Siman 280 - Marital Relations On Shabbos
NOTE: This is a temporary page. We apologize for the lack of proper "design".
Siman 280, se'if 1
In what sense is marital relations an appropriate way to "delight in the Shabbos"? [Request "Halacha Sources" discussion]
The Shulchan Aruch writes (put simply): It is indeed one such "delight", and therefore the "scheduled [relations] time" for healthy Torah scholars is [designating] "from one Friday night to the next" [for relations].
[Classic sources: Kesubos 62b (points4f-g1).]
Siman 280, se'if 2
May one have relations with a virgin on Shabbos, or does one have to be concerned for causing her pain [on Shabbos] or for [the blood-drawing involved consituting] the melacha of bruising? [Request "Halacha Sources" discussion]
The Shulchan Aruch writes (put simply): There is no problem with it.
