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 :)

The cartoon you posted is hilarious! I like the ones posted on the Museum of Sex | Comcs Stripped URL that you mentioned too. They're a nice mix of sexy, funny, and (obviously) artistic. Fun!

I Hope you and Anne don't mind, but I mentioned how much I liked both Anne's blog and yours (with links) , along with an embed of the YouTube video "Foodie & Cutie" in my most recent blogspot blog post titled "Beautiful Bloggers, Cherished Commenters, Fabulous Followers".

If I make it in to Manhattan I should check out the Museum of Sex and the Aphrodisiac Cafe.
