How should one answer a Hindu/Muslim who questions the sexual nature in Songs of Solomon?

When a Hindu scholar or a Muslim asks me about the sexual nature (they claim so) of "Songs of Solomon", how I should answer him?

This is more of a practical question. Even if a new believer asks us "how to respond to my eight years old child which ask the meaning of the verses found in the Songs of Solomon". I would request readers throw more light into this issue.

I would also copy the URL of the site which addresses Swami Vivekananda's comprehension on contemporary christianity, which would give you broad insight of what in going on in India among the learned Hindu scholars.
