Israelis unhappy, unsafe in bedroom

By TALYA HALKIN

We should really be proud of our brothers in Israel for their honesty, but feel really bad because they are so unhappy!UOJ


Israelis are among the world's most ignorant population when it comes to knowledge about sexually transmitted diseases.

According to an annual sex survey conducted by the Durex condom company, 23 percent of Israelis have never heard of the most common STDs. By contrast, only 8% of those surveyed in some 50 other countries were unaware of the existence of these diseases.

The poll also suggests that Israelis are feeling generally unsatisfied with their sex lives.( I feel really bad for them )

The survey, which was published on Tuesday, was conducted by Internet, and the data was analyzed at the company's British headquarters.

The good news, according to the survey, is that "only" 7% of married Israelis admit to cheating on their partners.

Matters are much worse in Turkey - where 58% of survey participants reported instances of infidelity - and in Denmark, where 46% of those surveyed reported having sex outside of a stable relationship.

. (Shvartzes in Brooklyn, N.Y. report 100% INFIDELITY rates, in matter of fact they are not sure what FIDELITY means. I walked up to Leroy on Flatbush av. the other day and I said, "Hey bro, do you know what fidelity means?"
He said, "sure, my brother went to jail robbin one of them offices".)


The bad news, however, is that 41% of Israelis have had unprotected sex without inquiring about the partner's sexual history. (Oy Vey Is Meer)

According to Harel Braude, the product management director for Durex in Israel, the latter statistic "explains the growing percentage of Israelis who have been infected with STDs in Israel in recent years."

Also worrying, 56% of Israelis report having one-night stands, as opposed to an average of 40% in other countries.

Nevertheless, Israelis lag behind the rest of the world in their degree of sexual satisfaction. In comparison with the 44% of those surveyed in general, only 36% of Israelis reported satisfaction with their sex lives. Makes you want to cry!

Men and women differed on this matter: While 41% of Israeli men said they did not feel they had enough sex, only 21% of Israeli women felt the same way. Nevertheless, 85.5% of Israeli men reported that quality was more important than quantity. Only 4.4% of Israeli women thought that quantity was more important. ( this cracks me up)

Still, 12.8% of Israeli women consider a month to be too long a time to forgo sex, while only 23.9% are willing to wait as much as half a year.

Men, by contrast, are more impatient. Only 9% of Israeli men are willing to forgo sex for six months, and 5% believed that even a single day without sex was too much.

Despite their relatively high level of sexual discontent, Israelis consume less pornography than the international average (34% compared to 41% in other countries); only 15% of Israelis use vibrators, compare to 43% of Americans and Britons.

For those concerned about their degree of sexual experience, it may be useful to know that the average number of partners reported worldwide is nine.

Here too, gender plays an important role: Men reported an average of 10.2 partners, while women reported a 6.9 average. Israelis are slightly above the average, with a reported average of 10.6 partners.( that's for the Charedim, The seculars are known to have 100 PLUS

Overall, Israeli participants in the survey reported that the most common locations for sex outside of the bedroom was a vehicle (57%), the beach (41%) and the bathroom (39%). Twenty-two percent of Israelis also reported having sexual relations in clubs and shuls..( This Is Very Important to Know)

Exhibitionist tendencies were especially prevalent among Chassidic Americans and Canadians - 21% of whom reported they enjoyed having sex in front of their Rebbe.

Worldwide, 36% of participants in the survey reported that their favorite place for having sex was in their parents' bedroom. (PATHETIC BASTARDS)

Hi UOJ, I was shown your site recently, and while you are clearly nuts, I feel that there is a use in someone like yourself. For the most part I feel that you are sincere and care about what goes on in the Jewish world.

Anyway, while going through your earliest blogs, I found this little gem:'Un-Orthodox Jew said...
They must have intermarried with ashkenazim,pure blooded sephardim aint that smart."

I'd like to give turn around and give a big Fuck You for that racist shit.

I am now going to apologize to an aquaintance for defending you. I know that being the glorious crusader that you are that means nothing to you.

After all, I am only a human being, you are a big bad blogger out to save the world. Congrats tho, on insulting me personally. I do not give you mechila. When all is said and done, I will hold you accountable for the insult.

I know, I shouldn't think anything about it right? After all, it's all in "good fun". That's how I felt about most of your posts until I read the one that insulted my own ancestry.

You are not the only one who graduated with a degree from NYU bitch. Most of my relatives have degrees from various colleges. Whether Cornell, NYU, Techniyon, Brandeis, Rutgers, etc.

