With the recent reboot of HBO’s classic, Sex and the City, some may be asking themselves, “I couldn’t help but wonder…(as Carrie often says in Sex and the City) what were attitudes about sex in the ancient Greek and Roman city?” Were there any Carries, Mirandas, Samanthas, or Charlottes of the ancient world? Join Dr. Dylan Rogers, a Classical Archaeologist from the University of Virginia to take a look at relationships, seduction, and flirtation, including sexual behaviors of men and women at Greek drinking parties, life in a brothel in Pompeii, the qualities that made a Roman emperor ‘naughty’, and more. Our discussion will be just in time for the feast of Saint Valentine, the patron saint of lovers.
What doesn’t go better with a talk about sex for Valentine’s Day than chocolate! Courtesy of Araya Chocolatiers, all attendees of the Zoom event will receive a digital coupon for 10% off the cost of their intensely-flavored handcrafted artisan chocolates. These may be shipped nationwide or picked up in person at their Houston location.Register
