Experts say pornography memorabilia and erotic art are becoming legitimate collectibles in the United States.

"It's definitely a new market, but it's an evolving market," said Naomi Wilzig, founder and president of the World Erotic Art Museum in Miami.

"People are realizing how important erotic art is to both own and display. People used to cast it aside as sordid, but are now realizing it's important. There's no doubt it's escalating."

Ted McIlvenna, president of The Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco and curator of the Erotic Heritage Museum in Las Vegas, said that as pornography becomes more mainstream, people are becoming more comfortable with owning part of its history, CNBC reported Saturday.
McIlvenna said many collectors are seeking items from the past.

"A lot of the films people are rediscovering is happening because so much of the stuff they're making now is fast and furious," he said.

Most porn collectibles are worth between $200 and $500, but some items can sell for thousands.

Meanwhile, high-end adult toy makers are working with artists to make collectible products.

"I think we're at an interesting moment in the intersection of sex and art," said Ethan Imboden, founder, chairman and chief executive officer of adult toy producer JimmyJane's.
"I think there will be more of these intersections that will create these collectible pieces. Because of the taboo in the past, they're fairly rare, but as we move forward and [more artists begin] working in this space, I think you'll see more and more interest and an accompanying market."