Yes, you "struck a nerve" as you so happily crow in half your posts. Usually when someone's entire family is insulted REPEATEDLY by a certain group of people, who all happen to come from Europe - the insult takes on more and more steam. A lot of sephardim probably know what I am talking about here.

I want to thank you though, for clearing up my vision. I actually had the nerve and lack of consideration to think you were an intelligent, well meaning human being. Once I saw that one, sick, disgusting post, I fully understood just what duplicitous, two-faced individual you are.

You are NOT doing this because you care about anything. Maybe that's the lie and excuse you give yourself, but it's false.

You are doing this because you enjoy looking down on others. If things really were going well in the Orthodox community that would be hell for you, as you wouldn't have anyone to put down.

I put you in the same category as Bruce Lanner. Someone who does terrible things, but is excused for the good he also does. You insult and degrade a lot of people, and throw a lot of shit out there, yet you excuse yourself because there is some truth in much of what you say.

But I think Lanner got what he deserved, and so you will you.

Jerk.

"so you will you."

a legatee?

uoj is a caped crusader, zorro, batman, uebermensch.

He was produced by an exceptionally fine family - the best - and given a superior education. HE IS ENTITLED to his opinions, just as you are to yours.

In the world of polemics, the gloves come off. Peoplet get hurt, feelings battered. But, so the argument goes, when truth is revealed, the public benefits.

What I distilled from the gist of your statements, ron, is that he deserves to be paid.

Are you saying that he is "entitled" to say that Sephardim are genetically inferior to you and your family members? That this is something he should get paid for?

You miserable hypocrite. If anyone dared to make that statement about Ashkenazi Jews to your face or in public, you would be calling for the bastards head. But it's A-OK to say that about a different group of Jews?

Racism is OK so long as you practice it then? Is that how you want to play it? Do you think this is a game?

Note that this isn't even bigotry, what you are practicing is out and out racism. Racism. Against fellow Jews. That's how low you are. And you see nothing wrong with it.

This entire blog from beginning to end is a lie. You pretend to be outraged at the crimes and misbehavior of the Jewish community, yet you yourselves are guilty of the worst of it.

Nothing, absolutely nothing, is worse than degrading a fellow Jew. And you have managed to do that in the most vile way imaginable.

I spit on you both, as well as any of the other "chassidim" of this blog who do not call UOJ on his statements. If you let this go, then you are no different than the gutless ciphers that looked the other way with Bruce Lanner because of the "good work" he did.

Another thing I noticed while I was outside.

You claim he has 'smicha' and comes from "an exceptionally fine family". So what? So does every single other loser this blog purports to be outraged at.

I say this blog is a lie. It is the exact same thing it claims to be against. And you are also a lie for going along with it.

I want to see if UOJ has the decency, the basic consistency to openly retract his statements and apologize in a full posting, holding himself completely accountable to the viciousness of his vile SIN. Let's see if he has the integrety to hold himself to the same standard he holds everyone else to.

UOJ is not infallible. He claims he cannot tolerate bullshit. You are taking him too seriously. Only personal slights cause you to change your mind? One day you love him, the next he belongs in prison because he represents the ashkenazi majority.

Get your act together.

I cannot justify uoj. He understands me. He understands you too and won't miss anyone if they leave. He'll pick up his check, thank you.

To the latest anonymous

That's pretty impressive. You managed to say that UOJ has no tolerance for bullshit, while at the same time defending the fact that he has plenty of tolerance for his own.

You say I take him too seriously? No problem. How would you feel if a major Sephardi Rav got up and said, oh, that the black people in Louisiana were punished by G-d because of something George Bush did?

No wait, I already know how you'd feel. You'd throw a fit. Which is precisely what the hypocrite you are defending did.

I am happy that he is such an understanding person. I am glad that he understands you, I'm even impressed that he understands me. Which of course is amazing given his super-human levels of intelligence in comparison to my own low Sephardi inferiority.

Which is why it is so confusing that he does not seem to understand the level of choking anger that I am feeling at this disgusting vile insult towards every single person I am related to.

To recap: he has in effect said that only by marrying with Ashkenazim can my family members hope to match the peerless intelligence of the glorious Ashkenazi community. Because we just "ain't that smart".

I feel a "Seig Heil!" coming on, don't you?

(Heh. Godwins' Law has just been invoked, time to clear the building)

You're right though, I was a complete ass for needing to be insulted personally before understanding why it is not an amusing thing to do to others.

