Exploratorium Features GV vibrators at “Sexplorations” Event!

Last night the Exploratorium in San Francisco held a fascinating event called “Sexplorations” as part of their monthly After Dark series.  Adults only lined up at the bar and enjoyed a variety of exhibits and presentations, the most popular of which was the “take apart sex toys” tables where people dissceted a variety of vibrators and put them back together again in creative ways.  People delighted at the familiar (Rabbit Habbit!) and the strange, all courtesy of Good Vibrations.  I pushed my way through the crowds to see a man in a lab coat holding up a clit vibe and explaining how the motor functions.  It was like a science fair gone awry.  Brilliant!

I moved on to the testicle and flower dissection, sea urchin egg fertilizations, and the “sense appeal” exhibit where you could identify which human scents you prefered on one side of a wall, then discover the corresponding photo on the other side.   Kind of like a phsyiological “dating game.”  After seeing the cutie that smelled so good, I’d say the nose knows!

As I strolled through the special and permanent exhibits to the sounds of “Do Me” by Bel Biv DeVoe and, I found myself deeply impressed by the fabulous San Francisco institution that is the Exploratorium.  The mixed, hipster-heavy crowd was just as delighted by the love lives of the Octupus as the magnets in motion.  This was a great opportunity to rediscover the Exploratorium, and take a closer look at the science of sex.   Good Vibrations was the perfect fit!
