Take One

Yevamot 53 and 54

April 29, 2022

Today’s Daf Yomi pages, Yevamot 53 and 54, give us a NSFW meditation on the mechanics and psychology of the male organ. Mark Oppenheimer joins us to discuss the philosophy of the penis from the Talmud to Montaigne, and how it has surprising connections to some of our most pressing philosophical and political discussions today. How does the Talmud’s raunchy passage inspire the way we think about bodies and minds? Listen and find out.
