Here's a quote from our book of the month to give you sustenance:

"We walked back to Merton Street, and went into my house, mounting the stairs quietly so that my mother would not hear, and then in my room, we loved each other with a passion and ferocity I have never before, or since, felt for any living person, nor has anyone shown such love to me. I had never before spent the night with a woman, had someone lying by my side in the quietness of the dark, hearing her breath and feeling her warmth beside me. It is a sin and it is a crime. I say it frankly, for I have been taught so all my life and only madmen have ever said otherwise. The Bible says it, the Fathers of the Church have said it, the prelates now repeat it without end, and all the statutes of the land prescribe punishment for what we did that night. Abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul. It must be so, for the Bible speaks only God's truth. I sinned against the law, against God's reported word, I abused my family and exposed them even more to public shame, I risked permanent exclusion from those rooms and books which were my delight and my whole occupation; yet in all the years that have passed since I have regretted only one thing: that it was but a passing moment, never repeated, for I have never felt closer to God, nor felt His love and goodness more."
An Instance of the Fingerpost - Iain Pears (1997)
