The author examines the intersection of sexuality and religion through the framework of conversations between the author and a gay priest to discuss the nature of secular and spiritual friendship, of religious thought on same-sex marriage, of the relation of the body to God, of the mission of charity enacted by the drag troop »Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence«, of the biblical prohibitions on improper pleasures of the body, and of the history of how the church has viewed the body and desire. Browning manages to bring in a host of influences to his discussion: Descartes, Locke, Greek Myth, Christian Myth, Buddhist myth, Harry Potter, St. Thomas, as well as modern writers like Jeanette Winterson, John Boswell. The result is a discourse on how the self and sexuality has been interpreted throughout the ages.
