    • Synopsis
    • Eros: divine gift or diabolical power? Throughout the ages all religions have striven to regiment people’s sex lives and to steer them into orderly channels, to avoid excesses and reign in base impulses by means of divine commandments.

      How can the anarchic power of sexuality be tamed when one is young? What is permitted and what is not? What effect do the values prescribed by various religions have on love, marriage and sexual activity in our present day and age?

      The three-part series FAITH LOVE DESIRE explores this in five world religions: Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism.
