Orthodox Activists Reached the G-Spot Museum in Moscow

Orthodox Activists Reached the G-Spot Museum in Moscow
Reaching for the G(Spot)

The Museum of Erotica, unambiguously called "G-Spot", officially opened its doors to the public in June 2011. It took only a year, although packed with all sorts of social activity, for it to endure its first attack from the defenders of Russian morals. As one would probably imagine, these were the Orthodox believers.

      A group of young people who reportedly attempted to interrupt the Pussy Riot dedicated performance last week, went into a museum (that works 24/7) at 10pm on Monday. Described by some as the earlier mentioned Orthodox volunteers, they brought into the museum some bricks and could evidently damage the exhibits. Eventually they were driven out, and the museum's owner called on for the Russian Orthodox Church, the President and the police to investigate the incident.

       More than 3000 exhibits are displayed on the area of 800 sq. m., among those - ancient engravings, sculptures, books and sex toys, and modern sex industry items, including world’s most expensive sex dolls "Real Dolls", as well as erotic installations, sculptures and paintings by modern artists. The museum is also equipped with a cinema hall where non-stop will be shown a film «Sex in the USSR», cafe of erotic subjects and shop of the goods for adults. 

      Possibly the same people were earlier reported to have attacked a man in a T-Shirt with a print mocking an icon. Some say these are the paid extremists, specially tasked with bringing havoc to the society.
