Sex is everywhere – from advertisements for cat food and sparkling water to the way we speak, dress and act. But for all its social and health benefits, sex has a nasty side. We're ashamed when our private sex lives are made public. Your choice in sexual partners can get you bashed, stoned or shot. Sex is used to manipulate former lovers and subordinate colleagues. It can be a threatening tool of dominance in violent homes.

Is it time to exercise restraint in our sexual lives? Could the old sexual moralities of the great faiths deliver us from the suffering sex brings?

Join sex symbol Imogen Bailey, sexologist Nikki Goldstein, theologian Scott Stephens, evolutionary biologist Rob Brooks and comedian Alex Lee as they explore whether chastity could save us from ourselves.
