The Science of Sex With Sally Le Page


Sally Le Page traverses the weird and wonderful world of evolution and reproduction, with regular musical interludes along the way. This talk includes references to sex and has some mild language.

Are all males cheats? What do women want? And why should they do all the choosing anyway? What’s the largest number of children born to any woman? Join Sally Le Page on a light-hearted romp through the bizarre jungle of animal (and human) sex lives. She leads the audience through the evolutionary adventure of sex, from sexual conflict and the male frogs that sometimes hug a little too hard, to the supportive bush cricket spouses that feed and care for their mates. Sally explores mind controlling sperm, penguin prostitution, and how jealousy can affect sperm production.
