What does sex mean to human beings? Why is it good? How do love and sex relate? When is it moral to have sex with someone? Is sexual orientation volitional or deterministic? Are masculinity and femininity objective?

Philosopher Jason Stotts will speak on this topic for one-hour followed by an hour of discussion. Jason invites you to e-mail him questions in advance at [email protected] Please put "Ohio Objectivist Society" in the subject line to avoid spam filters.

Please read or review:
