Somewhere among the 112 comments to Avital Chizhik’s essay on the true meaning behind Orthodox Judaism’s modesty rules, “Ed” says, “The photo above this article shows a shapely pair of female legs and feet, encased in ‘modest’ long stockings. My point. This model is so sexy that it exudes despite the so-called modest, opaque stockings.”

Word, Ed. You get a copy of Melvin Konner’s The Jewish Body.
