Living Thinking at The Body Well presents:
Life from Both Ends: Death, Sex, and Other Taboos of the Human Body
Human life starts with sex and ends with death; they’re life’s only requirements. So why do we have so much trouble talking and thinking about them? Why are the fundamentals of the human body so scary and confusing?
In this event, we’ll investigate:
- How to cultivate a healthier attitude towards sex and death
- How sex and death are intimately intertwined
- What happens to the body in death and during sex
- and more!
Join New York Times bestselling author of Smoke Gets In Your Eyes: and Other Lessons from the Crematory, Caitlin Doughty, and acclaimed writer and sex expert Conner Habib for a night of lively discussion about death and sex, moderated by The Body Well’s Dr. Mike Carragher.
Audience members will join in after the talk with a question and answer discussion including the panelists.
Suggested donation: $15 – $25 All are welcome. No one turned away for lack of funds.
