The Sex Myth: an ex-sex worker and scientist explores the dark corners of sex and the media.
What is a Sex Myth and how do we spot one? Where do our assumptions about sex and sexuality come from, and do they have merit? In a light hearted ramble through the various dark corners of sex and the media, Dr Brooke Magnanti examines the compelling connections between the things we believe and the people who want us to believe them. Drawing both on her experience as a sex worker and career as a scientist, she plumbs the depths of sexual mythmaking and exposes that what we think we know, we often don’t know much about at all.
