The Lovers

"A few years later, when I was in military school and coming full into my testosterone, I started going to church for the express purpose of meeting girls. To qualify for church-sponsored hayrides and summer retreats I went to Sunday morning services and to Methodist Youth Fellowship meetings on Sunday nights. And in so doing I discovered that a young man can't keep exposing himself to that sort of thing, week in and week out, without promises of salvation and redemption making inroads into his psyche -- no matter how hormone-laden that psyche might be, nor how uncertain as to what, exactly, salvation and redemption are.

I was particularly susceptible to salvation and redemption during summer revival meetings where girls wore demure, lightweight cotton dresses. I am here to tell you that cotton dresses with tight bodices got me saved two or three times before I turned seventeen."
