Beware: This posting holds some light erotic pictures. If you don’t want to see these, then please skip this posting. If you decide to read it, then please don’t come complaining. I have warned you.
Edit: Someone suggested that I should make this posting private. I disagree with that. The pictures shown are “light erotic” at most in my opinion. If it would be about heavy pornographic material I would agree, but this is not the case.
For today Marion and I had decided to spend some nice time in Amsterdam. So while we were walking through the city we ended up on street called “Het Damrak”. I went there with a reason. On “Het Damrak” is a establishment of Kentucky Fried Chicken… and that happens to be my all time favourite fastfood restaurant.
On “Het Damrak” we walked by the Sex-museum that is located there. And as I pointed to it, I heard to my surprise that Marion never has been there. So I suggested to have a look at it. After some moments of pondering she agreed (after I convinced her it is a “sex-museum” and not a “porno-museum”).
Everybody who knows me a bit, knows that I am kinda free minded concerning sex. As long there all involved are 100% in agreement and there will be no (permanent) damage or hurt caused, a lot should be possible. Concerning this I am thinking not in the way the Catholic Church, as example, expects from us, far from that even (only my opinions on condoms and masturbation makes that already very clear).
Knowing Marion, she holds generally spoken the same views as me on this matter.
What I really like is the many old objects the museum has. It shows that sex was already throughout ages that what kept people busy. And that is not strange of course. Apart from that sex is needed for reproduction, it is something wonderful that can give great pleasure, specially when partners are dared to each other and feel completely open to each other.
As said, I really like the historical things they display in the museum. Even in these modern times sexuality, and everything belonging to it, is something for many less or more a taboo. Something you do not talked about freely. And still there was always a desire to express ones interest in sexuality. The museum displays many old items that have hidden sexual content or have sexual content in a way that you don’t see it right away.
The museum also holds a rather large collection of photographs with the subject sex. It is kinda nice to see how over the years this kind of photography changes. But the collection shows clearly that almost from the moment photography was discovered there were sexual photographs made. Really nothing new under the sun.
Aside from photographs the museum also has a rather big collection of paintings and sculptures. Some I like, some I don’t. Some are just “too much”, other I just don’t like the way they were made. But some I could even consider as art displayed in a home (bedroom for example). Some examples of the paintings and sculptures the museum displays…
Also there are some old “picture machines” on display. Of course are the pictures these machines display naughty. In a way the predecessor of the sex movie as we know it today. And how far did we come :)
Anyway, I assume that these machines made a nice amount of money…
Very nice are of course also the small scenes the museum has as of the Red Light District.
Our visit to the sex-museum was one of laughter, “Oh’s” and having fun.
Afterwards we went to the Kentucky Fried Chicken to have our well earned dinner. And as I said, KFC is one of my favourites. Soon we will return to Amsterdam to do the shopping and wandering around that we planned to do. Now we wanted to go home…
