Three holidaymakers have been arrested for having sex in what was once a Pompeii brothel.

The tourists, a Frenchman and two Italian women, into the Suburban Baths to fulfil their fantasies inside a former brothel that is still decorated with centuries-old wall paintings depicting explicit sex scenes according to the Daily Mail.

According to the report researchers believe the erotic paintings depicting group sex and other naughty acts may have indicated the services offered by prostitutes.

The three had broken into the site by climbing over a fence, but their activities were cut short by local police.

Visit Pompeii tour guide Giuseppe Galano told The Local: ‘It’s ridiculous and vulgar, but young people are fascinated by this and sometimes try to play this game."

According to the report, the three haven't given up though - they promise that they will be back to complete their tryst.
