A while back, some people were getting bent out of shape because Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials had sex in a children’s book.
(Spoilers after the jump.)
Having just reread the trilogy, I think the scene in question can fairly be summarized as “They embraced. They kissed. Fade to black”. There’s room for a sex scene, but only if you put it there.
Okay, that’s kinda standard fare for prudes. But what I don’t get is that in the very next scene, an angel kills a priest, and nobody’s complained about that.
