Universe of Desire
Type. Swipe. Search. Upload. Download. Post. Stream. These are the new verbs of desire. Our most intimate thoughts, fantasies, and urges are now transmitted via electronic devices to rapt audiences all over the world. These transmissions-from sexts to personal webcam feeds-are anonymous yet personal, individual yet collective, everywhere and nowhere, and they are contributing to the largest sexual record to date. In short, desire has gone viral. But what does this mean? And what does it reveal about us? This exhibition explores these very questions through a lens of digital experiences by examining what we are searching for, how we do it, and what we leave behind on these electronic devices. In piecing this together, we begin to expose staggering truths about who we are and how we interact in this ever-changing world of modern sexuality. Universe of Desire is an exhibition about human desire as seen through the lens of digital behaviors.

The Sex Lives of Animals
This exhibition reveals sex is more than the drive to reproduce. The expanding knowledge of the natural world has revealed that animals participate in an astonishing array of sexual behaviors, where all conceivable sex acts and sexual partnerships exist. Animals engage in foreplay behaviors such as kissing, hugging, mutual and self-stimulation, oral sex and every kind of penetrative intercourse imaginable. Sex in the animal kingdom is just as complex and nuanced as it is for humans, and pleasure, it seems, is not restricted to the human realm.
Also currently on display at the Museum are works from Keith Haring's Bad Boys series, David Datuna's Flower of Life, and The Sex Lives of Robots installation by Mike Sullivan.
The mission of the Museum of Sex is to preserve and present the history, evolution and cultural significance of human sexuality.
