Partiendo del concepto etimológico de perversión (“invertir”, “dar la vuelta”), las charlas que forman parte de esta sesión espacial y mesa redonda exploran el uso de mecanismos contrarios a las normas establecidas de la época como parte de ese espíritu contestatario, rebelde y maldito del romanticismo que iba a impregnar todo el siglo XIX.  Aunque obviamente el enfoque principal de las charlas tiene que ver con el erotismo y la sensualidad, la sesión se abre no solo a otras manifestaciones de la sexualidad humana como la pornografía, el fetichismo, la homosexualidad, la pedofilia, el sadomasoquismo, etc., sino también a otras que caen muy de lleno dentro de ese espíritu transgresor y desafiante que definió el siglo XIX como la locura, la enfermedad, el higienismo y el trastorno de la personalidad, ejemplos de ese proceso de desacralización y deshumanización que trajo consigo la llegada de la modernidad.
