The Museum of Sex sounds like an excellent vacation destination, does it not? If only we had the means to jet off to New York City right now, we’d love to make a weekend of it.
We think that a sex museum would get the attention of even the most boredom-prone student, but you’re probably not going to find a lot of classes making field trips there, what with the bounce house made of inflatable boobies and the climbing wall that uses dicks for handholds.
Since it opened in 2002, the Museum of Sex (or MoSex, if you’re into that whole brevity thing) has been a great place to explore a subversive, cheeky, extremely fun history of sexuality. It’s obviously got its vulgar, titillating aspects, but even the most immersive exhibitions offer a learning experience as well. There’s nothing shameful, prudish, or dull about MoSex, no sir or ma’am!
Exhibitions at the Museum of Sex have included “Sex Among the Lotus: 2,500 Years of Chinese Erotic Obsession” and “Hardcore: A Century & A Half of Obscene Imagery.” There are exhibitions about porn, high art, sex toys, fucking machines, science, comics, and more. There’s a research library, a media library, an artifact collection, a gift shop for some extremely interesting souvenirs, and more. All configurations of gender and sexuality are explored and celebrated here. It’s best visited with a spirit of adventure and an open heart, just like sex itself.
We really can’t wait to visit this cerebral-sexual playground. Maybe one day they’ll put a fifi sex toy for men in an exhibit! A sex museum would certainly be a highbrow home for everyone’s favorite low-cost, no-mess male sex toy, don’t you think?
Spend your holiday with your fifi male masturbator if you’re too broke to visit the Museum of Sex this weekend!Back
