Share Shares 2K Sex has fascinated mankind from the very beginning. This custom was not merely for gaining political or economic leverage—it served as an early form of eugenics. It was practiced mostly by families of low rank who wanted more prestigious offspring to ennoble their line.
Children born out of this custom were considered the children of the husband, not the biological father. The husband would simply send her to the home of the chosen man, where she would stay until she got pregnant, whether it took days or months. However, in order for the husband to claim that the child born from the union was his, he must abstain from sex during the time his wife lived with the other man.
If the husband was able to contain himself during that time, the child was considered his in the eyes of the community. In a time when universities and schools were not yet thought of, tutoring by way of pederasty was the primary form of educating the youth and passing on important manly skills, like hunting and warfare.
For the ancient Cretans, however, pederasty was less academic and more along the lines of pseudo-rape, kidnapping, and a romantic camping getaway. Since the Greeks, especially the Cretans, were heavily into theater, the courtship phase of the whole affair was highly ritualized, and any deviation from it was strongly condemned.
It went like this. This formal proposal was necessary in order to give the boy an opportunity to hide if he did not want the man, or to prepare himself for what came next. After several days had elapsed, the erastes would then seek out the eromenos and kidnap him in the presence of his friends; they, in turn, would give chase and try to retrieve their friend.
The time away from civilization was spent in masculine pursuits like hunting, feasting, fishing, and sex. However, the whole romantic getaway was only allowed to last for a couple of months; anything more meant severe censure. A sacrifice to Zeus with the gifted ox was required, followed by a feast for family, friends, and all those who took part in the kidnapping ceremony. After this was done, the boy became a parastathentes and was given great honors by society. Taoist philosophy generally divides qi into two—yin and yang positive and negative energy —and it is in maintaining balance between the two forces that one can achieve perfect spiritual harmony and physical well-being.
When it comes to the human body, the chi takes the form of jing the essence that gives us life and Taoists believe that the loss of jing may cause illness and even death when it becomes totally expended. Of all the substances in the body, the one that is said to contain the most jing is the semen. This belief led the ancient practitioners of Taoism to believe that a man should not lose too much of his semen.
Due to this, ancient Chinese men were advised to not ejaculate during sex. However, there is a twist to this whole philosophy: One of the most effective ways to get more jing was to have more sex, especially with beautiful virgins.
Thus, ancient Chinese were compelled to have more sex, but to not ejaculate while they were doing it. MatthiasKabel The earliest account of fellatio dates back to the ancient Egyptian myth of the resurrection of Osiris. The story goes that Osiris was killed by his brother, Seth, who chopped him to pieces and scattered him all over the world. Not wanting to surrender her lover to the shadows of death, she fashioned a penis for him out of clay and blew life back into Osiris.
Perhaps it is due to this religious tradition that fellatio was not viewed as morally abhorrent to the ancient Egyptians. In fact, it was the Egyptians, along with the ancient Phoenicians, who were among the first to use red lipstick as a way to advertise their expertise in giving oral pleasure.
Unlike the Egyptians, however, the ancient Romans were strongly against fellatio, seeing it as a vice worse than anal sex. There was even a widespread belief among the Romans that fellators the ones giving had bad breath. This practice of shunning known fellators might have been aggravated by the fact that the Roman form of social greeting, or salute, was a kiss on the lips. But while giving received a bad rap, the Romans had no problem with the one receiving it.
In fact, Romans were known to have their slaves or prostitutes give them fellatio. In the myth, the universe started as a black primordial chaotic soup, but out of nothingness an egg was formed.
Out of this egg sprung the god Atum. Apparently, the first thing Atum did upon gaining sentience was masturbate, and from his semen came forth the race of gods who helped him create and rule over the universe.
Since the ancient Egyptians believed that the Pharaoh was the representative of their god Ra to the world, it was his job to help the gods maintain balance. During the feast of the god Nim, the Pharaoh, along with the public, would go down to the shores of the Nile to perform this very important and holy rite.
