Sex in the Museum

Recently an interesting article went viral about sex in museums. Films and books tell about lovers meeting in the marbled halls of museums and occasionally there a passionate sighing to be heard in the dark rooms for video art or behind the long silenced Greek gods. Nowadays museums are to busy for such little adventures, tickets must be sold and the visitor is ploughing his way through the crowds. Sex in museums is over. Or isn't it? Droog Studio of Droog Design has designed an interactive installation for the Museum of Sex (MoSex) in New York about sex in the great outdoors: 'Splendor in the Grass'. Outdoor sex in a museum. It sounds contradictory, but with five tents the illusion of the great outdoors is summoned. Inside said tents the visitor will be presented with an installation that stimulates all the senses and sheds new light on all the different aspects of sex and sexual arousal. Pheromone-scented air, different bodily positions and mirrors upon mirrors to stimulate our vanity and self lust. Sex in the museum may remain to be a reverie, but the installations of Droog at the MoSex may perhaps cater for new possibilities. We see strong parallels with the trend on tangibility, back to feeling, the body and sexuality.
