Special Guest - Erotic Art by Lisa Fox

I’m so thrilled to be here today, talking sexy with the Brit Babes!

Art is such a fantastic source of ideas and inspiration. Museums are there to culturally enrich us, teach us about our past and present, offer us alternative world views. There is no better place to learn something new.

I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to visit several museums dedicated to erotica and erotic art. Of course there are many, many more than the few I’ve listed here, but these are the ones I happen to know about. In fact, almost every major city in the world has a sex museum of some sort. Your local sex museum is only a Google search away! Isn’t it time to go out and do some research?




The Sexmuseum Amsterdam - www.sexmuseumamsterdam.nl

The “Venustempel” in Amsterdam claims to be the world’s first and oldest sex museum and houses an extensive collection of erotic pictures, paintings, objects, recordings, and photographs.



Musée de l'Erotisme - http://www.musee-erotisme.com/en/

The Erotic Museum in Paris takes its collection very seriously, boasting Nepalese temple carvings, Aztec fertility idols, ceramic pornography from China, as well as an extensive gallery of brothel photos, drawings, documents, and special exhibits.





New York City’s Museum of Sex has a permanent collection of over 15,000 artifacts comprised of works of art, photography, clothing and costumes, technological inventions and historical ephemera. Additionally, the museum houses both a research library as well as an extensive multimedia library.




The Erotic Heritage Museum - http://www.eroticheritagemuseumlasvegas.com/

The Erotic Heritage Museum in Las Vegas states that its sole purpose is to perform educational, scientific and literary functions relating to sexual, emotional, mental, and physical health. Its collection is designed to preserve wonders of the erotic imagination as depicted through the artistic expression of acts of sex and love and is dedicated to the belief that sexual pleasure and fun are natural aspects of the human experience.




The Good Vibrations Antique Vibrator Museum - http://antiquevibratormuseum.com

The Good Vibrations Antique Vibrator Museum in San Francisco has a collection of vibrators that date from the late 1800s up through the 1970s. Tours cover the invention and functions of early vibrators and displays of vintage models.

About Lisa:
