What does it mean to be in love?
How do you kiss properly?
Where do we grow hair?
How are babies made?
Seven years after the exhibition’s successful first run in the Cité des sciences et de l'industrie, Titeuf and Nadia have reunited to answer questions from a new generation of pre-teens in a humorous and sensitive way.
Here, love and sexuality, both subjects of scientific and social interest, are explained accurately and appropriately. Sex - Wot’s the big deal? also transmits fundamental values such as respect, mutual consent,equality and tolerance.
From the Love Calculator (to find out if you’re in love), to Pubertomatic (to watch yourself be transformed by puberty), 40 original and amusing installations encourage the visitor to learn more about this intriguing topic, step by step, and throughout 5 topics.

1. Being in love
In Titeuf's bedroom, measure the power of your love, write a declaration, find out how to go out with someone, visit the gallery of kisses and even flirt with Titeuf or Nadia (virtually, that is!). In Nadia's bedroom, practice kissing (but not for real!), find out what your loved one is thinking by turning the giant daisy or check out famous love scenes lying on the heart-shaped bed.
