MetadataShow full item record
Senior honors thesis. Open Access.
Cultural and religious characteristics have been found to play a pivotal role in shaping sex-related attitudes and behaviors. Specifically, studies have found an association between religious affiliation, sexual pleasure, and marital satisfaction. This thesis project will examine the relationship between these factors within the Orthodox Jewish community. It will suggest that sex education for Orthodox Jewish women can either enhance or diminish future sexual and marital satisfaction. This project will then propose an experiment which quantitatively analyzes the differential psychological impact of Orthodox Jewish sexual education curricula on women’s marital and sexual experience
