Here's One Way To Get People To See Art -- Promise A Giant Orgy (NSFW)

Warning: If the terms "orgy" and "NSFW" didn't tip you off already, this post contains some rather explicit nudity. Do not press play on the following video unless you are prepared for some debauchery.

Sometimes, it's difficult to get people to look at art. So difficult, in fact, that museums have to resort to tactics used in the advertising world. As the age-old addage states, "Sex sells." So can we really blame the Musée d’Orsay for tempting visitors with a 52-second video of a full on orgy?

Yes, yes we can.

The teaser is meant to lure people to the new exhibition, "Sade. Attacking the Sun," an homage to the "veritable legend" Marquis de Sade. And it does so with flesh and lots of it. The Musée d’Orsay loves it some nudity.
