The London Underground – Cleaning Up The Kinsey Poster

Officials of the London Underground have objected to a poster advertising the movie Kinsey and insisted on changes. “When I first heard about the objections, I envisaged a robust image of, say, a youth coupling with a horse; after all, it was Kinsey’s research that revealed 17% of American farmhands had sex with their four-footed charges. But no, it was the naughty words that bothered the Tube censors. They demanded changes to the lettering that runs behind an image of Neeson as Kinsey: whereas once there was the legend “orgasms, masturbation and sleaze”, now the punters merely have to grapple with “pleasure” and “sexually”. Yuck!”
