How do you follow up with a book titled, “Why Is the Penis Shaped Like That?” How about by looking at all manners of sexual perversions. In “Perv: The Sexual Deviant in All of Us,” author Jesse Bering has delved into the world of kink, pecadillos, and odd forms of turn-ons to examine the morality of sexual deviance, with the ultimate goal of getting us to stop asking what is “normal” or “natural,” but instead to look at outlying sexual desires in terms of which ones are harmful.


Jesse Bering, author of the book “Perv: The Sexual Deviant in All of Us.” (Scientific American / Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2013). He is also the former director of the Institute of Cognition and Culture at Queen’s University, Belfast.

Jesse Bering will be at the L.A. Gay and Lesbian Center tonight at 7:30
