    Make sure you check out the museum's Oralfix Cafe. Equal parts apothecary and soda shop, it's filled with "potions" containing aphrodisiac ingredients to help you get it on.

    If you’re looking for something interesting and quirky to do, come here. Don’t miss the OralFix aphrodisiac café, which serves up libido-revving treats and elixirs.

    Not as risqué as it’s name would suggest. The exhibits are interesting, but half as much as the gift shop! Try and find a coupon for discounted admission.

    At first I thought the whole place would be trashy, but it's actually quite educational and well put-together. Only downside is that there aren't many exhibits.
