When we think about museums, the first things that possibly come to our mind are places that hold every country's cultural and historical identity. Not all people are interested in checking these places out. Some might think they're just plain dull and that they're not cool. Looking at old things that aren't fun anymore is no longer an exciting hobby in the 21st century.
However, there is something that people will always make an exception for. It is the topic of sex.
According to Wikipedia, "A sex museum is a museum that displays erotic art, historical sexual aids, and documents on the history of erotica. They were popular in Europe at the end of the 1960s and during the 1970s, the sexual revolution era. Since the 1990s, these museums are often called erotic museums or erotic art museums instead of sex museums. " Even though talking about sex in public is still a significant cultural taboo in many countries, sex is one of the most conversed topics over centuries. Nowadays, sex museums are available worldwide, from Europe to North America, from Asia to Oceania.
