Dr. Marty Klein, The Religious Right's War On Sex, ASU, Tempe

Hosted by the Secular Sun Devils, ASU's Secular Student Alliance & Americans United for Separation of Church & Sate - Greater Phoenix Chapter


Sex and religion are constantly in the news this election year--typically in ways quite aggravating to the majority of moderate, rational Americans, both religious & non-religious. With razor-sharp wit and 30 years of clinical experience, Dr. Marty Klein will analyze the news, describing what he calls America's War On Sex."The Religious Right is using the issue of sexual regulation to undermine secular democracy," he says. "Its War On Sex uses phony categories, dangerism, junk science, and a broad Sexual Disaster Industry. It is successfully re-branding private sexual expression into public behavior, which is therefore subject to public control."Birth control, sex education, strip clubs, pornography, broadcast indecency, sex research--they're all subject to increasing regulation and a massive disinformation campaign by the Religious Right, supported by cynical politicians and an amoral mass media. It's more than a war on women, or a war on liberals, says Dr. Klein--it's a war on sex.

His books & DVDs will be available for sale & signing immediately following the presentation & Q&A.

Gather up your embarrassing questions, sexual hang-ups, performance insecurities, and guilt you got from your parents, religious training, society, whatever… and bring them with you on April 4th for a creative, thought-provoking, and entertaining talk. Who knows? Maybe you can dump all your "sexual baggage" & leave it there!
