Picture Post #1 -- The Museum of Sex

Many months ago it was made known that The Museum of Sex in New York City would be hosting an exhibit that dealt with kinks and fetishes. What got many furs like myself interested in the show was that they would cover furry as a kink. Well, since our hotel was only a few blocks away from the museum, albear, dexter_fox, Kitty, and myself decided to check it out.

The museum is small and quite pricey. It was $10 a person and we had a coupon. I must say, however, that it was worth the money! It was refreshing to see sex presented in such a matter-of-fact way. Not necessarily scientifically like "insert part A into slot B" but rather this is how people have been dealing with the subject of sex throughout history.

The fetish exhibit was the first one you entered. We were greeted with a display case containing a fursuit and a plushie. There was also another case with a Meeko plushie complete with SPH. Next to it on the wall was a furry cock. There was a diagram which showed how most kinks had several overlapping themes. It would explain why so many furs are also very much into bondage, domination, rubber, inflation, vore, etc.

The second exhibit covered the history of sex in the movies from the silent era all the way to the present. There were dozens of clips being shown all over the hall. One could literally spend an hour in this room alone looking at all of the videos.

The 3rd hall contained what they called their permanent collection. Here there were prototypes of various yiffing machines including something that might eventually replace Second Life; a full body suit that is conneted to the Internet so that the actions of one person on one end is felt by the person on the other end. It's still lond-distance masturbation.

So now let's look at some pics!
Here's the sign at the entrance to the museum:
