Erotic art in Pompeii and Herculaneum - Wikipedia
By Alice Vincent , Entertainment writer, online. An erotic statue has caused the British Museum to install a "parental guidance" warning in their new exhibition, Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum. The sculpture is of the mythical half-goat, half-man Pan having sex with a nanny goat. The Times reports that the museum is determined to display the object in plain sight, rather than hidden behind a curtain or in a "museum secretum" — a restricted area for those aged over 14 in the Naples Museum. Paul Roberts, senior curator, said the statue may be unconventional today, but would not have raised eyebrows in Roman Pompeii: "The Romans would see the god goat having sex with a goat , so it wouldn't have troubled them at all. They also have a sense of humour, because to a Roman that would have been humorous, not offensive. He added that phallic symbols were commonplace in Roman homes.

The Roman pantheon of gods is considered to be the largest of all. The Romans had gods for every imaginable thing. They had Mars, the god of war, Neptune, the god of the sea, Bacchus, the god of wine, and many more. Like all cultures, they also had a rich and vibrant mythological background. While some of their gods are adaptations of the Greek gods, some are original too such as the two-faced god of doorways and gates, Janus.
