A Night of Better Conversation: Sex
Join The School of Life for a playful alternative to the conventional Valentines Night affair.
A Night of Better Conversation is a chance to engage with minds moulded by forces different to our own, and to go beyond our comfort zone by taking risks in what we are willing to share. Whatever your feelings are about sex & sexuality, join us for an evening of adventurous conversations, as we explore our desires, our fears and our potential future selves.
The night will be broken into theory and practice. You will begin by learning a specific technique for better conversation and then invited to practice the technique with a small group of other people. As we explore the art of conversation, we will venture into the theme of sex and sexuality. Who have you discussed sex with? How can thinking about sex help us to lead a more fulfilling life? How can we think and talk about sex differently in everyday life?

About A Night of Better Conversation
Our lives are so often filled with superficial talk, from office chitchat to commentaries on last night's television. How can we have conversations that inspire us to think in new ways, that stimulate our curiosity and that prompt us to say things we've never said before?
A Night of Better Conversation has been designed to help us enjoy rich and memorable conversations about things that really matter in life, inspired by the ideas of great thinkers and philosophers.
This interactive and social evening is split in to equal parts facilitated and presented content and group conversation. Participants will be encouraged to meet and converse with as many different people as they can to explore and interact a diverse range of ideas and ways of thinking.
