Frequent FM commenter MalachHamovies comments on Harry Maryles blog:
I heard from a extremely reliable source that gerrer men:
1) cannot show any affection towards their wives (chibuk v'neishuk) even during intimacy
2)cannot be with their wife (outside of mikva night) unless they get permission from their "kommadent" (superior)
3) wives must walk in back of husbands
4) After giving birth wife cannot go to mikvah for 1/2 year
I heard they have alot of weird "kedusha vtahara" issues which was instituted by the gerrer rebbe Bais Yisroel (obviously molesting boys isn't part of k'disha v'taharu) that has nothing to do with shulchan aruch.
And people thought chabad was nuts ?
Can you conform any of this ?
Another commenter there replies:
MH: I do know that Ger does not believe in foreplay, they hold it is assur [forbidden], as for walking behind, that is common knowledge.…
Is this really true? If it is, what a disgusting perverse variant of haredi Judaism Ger has turned out to be.
