330 - HAVING INTERCOURSE WITH ONE'S MOTHER


Leviticus 18:7 -- “The nakedness of your father or the nakedness of your mother you shall not uncover. She is your mother; you shall not uncover her nakedness.”

Regarding all the commandments concerning the “forbidden degrees of marriage, (Commands 330-355) Maimonides writes: “The object of these precepts is likewise to diminish sexual intercourse, to restrain as much as possible indulgence in lust, and to teach us that this enjoyment is not, as foolish people think, the final cause of man’s existence.”*

* Moreh Nebuchim III, 35
