12:00 am - 12:00 am
Sex is fundamental to society. We cannot think about politics, identity or culture without also thinking about sexuality. In his book Sex: Antiquity and its Legacy, Daniel Orrells, explores how ancient words and ideas have left a significant imprint on present-day ideas about desire and pleasure.
In this lecture, he outlines how British Museum objects, including a cabinet of 18th-century wax phalluses, have shaped modern sexual identity.
