Love Comic Art & Sex? Live in New York? Here's something you might want to check out!
Hey folks, Harry here... Got sent over this press release - and thought - ya know, if I were an AICN reader in the Big Apple or headed thereabouts - I'd love to check out this exhibit at the MUSEUM OF SEX. Jeez that's an awesome sounding museum. Personally, I own several Bill Elder & Harvey Kurtzman risque originals, along with a few old old old pin & inks from the 20's and 30's. In particular, what I've always loved about vintage erotica is how classy it is. Today, our society makes sex this ugly thing, back in the old days - it was a joyful thing. It was mainly suggestion, but when it got filthy, it was hilariously filthy. If you're in New York during the run of this show - definitely check it out. You'll probably enjoy it quite a bit.

The Museum is very clean and pleasant. And the bouquet of glass dildos made a lovely backdrop for a picture of my girlfriend and me.

I stand corrected. The first photo in this article, by the way, is by Dan DeCarlo, artist that gave Archie & his gang (most importantly, Betty and Veronica) their modern appearance. I have two books of his pin-up art.

sucks (no pun intended). though I'm a native NYer, I've never gone because every single person I know that has been (and we're talking many) has returned disappointed and angry at how terrible it is. I wonder if this exhibit will be good enough to draw me there
