Great North Nights - Bits & Bobs: The Anatomy of Sex
Come and explore the structure, function, development, history and significance of the bits and bobs that make up our genitourinary and pelvic anatomy.

Learn about this anatomy from experts based at Newcastle University and the University of Sunderland in a fun, relaxed and inclusive environment.

Scattered around the museum you will find a range of interactive stations and activities to take part in. This event is part of a series of events taking place in the build-up to World Anatomy Day on 15 October.

Jump into the world of developmental anatomy – what shapes our internal and external anatomy. Just as we are different on the outside, we are different on the inside. Led by Dr Elliot Brooks, University of Sheffield alumni.

Take the journey of a sperm through the development of seminal fluid. Learn about the many elements that equip the sperm for its arduous journey after leaving the body! Led by Dr Kate Dulohery, University of Sunderland.

Follow the pathway of a human egg cell and learn about the structures it will pass through on its way to fertilisation or menstruation. Led by Dr Kate Dulohery, University of Sunderland.

We can learn so much from the size and shape of the pelvic bones. Through various interactive activities you will investigate the secrets the pelvic bones can hold, including how they have evolved over time and how they vary between people. Led by Dr Emma Saunders, Newcastle University.

Join Olivia for a tour of her mini-exhibition The Way My Body Feels. Led by Olivia Turner, Newcastle University.

Using clay, you will create your own model or representation of the external genitalia. The creative process will allow you to learn about the different features and anatomical terms of the external genitalia as you create your own piece of art. Led by Kayleigh Scotcher, Newcastle University.

Discover how the nervous system links to sex and arousal. Led by Dr Bas Olthof, Newcastle University.

The language we use to describe sex and pelvic anatomy has changed and developed significantly over time. Learn about anatomical terminology versus the slang used to describe our bits and bobs, and explore the history of such terminology.
