Fun and interactive. No need to blush -- it's all in good fun!

You got a love a museum whose motto is .... "Please do not touch, lick, stroke or mount the exhibits. You can even get a T-shirt that says that on it. It's a fun museum." They show videos from old old black-and-white pornography. Quite interesting stuff.

We just went to the Museum of Sex in New York, which was terrific. Only cost us about $9 to get in with the $5 off admission coupon that's at their web site. Just opened three new exhibits....1) a room full of sexy "Vamps & Virgins" from 1860-1960 (like Bettie Page and famous starlets photographed in 3D by Harold Lloyd); 2) "Stags, Smokers and Blue Movies," retrospective on American pornographic film (about 20 films/videos, even one from 1915); and 3) some really edgy stuff called "Spotlight on the Permanent Collection" -- from US patented sex machines like the "Thrillhammer" and a real-life doll to sections like sex in advertising and design or sex and the law, plus a slew of erotic pop culture items from the past 30+ years. Before we left we bought some great gift in the store.
