  • Not really erotic, but more like exploring different facets of everything related to sexuality
  • This is a remarkable museum. Erotic? Certainly. Pornographic? Possibly in some areas, but presented tastefully. Spread over 7 floors, take the lift to the top and work your way down. Some of the sculpture work is exquisite and true works of art. A good 2 hours (or more) browsing on a wet day.
  • Fairly interesting, but I'm not sure how many of the items on display are actually authentic - their descriptions are left general and vague for a purpose I think.
  • not really a museum, more voyeur than anything else. it's interesting though. there isn't much explanation to the artifacts and paintings, other than that they visibly look Asian or African or modern... Just a bunch of stuff with labels, but still interesting to see as a whole. i didn't realize this when i was there, but this museum is actually in a sex shop area, close to the 'famous' Moulin Rouge. when i saw it i thought 'this must be the cheap copy of the moulin rouge', as it was just a small, red windmill. it's actually the real thing.
  • There are really a lot of things! Very cool :)
