Gee, don't know anybody here that would go :Whistle:

ZURICH (Reuters) - 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 theatrical positions.

Von Hagens has already triggered uproar with a new exhibit which shows just two copulating corpses.

German politicians called the current "Cycle of Life" show charting conception to old age "revolting" and "unacceptable" when it showed in Berlin earlier this year because it included copulating cadavers.

The way a plastinate is exhibited can vary from country to country to reflect local sensibilities. A vote of local employees decided that one of the copulating female cadavers should wear fewer clothes in Zurich than was the case in Berlin.

"Switzerland is the first country that already said from the outset that we could show whatever we wanted," said von Hagens.

"Zurich is ready ... but it's maybe not so easy in every other town," he said. "We have discussed whether it is proper to show homosexuality and in what way. This is a very delicate subject."

Von Hagens and Whalley said they both intended to donate their bodies for plastination, but would not leave instructions about how to display them, dismissing this as vanity.

"I find it a great opportunity to give something to others by donating my body, namely self-awareness," said Whalley.

Von Hagens said he and some other body donors even saw plastination as an alternative to burial or cremation, giving them more certainty about would happen to their bodies after death.

"Cremation for me is hell," he said.

Where can you sign up? I want to donate my cadaver to this so I can do it after I'm dead.

However, if they even THINK about putting me in a homo pose, I'm coming back from the dead to wreck some fools.

Mike brings up a good point, did the people who donated their bodies know that this is what they were going to be used for? How humiliating would that be if your dad died only to be preserved in a sexual act with some random woman? Or vice versa if your mom passed away?

"C'mon kids, let's go take some flowers to mom's grave. Just ignore that man on top of her.":blink:

By the way I'd never let them do that to me :laugh:

Laugh of the day. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

If you're serious about signing up your body though, either visit the body worlds website or actual exhibition. I remember walking by a poster that talked about donating your body and how to do it.

The only thing I wouldn't donate my body to is medical school. Your body is ripped, cut, chopped, etc to sheds.

Hmmmmm this sounds interesting. :huh: Looking at sex from an antomical and functional point of view. Here I thought this might be similar to karma sutra.

yea... because cremation is SUCH an uncertainty... you just don't know what's going to happen during cremation...

as opposed to, having your body shipped around the world by various people and put up in public..

Does not sound like a bad idea its not meant as a perversion...I would only be concerned with was the dead person aware his/her body would be used for this type of exhibit? *for a lack of better words*

So this sounds like an opportunity at nirvana for hardcore exhibitionists!
