Fabulous time at the Museum of Sex Event! This hot spot (Literally! The heat is always on in this place in more ways than one!) is always fun as you can sip wine while oogling simulated body parts, sex toys, and other salacious memorabilia. (I always half expect a man in a raincoat to pop out!)
While not easily shocked or prudish, I will admit that some of the scenes were just over the top! There was a display and video about fetish people into cannibal sex, which just totally grossed me out. In the interest of good taste (pun intended), I will only say that there was trussing, metal rods, basting over spits, fruits placed in mouths, and hot coals involved.
I got a particular kick out of a male blow up doll called “John Boy Doll” that appeared to be from the ‘70s. Was the creator crushing on Richard Thomas, who played “John-Boy” on the sickly sweet TV series “The Waltons”? Was he hoping to roll over every night and murmur, “Good night, John-Boy?” I met some lovely young ladies who shared a titter with me over the look on the blowup dolls faces. The female looked bored and dazed like she was watching her nails dry but one gal said that the male version had that doofy look her man gets when busting a nut! I’ll admit to being WELL familiar with that look!
Everyone should visit the Museum of Sex if only to see how far we have come with the innovation of vibrators! The early versions were huge blow dryer lookalikes giving new, and feminine, meaning to the term “blow me”! Another apparatus closely resembled a hand mixer! Purportedly, women had to go to their doctors who would ultilize these monster machines to “calm them down” and “alleviate anxiety”! Boy, what a pickup line! No wonder so many guys wanted to be doctors! (My Mama just said she wished she’d known about this back then!)
All joking aside though, the attachment on the thing – a huge spiked circle – would be enough to make any sensible woman run screaming out of the office! What were they thinking? Whoever designed those things was clearly a misogynist who sought to mutilate women and discourage female sexual freedom! Who was the inventor? Dr. Phibes??
