Comic Stripped- Great Winter date
The winter months and brutal cold can tempt even the most cosmopolitan girl to stay in an hibernate. If you're like me and are struggling with the bleak winter weather but still want to be out having fun in the city- the Museum of Sex on 5th Avenue is host to a great new (indoor!) date venue:
The museum's latest exhibit, Comic-stripped consists of 150 pieces includingL drawings, illustrated
books, comic books, magazines, and videos that have used animated characters to explore American sexuality. The artifacts range from "dirty drawings" that were prohibited in the Depression to American icons of today (ie Marge simpson on the cover November 2009 Playboy). My personal favourite piece was Paul Krassner's 1967 parody "The Disneyland Memorial" which was also used as a wallpaper back drop for one of the exhibits main wall.
I definitely recommend checking it out the exhibit is open now at the Museum of Sex:
233 5th Avenue (at 27th Street)
And be sure to sure to check out there aphrodisiac cafe downstairs for some sexy snacks and drinks :)
