Daytime events in London on New Year's Eve

The Institute of Sexology

The Wellcome Collection's newly expanded gallery space will open with a wink and a blush with The Institute of Sexology, an exhibition that brings together the great pioneers of the study of sex. More than 200 pieces of art, erotica, photography and ethnography will help visitors get a new perspective on perversions, lust and normality, with live events, discussions and performances to accompany the X-rated exhibits. The work carried out by sex researchers such as Magnus Hirschfeld, Sigmund Freud, Marie Stopes and Alfred Kinsey will be explored and celebrated, with a particular focus on how their bold studies have helped to change attitudes and lift taboos. The exhibition is free and open to all, but not recommended for the prudish.
