    Gay Sex and the City: London

    Gay Sex and the City: London

    The history of homosexuality in the city of London goes back hundred of years.

During this time the science of sexology was born and the first steps in the process of understanding same-sex attraction laid the framework for truly understanding homosexuality once and for all.
