The Pop Up Festival of Dangerous Ideas: Dan Savage: Savage Advice

Listen to The Pop Up Festival of Dangerous Ideas: Dan Savage: Savage Advice

Infidelity is not the end of the world, it’s a reality of long-term relationships. It’s time to stop fooling ourselves and accept that out-dated concepts of ‘proper’ sex are torpedoing discussions needed to reach mature sexual compromises. If we really want to protect the sanctity of marriage, we need to make it our playground, not our prison.

Join us for a dose of reality about love and some Savage advice on your questions and problems.

Note: This talk contains sexually candid language. A lot of it.

Dan Savage is the author of the internationally syndicated advice column Savage Love and an essayist whose work has featured in the New York Times and on This American Life.


Brought to you by the Wheeler Centre. Presented by Sydney Opera House and St James Ethics Centre.
