Preacher And Pornographer Get Together And…

shutterstock_332912810Las Vegas is known for the unusual, the weird, and the bizarre. There seems to be an unending supply of stories that defy logic and common sense. Here is one that I actually had not heard before until today.

You’ve heard of strange bedfellows? Well, how about  a preacher and a pornographer who get together. Why would two people with such unique, and diametrically opposed lifestyles go into business together?  And, what would they do?

Believe it or not, the preacher and pornographer created and established the Erotic Heritage Museum. I’ve told you before that there is culture in Vegas if you look for it. LOL. I guess one person’s art is another’s porn. Be advised that this museum is full of porn so it is definitely not a place to take the family. Nor is it a place that anyone who is easily offended by sexual depictions should visit.

According to Wikipedia:

The Erotic Heritage Museum (EHM) is a 24,000 square feet (2,200 m2) area with 17,000 square feet (1,600 m2) dedicated to displays on the history of erotica and is located at 3275 Industrial Road in Paradise, Nevada.[1][2] The grand patron of the Museum is Harry Mohney, founder of Déjà Vu. [3] The museum opened on August 2, 2008.[3] The museum ceased operations February 19, 2014. However, it reopened on June 7, 2014 as Harry Mohney’s Erotica Museum.[4]

Also, according to Wikipedia

The museum seeks to bridge the gap between that which is commercial and often misidentified as pornographic, with that which is aesthetic, often identified as folk, pop, and fine art. In keeping with the legacy of the American sexual revolution, the museum is dedicated to the belief that sexual pleasure and fun are natural aspects of the human experience, that such pleasure should be made available to all, and that our individual sexuality belongs to each of us.
