There's been a rule of thumb in Ireland the last thousand years - if it's something you enjoy, it's a sin. And if it's anything to do with SEX, it's a mortal sin. Here, in one uncensored package, is everything you've ever wanted to know about sex and love in Ireland but were afraid to ask for fear of a clatter on the ear - Abstinence, Confession, Clingfilm, Croke Park, the Ballybunion Bachelor Festival ... what more could you ask? Find out who shouldn't have, but did; why there were lots of 'fallen women' but no 'fallen men'; and the extreme measures taken to stop us thinking about our wobbly bits and return to singing about the Famine.
