The Pompeii Lupanara (brothel) remains as popular as ever. This is one place in Pompeii where there is a one-way system in force.
Erotic art played an important role in old Pompeii with some of the best works on display in the National Archaeological Museum in Naples’ Secret Room. At the excavations, many houses have genitalia on display on the facade to ward off the evil eye, while erotic paintings and statues welcomed visitors. The erotic paintings on the wall of the brothel were possible a sort of advertisement of options available.
