ENSLAVE , Sweden, April 14 (UPI) -- A Swedish man said his collection of more than 15,000 "erotic items" will go on display at his suburban Stockholm garden.

Jorma Toivonen, 52, said displaying the items at his garden May 2-3 is a temporary measure as he works to generate funding for a museum that would house what he calls "Scandinavia's largest collection of erotic items," The Local reported Tuesday.

"After some recent media interest there has been some contact from local municipalities. Some think it is a good idea but no one wants to stump up the cash. In the meantime my garden will have to do," Toivonen said. "I think that our society has maybe become more anti-sex. With a very lopsided view of sexuality. I hope my exhibition will show sex as something more interesting and fun."

Toivonen said the display at his Enslave home will include books, magazines, sculptures and sex toys.
