No, seriously. $25 gets you into what will easily be the more forward thinking, interesting, and down right motherfucking AWESOME conference of this sufficiently large period of time surrounding the point at which the conference happens.

From the depiction of a vulva in a cave painting to the newest internet porno, technology and sexuality have always been closely linked. No one can predict what the future will bring, but history indicates that sex will continue to play an essential role in technological development.
