LAS VEGAS — Novelty manufacturer Topco Sales is being featured with an extensive display at the new Erotic Heritage Museum in Las Vegas.

The display takes museum visitors on a journey through the 35-year history of the company, beginning with the two books on lovemaking written by Topco Sales’ founder, Martin Tucker, and ending with the recent merger that created Topco Sales China.

The Erotic Heritage Museum is collaboration between Harry Mohney and Ted McIlvenna and is owned and managed by the Exodus Trust, a non-profit California entity. The museum boasts more than 24,000 square feet of permanent and featured exhibit space.

“Harry Mohney called me several months ago and told me all about his plans for this amazing museum and I told him he could count on Topco Sales to help,” said Scott Tucker, president and CEO of Topco Sales. “The Las Vegas location is perfect for the museum and I am sure it will draw huge crowds from around the world. We are honored to be a part of it and the timing couldn't be better as we celebrate our 35-year anniversary.”

According to Erotic Heritage Museum curator Dr. Laura Henkel, Topco's products are important because they demonstrate how times have changed.

“I don’t think the adult industry even realizes what they have,” Henkel said. “They have a treasure trove of archives, and there are so many little things that are relevant markers in terms of how they’ve impacted people’s lives.”

The display features some of the new technologies developed by Topco Sales over the years, including some of the first rabbit-style toys, integrated circuit (I.C.) operated vibrators, mega motors with 12,000 RPMs and the revolutionary CyberSkin material.

Additionally, the exhibit illustrates how Topco Sales has expanded over the years and how it impacted the landscape of the adult novelty industry. Some of the products featured are the Love Swing, the Virtual Girl and various CyberSkin replica pieces. A flat screen monitor on the wall of the Topco Sales exhibit also plays a video showing a behind-the-scenes look at the company's factory and celebrity molding facilities.

The Erotic Heritage Museum held its grand opening gala on Aug. 2. It opened with a theme of “Erotic Art Now,” and is hoping to have new exhibits every six months.
