The sexhibition of Arktikum Science Centre (2.6.2017–22.4.2018) dives into the flaming love and carnal delights in the freezing Arctic.
Arctic region is known as cold and rugged. In real life things are hot all the time when Northern habitants feel the lust of the flesh. During early spring loyal alpha-wolves get cozy with each other. Horny bears meet and mingle with multiple partners in the summer heat, and straightforward mosquitos fasten to each other like a lock and a key. When nights get darker reindeer stags poke willing females of their harem.
Not-so-hairy humans have succeeded to breed in the harsh Arctic with the same principles as staying alive: sheltering, eating and shagging. One still reminisces the surprising encounter in the nature’s embrace, and another one dreams about the steamy pleasure in hot sauna.
In the science centre exhibition visitors can peek at the secrets of Arctic dating and mating. The intriguing subject is opened through fantastic facts, passionate pictures and erotic artefacts as well as stories.
