Event Description:

Chances are pretty good that if you’re an adult, you’ve had a question or two about sex in your life…anything from “what kind of contraception should I use?” to “what actually counts as ’sex’?” Maybe you got answers to those questions, maybe not. If you have kids or young people in your life, they DEFINITELY have questions about sex. But some things have changed since you were young, what with social media and sexting and people identifying as having non-binary genders and the like, and it may be confusing and embarrassing to talk to your kids, especially if you don’t have the answers yourself.

At this Science on Tap, Dr. L. Kris Gowen, author of Sexual Decisions: The Ultimate Teen Guide (https://rowman.com/ISBN/9781442277830/Sexual-Decisions-The-Ultimate-Teen-Guide-Second-Edition), will talk about what’s new in teen sexuality (for example, did you know that teen pregnancy rates are DOWN?), how to get reliable and trustworthy information about sex, what information is and is not being covered in schools, and how to talk about this subject with the young people in your life.

*A note on advance ticket prices: We’ve changed the ticket vendor to one with lower service fees, so while the price of the ticket has increased by $1, the amount you pay remains the same.

**A note on the suggested cover: Science on Tap is largely supported by money collected at the door from advance and box office ticket sales. However, we are committed to offering educational opportunities to adults who want to learn. If the event still has seats available and if $10 is a hardship for you, please come anyway and donate what you can. Buying a ticket in advance confirms that you will have a seat at the event.
