You've no doubt seen plenty of headlines like these: "7 Steps to Attract the Love of Your Life" and "5 Deadly Mistakes Married Couples Make". But have they ever really changed the course of an intimate relationship for you?

Following closely on the heels of Valentines Day, Australian authors Rachel Hills and Skye Cleary will unpack the sociology and philosophy of love, sex and romance, looking beyond the kind of click-bait that tends to dominate relationship advice in the internet age. Join us for a conversation in which we explore and expose some of the myths, fantasies and unspoken assumptions we hold on to with our most intimate relationships.

The panel discussion will be moderated by Monica McCarthy.