Let me make something clear. This is not going to go away. I am not going to let this slide. You want to play Judge? No problem, then you get held to the same standard everyone else gets held to.

Who would dare suggest that macho mediteranean men show proclivities toward violence, protecting the honor of their clan?

Sephardic men, known for being sharp in business (and you know what that means) also have a reputation for spousal abuse.

No truth to those canards.

Aside form the whole askenazi sephardi thing (which confuses me as I am aswarthy ashkanzi), what purpose is served by the racist crap in UOJ's original posting? I usually enjoy UOJ's postings (although often uncomfortable with the lack of respect for those who many consider to be gedolim, I at least understand where the posts are coming from). I don't get the racist crap. If that were what I was interested in, I would look for a Klan or neo-nazi site, not this one. Hate to say it UOJ, but this posting was beneath you and detracts from your larger message. Hope not to see much more of that here and look forward to more of your commentary on "our" community.

Thank you latest anonymous for throwing out your latest racist dogma.

I personally have been told repeatedly how Sephardim regularly beat their wives. Too bad no one told anyone I know this since I've never seen or heard about anyone doing it.

Which of course, in your twisted world view means that it must be happening since it is obviously hidden as well.

Silly me. All this time my father was beating my mother and I never even saw it.

Oh yes, and Sephardim are good at "business". Which means that my brothers aren't doctors, I'm not a computer professional, my cousin isn't a psychotherapist, my other cousin doesn't have a degree in Aerodynamics from the Technion, one of my other brothers isn't a lawyer, neither of my uncles are doctors, another uncle isn't a physics professor, another uncle isn't computer scientist, etc. Thanks for letting me know that my entire family is composed of busine- oh wait, there is ONE member of my family who is actually involved in real estate!

Guess I have to take all the above back. The Stereotype is true!

"The honor of my clan". Do you mean the honor of the Yemini Jews who had their babies literally taken away from them at birth by Secular Ashkenazi Israelis? Or do you mean the honor of Iraqi Jews who would be treated as second class citizens by the Polish Jews when they first came to Israel? Maybe you mean the honor of the Morroccan Jews whose children were subjected to high dosages of radiation under the excuse that it would cure "scalpal ringworm".

My uncle doesn't even regard Ashkenazim as being Jews at this point based on the way he was treated as a child.

So thanks for showing off your utter ignorance and stupidity.

because I actually have some integrety, I have to tell you that the post I'm referring to happened early on in his blog. It is not a recent post.

But I have to tell you, that it is deeply offensive which is why I am posting a reply here, in this much later blog.

UOJ probably hasn't had a chance to see what I've written. So to be fair, for all you or I know, he was likely making a joke and not thinking about it. We all make jokes and say things we shouldn't, I'm not completely oblivious to that.

But I don't feel that excuses him. I feel he has to give an apology to Sephardim in a seperate blog posting. Why? Because he has decided to take upon himself on the role of Muckraker. Integrity and consistency are things that are very important to me. If someone holds people to a certain standard then I expect him to hold himself to the same standard.

This has a long tradition in our history. Especially when Hashem appoints someone to criticize and chastize the community. Look at Jehu, remember the standard to which he was held? It was precisely because that he was appointed to remove the Baalim that Hashem was so exacting with him.

As for the other fools who are defending him. If they would remain silent, I wouldn't reply. For all you and I know, UOJ might apologize in a posting (a reply isn't good enough - sorry you have to be held to the same standard you hold others to) then I will immediately cease my criticism and let him be.

If not, then I am going to be a very annoying pest that will not go away.

Ron,
Fair enough. I agree with your concerns. My comments, however, were not a response to yours. My problem was with THIS post, which contained gratuitous anti-African-American(enough hyphens for you) comments. I simply do not understand why such comments are considered acceptable in orthodox communities. I grew up in a conservative/more secular community, and such comments would never have been acceptable, if someone made them in front of others, they would have been shot down. Now that I am chozer bitshuvah, I hear racist comments in public settings or around the shabbat table. I find such comments to be offensive and inexcusable. especially comming from yidden, who just a few generations ago lost 6,000,000 of our people to stupid prejudice.

Interesting point. I also noticed that, when I first looked at this post.

I guess it's a good thing I had also been insulted. Because in all honesty I wouldn't have taken it seriously otherwise.

It seems that if you are racist towards others, you will also be a racist towards your own.

Perhaps the reason why we don't take it seriously is because it doesn't occur to us that the insult actually targets a real human being. We think that the "goyim" are seperate from us so that it doesn't really count.

