not for some gross, racist, pervy reason.
It’s because our religion, our values, and our culture enables Jewish spaces to be more sex-positive than most — unapologetically feminist and welcoming of LGBTQ individuals. Whatever their level of observance, I feel like I can discuss sex with my Jewish friends, have fun, and not be judged.
fan like me, you probably shrieked in laughter when Midge said, “All that shit they say about Jewish girls in the bedroom? There are French whores standing around the Marais District saying [French accent], ‘Did you hear what Midge did to Joel’s balls the other night?

If you can't handle me at my mild mishegas, you don't deserve me at my best kvelling … Please know I'm going to bitch my way through anything that's not large and smelly in the best way possible. Your scooped-out bread ball with low-fat cream cheese is offensive to me.
