    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.

    Did you know knockin’ boots can burn up to 300 calories an hour? Imagine how many calories were burned making this museum.

    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.

    Don't go and play with the fake boobs for 10 minutes. People will look at you funny.

    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.

    Prepare to spend a lot of time here. Every single exhibit/description is interesting here. Every. Single. One. Especially the porn level.

    I enjoyed the exhibits. Not the best place if you're trying to get someone in the mood (with all their STD/STI exhibits), lol. But, heyy it may work.
