In the botanical world, Valentines Day is celebrated with pollen dispersal via bouquet-toting insects and sneezing cupids. Explore less allergy-inducing alternatives with today's Groupon: for $9, you get one adult admission to the Museum of Sex on 5th Avenue (up to an $18 value). You must be 18 years or older to be admitted to the museum.
Devoted to the cross-cultural and historical study of human sexuality, the Museum of Sex houses more than 15,000 artifacts in its permanent collection that chronicle the expression of our pheromones in art, photography, clothing and costumes, ultra-modern technology, and historical ephemera. Instead of ignoring, repressing, burning, or flagellating these items, the museum celebrates and studies them in an open-minded, intellectual, and titter-free environment. Augment Valentines Day romance by exploring The Sex Lives of Animals, which delves into the amazing diversity of animal sexual behavior and armadillo peccadilloes. Other current exhibits include Action: Sex and the Moving Image, which examines how the motifs of cinematic sexuality have spread to every corner of impolite society, and Comics Stripped, which analyzes illustrated sagas of immodesty and their influence on Supermans increasingly risque costumes.
While stopping through, visit the museum's Mosex Store and peruse the purchasable plethora of titillating art, books, toys, and oddities. Or indulge in the sensual aphrodisiacs available at the OralFix Aphrodisiac Cafe. A lusty Almond Mocha Love Bar ($2.25) goes particularly well with a potent Lucky Devil potion (cinnamon and cardamom with a honey gold crystal rim; $4.50). After an enlightening visit to the Museum of Sex, youll put aside staid notions of baby-delivering storks, as well as the puritanical idea that the human body should only be used to harvest grain and act as catapult ballast.
Though the Museum of Sex sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
-   - We loved this museum since the minute we walked in. Every time we go to NYC we always go to the MOS (Museum of Sex)... This has different sections every year, there are so many things to look for and learn... BUT you must only go if you are NOT a shy person Veronica-n-Luis, TripAdvisor
-   - There are lots of interesting exhibits and some amazing artifacts to check out. Overall its really worth a visit and a great place to take your partner.. but maybe not on a first date. Hugh531, Citysearch
