comment Can a Jewish woman sing in front of a non-Jewish man?
Please don't rely on that answer out of context! It clearly was just discussing technical aspects of Lifnei Iver, not advocating a breach in a woman's practices regarding modesty.

The claim that being immodest is ok absent some technical detail about Lifnei Iver (which probably doesn't apply anyway in a cab where there is a radio available) is rather absurd. Any support for it that you can garner would make your question feel like it has a sense of reasonable motivation. (It's basically like saying that everyone can prance around naked nowadays because if someone wanted to they can see naked people on the internet whenever they want. It's absurd.)

comment Which rabbis are knowledgeable about sexual dysfunction and accept Sholom Bayis questions?
@Fred "If possible..." That's the only solution. If he doesn't have a personal Rabbi, he should make for himself a new one. Then proceed from there.

comment Halachic issues with using a frozen river as a mikvah
??? I have no idea what you mean by "mitzva" apparently. If I get punished for doing something, that sounds pretty much like a Mitzva to me. Both men and women can't have sexual intercourse where the female partner is a Niddah, punishable by Kareit. That's all the "mitzva" there is AFAICT and it applies equally to both of them.

I fail to see how your hypothesis indicates self exposure would be permitted. It doesn't get more immodest than purposefully exposing oneself to others! Why would you think that being immodest is ever permitted???

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.

Moral of the story: don't take halachic advice from Rabbi Artscroll.

@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.
