musee-de-lerotisme By Edal Anton LefterovFrance’s only erotic museum is closing its doors on Sunday due to declining trade.The museum is located near the famous Moulin Rouge cabaret in Pigalle, but the area is no longer a draw for thrill seekers. Owners Jo Khalifa and Alain Plumey, a former porn star, who founded the museum nearly 18 years ago, said the double whammy of falling tourist numbers and rising rents caused by creeping gentrification had done for the Paris Erotic Museum.

Khalifa told AFP that the whole collection, including its love chairs and a notorious 18th-century French musical automaton of a couple in flagrante, will be sold off when the doors close.
