A museum about sex? Yessiree. Right where it belongs, in New York City. (Well, I suppose San Francisco might've been as appropriate a site.) As expected, the imminent opening of this institution is stirring all the right pots.

The last paragraph interested me:

Noting the peep shows still in Times Square, the Catholic League's [Louis] Giovino said: "It'll be interesting to find out if anyone wants to pay $17 when they can get the same thing for a quarter on Eighth Avenue."

Aside from completely missing the point--that the museum is not exactly targeting porn addicts, and not everyone going there will be a sexual deviant--I wonder how it is that Mr. Catholic League knows so much about Times Square to make such cost comparisons.

All I know is, it'll be on my tour stop next time I visit the City. Price is no object; besides, 17 is my lucky number.

By the way, be sure to check out the museum's website. It's got a very, very interesting layout and navigation design, never seen the likes of it.
