Did you need some kosher lube? Too bad, you just missed the once-in-a-lifetime window. Last week, Trigg Laboratories’ “Wet” line of products became the world’s first kosher lube, but now that coveted blessing has been revoked after the Rabbinical Council of California realised that it is lube for sex.
Apparently the council was somehow confused by the product’s description, which lead to the premature decision. An official statement from the RCC offers this tantalisingly vague explanation:
“Certification of non-edible items is common in the kosher industry, but the intended uses of these items as now revealed, was misunderstood.”
What they thought it was for is anyone’s guess. Maybe swallowing an entire loaf of matzoh whole or developing a perpetual motion dreidel. But the honeymoon for kosher-lube sex-having is officially over. But at least the Rabbinical Council is teaching by example that changing up your position is still totally A-OK. [The Atlantic]
