I expected something different and more educational about sex but it was pretty much a collection of old photos and stag films. It is pretty interesting, however. The gift shop is cool as well.

Ever been interested in the history and revolution of S-E-X? For a $14.99 admission (unless you can find the $5 off coupon) you can step into a world where everything and everything revolves around sex and I don't mean Hollywood. They have pictures, videos, performances, sculptures, paintings and a very cool gift shop.

The rumors of the sex museam left me with images of the history of human sexuality, like something off the history channel. WRONG! This "museam" is nothing more than a compilation of photo porn throughout history (the best part) with minimal plaques on how sexuality changed through the decades. The second floor is dedicated to sex in stag films. There is little actual research or history put into this museam. Apparently prior to the advent of photogrtaphy there were no depictions of sexuality or changes in social behavior. Over all very poorly done.

The Museum Of Sex is a very silly but fun place. The admission is rediculous $17 but if you look through any of the free tourist magazines you can usually find a $5 coupon making the price a bit more palatble. They try to cover a bit of everything from attitudes about sex through out history, to representations of sex to the steamy or sleazy depending on your point of view of the underside of sex. Be prepared to see nudity but nothing really hardcore XXX. Be prepared to learn some things you never knew before and of course unless you are a hardcore degenerate prepared to be a little shocked at times. An intersting place to visit in Midtown.

PROS: Interesting exhibits
CONS: Overpriced
