Editorial Reviews


"The relationship of sexuality and humour is a recurrent theme in the collections at The Kinsey Institute. When the School of Fine Arts Gallery began to collaborate with the Institute on exhibitions of art, photography, and ephemera, the topic of sex and humour had obvious universal interest. The holdings contain vast numbers of silly greeting cards, naughty objects, cartoons, jokes, and toys. It is clear that much of the collection is humorous in some way, and that these pieces are likely to be some of the most memorable and engaging... Humour and sex are both integral parts of everyday life and important for overall health and happiness. I hope this exhibition and catalogue prove to be enjoyable and funny as well." - Betsy Stirratt, from the Foreword. The goal is that the essays, the book as a whole, and the exhibition will serve as catalysts for further discussion about the nature of humour and its relationship to human sexual Behavior and expression.
