    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.

    A very interesting and eclectic place to visit, demands an open mind! There are a couple of great exhibitions featured at the museum at the moment, and a bouncy castle of boobs!

    Was expecting a bit more, but informative and interesting nonetheless. Might check out their online site for current exhibits before heading over. <$20 for admission. Worth visiting at least once!

    If you don't want to pay to visit the exhibits in the museum you can enjoy what the store has to offer for free. Very good books & also products to choose from.

    The museum itself only takes an hour to see everything and closes late, so it's a good museum to go to when all the others have closed

    Never miss the cafe. Its in the basement. They serve good drinks plus you get $2 off by checking in. Bartender was very nice too. Will definitely be back.

    Save your $20 skip the mues go straight to the cafe or cocktail bar & don't get the beats me cocktail! More boring than mass! Very limited exhibits. Very prudish. No diversity. More nature than human.

    Use the restroom before coming here...I went in to the lady's room and was soooo disgusted, that I walked right out. The museum itself, the shop, and bar are otherwise very nice! :)

    The burlesque exhibit is really good. Actually all of them are. It's a Museum you can actually have fun with your friends and so so interesting. Also, great store.

    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.

    You can find discounted tickets on Groupon. So don't worry about the comments complaining about the price. There are also student discounts.

    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.

    You can buy the best sex toys but the museum itself is not as impressive as I hope it would be considering its a museum in New York

    While the museum leaves a bit to be desired their shop is pretty awesome. If you are looking for a sexy gift for a friend or lover, check out their gift shop. It's awesome!

    The key draw is the shop; the price of admission is a little steep for what you get. Speaking of steep, expect to climb stairs; this tiny place is not wheelchair accessible.

    Sorry, it’s not a giant porn celebration. It’s actually an informative look into the history, evolution, and cultural aspects of human sexuality. That said, climax at the gift store.