The Pharaoh would walk to the edge of the river bank, disrobe, and masturbate, with particular emphasis on making his semen fall in the river and not on land. Afterward, all the men who came along for the ceremony would do the same thing. By so doing, they ensured that the life-giving force of the river blessed their kingdom, securing a bountiful harvest for another year.
Sailko The oldest sex toy ever found was a stone dildo dated to around 26, years ago. But how prevalent was the use of sex toys in ancient civilizations? A fabulous account coming from Egypt tells us that Cleopatra was the first ever to use a vibrator. Not satisfied with the usual dildo, Cleopatra was said to have a vibrator made using a hollow gourd filled with live bees. The ancient Greeks and Romans also liked their dildos and even put some effort into improving them.
These leather-sheathed dildos known as olisbos were so popular that, in the play Lysistrata, the Greek women staged a sex strike to end the Peloponnesian War partly because they could no longer import good leather dildos. The ancient Greeks and Romans, however, did not share this concept. Back then, gay sex raised no eyebrows as long as it did not stray from their cultural views on masculinity. Due to this concept, a masculine man must always take the dominant role when it comes to sex.
It was all right to have gay relationships as long as there was no penetration involved or you were the one doing the penetrating. However, this liberality toward gay sex did not extend to the passive partner. To be the bottom guy was something abominable in the eyes of our ancient forebears, for it meant that he had surrendered control and was taking on a feminine role. Ancient Mayan mythology attributes the introduction of homosexuality to their god Chin, a dwarfish-looking nature spirit.
Chin was said to have sodomized a demon to demonstrate to the Mayans how gay sex is done and allowed the nobles to have sex with those from a lower rank. This union between the boys was considered akin to an actual marriage and was acknowledged under their tribal laws.
Young Mayan men even lived with each other until they married at around the age of This practice was so widespread that one missionary who went there wrote that sodomy was one of their greatest sins.
Although homosexual relationships between boys were accepted, even encouraged, the sons of nobles were barred from being sodomized. The penalty for that was equivalent to that of rape. Carlos Delgado The writer Herodotus had a lot to say about the Assyrians, and one thing he focused on was their prostitution rituals.
Every woman in the Assyrian empire, from the highest member of society down to the lowest, had to present herself at least once in her lifetime to the temple of Aphrodite for this sacred rite.
A woman taking part had to wear a crown of cords on her head to distinguish herself from other women who were not participating. She then sat on the temple steps—or on the sacred plot of Aphrodite—to await the attention of customers. The women had to accept the first man who came along. This ancient religious practice drew in a considerable crowd of interested men.
The Greek historian Herodotus noticed the drawback of this ritual, remarking that the tall and fair women got to go home first, but the ugly ones usually had to stay behind much longer, sometimes for years. A carving on a bone rod dated to be 25, years old shows a lioness licking the opening of either a huge penis or a vagina.
Another early depiction of bestiality was a picture of a man having sex with a donkey found on a cave painting in Italy from the seventh century B. Bestiality in ancient times was common enough that even the Bible had to mention it specifically, promising death for those who were caught. The ancient Romans brought bestiality to an art form. Roman women were known to have kept snakes for sexual purposes.
Bestiality was even a center of attraction at the Coliseum and the Circus Maximus, where men and women were brought in to be raped by animals. Unlike the ancient Romans, however, who practiced bestiality for pleasure or entertainment, the ancient Greeks were into bestiality for religious reasons, turning it into a central rite during the Bacchanalia and part of the ceremony at the Temple of Aphrodite Parne. But, according to ancient writers, the Egyptians might have taken the bestial cake.
It was said that there was nothing more common in ancient Egypt than young women having intercourse with bucks. According to Herodotus , goats were said to be part of the religious practice in the Temple at Mendes. Crocodiles were not even excused when it came to bestiality—ancient Egyptian crocodile hunters supposedly had sex with female crocodiles before killing them. Petros has nothing much to say about himself. Let us leave it at that.
