Opening Reception - Sexology: Science & Sensationalism

Cover art from "Sexology" magazine

Explore the contradictions and curiosities of “Sexology” magazine in this student-designed exhibit!

From 1933 to 1983, Sexology magazine brought news and information about sexuality and sex research to the American public. Sitting at a crossroads between sex education and sensationalist tabloid, the magazine covered a wide range of topics such as relationships, reproductive health, sexual orientation, gender identity, sex work, and sexually transmitted diseases. Sexology: Science & Sensationalism explores the contradictions and curiosities of Sexology magazine by examining its coverage of key topics that remain deeply relevant in 21st century society.
