“Club kids decked to the nines in latex, strap-on dildos, wigs, headdresses, muscle suits and makeup were in every room of the Museum of Sex at Sex Fifth Avenue, a pop-up party, this spring.  With their friends, fellow hosts or slaves, the muses of nightlife posed for pictures and socialized as the plainer patrons filled the dance floor.  By 2 am the museum was packed, but many of the elaborately dressed characters were still just coming in to the brightly lit gift shop entrance.  Downstairs, was the grungier, dungeon dance floor with the DJ spinning some great dancey dark-wave.  The three rooms upstairs had the cleaner edge of a museum, with the back two holding the bar and lounge. When I first arrived before the party set up, a handful of banker types were finishing their cocktails and filtering out of the lounge.  It was great to see these rooms taken over and transformed by NYC’s creative underbelly.”- Alannah Farrell

In the words of  host and co-creator Kayvon Zand:

“Sex Fifth Avenue is a MuSexual Affair, that will take place as a pop-up party, taking root in venues, spaces or locations that parties should never take place!  I see so many parties today in the same clubs by the same people on different nights.  Time to change the game.”
