King Arthur didn't say that a knight had to be chaste;
he said that a knight should fearlessly risk his life
for justice and the common good, which was as good
as lifelong chastity and piety in the soul-saving

(Perhaps this is why, on a least two occasions in
_TlB_, a knight who is expelled from knighthood
(in a lovely ceremony, BTW) chooses to become a
Franciscan friar.)

I also question whether chastity precludes sex.
