Kosher Sex Toy Site Is Rated G for the Pious


An Orthodox Jewish man and his wife hoped to spice up their life between the sheets, but felt funny about using trashy websites, so they created their own. “We were thinking, ‘Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a place we could go that would be clean and would enhance what we have between us?’” said the founder of, which features a simple black background and stark pictures of the products, with no hot-and-bothered descriptions or images in sight. “There’s nothing wrong with using a vibrator. It’s just a pain in the neck for an Orthodox Jew to find one,” he said. The New Jersey man, who identifies himself only as Gavriel for fear of ostracism in the community, says that, so far, furry handcuffs are a top seller. The lingerie section, meanwhile, currently remains empty because it’s hard to display lace in an appealing way without busty models or mannequins.
