The Museum of Sex Objects

We’re used to exhibits in museums detailing our ancestors’ home lives and work lives, but what about their sex lives?

On a sunny day in London, Kate met Deborah Sim, the Keeper of the Museum of Sex Objects, who brought along a collection of objects that represent just that.

From a china figurine to a mysterious mudlarking discovery, what can these objects tell us about the history of sex and sexuality?
