Lilith and Adam relationship in Jewish folklore

Lilith in Judaism: Lilith was the first wife of Adam. Lilith was banished from the Garden of Eden when she refused to make herself subservient to Adam. Specifically, Lilith refused to get into the missionary position with him during sex (according to Jews). When Lilith was cast out, Lilith was made into a demon figure, and Adam was given a second wife, Eve. Eve was fashioned from his rib to ensure Eve's obedience to her man (Adam). Other folktales describe of how Lilith captured Jewish babies in the night and ate them, and how she led young girls and young husbands astray. Although Lilith was demonized by early Jewish culture as a symbol of promiscuity and disobedience. Unfortunately, many modern Jewish feminists see Lilith as a positive figure, a model of woman as equal to man in the creation story.

This is what Lilith is according to Jewish folklore.
