Danish sex museum loses wood

Financial crisis proves hard on Copenhagen

Security for virtualized datacentres

The latest victim of the global financial apocalypse is, sadly for aficionados of rumpy-pumpy-related artefacts, Copenhagen's Museum Erotica which will close within a week if it doesn't find enough cash to maintain wood.

According to a report in the Copenhagen Post, the city's council has withdrawn funding for the 15-year-old "unique venue", and it's three million kroner (£360,000 or 9,027,313,331 Vietnamese dongs) short of completing a renovation project.

Hanne Stensgaard, the museum’s chief exec, lamented to the paper that if someone doesn't come up with a money shot pronto, it will have to offload its 1,500 sex-related exhibits.

He said: “We’ve been hopeful [of securing investors] for a long time and miracles can happen, but if we don’t get the funding within a week, we will have to close. We think it’s very important that people know about sexual and erotic history as it defines many gender roles today."

That sex is the first thing off the menu when times are hard will come is, of course, well known to Hustler main man Larry Flynt, who recently asked Congress for $5bn to bail out the ailing US smutography industry.

Indeed, recent tabloid reports have suggested that economic hardship really does lead to a global downturn between the sheets, as interest rates in making the beast with two backs fall in direct relation to the current state of the pound against the dollar. ®
