Wet Lubricants Now Officially Kosher

After you’ve had your romantic Kosher dinner for two, you can take Trigg Laboratory’s now-Kosher lubricant with you to the bedroom and seriously Kosher things up.

Following a stringent 2-year process of rabbinic certification, 95% of all Wet products manufactured by Trigg Labs now qualify as “Kosher,” as defined by the Rabbinical Council of California (RCC).

This will be the first Kosher - meaning, they do not contain ingredients derived from pigs or shellfish, and any animals used in production are treated humanely - line of lubes to hit the market, most likely in Israel, and should prove an exciting development with Jewish men and women of all sexualities

To meet Kosher standards, all ingredients and equipment at Trigg Labs’ facility in Valencia, California, underwent strict “Kosherization” procedures and reviews. Wet certified Kosher products now carry the “K” symbol on the back of packaging, and should start hitting the shelves within 90 days.

Trigg spokesman Dean Draznin said, “The ‘K’ imprint on our packages says that we maintain the highest standards of purity and answer to a higher authority”.

Here’s the kicker though. Kosher laws don't apply to products for external use, and Kosher certification is only relevant to Jews who swallow a product (like a hotdog or an overzealous gulp of wine). So, really, what’s the need for Kosher lubricant?

Two words: oral sex.

For hundreds of years the Jewish religious establishment has been divided on whether oral sex is allowed as part of a bedroom repertoire; it's still pretty taboo for public discourse – and the rabbis who have approved the lubes haven't spelled out whom their certification will benefit. But among Orthodox Jews the significance is clear – 14 years after Rabbi Shmuley Boteach struck a blow for openness by publishing his hit book Kosher Sex this is the first rabbinic innovation to help Kosher oral sex.

Hopefully the attention gained by this announcement will inspire more Kosher things to hit the mainstream shelves. Perhaps flavored condoms...? Hmm, we’ll see!