However, the insensitivity that results from this, will then carry on even towards others of your own.

thanks for clearing up the misconception tho

Samuel,

I am not a UOJ basher. In fact, I am generally a fan. That is why his racist comments bothered me. If I didn't care to hear what he has to say in general, I would simply not bother logging on. My point is that he should be above such comments. I will say, though, that given his racist comments, he is probably not whoever you think he is. And please don't jump on the Rabbi Billet bandwagon. I know Rabbi Billet, I daven at Rabbi Billet's shul, and UOJ is no Rabbi Billet (that is not a knock on UOJ, there are billions of people who are not Rabbi Billet, UOJ is one of them).

Samuel.

In one of his earlier posts, UOJ wrote the following:

"Un-Orthodox Jew said...
They must have intermarried with ashkenazim,pure blooded sephardim aint that smart."

I actually understand where you are coming from BTW. Previous to reading this post, I also looked at everything here and thought it was interesting, if a bit over the line.

Had he for example, insulted a particular group of Sephardi Jews, say, Iranians, I probably would have shrugged and moved on. Since I'm not an Iranian-descended Jew.

But here is the thing. Once I became the target of such an insult, I found myself infuriated. It's hard to explain this to someone who hasn't just been the target of it.

I'm sure you've seen some of the brilliant comments left by the last Anonymous poster. If you haven't, take a second look.

Now I want to point out that this sort of disgusting crap is the kind of thing I've had to listen to many times from a wide variety of people.

After a while, it really starts to get to you. At first you get confused, thinking "are they talking about me?" then you get a little down when you hear it, then after a while you start to get angry. Eventually you just lose heart and shrug. Right now, for some reason, I just got very very upset.

To try to help you understand where I'm coming from, let me rephrase the statement:

"Un-Orthodox Whatever said...
They must have intermarried with Germans,pure blooded Jews aint that smart."

Try to imagine you've been going regularly to a popular (5000+ hits a day) site which is edgy, interesting and has what you think may be a "tell it like it is" mentality. And then all of us sudden, the owner of the blog springs that on you.

Here's a thought experiment. Play around with that statement for a bit. Substitute whatever group of Jews you happen to be descended from in the second noun. Then substitute any other group of Jews for the first, then fill in the adjective with some trait you think is particularly important or civilized.

I want you to take a good look at that statement. I want you to notice the words he used: "pure-blooded".

This implies genetic, not merely cultural inferiority. Cultural inferiority would be disgusting enough. But to have the cruelty to insult another Jew by saying that they are genetically inferior to you is just too much.

This means I am inferior, my mother is inferior, my father is inferior, my grandparents are inferior, my brothers are inferior, all my cousins, my nephews as well, half my friends, etc. The insult pretty much includes everyone I care about and love.

This, from an Ashkenazi Jew whose ancestors were nearly wiped out by a totalitarian regime based on the concept of racial superiority.

That is why I am so pissed off. This is also why I am putting my foot down and not letting it go. I have had to deal with that kind of sick mindless garbage from too many people, and I'm simply not going to just take it and shrug it off.

If I do that, then I pretty much surrender whatever concept of honor and dignity I have. And there is no way I will do that.

Why is it that every anonymous that posts on this board is a twit?

Is it all the same person? Or perhaps they have a small little test before you post requiring you to prove your idiocy before you can post as anonymous? (Heh. The test being whether you are stupid enough to take a test to post as an "Anonymous")

Lets analyze these statements, shall we?

"It's an oriental thing." See, this is an interesting insult masking as reason. There's a meme that goes around of "Morrocan Jews are hot blooded". No proof is offered for this meme, but it's accepted as fact. Now, although I know 12 Morrocan Jews and of the twelve only one has anything like a temper, I used to tease them about this. Then the tables were turned on me one day when a truly bubble headed girl decided to slap that label on all sephardim in front of me. When I got offended she smiled smugly and nodded sagely as though I was confirming her point.

Now unless you are as enlightened as the typical jackass who posts under "anonymous" you will not like it when someone slaps a big giant stereotype on your forehead without knowing the first thing about you.

"Sephardic culture has much to boast of, but sociologically (blah blah blah)"

Isn't it fascinating how this person offers up a broad sweeping statement without any proof whatsoever to back it up?

He "knows" the "truth" you see. Everyone "knows" this. Jusk as Yudel the businessman, he'll tell you. That "everyone" who told him this probably was talking out of their ass doesn't occur to him.

