Lets get one thing straight: There are sex museums in the world, but the World Erotic Art Museum is not one of them. Although it boasts many things that are shaped like penises, you are not supposed to use them as such. Look, but dont touch.
But if you would like to get your hands on something from the museum, WEAMs curator Naomi Wilzig has published five gorgeous books highlighting exemplary items in her collection. Tonight she is hosting a signing and slide show at Books & Books. Wilzig promises to tell all sorts of fun tales, including how she acquired the infamous (and humongous) penis-shape Rocking Machine from A Clockwork Orange and why she commissioned a reproduction of Catherine the Greats erotic chair, which is covered in hand-carved images of 138 Kamasutra positions. Dont get the wrong idea; its not that kind of chair. People hear about an erotic chair and they think its a chair with a phallus in the middle! laughs Wilzig. How silly. Those chairs arent on display; theyre in the audience. Just kidding! Wilzig is quite a colorful character, so hilarity and high jinks will undoubtedly ensue. The event begins at 8:00, and admission is free. Adults only, please. Call 305-532-9336, or visit www.booksandbooks.com.
