So I put this in a different post from the main Pompeii post because it’s mainly focussing on prostitutes. This is the red light district.
This is the house of a self employed prostitute complete with decorative phallus over the doorway.
This is her comfy looking bed (I assume her?).
Marginally more spacious than the brothel rooms
This was a sign post in the street to the brothel, I think it conveys the message in a fairly obvious way.
Here’s some of the brothel menu, the prostitute looks a bit manly I think, and it’s a drawing so you’d think they’d use artistic licence and pretty her up a bit wouldn’t you?
Interesting to know they had boob tubes back then though
