This simplistic approach means that generalities abound as Vardy condemns modern sexual practices that do not have some spiritual basis and by "spiritual", he means proper Anglican or Catholic spirits, not any of these "New Age" shakra spirits. To help us discover the importance of love within sex even homosexual sex , he applies the teachings of Aristotle and Plato, Old Testament gems such as St Paul, and almost any other Dead White Male he can lay his hands on though Freud gets short shrift , to all manner of modern sexual problems. Religion, he admits, has always been considered to have had a "problem" with sex — and his book does little to change that perception.
