The Antarang in Mumbai is a much different type of international sex museum. Run by the state government, this unique erotic hot spot aims to not only celebrate sex, but to educate visitors about the dangers of unprotected sex. Hoping to attract the country's hundreds of prostitutes, museum staff aims to promote HIV/AIDS awareness by showcasing graphic and eye-opening images, photographs and portraits of HIV/AIDS vicitms. The museum's motto is "No Condom, No Sex." Taking a much more subtle route than the vibrant sex museums of Amsterdam or Germany, Antarang showcases spiritual sexual objects, like the "lingam," a phallic-shaped symbol worshipped by some Hindus.
12. China Sex Museum
Located in the heart of the old Chinese fishing village of Tongli and surrounded by traditional Chinese wooden bridges and rock gardens, the China Sex Museum is a fun and kinky break for tourists. The Museum was built on the location of a former young girls' school in 1999 and now has more than 1,500 exhibits. The museum's artifacts span 9,000 years of Chinese sexual history and is divided into four areas- Prehistoric times, Women and Marriage, Sex in Everyday Life and Unconventional Behavior.
