Sex: A Victorian mystery

Thursday 24 September 2009, 19.00-20.30

Victorian couple


The Victorian era was full of contradictions about sex and sexual health. Join us for an evening of titillation as we consider the attitudes of the time as well the mistruths that history creates. We'll bring together visual, historical and literary perspectives to explore this complicated story.

This event is now fully booked.
