Tourists Love Brothel Art

Erotic Fresco in Pompeii Brothel (c.AD70)BBC's David Willey in the ancient Roman city of Pompeii, Italy, reports that recently restored brothel frescoes depicting erotic scenes are a big hit with tourists. "Hundreds" have been queuing to view the frescoes, which we know were painted before AD79 when Mount Vesuvius erupted and preserved them under tons of volcanic ash. How ironic that what stifled flesh kept its spirit alive.
