Oxford: the naughty bits

I had a day in lovely Oxford last month. I'm sort of ashamed not to have been there before and I will certainly go back. Beautiful architecture, idyllic punting scenes on the Isis, the pub where Tolkien and CS Lewis used to hang out with their Inkling friends ... no, I'm not going to show you any of that! I'm going to share pictures of sexy stuff I found in the Ashmolean Museum!

Culture ... I can't get enough of it ;-)

A giant wanking statue. This is high culture indeed.
