Thoughtsforward organises Rush Hour Lectures in April - get excited and turn up!

Cramped, stinky tube carriages? Boo!
Wine, brainfun and giggles? Hurrah!

During the month of April Thoughtsforward is organising The Rush Hour Lectures; a series of events and talks which anyone can attend. From the dark comedies of Machiavelli through to explorations of the Grime scene, all sorts of research interests are presented in a fun and informal way. All the lectures open their doors at 17.10 for a 17.30 start, and promise FREE WINE.

The first lecture is this Friday, entitled "Masturbation - A Natural History". This lecture seeks to discuss the differences between male and female masturbation in humans and non-humans from evolutionary biological and sociological perspectives. In what ways might it be reproductively
advantageous to tickle the kitten or spank the monkey? Join former UCL alumnus Alexis Hatto for a frank and stimulating discourse on self-inflicted intercourse.
