ר' אחא אמר בעון משכב זכור, אמר לו הקב"ה לאדם אתה זיזעזת אבריך במקום שאינו ראוי לך, אף אני מזדעזע את העולם
Rabbi Aha said regarding the sin of homosexual intercourse: God said to man, “You shake your organs in a place not fit for you, so I will shake the world.” [Translation by Rabbi Steve Greenberg]

Suggested Discussion Questions:

1. All illicit sexual relations could be described as misplacement or appropriation. Which do you think is key here, the wrongness of the "place" or the taking of something "not fit for you" aspect. To put this another way, which is the most apt metaphor for sexual transgression generally: the idea of things being "in the wrong place" or the thievery of taking something that is not yours.

2. While theft is more clearly moral, do you think that confounding the natural order is a moral problem?
