We are at odds in The Frisky’s office about the bouncy boob castle, which will appear at The Museum of Sex in New York City (incidentally, down the street from us) beginning June 26th. The Freudian wonderland is a creation of Bompas & Parr, London-based conceptual artists. Everyone but me wants to hop around on those tatas with wild abandon. What can I say? Nipples read as “sensitive” to me — I’d rather hop all over an inflatable butt bouncy castle. Next exhibit? [Paper Mag]
The word â€œLapjuicerâ€ is not in most peopleâ€™s vocabularies, but it should be. Essentially, a Lapjuicer is a stool on which someone can perform a lap dance on piece fruit (an orange or lemon would work nicely) and juice it simultaneously. Quite genius, really. The Lapjuicer, designed by 3eyes, is one of many intriguing products on display in Sex in Design/Design in Sex, which opens today at New Yorkâ€™s Museum of Sex. The exhibit features sex toys through history (some made with horse hair), merkins (originally worn by sex workers following outbreaks of lice or syphilis), and beautifully designed everyday products by Karim Rashid and other designers that conjure up sexual images. Consider this a chance to round out your education.
Sex in Design/Design in Sex continues through April 2008. [Museum of Sex]
