Sex Exhibition On Display At London Museum
Visitors at the Natural History Museum in London can explore the sexual side of the animal kingdom just in time for Valentine's Day. The "Sexual Nature" exhibit examines the sexual behavior of multiple species and even offers insight on human sexuality.
"Sexual Nature" focuses on the connection between sex and evolution. Animals have undergone bizarre adaptations in the name of procreation. Snails have evolved to use love darts in courtship rituals, and chimpanzees are known for their oversized testes and promiscuity.
The exhibit also looks at sexual selection across the animal kingdom and the male-female power struggles. One of the main features is Guy the Gorilla, a stuffed massive primate. When alive at the London Zoo, Guy ruled a harem of female gorillas, but also had a nice side.
The human part of the exhibit includes a magnetic wall with movable romantic words where visitors can link together pick-up lines. Curators of the museum stress that humans are not unlike these animals and that we are all affected by the same evolutionary principles.
Top Five Groups of Sex Toys
Buffalo has a wide variety of intimate boutiques located throughout the city. Video Liquidators, Xentuals, Buffalo Adult Toys, and Pandora's Boxxx are just a few.
Upon interviewing an employee from Pandora's Boxxx, a local intimate boutique located on 1467 Seneca St., the top five sex toys to sell in the past year include clitoral stimulators, rabbit and Ivibe vibrators, jack rabbits, anal toys, and stimulating arousal gels.
Clitoral stimulators are the highest grossing toy on the market because of their small size and easily usable features. The rabbit vibrators are smaller "pocket rockets" while the IVibe rabbit vibrator is designed after the iMac computer and comes in a wide variety of colors. The employee also noted the rise of their anal section at Pandora's Boxxx.
"The anal section is crazy. In the last two years, sales in the anal section went up," said Nicole, an employee at the intimate boutique.
