More on Sexual Intimacy

Moving further into the area of sexual ethics, I next briefly touch upon the question of sexual intimacy with a person and close members of that person's family.

Maimonides, Meir, and HaChinuch wrote their mitzvot to prohibit having sexual relations with the persons listed in Leviticus 18:17.

Like other mitzvot in this area, this seems very clear and straightforward, but we need to make sure that we understand and observe the rules exactly.

Mitzvah S5
