One Single Night @ The Institute of Sexology - We're bringing likeminded liberal singles together for an evening of intellectual exploration at the newly installed FREE exhibition at the Wellcome Collection on Euston Road. If you love learning new things, meeting new people, and exploring exhibits collectively, then this meetup is for you.
'The Institute of Sexology' exhibit is a candid exploration of the most publicly discussed of private acts. Undress your mind and investigate human sexuality. The exhibit features over 200 objects spanning art, rare archival material, erotica, film and photography, and is the first UK exhibition to bring together the pioneers of the study of sex.
From Alfred Kinsey's complex questionnaires to the contemporary National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles (Natsal), 'The Institute of Sexology' investigates how the practice of sex research has shaped our ever-evolving attitudes towards sexual behaviour and identity. Moving between pathologies of perversion and contested ideas of normality, it shows how sex has been observed, analysed and questioned from the late 19th century to the present day.
Please note that 'The Institute of Sexology' includes exhibits and live events of a sexual nature.
