  1. Claude Nicolas Ledoux

    design for a House of Pleasure, 1773 

    In his unbuilt design for a House of Pleasure in 1773, Claude Nicolas Ledoux conceived a “lonely phallus”, lined with bedrooms along its length, culminating in a large ovoid salon at the head, while testicle-shaped galleries framed the entrance. A second design elaborated his allegorical ideas about sex, with private bedrooms arranged to “thrust out from the circular ring of the building, metaphorically representing penetration, the circular ring representing the vaginal passage and womb of the female,”
