Reminder: I’m speaking in San Francisco tomorrow, on the topic of Atheism and Sexuality. Details below. If you’re in the Bay Area, I hope to see you there!
CITY: San Francisco, CA
DATE: Saturday, Aug. 25
TIME: 4:30 pm
LOCATION: Schroeder’s Restaurant, 240 Front St., San Francisco, rear dining room (near Embarcadero BART)
EVENT/ HOSTS: San Francisco Atheists
TOPIC: Atheism and Sexuality
SUMMARY: 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?
COST: Free (although attendees are generally expected to buy food and/or drink) and open to the public
