The Museum of Sex features four exhibition, a special interactive exhibition and retail store:
OBJECTXXX Gallery - Artifacts from the Museum of Sex Archive. Objects tell stories. Embedded with their own narratives, history and significance, objects are symbolic creations of various eras, belief systems and, at times, manifestations against societal taboos. While some of the objects presented in this exhibition are creations of fantasy and a desire to augment attraction and pleasure, others have medicalized origins, pop cultural resonance or represent personal legacies.
JUMP FOR JOY Exhibition - Jump for Joy is an interactive installation which embodies the cultural context and history of fairground eroticism. An additional $3.00 entrance fee applies for the special exhibition “Jump for Joy: Bouncy Castle of Breasts.”
SPLENDOR IN THE GRASS Exhibition - Splendor in the Grass translates the campground setting into a surreal adult playground where the complexities of human sexuality are at play in multiple physical, visual and olfactory experiences. Enveloped in elaborate forest-like scenery, this sensual habitat is complete with a moving sky, campfire and live park rangers.
HARDCORE: A CENTURY & A HALF OF OBSCENE IMAGERY Exhibition - In our modern Internet Age, with thousands of explicit images available at the click of a button, the terms “hardcore” and “pornography” have become nearly synonymous. But while it is easy to imagine that “hardcore” is an invention of the 21st century, the desire to sexually break the boundaries of physical and social modesty has long revealed itself throughout history.
SEX LIVES OF ANIMALS Exhibition - The Museum invites patrons to explore the most intimate part of the natural life cycle, where it is often said we are most animal-like, and apply these concepts to larger issues regarding sexuality in general. The Sex Lives of Animals showcases life-sized animal sculptures created by Rune Olsen commissioned by The Museum of Sex. Olsen’s animals juxtapose the shared instincts and urges of humans and animals.
MUSEUM RETAIL STORE - The shop at the Museum of Sex presents a curated selection of industrial products, historical ephemera, anthropological specimens, and handmade artworks that explore all aspects of human sexuality. Through the installations and product launches that the shop has participated in, it has quickly become a meeting place for artists and visionaries. The Museum of Sex shop was named one of Time Out’s best sex shops in NYC.
