9th The Sex Myth
What is a sex myth and how do we spot one? As Belle de Jour, Brooke Magnanti famously funded her scientific research by becoming a sex worker and writing about it in a blog, since adapted into the hit ITV2 show, Secret Diary of a Call Girl, and the best-selling Belle de Jour series of books. In a lighthearted ramble through the dark corners of sex and the media, she examines the connections between the things we believe and the people who want us to believe them. Drawing on her experiences she plumbs the depths of sexual mythmaking and exposes the truth behind what we think we know.
