Remember that whole Anthony Weiner sexting scandal thing? What, you say, the money shots and sexy messages that were once burned in your brain have pretty much been erased now that he’s running for mayor? Well the New York Museum of Sex will gladly refresh your memory.

The “Universe of Desire” exhibit currently on view at MoSex features a Facebook exchange between Weiner and Las Vegas blackjack dealer Lisa Weiss in which the Jewish former congressman brags about his sexual prowess, The Huffington Post reports. The museum’s curator, Sarah Forbes, described Weiner’s words as “artifacts of sexuality.”

The exhibit, an exploration of how “desire has gone viral,” runs through September and hopefully does not include any of those photos we’ve worked so hard to forget.
