Plays to my biases, and talks about the puritanical moralization shifting from the religious right regarding sex to the atheistic left regarding food.

“When friedrich nietzsche wrote longingly of the “transvaluation of all values,” he meant the hoped-for restoration of sexuality to its proper place as a celebrated, morally neutral life force. He could not possibly have foreseen our world: one in which sex would indeed become “morally neutral” in the eyes of a great many people — even as food would come to replace it as source of moral authority.”
