Miami 2011: World Erotic Art Museum

A trip to Miami Beach would not be complete without a little culture. There are several museums in Miami. I decided to visit the World Erotic Art Museum. In the Museum of Sex, I could take as many pictures as I wanted. At the WEAM they were prohibited, except for the floor to ceiling gold phallus. I think that one restriction is a reflection of their level of sophistication surrounding a topic that can go from educational and interesting to lewd and lascivious really quickly. I did take advantage of both photo-ops, however I just can’t seem to bring myself to post anything. Even the one of just my backpack resting on a shiny pair of larger than life size testicles is still enough to make you blush.

The Naomi Wilzing Collection includes:

· Items from various time periods. Including 300AD

· Female Cantaur sculptures ( these freaked me out a bit)

· Bibical Art

· Water Colors by Peter Fendi

· Shunga

· One piece described as” Woman sitting before 11 miniature, “spent” and escaping Japanese men.” From the 1900 (Think the infamous Lil Kim pose. )

· Some of Frida’s work

· 1930 Pinups

· Surrealism

· Of course a photos and quotes from Ms. Monroe herself,” I feel that beauty and femininity are ageless and can’t be contrived and glamour can’t be manufactured. Real glamour is based in femininity. Sexuality is attractive when it is natural and spontaneous. We all are born sexual creatures, thank God, but it is a pity so many people despise and crush this natural gift.”

· A sculpted ceramic phallus covered in Swarovski crystals; AND

· So much more.

The collage above is of the rug at the entrance, a layout of the museum, and of the infamous Kama Sutra bed. The bed was created by a German artist. He carved 138 positions from the Kama Sutra into each side. Including the 4 phallus bed post. That photos is courtesy of

" I consider erotica an authentic art form whose time has come, and a captivating means to enhance and enlighten one’s own perception of life. I am really pleased to share my erotica collection with you, which until now had remained private. The WEAM is the realization of my dream and publicly acknowledged the harmony of mankind in its most natural state. Enjoy.” ( Miss. Naomi)
