I listened to a programme on Radio National the other night – it has been on before – and I thought it may be of interest to f2bers:
The programme is entitled "The World's Sexiest Book"
This is the blurb that accompanies the programme:
"The Bible is rife with sex, and right from the beginning it is introduced as part of the human condition. Judges, kings and prophets enjoy sex, women use it to bring down tyrants, and King Solomon's 'Song of Songs' makes Casanova's memoirs look like kid's stuff. Michael Coogan is one of the leading Biblical scholars in the US, and in his book God and Sex: What the Bible Really Says, he reveals all, including whether David loved Jonathan in that way."
Here is the link to the programme – you can listen or follow the links to read the transcript.
