The Museum of Sex NYC

Overview

Quote:
It's the Museum of Sex, so there are the best things to do. Videos, toys, descriptions, and all around fun. This place is great and worth every hard earned penny to get in.Quick Tips: Go to the website at www.museumofsex.com and get your off coupon, making the entrance even that much better. Otherwise, just tell the guy or girl at the door that you forgot it and they will give it to you anyway...they want people to come in.Best Way To Get Around: The W/R trains are right there at 28th Street or the 6 train at 28th Street and the Museum is on 27th Street and 5th Avenue. You can take a cab if you are so inclined, but I would suggest public tra...Read More

Trying to decide what to eat before entering the Museum of Sex in NYC is a hard thing (no pun intended) to do because there are very few restaurants on 5th Avenue in that area. My girlfriend and I found a quaint-like natural foods diner right across the street called Naturally Tasty (www.menupages.com/restaurantdetails.asp?areaid=0&restaurantid=4186&neighborhoodid=0&cuisineid=30). The thing that caught our eyes was the Hofbrauhaus Beer symbol in the window. So we headed in, basked in the air conditioning (which in New York in the summertime, is like gold) and...Read More

I work in the Chelsea area of Manhattan and have never been to the famed Shake Shack. So I figured that today was as good as any day and made my way down to 23rd Street and 5th Avenue to the beautiful Madison Park where the Shake Shack is. When I got there, there was a line that was at least 50-people deep, only adding to the craze that is buzzing around about this place. After an astronomical 50-minute wait, I reached the front of the line. I had plenty of time to think about what I wanted and by the time I reached the window, my mouth was watering with the knowledge that soon I would be filling it with a Shake Shack Burger and a black & white shake. The burgers were decently priced at around $5 ...Read More

I was lucky enough today to experience something that I have done in other cities before, but not in my home town of New York. My girlfriend and I went to the Museum of Sex. The regular price for admission is a mere $14.50 for adults and $13.50 for students, but if you are Internet savy (which you must be if you are reading this) you can head to their website (www.museumofsex.com) and print out the $5 Off Coupon that is there. If you forgot your coupon or it is expired (which was my case today) you can just play nice with the front desk person and they give you the discount. Such nice people trying to save you money for your love of sex. Upon enter...Read More

I had the pleasure last night to go to the Museum of Sex for a lecture and booking signing from a woman named Barbara Carellas who just wrote a book called Urban Tantra. When I arrived at the museum, we were ushered into the first exhibit that the museum has to offer where dozens of folding chairs set up in a half moon formation. At the forefront of the chairs, there was a small table and a high chair waiting all waiting for the speaker to take the reins of this sled. After a brief banter from the crowd, we were all hushed by the speaker’s partner and told a short introduction of who the speaker was and what we were to expect. Then the speaker, Barbara, took the stage and opened our eyes t...Read More
