Refusing to discuss sexuality results in many confounding questions, which can only be answered by filling your living room with flocks of seagulls and swarms of killer bees. Prevent unnecessary pecks and stings with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get two tickets to the Museum of Sex (a $38 value).

Dedicated to presenting human sexuality in an honest and academic light, the Museum of Sex opens lines of discourse and promotes understanding of our sexual history through artifacts, multimedia, and exhibitions. Rather than hide them under a mattress, the museum proudly displays features from over 15,000 artifacts in its Permanent Collection, including artworks, clothing and costumes, and historical ephemera. Guests can also stroll through several current exhibitionsAction: Sex and the Moving Image surveys the history of sex and film over their purely physical relationship of 150+ years, and The Sex Lives of Animals lays bare the mating habits of species other than our own, from the arranged marriages of panda bears to the hook-up culture of barflies.

After a romp through the museum, drop by the Museum of Sex Store and apply this deal’s 15% discount to a selection of curios such as books, stationary, toys, and condoms. Adult Mad Libs ($3.99) can entertain a party or assist with a nonsensical pickup line, and A.B.C. of S.E.X. ($30) proves helpful when the normal alphabet proves too boring. At the OralFix Bar, imbibe aphrodisiac potions ($12) like the Hot Sex in the City and munch on a Lemon Love Bar ($1.50) for passion, beauty, and phytochemical freakiness.

The Museum of Sex

For over a decade, The Museum of Sex has showcased fascinating exhibitions exploring the art, science, and the study of sexuality. From working in partnership with over 100 major cultural institutions, artists, designers, and academics, the Museum's work spans the globe with over 25 exhibitions that range from a commentary on the sexual history of NYC and the history of hardcore imagery to the erotic heritage of China. Exhibits aim to put sex in context with our modern understanding of humanity, while also revealing the sometimes scintillating history of past generations.

  • Something for Everyone: The Museum of Sex focuses on sex and sexuality from a variety of different lenses, including art, history, science and culture, on more than three floors.
  • Interactive: Not everything in the Museum is behind glass. In fact, the museum features many interactive exhibits, including the Jump For Joy: Bouncy Castle of Breasts by Bompas & Parr.
  • Permanent Collections: In addition to rotating exhibitions, the Museum of Sex also showcases artifacts from its collection of over 15,000 artifacts. Guests may take in fine art, historical artifacts and a collection of significant sexually related ephemera. Current featured artifacts include antique hand-powered vibrators, a dress constructed from thousands of condoms and Hugh Hefner’s smoking jacket.
  • Don't Miss: At the store of The Museum of Sex, guests can peruse a curated selection of top quality products across various categories to further explore sexuality in a unique and pleasant environment.

Customer Reviews

I enjoyed the exhibits, I read every single piece of information they had to offer!
Ronsheica T. · September 3, 2016
The interactive exhibit was not as exciting I thought it would be but overall the museum was great. If you are someone who does not like to read I would not suggest it. The first exhibit and the second are a lot of reading, but very informative. Great for a day night!

Take a friend or several friends to this fun and fact-packed museum. But even if you go alone, you'll enjoy the great exhibits. Leave children and prudish attitudes at home. If you are shy, be prepared to blush or giggle a lot! The place is on famous Fifth Ave. It's well kept, well presented and not seedy at all, even the interactive exhibits. 😄 Lots of gift ideas in the gift shop, too! (Museum admission not required).
