... Future Britons will unearth snapshot of Noughties Future Britons will unearth snapshot of Noughties

17 September 2008

A time capsule will be buried in the UK in November to show future Britons how society in the 'Noughties' felt about love and relationships.

Sexual health agency Marie Stopes has launched its Sex Bomb campaign, which will see a specially-designed capsule showing how UK residents in the first decade of the 21st century see love, dating and sexuality.

It is set to include journalism, objects, personal dating testimonies and other artefacts showing a snapshot of British life today.

The time capsule will be buried at a special ceremony at Marie Stopes House in London next month.

Britons have already been voting in categories such as male and female sex icons of the decade, the most romantic songs and films and turn ons and turn offs.

Tony Kerridge of Marie Stopes International said: "Society's feelings and concerns about sex and relationships are constantly evolving and it will be intriguing to capture the sentiments of a decade.

"Sex and relationships are an integral part of our daily lives and our attitudes towards sex reveal a lot about society as a whole. Thanks to our correspondence with the public as well as some invaluable input from our panel of experts, we hope to ensure that the capsule offers a faithful reflection of sex in the noughties rather than simply revealing the sexual extremes which are frequently highlighted in the media."
