The Museum of London is getting kinky. For one night only, you can get your pornographic rocks off in a museum instead of your squalid bedroom. Don’t get too excited though, because A) you’ll be in public, so behave and B) they’re not just sticking pages of Razzle onto the walls. No, they’ve gone all old school and are showing a series of eight erotic tiles found in the Ye Old Cheshire Cheese pub on Fleet Street after a 1960s fire.
The raunchy wall adornments are going on show as part of the ‘Late London: City of Seduction’ event, and feature old Londoners copping off in eye-popping detail. You think HD porn is impressive? These tiles are reliefs, like pornographic braille. The museum is referring to each tile as an eighteenth century erotic relief. Just let those words linger in your mind for a little while, maybe say them out loud. Eighteenth century… erotic… relief. Eddy Frankel
