I got hurt in the Museum of Sex’s bouncy boob house

It was the breast of times. It was the worst of times.

A Brooklyn woman in a bouncy house of inflatable boobs at the Museum of Sex left battered and bloodied when she failed to get a soft landing, sources said.

“It was her birthday. She was there with about 10 friends,” a source familiar with the incident told The Post. “Two or three were with her in the bouncy house, they were taking pictures.

“She was bouncing between the two boobs and then she didn’t bounce up.”

Melanie Abramov, 35, an executive for Ralph Lauren, ventured into the bawdy Fifth Avenue museum on July 12, 2014 to see the art installation, “Funland: Pleasures & Perils of the Erotic Playground,” according to a Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit she filed against the Chelsea museum last week.

But the titillating experience turned traumatic after she entered “Jump for Joy,” a moonbounce made of giant plastic breasts.

“A friend was taking her picture and then she sees Melanie on the floor, teeth cracked, nose broken and blood gushing from her lip and nose,” the source said.

Abramov was rushed to the hospital and ultimately needed dental implants and her nose fixed, the source said.

The incident also left her “emotionally” distraught, according to court papers.

The suit, which seeks unspecified damages, alleges the museum was negligent. It allowed “a hard structure, perhaps steel, underneath” the bouncy house, the source said.

The source alleged the inflatable exhibit had been shut down twice for repair prior to Abramov’s fall.

The bouncy house was part of the “Funland” exhibit, which, according to the museum’s website, featured “five attractions designed to stimulate all five senses in both subtle and not-so-subtle ways. Physical, visual and olfactory experiences are utilized to give the audience a breathless rush of endorphins (similar to those released at the point of orgasm), challenge their strength and agility, and allow them to compete with and impress friends and lovers, as well as other patrons.”

The suit names the museum, and the London-based conceptual artist duo Bompas & Parr, which developed the installation, among others.

Abramov’s attorney, Zarina Burbacki declined comment.
