NOTE: This is an encore performance of the Feb 19 Skeptics In The Pub talk. It will also be performed on May 25 at Glasgow Skeptics​. If you went last time and enjoyed it, why not send your friends?

Marketer & former radio show host David Frank will be talking about all things online dating, sex & porn. We could all use some tips on how to market ourselves, whether looking for love online, or trying to make the best impression in any situation. There's a marketer’s insight into why there are only two porn sites for women, we'll lampoon the formulas romance novels use for their plots & covers, & we'll look at the statistics behind Scotland’s porn viewing. This talk will prove you're attractive to a great many people, and we'll use science to prove it! Special guest, Edinburgh Skeptics' poet-in-residence Stephen Lingham will also be reciting two topical poems on the evening. There’ll be singing, an acted romance scene, & a very interesting Q&A afterwards.
