Paris has a kinky side. Everyone has heard of the Moulin Rouge or the Pigalle district. But there is much more than that to it. La Musardine is the only erotic bookshop in Paris. Nested in the 11th neighborhood, it is quite off the beaten track, but close to the Pere Lachaise graveyard, which many tourists visit. If you like eroticism and have come to Paris looking for something different or have a kinky side, you should not miss that place.
The bookshop itself is not very big, but it displays an excellent sample of literature of all levels of quality and cartoons of high quality, all devoted to eroticism and sex in quite explicit terms. Manga, new editions of classic comics such as Manara’s Click! series, educational books like the recent success “the wonder down under” by Nina Brochmann and Ellen Stokken Dahl or classics like Pauline Reage’s “Story of O” are just some examples of what can be found in this heaven for the interested ones, this surprising place for the non-initiated.
The founder and owner of that bookshop and publishing house has retired but the employees bought it and set up a cooperative which is a rare case in the edition business nowadays.
The staff is super helpful and they have a fidelity card.
