20 November 2014 to 20 September 2015
Wellcome Collection, 183 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BE

Wellcome Collection will explore the most publicly discussed of private acts with The Institute of Sexology , the first UK exhibition to bring together the pioneers of the study of sex. From Alfred Kinsey's complex coded questionnaires to Samoan jewellery to sex machines, the show investigates how the diverse research, methods and collections of sexologists have shaped our ever-evolving attitudes towards sexual behaviour and identity.

Featuring over 200 objects spanning art, rare archival material, erotica, film, photography, medical artefacts and ethnography, the exhibition moves between pathologies of perversion and contested ideas of normality as sex is observed, analysed and questioned. This is the first exhibition in a £ 17.5million expansion of Wellcome Collection and occupies a new gallery dedicated to year-long shows. The Institute of Sexology will evolve during its run; new commissions, live events, discussions and performances within the gallery space will animate an exhibition designed around visitor contribution and reflective personal experience. The show will form part of a Sexology Season of activity across the country.

The exhibition follows key sexologists including Sigmund Freud, Marie Stopes, Alfred Kinsey, Wilhelm Reich, Magnus Hirschfeld, Margaret Mead, William Masters and Virginia Johnson and the team behind the present-day National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles (Natsal). It traces the experiments and studies that lifted taboos in the pursuit of truths about sex and tells the remarkable personal stories of those whose questions made it a legitimate field for discussion and study. The show features works exploring sexual identity by artists including Zanele Muholi, John Stezaker, Sharon Hayes and Timothy Archibald. A new commission by Neil Bartlett will revisit the sex survey, celebrating and joining visitors with the hundreds of thousands of anonymous participants whose personal accounts underpin the study of sex.

The Institute of Sexology' is framed by named sites of research from labs to living rooms. The first section, The Library , highlights the systematic archiving and accumulation central to the their craft, including objects from Henry Wellcome's vast collection of erotica. Opening with the Nazi burning of archives amassed by Magnus Hirschfeld's Institut fu r Sexualwissenschaft in Berlin, 'The Library' explores how Hirschfeld's material on homosexuality, along with the library of sexual histories compiled by Havelock Ellis and the forensic legal cataloguing of sexual pathologies by Richard von Krafft-Ebing were assembled squarely against prevailing social codes.

The Consulting Room brings together unlikely bedfellows in Sigmund Freud and Marie Stopes who despite marked differences of approach and interest (Stopes warned of the harmful filthiness of psychoanalysis whilst campaigning for birth control and women's sexual rights) placed sex at the centre of their attempts to alleviate suffering and, through couch and clinic respectively, offered an intimate space of encounter which counselled sexual satisfaction as a key to human happiness. In Freud's psychoanalytic practice and Stopes' candid advice, the exhibition finds very different and influential paths towards freedom of sexual expression.

The work of Bronislaw Malinowski and Margaret Mead amongst Trobiand and Samoan peoples offered a striking and controversial corrective to the Victorian armchair anthropology which characterised these communities as primitive savages living in thrall to an impulsive nature. A section called The Tent explores the wide influence of Malinowski and Mead's conviction that the permissive sexual codes they encountered were an antidote to the deep-rooted anxieties attending sex in Western culture and served to highlight its repression of sex as a culturally determined experience.

The Classroom investigates Alfred Kinsey's journey from entomologist exploring the infinite individuality of gall wasps to obsessive compiler of sexual histories -- some 18,000 by his death in 1956. With extensive material from the Kinsey archive, the exhibition traces his revelation of sexual variety in mainstream post-war America, his lionising of data and empirical research and the explosive impact of his conclusions of sexual malleability at a time when sex was a barely mentionable subject.

The Lab points to the bespoke laboratory William Masters and Virginia Johnson secretly established at Washington University to observe and record hundreds of individuals having sex. Their measurements of real time physiology -- heart rate, lubrication, blood pressure, brain activity, organ size - during stimulation and orgasm, established the complexity and power of sexual experience, especially amongst women, and the exhibition explores how their findings and campaigns for gendered equality in climactic response fed into the zeitgeist of the 60's sexual revolution.

Forgotten sex toys causes health problems

journal of sexual medicine A Scottish woman who went to the hospital after a dramatic weight loss was found to have a sex toy in her vagina that she had put there 10 years before, a report in the Journal of Sexual Medicine says. The 38-year-old woman had reportedly forgotten to remove it.

The woman also complained of having trouble urinating and sepsis-like symptoms, the case study said. Surgeons at the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary in Aberdeen, Scotland, removed a 11 cm-long sex toy from the woman.

The case is extremely rare but potentially life-threatening, the researchers said in the study, which appeared in the June edition of the journal.

Gaga vibrator includes a camera for self health monitoring

gaga vibrator A new sex toy featuring an in-built camera aims to help women perform health checks and watch for any changes that could indicate an STI or health problem.

The technology, which was created by Svakom, a US-based company, claims to give women a 'multi-sensory' experience, while allowing them to keep a check on their health.

The Gaga, as it is known, aims to provide pleasure with information. The design comes with a USB charger cable for a laptop or smartphone app allowing women to perform personal check-ups. The Gaga can also be controlled by another person using its wireless app.

The new technology aims to help women learn what is normal for them, and look out for any abnormal changes, which could imply a health problem or STI.

The Telegraph reviews a few new consumer gadgets that have a sex entertainment angle

sp160,160,0,t The latest innovations in the world of sexy consumer tech add-ons arrive at my desk on an almost daily basis. This week, a new set of headphones from Lovepalz caught my eye.

