Haha, the best response in this whole blogosphere/twitter garbage of a conversation.

Wasn't the steak dinner / porno thing from Kurth Vonnegut, in "Slaughterhouse Five", on the planet of Tralfamador? I didn't recall seeing that same thing in Lewis.


Jim, it's in Mere Christianity. The steak is my own flourish, I'm afraid. Here's the actual quote.

Now suppose you come to a country where you could fill a theatre by simply bringing a covered plate on to the stage and then slowlylifting the cover so as to let every one see, just before the lights went out, that it contained a mutton chop or a bit of bacon, would you not think that in that country something had gone wrong with the appetite for food? And would not anyone who had grown up in a different world think there was something equally queer about the state of the sex instinct among us?
