X-rated: the sex industry in the ACT

Pollies, porn and pyrotechnics. The sex capital of Australia. Pornberra. Since the 1980s Canberra has been synonymous with sex in the minds of many Australians. Twenty years have passed since it became legal to sell X-rated videos in the Australian Capital Territory and the adult industry has gone through periods of growth, boom and, many would argue, bust. This exhibition explores the evolution of Canberra’s sex industry over the past 50 years.

The public is warned that some material displayed in this exhibition may cause offence. Persons under 18 years of age may not enter this exhibition.
