Musée d'érotisme - X-rated

Any Sex and the City fans? I remember watching the last episodes, when Carrie's in Paris and getting really annoyed when she's on the phone to Miranda and she says 'I've been to every museum, like, twice.' I remember an outcry of 'there's no WAY she's been to every museum twice!'. Paris is choc-full of museums. Everyone knows the big three, Louvre, Orsay, Pompidou. Less people know of the COPIOUS amounts of further museums, Rodin, musée de l'orangerie, and did you know there's a carnival museum or a museum dedicated to Edith Piaf?

Well, this weekend gone, I visited one of Paris' lesser known museums...la musée d'érotisme. Those of a delicate disposition should read no further...

To say that this museum is 'explicit' would be a bit of an understatement. Opposite this statue was a video on a loop depicting a...let's say 'insertion'.

But it's actually also really interesting...there's about 5 floors, and one will inform you on the history of prostitution and brothels in Paris. There were also some arty exhibits.

And at the very least, you'll definitely find plenty to have a laugh about...
