Please note: During these trying times…

The NSU Libraries, including the Alvin Sherman Library and all other locations, are fully operational online to support students, faculty and library users. Administrative staff are working remotely, or on site only as needed. Most of the libraries’ extensive collection has been online for more than 10 years, and we’ve provided library services to distance and regional campus students for more than 25 years.

Stay well and be safe.

The Heart of Sex

Love and Desire

Valentine’s Day is for lovers. Hollywood tends to equate love and desire, but real-life love stories are so much richer, layered as they are with varying degrees of sex, commitment, connection, vulnerability, curiosity, humor, and unpredictability.

As a couple, Drs Shelley Green, Ph.D., LMFT and Douglas G. Flemons, Ph.D. LMFT will share insights on love and desire, drawing from 30 years’ experience working with couples in their clinical practice. They will explore what creates, builds, and sustains sexual attraction, desire, and intimacy in relationships over time.

Thursday, February 13

Room 2053

7:00 PM: Presentation (Free and open to the public)
