Details

Every society, without fail, must contend with procreation—with the mechanism for continuing on. Still, procreation or sex is not isolated from other societal ideas of what is sacred and right, of what is taboo and wrong. In other words: how do we define sex? Who can have sex? What is good sex vs bad sex? What are the myths and dominant narratives surrounding sex vs procreation vs pleasure? And what is the relationship between sex, love and intimacy in a rapidly globalizing world?
