About the Book
In Sex au Naturel, Coffin looks at what makes the Catholic sexual ethic both distinct and freeing. Humanae Vitae, birth control, overpopulation, and marital happiness all find a place in this winsome discussion of the Church’s teachings on sex and marriage.
“Patrick Coffin makes a sane contribution to a conversation on a subject that has made our civilization insane. Kudos to him for bringing back some basic Catholic common sense to our culture’s neuralgic obsession with getting sex almost entirely wrong instead of celebrating it as the rich gift of God that it is in the way God intended us to receive it.” –Mark P. Shea, author of Mary, Mother of the Son
