Author @ the Library: Perv: The Sexual Deviant in All of Us, with Jesse Bering, the author of "The Belief Instinct" and "Why Is the Penis Shaped Like That?" and a frequent contributor to Scientific American and Slate.
This illustrated lecture builds on the author's Scientific American columns to look at the rich and misunderstood topic of human sexual deviance. From the perspective of a psychological scientist, he casts a wide-ranging eye over the field of sexual deviance, including clinical case studies, basic details of sexual development, research practices in the scientific study of sexual behaviour, and debates about diagnosis and treatment. The material presented will be explicit. Discretion is advised.
There will be CART (real-time) captioning for this event.