Lovepalz' latest release, the Ladobi, is a six-way earphone set providing 360-surround sound, optimised to accompany porn, steamy webcam sessions, or even good old-fashion Skype phone sex. The materials used in this particular adult video audio accessory were specially selected so that the high frequencies of speech ring out gin-clear, whilst the intense bass feels heavy and atmospheric.

So what is next for consumer sex tech? Google Glass would appear on the surface to be of limited use to the adult industry, however, it's fairly safe to presume that the innovations behind the much more immersive Oculus Rift will be deployed in a delightfully deviant manner. A motion-sensing headset that tracks your movements and projects stereo images that adapt to match your changing gaze, OR's developers believe that that it's the transformation gaming has been waiting for (and, I think, porn too...).

Sex toy causes flight delay

sas logo A flight from Sweden to Croatia was subjected to delays after a passenger's vibrating sex toy caused a brief security incident.

Travellers were boarding the SAS plane when check-in desk staff received a call voicing concerns about a piece of luggage. The passengers were asked to disembark and the suspicious luggage, which was loudly buzzing, was produced for inspection, Sweden's newspaper Expressen reported.

A 20-year-old woman came forward to claim the case, and the loudly humming dildo within it. She said:

I do not think it's been embarrassing afterwards. It was embarrassing when I had to pull it [the dildo] out. Now I just think it's funny. I am very free spirited and not really embarrass much.

  Sex Toys in Africa...

The sex toy trade is blossoming across Africa as people become increasingly relaxed with the idea of buying them, but most governments are behind the times, and out of step with the desires of the people.
Link Here
adult world south africa logo You don't need to be a private detective to discover that sex toys are bought, sold and used almost anywhere you care to look in Africa. At the same time though, the sale of sex toys is illegal in many countries where they're being sold, although some governments are seemingly relying on social shame -- which is fading fast -- as a means of regulation.

Basically, what seems to be happening is that the governments are anti-sex toys, but the people aren't. The Internet has made it easier for anyone who wants a sex toy to bypass the law, but it's importers who shoulder the risks, since they're the ones likely to have their good seized at Customs. This probably accounts for the relatively high prices of sex toys in many countries.

Countries such as Zimbabwe and Mauritius have actively said no to bedroom trinkets but, being popular holiday destinations, there are websites that offer tips on how to sneak your sex toy in when going on holiday.

Sex toys are very much legal in South Africa. In fact the country now has one of the most liberal constitutional and legal frameworks in the world on matters sexual. You cannot throw a stone anywhere in the country without hitting an Adult World. Incidentally, the chain, which has 60 stores nationwide, is currently embroiled in a tiff with the ANC for opening a store opposite Parliament in Cape Town.

Taboo surrounding sex toys in Kenya has pretty much faded, especially in Nairobi where more and more sex shops are opening. Kenyan laws prohibit the sale of pornography and obscene materials, but according to Nairobi lawyer Humprey Manyange, there is no law in Kenya that prohibits the sale, distribution or circulation of sex toys under the Penal Code or any other law.

Sex toys on are not so openly available In Zimbabwe. The law covering sex toys and peep shows in Zimbabwe is confusing. According to Zimbabwe Revenue Authority's director of legal and corporate services Florence Jambwa, the importation of the toys into the country is prohibited under the Customs and Excise Act. However, Censorship Board secretary Isaac Chiranganyika said whoever intended to import or trade in sex toys had to seek permission from the board. He also said, Anyone who wants to do that business should first bring them [toys] to our offices for [testing and] approval.

Sex toys are contraband in Nigeria, at least according to government officials. Nevertheless they are starting to become more popular in the country, even in the northern States that abide by Sharia law. Either government officials have enough wahala on their hands to add chasing after sex toy importers to the list or they know they'll be onto a losing battle if they do.

There are shops selling sex toys in Ghana, offline (in Accra, at least; some street hawkers even sell them) and online (Area 51, GH erotic; you can even WhatsApp your order), though, again, the government considers sex toys obscene and have been known to close down sex shops.

And women in Swaziland throw product parties, and have been calling on the government for years to legalise the sale of sex toys, stating that there's no valid reason why women should be deprived of their inviolable right to choose how they pleasure themselves.

It seems that Africans are sending the message: Governments, we want our sex toys, and we will get them any way we can, whether you like it or not!

  Extrusion/Revolution Generator...

Website launches online tool to design dildos ready for 3D printing
Link Here

dildo generator example An enterprising German website provides an online tool that lets people design sex toys from scratch. Users create different shapes and adjust the height, curviness, colour and angle of the toys to make a 3D model This model can then be printed on public or private 3D printers

Ikaros Kappler used programming language Javascript and 3D library Three.js to build his extrusion/revolution generator .

Users of the website are greeted with an outline of a basic sex toy and can manipulate different points on the 2D drawing to change its shape to suit their preferences.

The height, width, curviness, angle and the colour can be altered by selecting various options to create strange shapes, the likes of which may not be on offer at places such as Ann Summers.

A design immediately appears as a colourful rendered 3D model to reflect the changes made to the initial basic shape.

A small box on the right-hand side of the generator displays information about the design, such as the toy's height, weight and volume, so that the amount of silicon to make it can be calculated.

The tool in theory, allows anyone to print out a sex toy of their own design. The cost of 3D printers is falling all the time, but many affordable consumer offerings only allow people to print objects made from crude strings of molten plastic, meaning the result is not smooth or professional looking, but high-end printers are currently are able to make high quality objects.
