The Science of Sex 

Thursday, May 15

Don't let the title fool you--The Science of Sex is not cleverly disguised porn for the nerd-squad set. Instead, it's porn for insects. That's right, everything weird and mildly disgusting about the mating habits of non-human beings will be up for discussion during Discovery Center of Idaho's upcoming adults-only night on Thursday, May 15.

Zoo Boise will give a presentation on the strange mating habits of the six-legged set, including a show-and-tell display of live stick bugs--little Amazonian gals who mate either sexually or asexually, depending on the environment. Who knows, maybe they got wind of the bedbug method--aptly named "traumatic insemination"--and decided they wanted no part of it.

If that's too graphic for your liking, head for the tongue-in cheek performance of Dr. Tatiana's Sex Advice To All Creation, a hilarious book by author Olivia Judson devoted to the origins of biological propagation. The single nod to human procreation will come by way of Dr. Dawn Shepherd, presenting research data gleaned from the (too often) bizarre world of online dating.

Party tents in the back alley will offer ample food and adult libations, including live music by local band Great Bait. But leave the kids at home for this one--it's strictly an over-21 event.
