What do you know about sex? How do you know it? How does research into sexual health affect our behaviour and attitudes to sex? This eclectic national season links events taking place inside and outside.
The Institute of Sexology is a Wellcome Collection exhibition in London open until 20 September 2015. Three accompanying programmes in Manchester, Brighton and Glasgow for 2015 will incorporate live performance, films, walks, talks, literature events and much more. The season invites artists, writers, film makers, academics, health professionals, sex-workers, over-65s, teenagers and cancer-patients to explore and question with us.
The Wellcome Collection has worked with arts, culture and community partners, such as The Arches and Glasgow Women's Library, to help programme and produce an array of exciting events to involve audiences and participants in a conversation about the most publicly discussed of private acts.
