Author: Sara Pascoe

Synopsis

Join award-winning comedian Sara Pascoe as she turns her attention to the things that really matter to humans in her new book, Sex Power Money, in conversation with Deborah Frances-White.

Sex Power Money is thought-provoking and riotously funny: a fresh take on the oldest discussion. Following her hit book Animal, and drawing on anecdotal experience, unqualified opinion, interviews and research, Pascoe decides to confront her fear of the male libido, and delves into such questions as: Why don’t people care about the welfare of the people they masturbate to or make any connection with the stigma around those who work in the sex industry?

In this live discussion, Pascoe examines blind spots in relationships and skewers sexual inequalities, taking a comedic and educational hopscotch over anatomy, the history of sexual representation and the sticky way all human interactions are underwritten by wealth.

She explores whether we'll ever be able to escape the Conundrum of Heterosexuality if women can’t help but admire status, and men obsess about youth and physicality.
