Eros Evolving Conference is Coming April 5!
So many sex questions. (And love/relationship/romance/reproduction/beauty questions, too!) So very many answers–some leading to many more questions! Good Vibrations is co-sponsoring a conference devoted to delving into some of these interesting grey zones and future-sexy possibilities:
Will Romance Be Revolutionized in the Future? When We Understand Sexual Attraction – Neurologically – Will We Mutate and Manipulate It for “Transhuman” Advantages? Can Emerging Science & Technology Obliterate Loneliness? Is Marriage in Crises? Can it Be Chemically Revived? Will Cosmetic Surgery Enable Everyone to be Beautiful in Any Gender They Choose? Are Sexbots a Threat in the Bedroom? Is Pornography a Gift or a Plague? Are Artificial Wombs a Feminist Necessity? Do We All Want to Be Hermaphrodites? Or ASexual? Is the Internet Enhancing or Annihilating Intimacy? Is the Potential of “Sex Education” Still Unexplored?
On April 5 (Saturday) from 9:30am – 9pm at Piedmont Veteran’s Hall (401 Highland Avenue, Piedmont, CA) these topics will be discussed at a symposium called:
EROS EVOLVING – THE FUTURE OF LOVE, SEX, MARRIAGE and BEAUTY (produced by TRANSHUMAN VISIONS)
