Austria — In the name of art, an Austrian landmark is
encouraging visitors to confront their sexual inhibitions by having them walk
through a swingers club to reach one of Gustav Klimt’s masterpieces. The
Secession – a world-renowned venue for contemporary art in downtown
Vienna – has temporarily incorporated a sex club named “Element6” as part of a
project by Swiss artist Christoph Buechel. The swingers are not there during the
day, but their mattresses, erotic pictures, bar and whirlpool are.
