Sex in the Garden

  • By Reuven Travis, Michael J. Broyde
In the #MeToo times in which we live, there are few hard and fast rules that govern personal encounters and sexual liaisons. Consent, so long as it is neither coerced nor forced, dictates all.

There are no ""thou shall"" or ""thou shall not"" commandments given over by God to humanity. Instead, its narrative depicts the cultures of its time as operating on personal choices and personal freedoms.
