Almost Mormon: But Did He Get to the Lesson on Chastity?

An astonishing news story today is that Bill Clinton almost became Mormon. Poltico reports that Clinton admitted (last night, Tuesday, 09/11/12) to being taught by the L.D.S. missionaries when he was growing up in Hope, Arkansas. He attended some events and almost joined. However, heaven was just a bit too complicated for him and he didn't want to leave all his friends behind.

From the Politico article:
Clinton — toting a copy of Milica Z. Bookman’s new book about economics in the afterlife, “Do They Take Credit Cards in Heaven?” — spoke of recruiting presentations he’d attended at the local Mormon church while he was growing up in Hot Springs, Ark. Clinton, a Baptist, said he admires the church for its high ethical standards and belief in a celestial kingdom but said the idea of being in a heaven without his non-Mormon friends was too much to give up. “I didn’t want to leave all these other people behind,” he said. 
My question: Did Clinton get to the lesson on chastity?
