What is Jewrotica?

From The Desk Of New

Rated PG

At just seven weeks old Jewrotica is still in its infancy, and determining what qualifies as “Jewrotica” is as tricky as defining Jewish art.  It’s easy to identify as Jewrotica anything with a Jewish author and Jewish subject matter.

Similarly, if a Jewish artist creates a decorative kiddush cup, that certainly qualifies as Jewish art.  But what about the more ambiguous things?  What if a non-Jewish artist creates that kiddush cup?  Or what if a Jewish artist creates a set of decorative dishes or paintings that don’t seem to tie into any Jewish theme?  How about an article on a Jewish woman who owns a sex toy shop?

Jewrotica is the explorations of all things Jewish and sexy.  So, does it matter if the authors are non-Jewish?  Does it matter if the authors are Jewish, but the content only indirectly speaks to Jewish culture and heritage?  What about interviewing Jewish actors, musicians or even adult entertainers who work in the sex world?  Does their Jewishness render them “Jewrotic”?

We have a vision, but we want to know what you think.  There is no one answer and the exploration of the question itself is part of the process.

So, dear readers, what iJewrotica?

Light and Love,
