The cab was in the underground part of the lot, and half of the lights were out, so it was very dark as we walked towards the car.  Sami held out his keychain and pressed the button to unlock the doors.  I grabbed his hand then, moved quickly, opening the back passenger door and getting in, pulling him with me.  He closed the door and turned to me and I was suddenly braver than before, pushing myself against him, bracing one hand against the glass of the window and putting the other on the back of his neck.

I kissed him before I could think about why I shouldn’t, and the surprise I felt in his lips melted away, leaving the taste of cigarettes on his tongue and the scent of a woody cologne on the skin of his face.  When I moved my thumb back and forth against the hairs on his neck his still hands came to life wildly.  He grabbed my shoulder, pulling me closer, rubbing my cheek while the other hand reached around my side and rested on my back.  I felt his fingers spread wide as if he were trying to touch as much of me as he could.  Taking my hand off the window, I hooked it under his arm, palming his shoulder and shifting so that I could pull him on top of me.  I felt his body tense, the muscles in his torso flexing and then slowly relaxing as I moved one foot so that it rested against the car door.  My legs were straddling him then, our pelvises aligned.

I opened my eyes.  We were still kissing and his face was very close, but I looked past him, over his shoulder to the roof of the car, which was perfectly clean.  Though I could see a small triangle of the window from where I was lying, I couldn’t see anything outside, just condensation over darkness.  It felt good to have Sami’s weight on me, and as we kissed I felt his erection press itself against my thigh.  He lifted his upper body up a bit, and pushed my shirt up to my shoulders so that my bra was showing.  As he peeled back one of the cups we made eye contact.  He looked embarrassed, like I had caught him doing something he wasn’t supposed to do, and the look confused me for a second.  I closed my eyes and he put his hand on the skin he had just uncovered.

Author of Jewrotica's Double Mitzvah column, Tamar Fox is a writer and editor in Philadelphia. She will try anything once, including open relationships, dating someone who is chalav yisrael, and going to Suriname.
  • This IS a longer piece but it’s riveting. The characters are so… real and the story captivates. In addition to the relationship between Sami and Yael, I enjoyed the Jerusalem area descriptions and the light-hearted poking at seminary culture, as both are quite familiar to me and near to my heart (perhaps in a distant sort of way.)

    Keep on writing, Tamar!

  • Brutal read. I felt like I was an intruder. Quality writing though, that’s for sure.

  • That was a brutal read. I felt like I was an intruder, looking into someone’s private life, trying hard not to be judgmental but incapable of ignoring the queasy feeling in the pit of my stomach.

      Hm. Why queasy/judgmental? Cause the guy was an Arab?

      I thought this story was gorgeously written. Good job, Tamar.

    I love how the story was written. It was lengthy but worthwhile. What made me annoyed is how easy it was the the main character to use her religion to shield herself away from the guy after she used him. It’s not a negative statement about writing.. in fact it’s admiration that the author was able to pick up on something so culturally prevalent. Its fascinating to me because I feel it happens so often.. religious men and women want what they can’t have, they desire sexuality more so when paid attention to than when not and they okay themselves to lose control with someone that they darn well know they will never.. ever end up with. (I don’t mean to sound all inclusive.. obviously there are exceptions… )

    Damn, that was hot. I love how the story built up and the characters came alive before the sexual tension (and release) happened. And a great end to the story!

    Wow, thank you for sharing this. It was INTENSE and it brought back sooooo many memories of being new in Israel and Naive. And of the endless heartbreaking stories I listened to as girls came home to our seminary dorms in the early morning hours, many times in tears and with shame.

    reminds me of the first time I was with a guy who wasn’t circumcised…there’s nothing sweeter than what’s forbidden…

  • Reading this story gave me chills – literally.
