I am involved in an academic project that looks at sex on campuses, but other than that, I don’t, at the present, envision doing more writing on sex. Obviously, I think sex is important, or I wouldn’t have devoted years to writing a book about it. But I don’t think it is the only important thing or the most important thing. Thinking about money is every bit as — indeed, arguably more — important, for example. So is thinking about peace and justice and war and electoral politics. Non-Christians often say Christians spend too much time talking about sex. I actually think there’s something true in that criticism. I think if we talked about sex better, we could talk about it less.
