Touching on taboo topics from sex to abortion care.

Let’s talk about sex, baby!

Dr Sally Hall (Reproductive biologist, Previously the University of Newcastle and the University of Sydney)
Talk about the weird and wonderful! We'll take a look at the differences and similarities of reproductive systems in animals, and ask why they vary and what we can make of unique species traits we have discovered.

Researching the taboo topic
