Pompidou we walked to Montmartre to check out the Musee D'Erotisme. It was located in the red light district and had a kind of cheesy vibe. The collection included a number of ancient fertility artifacts and sexual art from many different cultures, and those were interesting. Then there were several floors of contemporary art, including an exhibition of black and white photography depicting various unusual nudes, such as hermaphrodites and overweight women. It was okay, but nothing to write home about. Another exhibition was very detailed and well executed pencil drawings of a huge ass dominatrix with a scrawny guy who always had his face up her ass or twat. They were interesting, but again, nothing special. Rather mediocre. NYC has a Museum of Sex which I'm going to check out this summer to compare.
