What’s sexy? What does good sex mean to you? How do you turn him on? What feels good? The Great Sex Debate is inviting you to an honest discussion with a panel of sexperts about the sex you’re having and the sex you want.

The Lesbian & Gay Foundation (The LGF), in partnership with Manchester Public Health Development Service, are hosting an open and honest evening for men who have sex with men (MSM) to discuss their sex lives and sexual health.

The debate will include a panel of experts chaired by Pete Smith, Senior Health and Wellbeing Manager from Manchester Public Health Development Service. The experts are:
