Musée de l'érotisme de Paris

The Musée de l'érotisme or the Museum of Eroticism is a museum in Paris founded by Alain Plumey and Jo Khalifa in 1997.

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 twentieth 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.
