The “Disneyland for adults”, the first-ever Museum of Erotic Art - said to be the largest in Europe - has opened its doors in the Russian capital.

­Erotic themes are everywhere you look at the G Spot Museum. Beware: there is literally nowhere to hide from sex paraphernalia.

With over 3,000 kinky exhibits on display, it could become one of the few fun museums that the viewers, especially the younger ones, genuinely look forward to revisiting.

Following the steps of its twin brother “Musee Erotisme” in Paris, the Erotic Museum in Amsterdam or in Berlin, Russia’s “sex treasury” takes its visitors step by step through a whole palette of sexual art – artifacts, sculptures, pictures, toys, objects, lingerie, you name it.

The selection of erotic art from different cultures and centuries promises to be titillating and entertaining. Along with the permanent exhibits on display, there will be new exhibitions by modern artists who have something to say on matters sexual.

Apart from visual images, however the museum could also offer those particularly interested some practical “food for thought”. There is a chance to learn new things, based on the true story of historical and ethnic facts from around the world through the colorful display of erotic memorabilia.

The whole matter of sex is scrutinized to the point where you might feel like you need a breath of fresh air after you have covered just one third of the exhibits on display. Stay calm – the museum is open 24/7.

Should it prove a success among Muscovites, the museum could become a must-see on the list of the key tourist attractions, along with the Kremlin and Red Square.

Sex was long considered a taboo in Russia, and continued to be so up until the ground-breaking Perestroika era. The climax came during a historic TV bridge between American and Soviet women, back in 1986. When a Soviet woman was asked about how sex was reflected in the local Soviet media, she replied, “There is no sex in the USSR….”

Films made in Soviet times had been stripped of sexual scenes, thoroughly censored by the authorities. The change came only in the late 1980s when the sex-bomb of Soviet “Perestroika cinema”, Natalia Negoda, appeared naked in the scandalous film Little Vera, featuring explicit sex scenes unthinkable in Soviet times. After the film’s release, the actress became the first Russian woman to pose nude for Playboy magazine.
