If you thought that the internet was used for browsing websites alone, then you were wrong. According to the latest exhibition hosted by the Museum of Sex, the internet can be used to track a person’s sexual preferences and online sex trends.
The exhibition titled Universe of Desire displays the role of media and the internet in modern sexuality.
