Married and Navigating Jewish Life

What kind of room does every kosher home need? A kosher sex room that’s what

with 6 comments

This is probably bound to get a like of hideous people who do those damnable google searches trying to find frum porn or the like. However we feel that well…we already get plenty of those so therefore so what? As we were together we got to thinking about a smart aleck comment I made about ‘Jews should have a seperate room off their master bedroom for a sex room so they can lock it up and keep the kids out’. Well that off the wall comment brought us to some very serious thoughts. Let’s face it; this might not apply to married couples who don’t have kids and also do not have family members who walk into their home uninvited. This would be for those who do have relatives who come in the door without announcing themselves and have kids.  So, why a “Kosher Sex Room”? I mean don’t we have enough rooms that we want? We all want a 2nd Kitchen for Pesach, a Shabbas Playroom for the Kids (see Basement uses), extra bathrooms for the amount of kids you have (and in Flatbush its usually more girls than boys at home and we all know that girls from HS and above need to put on the makeup and blitz the zits and zap the pits to already get on the right lists), and can’t forget the study, the large living room and dining room, and of course the transforming of closets into bedrooms because you have run out of bedrooms and rooms for the kids.So, this extra room, off the master bedroom, what’s the reason? Let’s count the ways,

  • Can lock up so your kids don’t know that Mommy and Daddy can sleep in the same bed 
  • Can hide the TV and Computer from your kids
  • Hide the secular books from your kids
  • Turn it into a hideaway from the children and everyone else
  • Can make sure that there is complete darkness if you are following that opinion or make it as bright as you want without the kids knowing you are still up.
  • Hide the sex toys, porn, and sexual aids that you might use
  • Home Videoes of Mommy and Daddy Storage
  • Private Pics of Mommy and Daddy Storage
  • One word: Soundproofing

 Yeah, sounds a bit boring in the end and you can only say that if you could compare it to a sex room for goyim. They have hanging bars, stretching bars, swings, etc and those rooms are never really intended to be a secret – generally they are there until they need to turn it into a nursery.However for us married people without a room to call our own for those two precious weeks we have together, its a nice idea. In this day in age, if you really want to be what you wish in the bedroom with your spouse and do whatever you want how can you? Can you trust your children to not go through drawers that you might leave unguarded? To not find things that you do not want them to see? Or even walk in unknowing? We were making a pointed comment that once our child grows up and gets older that we’ll even need to be quiet during our time together because they might overhear!?! Yes, they don’t make walls like they used to. We always hear our neighbors and I am sure they hear us.  So is this kind of room out of the question? Not really, maybe it should be renamed to ‘Mommy and Daddy Private Room’ but that wouldn’t of drawn so many of you to come and read this. Hoping more people comment than lurk for this time around, wondering if anyone feels that only having such a private room will give you that peace of mind to have those things in the house and be whatever you wish to be with your spouse without the children/relatives finding out.

  2. My kids are a little young to worry about them walking in on us, but it seems like you can’t have REAL privacy unless your kids are not home or you are not home! Anything else is just he illusion of privacy. A secret room sounds very 007, though.

  3. I completely agree! It is so difficult to have the benefits of being married when the kids are in the next room! Plus, if you want to add some novelty…well, forget it! We hide everything personal in a box up high in the closet–not convenient, but there it is.

  4. Why not just get in the habit of locking the bedroom door? The house rules should dictate that children are not allowed in the parents bedroom. My parents used to lock their bedroom door when they wanted privacy and it was generally accepted that children do not go into the parents room to snoop around.