What also strikes me about this statement is how he does not even define what "at the top" means either. All the sephardi based communities I've seen, whether religious or non, were composed of people who worked for a living and generally had families that were intact. This is more than I can say for a few Ashkenazi communities. But who cares about something as trivial as evidence?

"Your family is exceptional" = "You are a well trained ape". Gee, thank you for that smug backhanded compliment.

My brothers Obstetrician is sephardi, one of my family's friends happens to be someone that got his degree in biology at MIT and then moved to Cornell in research. My optometrist is sephardi. In my old shull, one of the guys was an architect, another a dentist, etc etc.

Do you actually want me to provide you with a list of everyone I know who is Sephardi and has a degree of one sort or another? Besides which, why is college accredition so important anyhow? There are some communities composed of honest working class (that means people who do physical work) religious/ traditional Jews. Are these people not "sociologically at the top" in your view? How pathetic. How utterly contrary to the spirit of Torah Judaism such a viewpoint is.

I know it is impossible to shake you of your own idiocy. It is a self satisfying one, which is the worst kind. As Mishlei says "One hundred blows for a fool".

Ron, Can you honestly say that you do'nt have any prejudices about
ashkanazim? what about the "buz
buz" terminology? Prejudices are based upon observations. There wrong and infantile, but its human.
There are hot headed ashkanazim and hot headed sefardim, it really doesn't matter where you are from.We share one thing in common, the Torah.Yet we are from different cultures, which makes our "habits"
different. Safardim are as diverse as Ashkanazim, a german jew is some what different than a polish jew just like a tamoni is different than a syrian.Different environments produce different
behaviors.People are prejudice because other people appear different. Its just the way it is.
I hate to break it to you, but their are ashkanizim that can trace their families to spain.

Just when I think I've got things figured out, you have to spoil it by showing that not everybody posting under Anonymous is an idiot.

:)

You raise a good point. In the past I would hear the "vous vous" crap and sometimes remain silent, knowing that if I shut up the fool making the statement would find something else to talk about.

In one of the posts above I mentioned that I have a relative who literally does not regard Ashkenazim as being Jews. I didn't let him get away with making such a disgusting remark in front of me either.

Anyone who knows me personally knows that I have very little patience for the slander that so many think are amusing. When someone criticizes German Jews, then yes, I do stand up for them, and yes, there are actually people who think it's clever to insult German Jews.

But aside from that, I agree with almost everything else your post has said.

The only thing I don't agree with is the implication (not the fact) of your statement "that's just the way it is". Just because that is the way it is, doesn't mean that's the way it has to be.

It's not my job to change this world, but it is my job to do what I can. I have the ability to deal with this little bit of vile racism. It isn't much, but it's important, and it's worth me taking out the time to respond.

Also, if I'm being honest, it's fun tweaking the noses of the idiots here who think such things are OK.

Pirkei Avos, chapt 5, Mishna 13

"There are four charater types among people. One who says 'whats mine is mine and what's yours is yours' is of average character, and some say - this is the nature of Sodom. 'what's mine is yours and what's yours is mine' - is an am haaretz..."

You are clearly in the second category.

This is fascinating. I am learning a great deal on this blog. Previous to this last post, it never occurred to me that the nature of this particular mishna applies to more than just monetary possessions. It can also apply to concern for others.

That there can be a person who says "your problems are your own not mine." some of these people have simply lost heart at the injustice in the world. While some are merely cruel, like the S'domim.

Then there are those who say "My concern is for you, and your concerns should also be for you". An example of this would be Samuel above, who showed compassion for what I am dealing with here.

Then of course, we have the typical worthless Anonymous poster (not the current one or the one before him) who believes that the world revolves around him and him alone. Everyone should be concerned for his honor and he is only concerned for his own.

Finally, we have the current Anonymous who is effectively saying absolutely nothing. "Anonymous" is a good posting name for you. Your words are anonymous and so are you.

see dictionary.com for the third variant meaning of the word "anonymous".

In case anyone is wondering why it is I am able to constant update and reply to this site at all hours of the day. It is because I am computer programmer who is pulling an all-nighter, or "all-dayer" as the case may be.

Every now and then I take a break and check out this blog and reply to the latest post.

i feel your pain, ron.

i feel the pain of all the black children who have tasted the lash of prejudice, whose grandpappies white people made slaves and made them work in the cotton fields. I share their slights and attitude.

I feel your hurts as my own. Their hurts. Our hurts.

America cares.

You right prejudice is unacceptible.The point being that we are all "galos" diaspera jews from many diverse countries each with its own customs.If you love the TOrah, then you must love the jewish people whether they are tamoni or german.
