The Kinsey Institute have launched an amazing online gallery where you can enjoy erotic images past and present in print, art and photographic form.
You can access the gallery here. As the gallery contains explicit images parents may wish to view the site before allowing under 18s access.
I really liked the ‘women of pleasure’ exhibition – a saucy romp through 18th and 19th century art and photographic erotica. Notice how the poses and ideas underlying so many of these images are still popular in modern porn.
I also enjoyed the Kinsey Confidential Online Exhibition which combines a range of images with advice about common sex questions.
I believe more online exhibitions will be hosted in future, and this will continue to be an excellent chance to discover more about historical, cultural and artistic representations of sex and the body.Tweet
