New York’s 5th Avenue hides one of still most controversial museums in the history of human kind: MoSex. For less that 18 euro one can access a collection of over 15,000 artefacts and costumes, research material, and a media library.
So far, the Museum of Sex managed to blow peoples minds, fight the religious fanatics and reassure humans that we are sexual creatures, and we are not the only ones. From the fetishes of the Marquise de Sade, to prostitution and dolphins orgasms, all barriers are crossed. Forget about comparing this place with the Red Light District in Amsterdam, MoSex is a place of culture and education. You will not find any porn or cheap exposures here, but only facts and history.
The Museum’s mission clearly states:
The Mission of the Museum of Sex is to preserve and present the history, evolution and cultural significance of human sexuality. In its exhibitions, programs and publications, the Museum of Sex is committed to opening discourse and exchange and to bringing to the public the best in current scholarship.
Here’s a small preview of what you can expect from the museum’s exhibitions:
But would you expect such mental exhibitionism to get no reactions?
While any sane person would expect a reaction from the Catholic League for example, calling it the Museum of Smut, news that mid-June 2011 found Facebook in the position of shutting down MoSex’s fan page might come as a shock. Luckily the social network came to its senses and this error was repaired.
P.S. If until recently you thought masturbation will leave you blind, be informed that animals are also doing it, and they are not concerned about giving up the gift of sight in exchange for sexual pleasure.
