Museum of eroticism


Museum of Eroticism (French: Musée de l'érotisme) is a sex museum in Paris devoted to the erotic art collections of antique dealer Alain Plumey and French teacher Jo Khalifa. Founded in 1997, the museum is situated in the Pigalle district of Paris, at 72 Boulevard de Clichy. The collection ranges from the ancient religious art of India, Japan and Africa right up to contemporary art with an erotic focus. There are five floors, including a basement exhibition. One floor is devoted to maisons closes, the legal brothels of the 19th and early 20th century. The film Polisson et galipettes is shown; it is a collection of pornographic shorts formerly exhibited in the maisons closes. The upper two floors have revolving exhibitions, mainly of contemporary artists. It is visited by the main character in the novel Merde Actually, the sequel to A Year in the Merde.
