Who heads to an art gallery for the bums, boobs and willies?

Plenty of people it turns out, and they're prepared to pay a pretty penny for a perfectly etched penis.

World renowned auction house, Sotheby's, has been hosting Erotic: Passion and Desire, an exhibition of exceptional works dedicated to the naked human body.

All works in the exhibition go to auction today, February 15th. You'll need a few quid if you're going to put a bid in, and it doesn't look like there's a '20% off when you buy 2' offer!

With works from Picasso, Klimt, Matisse and more, collectors will be blessed with an abundance of breasts, bottoms, and other beautiful body parts as depicted by some of the most renowned artists from the past and present.

Here are just a few examples of some the incredible works you can buy either at live auction or online:

Whatever Sotheby's Does, Lovehoney Can do Better

If your wage doesn't stretch to a 50 grand Rodin sculpture, fear not. We've decided to hold our own auction of Erotica, featuring stunning works from the hands of Lovehoney staff members.
