Museum of Sex
The Museum of Sex, in New York, a museum dedicated to everything related to sex, from men and women to accessories and toys. So it is a very popular museum where censorship has no place, where things are presented as they are and where we review the intimate relationships of people throughout history.
History of the Sex Museum
The Sex Museum opened in October 2002, and at the time it was already an unprecedented museum where no one could think that such a place could actually be created.
However, after its opening, in the last few years, the museum has been able to generate virtual exhibits and installations, all related to sex and sexuality, presenting its visitors with an open, unobstructed and uncensored view of a subject that is still a taboo in many families.
The Sex Museum is on Fifth Avenue with an extra floor and a gallery. In its store you can buy all the products you can think of, from the most famous and well-known brands.
Currently, the museum’s collection has more than 15,000 objects, including art, photographs, clothing, costumes, inventions and ephemera.
Museum of Sex Collection
The museum’s collection of objects can be divided into three main categories:
Documentation. A collection of books ranging from the earliest books on sex to recent histories of art, fiction, and sexology.
Media library. With images from films, documentaries, 8mm, Super 8mm, 16mm, BETA, VHS and DVD. In all these formats you can find videos and see the evolution of the way sex was treated.
Objects. There will be more than 15,000 objects, artworks, photographs, costumes, inventions, etc. The museum is constantly receiving new objects or donations such as condoms, old vibrators, magazines, etc. from all over the world. Some of these objects will leave you breathless and others you will have to look at carefully and perhaps use your imagination to find out how they were used.
