Teen sexuality at the next Science on Tap Sept. 13

Wednesday, September 6, 2017

Those with kids or young people in their life have most likely received questions about sex. But some things have changed, such as social media and sexting, and people identifying as having non-binary genders. It may be confusing and embarrassing to talk to kids, especially for those without answers.

At this Science on Tap, Dr. L. Kris Gowen, author of Sexual Decisions: The Ultimate Teen Guide, will talk about what’s new in teen sexuality, how to get reliable and trustworthy information about sex, what information is and is not being covered in schools, and how to talk about this subject with the young people in your life. Both adults and teens are welcome to attend.

This installment of Science on Tap is next Wednesday, Sept. 13, at the Kiggins. Tickets can be purchased in advance online for $9 or at the door for $10. Beer, wine, popcorn, pizza and snacks will be available for purchase. For more information and tickets, visit http://www.viaproductions.org
