The X-Rated Story of “Venus in Furs” 

In 1555, Titian painted a portrait of Venus, which caused a great scandal in its time. The brouhaha was NOT inspired by the graphic nudity of the goddess, but by the furs surrounding her form. Learn the true reason for this “Shande,” and then savor the many works of art and letters that continue to be spawned because of it. No one under 18 admitted!
