The Conversational features at Bordello

Wednesday 25th November, 7.00pm – 9.30pm

~~ Come along and chat with an exciting ménage à trois of guests for the evening: philosopher Robert Rowland Smith, male dating coach Darren Deller, and fiery wordsmith Salena Godden! ~~

Picture yourself strolling down a balmy beach into the sunset, hand-in-hand with the one you love. It might sound a little cheesy, but go on, admit it – you kind of warmed to the idea.

Whilst our grandparents and parents partnered up for convenience or convention, in the 21st century we’re increasingly bound to more diverse, yet often idealised, notions of love. Some people seek (or have already found) their ‘other half’, many have mental checklists to pinpoint their perfect partner, whilst others are content to stay single until their ultimate soulmate appears.

Today, we’re bombarded with images and tales of sex, romance, love and lust. Singles are speed-dating and internet-dating their way to exhaustion; couples are struggling to stay atop that starry-eyed peak. Books teaching flirtation or entrapment techniques are flying off the shelves. We’re talking openly about love and lust like never before.

Whatever your love status, if you want to question the nature of love, join the Conversational’s cheeky chat at Bordello. Come along and dig beneath the surface of ideas about how our expectations of love have been formed, the influence of other times and cultures have on our perceptions of love, whether we need relationships to be truly fulfilled, or if love can last forever.
There’ll be stimulating conversation, lubricated with drinks, nibbles, parlour games and naughty play-things. All opinions and experiences are welcome, as we trawl through philosophy, pop culture and more besides to challenge notions of romance and relationships in the 21st century.

Tickets will be £15.00pp, including a drink, a raffle ticket for a special prize, and a discount off all products in the shop on the night. Male and female tickets (to ensure diversity of opinion!) will be on sale from the Bordello website in the next few weeks.

Bordello, 55 Great Eastern Street, London, EC2A 3HP
