BODY WORLDS PLANS CADAVER SHOW DEDICATED TO SEX
German anatomists plan a new show dedicated solely to dead bodies having sex as part of the Body Worlds exhibitions. Gunther von Hagens and his wife Angelina Whalley show corpses prepared using a technique invented by von Hagens called "plastination," that removes water from specimens and preserves them with silicon rubber or epoxy resin. "It's not my intention to show certain sexual poses. My goal is really to show the anatomy and the function," Body Worlds creative director Whalley told Reuters in an interview, adding the sex exhibition may open next year. Body Worlds exhibitions, visited by 27 million people across the world, have been criticized for presenting entire corpses, stripped of skin to reveal the muscles and organs underneath, in lifelike and often the atrical positions. Von Hagens has already triggered uproar with a new exhibit which shows just two copulating corpses.
