Reading Groups


• Do you like to talk about sex? 

• Are you confused by the rapidly changing landscape of gender, sex and relationships?

• Are you interested in getting some different perspectives and finding out what others think/feel about these topics?

‘Let’s Talk About Sex’ is a FREE monthly discussion group hosted the temple that is open to the public. We try to find books (and occasionally movies) that offer different perspectives on the psychological, biological, cultural and personal aspects of human sexuality/relationships.
