With Sex at Dawn author, Christopher Ryan

In 2010, Drs. Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jetha published Sex at Dawn: How We Mate, Why We Stray and What it Means for Modern Relationships – a New York Times Bestseller and what Dan Savage called the “single most important book on human sexuality since Kinsey.” In this controversial and thought-provoking book, Ryan and Jetha debunk almost everything we “know” about sex, weaving together convergent, frequently overlooked evidence from anthropology, archaeology, primatology, anatomy, and psychosexuality to show how far from human nature monogamy really is. The authors expose the ancient roots of human sexuality while pointing towards a more optimistic future illuminated by our innate capacities for love, cooperation, and generosity. Dr. Ryan will expand upon the theories set forth in Sex at Dawn and the direction of human sexuality in the 21st century. A question and answer session will follow his talk.

Live music provided by Roxanna Walitzki. Special (unifused) treats provided by The Goodship and a table of complimentary goodies from Babeland.


A Heady Lecture Series Under Heady Influence

In partnership with The Stranger, Goodship Higher Education presents intimate conversations with some of our region’s most brilliant minds, covering topics from space travel to re-animation to modernist cuisine. Our goal is to present some of the most innovative, mind-bending, revolutionary and extraordinary ideas happening in art, culture, technology, science and philosophy. And we invite both the audience and speakers to "pre-board on the Goodship." It allows us to look at the world through a different lens, and we think that it is a fun and enlightening experiment to partner heightened mind-states with big ideas.
