Museum of Sex

Are you blushing yet?
Wow. What can we say about this place, other than that its curators are certainly well-versed in the art and history of the sensual arts? Now, don’t blush! That’s just an anti-onanism device! (Okay, you can blush. It’ll be pretty hard not to when you see other vintage Victorian-era sexual aides saddled up next to modern items of S&M torture.) We visited “MoSex” most recently when an exhibit detailing the “live” lovemaking of wild animals caught on tape was all the rage! Don’t worry, a counterpart showing the decade’s best celebrity-driven selfie vids proved that humans often have even less shame when it comes to showing off! (Tsk-tsk-tsk Colin Farrell and Tonya Harding!) Can’t handle all of that explicitness? Why not just head to the R-rated ground floor gift shop instead? It’s certainly stocked with unique items you never thought you’d find in a “museum.” MoSex is open Sunday through Thursday from 10:00 AM until 8:00 PM and on the weekends until 9:00 PM. Admission is $17.50 USD for adults. (Those under 18 are, understandably, not admitted.)
