Welcome To The Curios

The Curios have been gathered from near and far. They may be common-as-muck or one-of-a-kind. They may be worth a pretty penny or a dime-a-dozen. They may be horrifying, captivating, loathsome, or scintillating.

Whatever the cause of their creation, hopefully they bring enjoyment to someone out there.


Ringo's Erotic Adventures In Paris (Beware: Epic NSFW image post!)

Regular readers of the Curios will know I've recently returned from a European holiday. From the outset, I knew there would be a few destinations from my travels that I would want to share with the Curios readers. I'll post the rest in due time, but for now, please enjoy...

Ringo's Erotic Adventures in Paris!!!

(disclaimer: I should point out that any overtly erotic behaviour that I may or may not have explicitly participated in during my stay in Paris is not documented below. Sorry if you had your hopes up.)

When it came to finding erotica for the Curios, I knew Paris wouldn't let me down. Luckily, I was made aware of the Musée de l'érotisme, in the Pigalle area of Paris.

At only 8 Euro admission, that's 1 Euro for every floor jam-packed full of erotica throughout the ages, and it's definitely well worth the visit.

Yep, just down the street from the Moulin Rouge. In retrospect, I wish we'd taken a closer look at the Moulin Rouge, but this is as close as we got. I think I was just too excited about finding the Musée...

The Pigalle is also the main red light district of Paris. Every second store is a sex shop. This photo alone puts the 'red light district' of Adelaide, South Australia, to shame.

This grumpy naked chap welcomes you to the Musée.

A stag loop just around the first corner.

"Drink Coca-Cola"???

This cheeky devil was one of our favourites.

This is one of those 'move the loop around the wire without touching the sides' games, and it was about 5' long. When the wire was touched, it let out a series of very loud orgasmic moans... Much to the surprise of the little old man who set it off.

There were guestbooks on a few of the floors. In hindsight, maybe I should've added something of my own, but I don't think I could've possibly come up with anything as interesting as what was already in there.

There were a number of these dioramas throughout the Musée. I thought they were great, but I couldn't see if they were credited to any particular artist. If anyone can offer any ideas as to who created these scenes, I'd love to hear from you!

A tribute wall to the mysterious Monsieur X. Any vintage erotica photography afficionado worth their salt should know of the contributions Monsieur X has made.

In one room, there was a screen showing a selection of stag loops, short pornographic films that were often shown in the waiting rooms of brothels, with two chairs for visitors to sit a spell and watch. The entire time we were there, two very creepy old men had parked themselves in those chairs, never once looking away from the screen (you can see one of their ears in the bottom-middle of this shot). At one point, about a dozen people had gathered around the screen (when I took this shot) and those two old creeps didn't make any motion that they were leaving those chairs any time soon. That was the only hint of sleazy creepiness during our time in the Musée and the Pigalle in general. I definitely want to go back there one day.


I spotted this stuck on a wall in the Marais area on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Grotesque, graphic and explicit, I wonder how long it's been there, and how long it will stay. Personally, I think it's great.
