Some good points but some highly contentious points.
"It could be argued that all Sex is recreational,these days"..What a deplorable abdication of moral standards,this Doctor is displaying.Not everyone has plummeted to the levels of the gutter,within the Medical profession,no matter how trendy and "Right on" such a point of view may be.
Did the Doctor read this in "The Guardian?"
