The Lupanare in Pompeii, Italy

The Lupanare, or Brothel, in Pompeii includes several small rooms with stone beds where the girls entertained their clients.  Over the doors are painted erotic scenes on the frieze.  In the middle of the north wall is a painting of Priapus, a god of fertility and protector of fruit trees and livestock, standing in front of a fig tree.
