Philosophers' Café

Understanding sex, consent and aging in relationships

How do sexual relationships change over time? How do older generations engage with youth in conversations about sex? What does that means within the current climate of conversations on sexual violence, consent, relationships and boundaries?

Refreshments will be provided.

Hosted by the Sexual Violence Support and Prevention Office (SVSPO) at SFU as a part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). Learn more about SAAM at
