A cheeky peek into sex

Something a little different this week. We received news of an extraordinary exhibition that just opened in London, offering a witty look at human sexuality.

The Institute of Sexology exhibition features notables from Sigmund Freud to Woody Allen and explores everything from Alfred Kinsey’s complex sex questionnaires to orgasm chambers, ancient sex toys, erotic art and, visitors are warned, live events of a sexual nature.

There are serious elements as well, including searing black and white footage of the Nazis burning the library of a noted German sex researcher in 1933 and a portrait of South African Kekeletso Khena who suffered corrective rape for being a lesbian.

Take a sneak peek at what visitors will be enjoying.
