HERE ARE 5 SEX PRACTICES THAT GO ALL HE WAY BACK TO ANCIENT EGYPT
Ancient Egypt was a civilization in the northeastern part of the African continent. This civilization was centered along the lower reaches of the Nile river. In the late Paleolithic period, North Africa’s climate became increasingly hot and dry. As a result, many residents in the region ended up living near the river to stay alive. But this ancient culture practiced many things we’d find normal today. This includes sex practice! But not all of them would still be considered normal. There are a couple surprises. But the history is clear! Here are 5 sex practices from Ancient Egypt for your consideration:
Just like today, contraception was a very valuable and important part of sex life in Ancient Egypt. The best sex usually happens for those in a free society. Ancient Egypt wasn’t necessarily free, but they were advanced. Advanced enough to make condoms! But condoms way back in ancient Egypt were made from sheep intestines.
DIAPHRAGM MADE FROM CROCODILE POO
Yes, that is not a typo or a joke. Women in ancient Egypt used diaphragms, which was a physical blockade inside a woman’s vagina to prevent the passage of sperm which prevents pregnancy. But back then women didn’t have things like plastic that could be custom fit. they had to use pliable and stable mediums to make their own, like with crocodile poo.
PROSTITUTION WAS SACRED
Ancient Babylon thought that prostitution was a blessed profession that was blessed by the divine and an honorable career. We don’t have that so much these days, but it was also true in ancient Egypt. Sex workers had a decent social status in ancient Egypt, while neighboring countries and cultures deemed it dishonorable and illegal.
THE PRACTICE OF BESTIALITY
It is no secret that there were many people in Ancient Egypt who had sex with animals – including with crocodiles. Yup, you read that right too. They would flip them over on their backs (to prevent attack) and then have sex with them. It was considered good luck and good for male virility. Crazy! But it was also illegal back then.
MASTURBATION ALSO SACRED
Masturbation was considered to be a sacred act in Pharonic Egypt. There was no shame in it! Ancient Egyptians were pretty liberal when it came to sex. Shame wasn’t a big part of their sexual identity. That’s pretty clear in all 5 sex practices talked about here.
