Rated PG-13One of the rare books on Jewish sexuality has a thought-provoking cover photo of a nude Annie Sprinkle. The book, Jews & Sex, is edited by Nathan Abrams, who wrote a chapter titled, “Kosher Beefcakes and Kosher Cheesecakes: Jews in Porn – An Overview.” He points out that there has been little research on religion of porn actors and directors, and very few Jewish themes within these films.

Many in the porn industry change their names and Jewish symbols are rarely used, although Abrams identifies a few examples of Jewish themes and actors. For example, in one film, Ron Jeremy is having sex while wearing a yarmulke and shouting “Oy vey.” But for the most part, it appears that Jewish themes are absent. Perhaps Judaism specifically, and religion in general, is absent from mainstream adult films. Even Adam and Eve, the large distributor of adult films, lacks religious based themes in their listings of film types.

With that said, the Internet and technology have changed how sexuality is presented. We now find specialized web sites that offer various Jewish themes. This is an emerging trend that follows the similar pattern of specialized sex sites. For example, I heard that a JILF site was in progress that will follow the pattern of the well-established MILF sites (women over 30 years of age). There is a recent trend for “frum porn” – porn apparently marketed to Orthodox Jews. Jewish themed online periodicals such as Heeb and Jewcy offer high quality articles about Jewish sexuality and the recent publication of Jewrotica is yet another marker of a Jewish online sexual paradigm change.

So what is Jewish porn? I would posit that pornography is sexually explicit material that is degrading and humiliating (pornography etymologically and historically is “writing about prostitutes”). In contrast, erotica is sexually explicit material that involves pleasurable, enjoyable, consenting, and harmless sex. I will focus on sexually explicit adult materials that have a Jewish theme without getting into the porn/erotica debate.

Here are a few Jewish themes I have read about that are integrated with sexually explicit online materials:

  • A woman is having sexual intercourse with her boyfriend and the scene depicts a tattoo of a Star of David on her lower back that is shown during the sexual interaction.
  • A nude woman is on a bed enjoying an intimate massage and she has a Jewish symbol on her necklace.
  • A website advertises “hot nude Jewish women”.
  • An online group is set up for Jews who are into “kinky sex.”
  • A new Jewish porn star named James Dean is introduced in various online Jewish publications.


  • Whether you are excited, angered, curious, or confused about all this, we will hopefully see more discussion about Jewish porn and erotica. Will it become more specialized and taboo or will it become more mainstream and accepted?
