Jewcy Thoughts: How Israel’s First Sextival is the Fulfillment of the Zionist (wet) Dream

My Article in Jewcy on the significance of Israel’s first sex festival.

Key quote:

Not surprisingly, some Israelis and Jews have had a problem with the festival – seeing it as a degenerating sign that Israel is turning into a new Sodom and Gomorrah: a sinful society devoid of god consciousness. Or to put it in secular terms, a society in which the altruistic “we” has transformed into the self-serving and hedonistic “I.”

But having the largest collection of vibrating dildos is part of what it means to be the only democracy in the Middle East. This is the price of being a western-oriented free society. Moreover, far from being an anathema to the Jewish state, the values of the sextival are in keeping with the Zionist ethos of normalizing and transforming the very physicality of the Jewish people. Zionism was not only a nationalistic movement to safeguard a people and a culture, it was also an erotic revolution: one that sought to create tanned and muscular Jews, to equalize the relations between the sexes, and within its socialist parameters to reject the very tradition and concept of marriage.
