The Museum of Sex
The Museum of Sex 233 5th Avenue
The Museum of Sex opened in 2002 and has become a major destination for tourists and locals alike in New York City. The museum itself is perfect for girls night out, or for anyone who feels like having a slightly risqué and scandalous time out in the city while learning a thing or two at the same time! Although the museum billed as an educational institution, many of the exhibits are of course explicit and adult-oriented, making this an 18 years and older museum. According to the creator, the Museum of Sex is dedicated to the “history, evolution and cultural significance of human sexuality,” with exhibits covering sexual subcultures, gay history, erotic fiction, sexuality in various cultures and time periods and more. There’s even an aphrodisiac themed café where you can “warm up” in more than one way with a cup of tea! The gift shop has books, novelty items, souvenirs and many other objects for your enjoyment.
