The Origins of Sex :: 性的起源 18:00 17th Mar / The Bookworm – Beijing

Faramerz Dabhoiwala has been described as the Stephen Hawking of sex, and his book, The Origins of Sex: A History of the First Sexual Revolution, has been acclaimed around the world as one of the best nonfiction debuts of recent years. In this witty, richly illustrated talk, he explains the origins of modern sexual culture in the west – the growth of sexual freedom; how the first sexual revolution affected men and women, homosexuals and heterosexuals; the birth of sexual celebrity; and how we came to live in a world where sex is supposedly private, yet ever more publicized. Moderated by Jack Smith, LGBT editor at Time Out Beijing. This event is in English and Chinese.

Faramerz Dabhoiwala被誉为性学界的史蒂芬.霍金,而他的著作《性的起源:第一次性革命史》则被称赞为近年来全世界最好的非小说类处女作之一。在这次风趣而例证丰富的讲坛中,他将为大家介绍西方现代性文化的起源——包括性自由的发展,第一次性革命对男人和女人的影响,同性恋与异性恋,性名人的诞生,以及我们是如何生活在性,这个原本私密却不断被公开化的世界中的。
