Brazilians get worked up over museum proposal 

Igor de Vetyemy, a young Brazilian architect has created a storm in Rio de Janerio with his plans for an interactive sex museum just off Copacabana Beach. The building, in the form of a giant uterus which will house strip joints, sex capsules and a swinger’s club is in direct conflict with Rio’s Governor Rosinha Matheus who is trying to sever the city’s ties with sex tourism. Vetyemy, an Oxford University architecture graduate, defended his proposal, "There is this huge hypocrisy surrounding sex here. People are terrified of talking about the idea, and only really discuss the negative things related to sex, like sexual tourism or child prostitution. I wanted to deal with it in a natural, official way,"
