Writer Howard Jacobson celebrates the way British artists depict sex and desire, and argues that the most compelling expression is to be found where it is to be expected least: in the art of the Victorians. Considers the work of artists such as William Etty and the popularity of nude paintings, but within a context of a moral and psychological awareness of consequences within the works.
