Museu de l’Eròtica

La Rambla & Barri Gòtic

Observe what naughtiness people have been getting up to since ancient times in this museum, with historical relics such as Indian bas-reliefs showing various aspects of tantric love, 18th-century wood carvings depicting Kama Sutra positions, Japanese porcelain porn and African fornication carvings. Despite the premise, overall it's a rather buttoned-up affair, and probably not worth the steep admission price.
