    Is it true that Hassidic Jews must have a sheet between them (with a hole cut in it) while having sexual intercourse? If so, why?

    This isn’t true. The Urban Legends Reference Pages address this issue quite nicely at the following: http://www.snopes2.com/spoons/fracture/sheet.htm

    I am not a Hassidic Jew, but I’m certainly familiar with Jewish law, and my grandparents started out Hassidic. Unless they have some secret practice not shared by or known to other Jews, this sheet story is poppycock. It may be that this is a distorted version of an actual practice. According to Jewish law, a menstruating woman is ritually unclean and may not physically touch or be touched by a man. Once her period is over, she will undergo a cleansing ceremony and can then interact normally with her husband. While she is unclean, a wife and husband will sleep in separate beds to avoid both accidental contact and temptation. (In fact, she will avoid doing anything to encourage displays of affection, such as making his favorite food.)

    Of course it’s true! How else would one have sex? Without a hole in the sheet?

    I’m a male virgin, but as far as I understand, you don’t need any form of sheet. You just get naked and stick the penis into the vagina.
