Youve surely heard about it, but call yourself too conservative to venture into SoBes most erotic cultural destination. And youve totally seen cheeky owner Naomi Wilzigs Mona Lisa smile atop yellow taxicabs, yet failed to find out what the hell shes smirking about. If you werent such a prude, youd know the World Erotic Art Museum houses a collection of sculptures, artifacts, and tapestries from ancient civilizations and modern icons alike. Thats right, you dont have to pay three bucks to stick your arm into a hole and touch the genitals in this spot. Its totally cool to gawk at and caress a lot of the pieces. This Saturday nights Temptation Party marks the release of never-before-featured art hot enough to make Dr. Ruth blush, so leave the kiddies at home. From 8 to midnight, celebrate the sneak preview of the 2009 Forbidden Art Series while you sip free booze and hoard plates of hors doeuvres. Dont miss the red carpet, and dont forget a pack of condoms for later and $15 for admission. Visit www.weam.com.
