A Kinky Stroll Though the Old Neighborhood

Looking to put some kinkiness into your weekend? The kind that even your rabbi might (might!) approve? The group KinkyJews is hosting an afternoon stroll replete with “Jews, Sex, and Politics” this Sunday on New York’s Lower East Side. Back in April, The Forward reported on the kinkiest Seder (more S&M than bitter herbs) put on by, you guessed it, this same group.

The walking tour begins at the former home of the Forward, across from Strauss Square. It traverses Allen Street, which was once shrouded by an elevated train — concealing seedy happenings like prostitution rings made up of fresh-off-the-boat Jewish immigrant girls, according to a KinkyJews founder, called Naomi.

A knowledgeable tour guide will cover the folklore of Jewish pornographers, swing by old bathhouses, and explore burlesques beginnings in the Yiddish theater. Lastly, participants join in an erotic pickle-eating contest to celebrate the learning of this nontraditional history.

Tickets can be purchased here.

This tour was fantastic! I went last week - it was very interesting and the guide (if it's the same guide) is totally entertaining. Jews and sex, perfect together!
