World’s Sexiest Travel Destinations: Paris
The suggestion seems trite, but the City of Love has much to offer for couples looking to spice up their relationship. Spend a couple of hours at the Musée de l’érotisme, open daily until 2 am, to view its permanent exhibitions of contemporary and historical erotic art as well as a collection of rare documents, photos and drawings related to the city’s brothels from the late 19th century through 1946, when they were closed. Follow (or precede) your visit with a shopping trip at one of the city’s many lingerie stores, then stay the night in the Moulin Rouge room at the Hôtel Secret de Paris to reenact your favourite scenarios. And pack a padlock and a Sharpie to declare your undying love at one of two Paris bridges – Pont des arts or Pont de l’archevêché – by writing your names on the lock, attaching it to the bridge and throwing away the key.
