NEW YORK (AFP) - Shouts, giggles and selfies. Mildly titillating and lots of fun, bouncing around on giant inflatable boobs is the hit attraction of a hot and steamy New York summer.

As temperatures rise and hemlines shorten, visitors flock to the Museum of Sex to jump up and down on an adult moonbounce (or bouncy castle) called "Jump for Joy" and nicknamed "House of Boobs."

It is the set piece in a flirty exhibition mounted by London-based conceptual art duo Bompas and Parr, and inspired by the naughtiness of an old-fashioned British or French funfair.

Shrieks of "Oh my God I'm not going on that!" or "I'm definitely going on that!" ring out of the low-lit corner where the boob castle stands erect, shoes quickly kicked off for a frolic.
