LAS VEGAS - Aug. 14, 2019 - PRLog -- The Erotic Heritage Museum opens their brand-new exhibit, Voluptuous Panic: The Erotic World of Weimar Berlin on August 17, 2019.
Based on Mel Gordon's book, Voluptuous Panic: The Erotic World of Weimar Berlin, the EHM's sprawling exhibit explores the care-free sexual times in Germany between the years 1918 to 1933, often referred to as the time of the Weimar Republic. From just after WWI to just before what would become one of the most repressive and destructive regimes ever seen on the planet, Weimer's Berlin was a time especially ripe with sexual researchers, hedonistic partiers, family-friendly nudist colonies…and the curious onlookers that always orbit such expression. This new exhibit, which contains scholarly notes, books, magazines, posters and photos Gordon collected joins both the permanent and changing array of significant historical accounts of positive sexuality and freedom the Erotic Heritage Museum consistently displays to the public.
In addition to the many artifacts gathered from the treasure trove of Mel Gordon's collection, the Voluptuous Panic: The Erotic World of Weimar Berlin exhibition also features newly discovered works by the father of Sexology, Magnus Hirschfeld.
About Mel Gordon:
Mel Gordon spent most of his adult life teaching drama scholars, emphasizing "bad acting." During his free time, he authored an extensive collection of books, all based on highly sexualized subjects, with an emphasis on the "strange and the bizarre." Mel was also an avid collector of a wide variety of ephemera reflecting his interest in sexual subcultures and the various pleasures people could get up to.
About Erotic Heritage Museum:
The Harry Mohney Erotic Museum, also known as the Erotic Heritage Museum (the EHM), began as a partnership between a preacher (the Rev. Ted McIlvenna) and a pornographer (Harry Mohney). The EHM houses more than 24,000 square feet of permanent and featured exhibits championing the wonders of erotic imagination, as depicted through artistic expressions of sex and love. The museum's ethos is that sexual pleasure and its depiction are natural aspects of the human experience and that such celebrations of individual human sexuality – that of pleasure – must be made available to all, regardless of gender, race, or belief.
