Hands on Sexhibition

At the fairgrounds of old the bearded lady might mean more than one thing. Historically erotica was a huge part of the cheap side shows that travelled the country offering cheap titillation to the masses. Brits Bompas and Parr have taken this idea and created Funland, a hands on installation at The Museum of Sex in New York,  drawing on each of the five sense. A carnal carnival it features such exciting areas as ‘Jump for Joy’, a bouncy castle of inflatable boobs. Then there is a ‘Tunnel of Love’, that takes the traditional ride of old, and gives it a twist that as you move through the tunnel the sounds surrounding you move to an increasingly vocal climax. And let’s not forget the climbing wall that lets you cop a feel on an assortment of sexy bits. The exhibition, playful and tongue in cheek is on until Spring next year. We recommend it for an unforgettable first date.
