Why are music videos so hyper-sexualized? Is that good? Bad? Where did it all begin? Exposed: The Sexy, Steamy, Sensual History of Erotocism in Music Videos informs people about the rise of sex, sexuality, and homoerotocism in the music industry particularly in music videos.

This exhibit is born out of the boom of MTV and rock and roll which shifted the music industry completely. Societal backlash, representation, and trends played a major role in erotocism in music videos leaving much up to debate as to whether or not this development as negative or positive.
