Too often considered an exclusively religious option, sexual abstinence has been reclaimed by some feminists and sociologists over the last 20 years as a radical alternative in secular society to the liberal sexual lifestyle.

Jenny Taylor talks to men and women of all ages to explore the impact of the sexual revolution.
