About the Erotic Heritage Museum

The Harry Mohney Erotic Museum, also known as the Erotic Heritage Museum, (the EHM) began as a partnership between Preacher (the Rev. Ted McIlvenna) and a Pornographer (Harry Mohney). Working to build a sex positive exhibition space, these two men from opposite sides of the cultural spectrum created the largest museum in the world for the preservation of erotic artifacts, fine art, film, education and cultural events: The Las Vegas Erotic Heritage Museum.

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 (i.e. pleasure) must be made available to all, regardless of gender, race or belief.

With so much of global erotic heritage undervalued, criticized or even lost over time the EHM is dedicated to the preservation of as much erotic heritage as is possible to display. Scouring the world for their exhibitions, The Harry Mohney Erotic Museum’s furthers its purpose by providing space for scientific and literary functions relating to sexual, emotional, mental and physical health.

As such, the EHM is as much an assemblage of some of the most important sexual artifacts, tableau and interactive exhibitions in the world as it is a one-of- a-kind lecture and classroom space.

The Harry Mohney Erotic Museum is owned and managed by the Harry Mohney Erotic Museum LCC, a Nevada corporation. Historical and contemporary erotic materials donated to the Harry Mohney Erotic Museum may be sold by the artist or collection holder, or made available on loan from individual artists for viewing in accordance with federal law.

  1. This is a pretty amazing place that covers the gamut of human sexual experience. It has something to will amaze and delight everyone. It has something to offend everyone. I suspect this is so much more than a run-of-the-mill porn shop (I haven’t actually been to a run-of-the-mill porn shop, so I this is a supposition). College level human sexuality classes should take a full day to tour it. Students should be required to write reports on it. Every thinking person should go.

    They need a bigger building with classier curb appeal. They need a coffee shop (they have a theater). They could become a gathering place for alternative intelligencia – artists, writers, budding professionals and politicians – like the old pre-WW II era European coffee shops.

  2. The Erotic Heritage Museum is very compelling. I enjoyed learning the history of sex through the various displays of art, film, theatre, lectures,sculptures, paintings, etc that they offered. The staff was very friendly and inviting.They welcomed any and all questions in a sex positive manner. I found the viewing room to be a great visual of erotic expression. The vast layout provides comfort while exploring various parts of the museum at ones own pace. The library is amazing. The gift shop offers great keepsakes or gifts for purchase. The experience exceeded my expectations and I do plan to return with friends.

  3. […] Erotic Heritage Museum – If you’re pro sex and want to learn more about the history of sex then check this place out. It is 2 floors and has a cafe with vintage books about sex. I learned a lot about sex during Nazi Germany which was interesting. […]
