why do you like this quote? I am curious what your interpretation of it is.

Its quite simple... husband and wife; or any two people, for "modern day" people, can lay together without having eros.

And its not "wrong/bad" for married people. You can lay with your spouse with-out "Hollywood passion".

what do you think Laurel?

I'd need to see the quote in context in order to say what I think, but I think I understand what you're saying. Have you read the book? I did a long time ago, but I don't remember that part.

Excellent quote - and a teaching often ignored or forgotten by us Christians. God invented this good gift of eros to be enjoyed properly. And just because many people attempt to enjoy it improperly does not mean that proper enjoyment of eros is wrong.
