Founded in 2002, the Sex Machines Museum in Prague is unique in that it is the only sex museum in the world devoted solely to sex devices. Covering three floors of a building not far from Prague’s Old Town Square, the museum shows off about 200 different machines, all designed to bring sexual pleasure and allow unusual positions during intercourse. Devices on display include body harnesses, copulation tables designed to facilitate weightless sex positions, vibrators and other gadgets meant for penile, anal, vaginal or clitoral stimulation and a throne chair with a hole in the seat to allow for oral sex. The oldest machines date all the way back to the 16th century and several are accompanied by dummies to demonstrate how exactly they work. The museum also features two pornographic films from 1925 that were said to be produced at the demand of King Alphonso XIII.
The museum was criticized by the government as inappropriate when it opened, but that tended to make it even more popular with tourists.
The Sex Machines Museum is located in the center of Prague near the Old Town Square. For those coming from outside the center, it is walking distance from the Mustek subway station.
