IF you are in Spain this summer be sure to check out the big Roman Sex exhibition at the Archaeology Museum of Catalonia in Empúries.
The show at the museum on the site of a Roman town, 140 km north of Barcelona, runs now through September 6.
On display are phallic objects from the time of the Roman Republic through the Hadrianic Age up until the 4th Century AD.
The Museu d'Empúries has borrowed a variety of objects demonstrating the use of erotic symbols in fertility rites and in sacred veneration of Greek and Roman deities.
Texts by Ovid, Seneca, Plautus and Suetonius explain how Romans view sexuality as an expression of sacred art and devotion.
