Have some spare time to kill during your stay at SLS South Beach? An interest in fine erotica?

Enter the World Erotic Art Museum. Known for their tasteful displays of sex throughout the decade, some of the pieces will have you cocking your eyebrow or ducking out early to do the dirty with your date. The smooth R&B on the museum speakers only further sets the mood for a tantalizing evening.

Owned and curated by Naomi Wilzig, the museum is guaranteed to bring out kinks you never even knew you had. Showcasing ancient Japanese art alongside the chair from A Clockwork Orange, the World Erotic Art Museum in South Beach covers all the bases – sensually erotic to delightfully raunchy. With an impressive list of artists on view – everyone from Rembrandt, Picasso and Dali to Manna and Resenberg, this museum stimulates the eye as well as the mind.

Check out their calendar to see what special exhibitions are going on – “Golden Gals Gone Wild” (yes, that would be erotic art inspired by the classic “Golden Girls”) and “Fun Foods” have been past gallery shows. Open until 10pm weekdays and 12am on the weekends, the museum is the perfect pregame to a late night drink… or rendezvous.
