Sex and Sexuality of Formerly Ultra-Orthodox Jews: Defining Sexual Health

An examination of the unique dynamics and difficulties faced by formerly Ultra-Orthodox Jews as they transition into the secular world, especially around sexual health. This thesis distills some of the specific ways in which formerly Ultra-Orthodox Jews understand their own sexuality, how they would define “healthy” and “unhealthy” sexuality, and what they thought of those experiences. This presentation offers guidance to practitioners so that they may better serve these clients with increased attunement to issues of cultural competency and more thoughtful engagement around assumptions about “healthy” sexuality.
