Description "...is based on the life of sex reformer and eccentric scientist William Chidley, a turn-of-the-century idealist who claimed to have the answer to all mankind's evils. A product of childhood repression, he preached theories on how to attain physical, mental and spiritual health by 'natural coition'. He was often to be seen in Adelaide, Melbourne and later in Sydney, most frequently in The Domain, dressed only in a Greek-style tunic and selling his booklet, 'The Answer'".
