Museum of Sex
Museum of Sex Review
Ponder the profound history and cultural significance of sex at this 14,000-square-foot museum while staring at vintage pornographic photos, S&M paraphernalia, anti-masturbation devices from the 1800s, explicit film clips, vintage condom tins, and a collection of artwork. Exhibits probe topics such as desire on the Internet, the sex lives of animals, and classic American pin-up art. The subject matter is given serious curatorial treatment, though the gift shop is full of fun sexual kitsch. Only patrons over 18 are admitted. After visiting the museum's exhibitions, enjoy cocktails in the new Play Bar.
