Art for Down There

You’ve surely heard about it, but call yourself too conservative to venture into SoBe’s most erotic cultural destination. And you’ve totally seen cheeky owner Naomi Wilzig’s Mona Lisa smile atop yellow taxicabs, yet failed to find out what the hell she’s smirking about. If you weren’t such a prude, you’d know the World Erotic Art Museum houses a collection of sculptures, artifacts, and tapestries from ancient civilizations and modern icons alike. That’s right, you don’t have to pay three bucks to stick your arm into a hole and touch the genitals in this spot. It’s totally cool to gawk at and caress a lot of the pieces. This Saturday night’s 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 d’oeuvres. Don’t miss the red carpet, and don’t forget a pack of condoms for later and $15 for admission. Visit
