SPERM WARFARE: The Science of Sex
with Simon Watt
At the Century Club - Soho W1

Tuesday 14th February 2023
Doors open at 6:30 pm, Talk commences at 7:00 pm

So you’ve found a healthy, fertile mate, you’ve fought off your rivals and you’ve convinced them that you are what they were looking for. But the reproductive race is far from over, my friend. We have entered the realms of Sperm Warfare.

In this illustrated talk, biologist Simon Watt will explore the devious tricks used by cells, organs and bodies to win the race to fertilisation. From infidelity, to homosexuality, to the female orgasm, Simon will turn on every light in the bedroom.
