Why? Radio – “How do Philosophers Talk About Sex, Love, and Desire?” with guest Sarah LaChance Adams
Talking about intercourse can be fairly challenging, even uncomfortable, but philosophers have been accomplishing it for 1000’s of decades. We really like questioning how society and biology merge to build what is usual, and inspecting the a variety of justifications for transgression. Now, with mainstream acknowledgment of pornography, marginalized sexual identities and orientations, and newfound openness to kinky play, it is time for philosophy to take one more glance at what intercourse suggests in our life. With all of these in mind, this episode explored the that means powering intercourse, rethink the thoughts that are well worth asking, and even addresses the challenges academics deal with when they focus on sexuality with their lessons.
