Hey NY Society of Mixology,
I am suggesting an uber interesting meetup at the OralFix Aphrodisiac Bar. I am aiming for May of June. I need to get a headcount on how many people are interested in attending. If it is a large group, I will make reservations.
RSVP for headcount by THURSDAY, APRIL 18TH, 2013
Take a little mango flavoring for virility, mix in a dash of coffee for stamina, and top it off with basil dust for lust. It's aphrodisiacs all the way at the new cafe at the Museum of Sex—you weren't expecting soggy tuna wraps, were you?
There are 3,000 years of folklore represented on the menu of Oralfix, a basement eatery that sits directly below where the museum's gift shop sells tuning-fork dildos and prostate massagers. Equal parts apothecary and soda shop, the cafe boasts a tiled counter lined with colorful bottles, filled with flavors to help you get it on. Salts and other solids are stored in petri dishes (remember those from bio class?).
"It's about where science and folklore cross over," says Museum of Sex creative director Mark Snyder, who likens the space to an exhibition. The experience is as educational as the "Sex Lives of Animals" show upstairs, thanks to decorative cards that explain that the cardamom you're tasting was prescribed in a 15th-century Arabic sex manual.
