Dead sexy

September 15, 2009

I saw the Body Worlds exhibit once and marveled at the strange and sometimes beautiful ways human anatomy was displayed. I thought it was aesthetically well-done, as well as truly educational. And I didn’t think it was disrespectful to show the corpses playing basketball or dancing. The exhibit was a celebration of the human body rather than a macabre creep fest (unlike, say The Mutter Museum).

But I can’t help but be a little weirded out by Life Cycles, which will feature a male and female cadaver posed having intercourse, (and reverse cowgirl at that). The Von Hagens, who are in charge of the project, seem to find nothing off-putting about this idea. Strangely, their only reservation seems to be whether depicting homosexual sex would be indecent or controversial.

Yeah, people might have problems with cadavers having gay sex.  (via Gawker).
