Limited time event teaches us about how our deep-sea friends like to get down.

We often don’t think about fish and other sea creatures as sexual beings. When looking at that cute little goldfish swimming around its bowl you might not think it’s really raging with hormones and looking to get its little freak on… but it is.

To help shed light on this fact, Sunshine Aquarium, who have been known for their adventurous campaigns such as Horror Aquarium and Grand King of Strange Creatures Title Match, will be working a little blue for the next month with their Lots of Sex Exhibit.

“Sex” here is used in a very general sense meaning this will be a celebration of marine copulation as well as the wide sexual diversity among sea life.

For example, at one of the many presentations held during the exhibit, you can learn fun facts such as how a barnacle has a penis eight times as long as its own body and an amazing ability not to brag about it all the time.

But that is just the tip of the iceberg with regards to marine sexuality. Visitors can also learn about how those cuddly-looking zebra sharks actually like it rough, Baikal seals play hard to get, and… I don’t know what those catfish are doing in the bottom corner, but it looks downright nasty.

In addition to learning all this, you can also share this information with everyone around you in the form of a T-shirt, masking tape, or the towel pictured above — all available from the gift shop.

The Lots of Sex Exhibit also has peep-booths set up for those voyeuristic types who like to spy on crabs while they’re bumping uglies (presumably simulated, not live).

There’s even also hands-on exhibits that let you feel up various sea creatures’ genitals such as those of a shark (also presumably simulated, but it’s hard to say for sure).

Besides all this, the Lots of Sex Exhibit is for lovers. Sections of the aquarium have tanks that are lit up in a romantic pink hue to set the mood for you and that special sea urchin in your life.

Carefully selected sea creatures that resemble human reproductive organs will also be on display. Guys and gals, if you can’t get your significant other into bed after they gaze upon these things, well, I don’t know what’s wrong with you.

And believe it or not, there is actually even more to the Lots of Sex Exhibit than presented here, but to see it all you’ll have to head over to Sunshine Aquarium before it closes on 4 November. It promises to be a lot sexier than their Deadly Poison Exhibit of 2015.
