For its first ever long term exhibition, the Wellcome Collection invites visitors to openly explore the private acts that take place behind closed doors. The Institute of Sexology runs until run s until the 20th September 2015, and features over two hundred items covering art, rare archival material, erotica, film, and photography.

The exhibit focusses on Alfred Kinsey's National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles, which compares attitudes towards sexual behaviour, identity, perversion, and ideas of normality.

You will see how these attitudes change, spanning the period between the nineteenth century to present day. As well as looking at the opinions of the general public, it looks at pioneers in the field of study, such as Magnus Hirschfeld, Sigmund Freud, Marie Stopes, Alfred Kinsey, Margaret Mead, William Masters, and Virginia Johnson.

Over the course of the year, the exhibit will eve as they bring n new commissions, discussions, and performances, to keep everything fresh. There are currently a number of scheduled events to see. Cruising for Art is a one-to-one drop in performance that involves you, an artist, and a bandana in your back pocket. There will be a discussion Researching Pornography , and an investigation Uncovering Freud .
