Jaunted Embedded Travel Guides: Sex Exhibit Craze Sweeps London
We are constantly searching for the most timely and useful travel information on locations around the world. We have always found that boots on the ground is a great way to sift through the marketing clutter and bring you the travel tips, information, and opinions you crave. However, now it is time to kick it up a notch. First, we are searching the world for folks who can take you on a field trip of their "backyard." When we find these folks, we then embed them into their local travel scene and ask them to be our eyes and ears out in the field.
We are expecting the same sort of grainy video, choppy sentences, and snapshot photos that you are use to seeing from embeds. The rub is, at the end of the day we should be left with a backyard travel guidebook like no other.
Our first embed is Benji Lanyado of London, UK. He is a budget travel columnist for the Guardian Newspaper in the UK. He also is the fearless leader of Youngin Europe, so expect his guide to skew young, but not that young, we intend to keep this thing legal. He lives in London and enjoys ranting about football.
Now that you have all the particulars, sit back and enjoy the trip.
London :: Sex
We're fiends we are, honest.
"British" and "sex" in the same headline? Surely not?! Well actually the arty farty crowd in London have come over all kinky recently, and even our highbrowed broadsheets are having a peek. Classy newspapers talking about naughty stuff is always a giggle, and this piece in yesterday's Guardian on Amora- London's first permanent sex exhibition- is vintage. An extract:
Some great photos of Amora are available here.
A wall of sex toys - oddly including a range of silicone breast implants - is accompanied by videos of models demonstrating their use. A model of a man bent over invites you to spank him with a paddle, with lights showing whether you've gone too far, like a fairground test-your-strength machine. A plaster cast of a man and a women invite you to feel inside for their G spot or prostate. "That's it," they say encouragingly when you hit the right spot.
Marvelous. And not an isolated incident either. The Barbican, long-time darling of British arts, recently announced that the follow-up to its upcoming celebration of art in the punk years would be a four-month exhibition on...you guessed it...sex! Check out this Times Article on Seduced: Art and Sex from Antiquity to now. The Barbican doing punk swiftly followed by sex?! Tis a good time indeed to be a Londoner.
