by Max Hollander (Posted on April 6, 2020)

In this mini text episode, we look at a passage in the Gemara (Niddah 16b-17a) which forbids or discourages sex during the daytime and try to parse the different reasons given for this ruling. In the end we discuss how some of this plays out practically and to what degree this is applicable nowadays.
