THE POWER OF EROTIC ART - The Erotic Heritage Museum

Las Vegas. Home to casinos, show girls,and lots of fun debauchery, but just off the strip is a wonderful place called the Erotic Heritage Museum. I went for a visit and was given a grand tour by the art director and resident curator Dorian Gomez.  Dorian showed me some very powerful exhibits like Nick Karras's Petals and the ancient de-flowering tools.  There is a lot we can learn from erotic art and I believe that it can empower us in many ways.  My question is "What makes it art versus something profane?" I of course have my own taste.  I invite you to share yours
