DescriptionA colour advert with sound promoting Life Magazine's three week feature on 'the future of sex'.

Shows a brick wall, and then - inside the house - a couple entwined on a sofa. Next we see an androgynous heterosexual couple sitting on a bed and finally a masculine figure in a blonde wig and dress working at a desk, followed by a shot of the magazine resting on on red velvet fabric.

Commentary: 'This week's Observer LIfe Magazine investigates the new sexual phenomenon: vampirism, androgynous love and review journalist Richard Ingrams' sex change. The future of sex, explored in this Sunday's Observer.'

The advert ends with a close up of Richard Ingrams declaring 'I have not had a sex change!'

The advert starts at 2.44 on the mp4 file. Duration: 30 seconds.
