In their quest for that holy grail of sex psychology, a definition of "sexual normalcy," pioneering clinicians like Alfred Kinsey and Master and Johnson ended up dropping their subjects into pits of kinkiness and perversion. The sex-art duo Davis & Davis makes the most of this funny and revealing paradox with carefully calibrated psycho-sexual tests of its own ("Sexercycle," "Teeter Meter," "Democratic Penis," "International Sex Appeal Test"), with litigious instructions posted next to oddly wholesome-looking contraptions.
