Instead, I took the laundry down, and went off to see the Gothic Nightmares show. It's incredible that these things always seem to be too manswarmy for full enjoyment, however far from 'peak time' you attend. I suppose that's good; there must be an awful lot of culture vultures about...Then again, it could mean that I only go to the lurid,lowbrow exhibits that everyone else fancies, too.
Anyway, it was good fun, although the stuff behind the white muslin warning curtain was pretty mild, just a couple of blurry erections. Even the much-hyped drawing 'Woman torturing a child or small man' was a bit of a swizz in my opinion. Prometheus,legz akimbo, getting carved by enthusiastic punishers, was considerably 'better' both in perv value and bloodthirstiness.
Best bit for me was the 'Phantasmagoria', which was further enlivened by a pair of nubile lezzers snogging away in the crowded,darkened room.
