Henry and Lenina play a game of Obstacle Golf, and as they are flying home in Henry’s helicopter they fly over a Crematorium, where phosphorus is being collected for fertilizer. Henry and Lenina drink coffee with soma and then head off to the Westminister Abbey Caberet. While they are there they take more soma. The massive amounts of soma make them oblivious to what is happening, but Lenina does remember to use her contraceptives. Then there is a rhyme recited and there is a scene change “Orgy-porgy, Ford and fun, Kiss the girls and make them One. Boys at one with girls at peace; Orgy-porgy gives release.” Bernard goes to his Solidarity service at the Fordson Community Singery. Where twelve people sit in a circle, alternating men and women, they sit and sing hymns as they pass around strawberry ice cream and soma. It ends in a hue ceremonial sex orgy, that leaves Bernard feeling even more excluded.
