Erotic Museum in Amsterdam

Date: 7. jul 2018.

Freud once said that the human behavior is the result of impulses. Then he postulated the two main impulses of the human behavior, the impulse to sustain life and the sex drive. As far as the first impulse is concerned there are many places in Amsterdam with a good food and lodging for the night to satisfy it (if you don’t find yourself in some bigger trouble of course), and when your second basic impulse hits the best place to go is the Red Light District, where you can get straight to “business” or first tickle your imagination starting with the Erotic Museum on your Amsterdam tour.

It is different from the Venustempel Sexmuseum that is located in the hectic city center and it benefits from its location, but we won’t speak about it here in details because it is a subject of another story. We just wanted to point out that there are two museums in Amsterdam that can satisfy our “second main impulse”. Let’s go back to the Erotic museum which is placed in a more appropriate location, right in the center of the Red light district in Amsterdam. The name of the Museum museums name is somewhat inaccurate, or as we could say, not so erotic in the sense of subtle arousal. The displays are pretty shocking and very authentic and some people do get their kicks in this place, but other people say that it is unsexy as can be. It also does not fall under the traditional category of “Museum”. It is located in the old warehouse, actually the seventeenth-century old canal house that has always lit neon above the entry that says “Erotic Museum”. If you look carefully, you will see the notice on the façade on the old stone plate that says “God is mijn Burgh” (God is my castle).

The exhibition will allow you to get a sense of this very unusual area of the city and inside you are free to take as many pictures as you like, but we have to warn you against photographing in the streets of Red Light District, outside the Museum.

The Erotic Museum exudes the atmosphere of an old “dirty” basement. The collections that are displayed are eclectic, shocking and humorous. If you have a cooky sense of humor you will be sure to share a few laughs with your buds.

Especially interesting is the room that is filled with huge mushrooms where you can enjoy the most fucked up movie you will ever watch. All you need to do is take a seat on one of the mushrooms and maybe pop a ‘shroom you bought earlier, sit back and watch a cartoon involving bestiality with cutesie characters and a psychedelic journey may begin!

Also interesting is the room full of black and white antiquated porn where you can check out the kink of the old days.

Except for the dicks and dildo galore and many depicted perversion scenes, there is a shop with erotica souvenirs and the exhibit the three floors up which is more about the Red Light District in Amsterdam, than about eroticism. It is showing the wax figure of the working girl inside and the model of the cashier of the famous Casa Rosso Live Show Theater. There are also featured the interesting series of John Lennon’s lithographs and a compact collection of erotic art.
