comment Can a Jewish woman sing in front of a non-Jewish man?
This notion that women spend there whole lives just trying to prevent men from sinning is the worst thing that's happened to traditional Jewish modesty values since the rest of the Western world's forgetting them. I digress...

@Fred Are Jewish expectations of modesty based solely on what a gossiping non-Jewish taxi driver would find riské?? Am Kadosh Anu! Exposing oneself in front of unrelated individuals is a violation of Das Yehudis in the first degree and it's a shanda that the responsa in this answer was ever printed, let alone said. והצנע לכת Modesty is a Jewish value of its own.

@Fred All of those can apply to singing as well (except, perhaps, Dat Moshe, which probably doesn't apply in any case).

Maybe I don't understand what Arayos Mamesh is. I thought it was sex. Also I don't see why the first opinion would care as Hirhur is permitted accd to it.

comment Which rabbis are knowledgeable about sexual dysfunction and accept Sholom Bayis questions?
@Alan If your personal rabbi isn't qualified to answer he will direct you elsewhere. And he should stay in contact with the 'elsewhere' to help the 'elsewhere' fully understand the particulars of your situation. There's no reason to ever cut him out of the loop.

Actually I'm going to put this on hold till the partial dupe aspects are edited out, so we don't have answerers doing unnecessary work. Ping me for unholding when ready.
