Atheism & SexualityIf you're in the West Lafayette area, you should definitely come (and RSVP on Facebook)! Though if you're closer to Indiana University in Bloomington, Greta will be speaking there the night before - keep watching the Secular Alliance of IU's website for more information.
Friday, Feb 5th
5:30 - 7:00 PM
WTHR 172, Oval Dr.
West Lafayette, IN
One hour lecture by Greta Christina with time for Q&A, free and open to the public
The sexual morality of traditional religion tends to be based, not on solid ethical principles, but on a set of taboos about what kinds of sex God does and doesn't want people to have. And while the sex-positive community offers a more thoughtful view of sexual morality, it still often frames sexuality as positive by seeing it as a spiritual experience. What are some atheist alternatives to these views? How can atheists view sexual ethics without a belief in God? And how can atheists view sexual transcendence without a belief in the supernatural?

I'm happy to be hosting a great reply to that Porn and Popcorn nonsense that happened last semester!
