Sex and Travel
Elisabeth Eaves, author of Wanderlust: A Love Affair With Five Continents and Tony Perrottet, author of The Sinner's Grand Tour: A Journey Through the Historical Underbelly of Europe, will read from their work and discuss the intersection of lust and travel -- past, present and future.
Sex and travel have always been intertwined, and this evening will look at two different approaches to the fertile mingling: Eaves will recount her journey of self-discovery from the steamy jungles of New Guinea to the bazaars of Cairo, while Perrottet will describe his quest for salacious relics from the Marquis de Sade's dungeon to the 'pornographic bathroom' of the Vatican.
The event will be in the OralFix bar of the Museum of Sex, which will be serving aphrodisiac cocktails created from historic stimulants from around the world. The evening's exhibits will include a scale model of the legendary "sex chair" of King Edward VII recently discovered in Paris.
