Event of the Week

Carnal Knowledge at the Dana Centre, tonight

We’ve seen innumerable attempts to make science sexy, but this one really does take the sticky biscuit.

Does the G-spot exist? If so, where is it? Can vibrators beat the blues? Join the sexperts and test your carnal knowledge. Using electronic voting, discover common sexual misconceptions - the experts will reveal the titillating truth...

Electronic voting, eh? Make sure you press all the right buttons.


Ug. We’re really lacking events this week. Guess everyone’s too busy with the football. Bah. At least there’s the Royal Society’s annual Summer Science Exhibition to look forward to - but more of that in a couple of weeks.

In the meantime, content your science-weary heart with two further events at the Dana Centre. On Tuesday 20th June, there’s a debate on engineering embryos. Should we use screening techniques to pick and choose our offspring? Maybe. More interestingly, when’s someone going to turn the scenario on its head and write a sci-fi novel where mutant brats pick their own parents?

Moving on, tomorrow night, there’s Electronic City, a ‘surreal and physical play’ that questions whether technology is helping us connect, or driving us apart. And at that point, we better log off, as Mrs Londonist is giving us that withering look that suggests the latter.
