The Leydig Trust and Trolley Gallery collaborated on an exhibition of The Erotic Awards 2006. The exhibition included artists, designers, photographers, films, publications, writers, clubs, fashion, websites, innovations, sex workers, campaigners and performance Artists of the Year. For the first time, the exhibition offered the opportunity to view finalists' work both before and after the Awards Finals Stage Show and Presentations at the Night of the Senses.



In addition to the finalists, three Lifetime Achievement Awards were given to Nobuyoshi Araki, Irina Ionesco and Sunset Strip. The Outsiders Award recipient, Alison Lapper, was also included in the exhibition.



The Erotic Awards raises funds and awareness of the charity Outsiders, led by Dr Tuppy Owens, where disabled people can network and form friendships and relationships.



The Erotic Awards are now recognised as the serious and artistic arm of the sex industry. Erotic artists, designers, innovators, campaigners, performers and sex workers are profiled and honoured, whilst raising funds for disabled people, working together with them.
Artworks will be added shortly
