SEX IN ANCIENT EGYPT

20120216-Egypt-sex.jpg


Egyptians believed that radishes were aphrodisiacs. Lettuce has been described a the Viagra of the Egyptian era. The sexual genitalia of animals was believed to promote youth and sexual vigor. Body paste and facial creams were made of calf penises and vulvas. Men and women shown embracing on tomb murals and the like were regarded as married or having sexual relations and there was an understanding their erotic life would continue in the afterlife.

The ancient Egyptians performed circumcisions and had an initial ritual after it was done and had erotic dancing. There are some references to fetishism and masochism in Egyptian writings. Nose kissing appears to have been popular. In some reliefs Ramses II is pictured with a big dick and strong erection.

To keep from having babies, Egyptian women were advised to inset a mixture of honey and crocodile dung in their vagina. The honey may have acted as a temporary cervical cap but the most effective agent was acid in the dung that acted as the world's first spermicide. Methods of birth control mentioned in the Petri Papyrus (1850 B.C.) and Eber Papyrus (1550 B.C.) included coitus interruptus and coitus obstructus (ejaculating into a bladder inserted in a depression at the base of urethra).

Deborah Sweeney of Tel Aviv University wrote: “Egyptian gender categories seem rigid....the genitals of elite males are always hidden, although the pubic triangle of elite women is often outlined under their clothing. Moers stresses the social power of the representations of the normative, elegant, well-ordered body in visual and written media: feelings of shame are attributed to people when they fail to conform to this image, such as the young woman in the love poems who worries that “people” will describe her as “one fallen through love” because, distracted by daydreams of her beloved, her heart beats violently and she is neglecting her appearance. Moers also makes the interesting argument that this socially constructed normative body is male: women would always be considered slightly at a disadvantage.” [Source: Deborah Sweeney, Tel Aviv University, UCLA Encyclopedia of Egyptology 2011, escholarship.org ]

Christina Riggs of the University of East Anglia wrote: “Bodily associations also permeate the realm of objects and images used in offering rituals. Model phalli and vulvae are attested as votive offerings, as are figurines of naked women and nursing women. Censers were made in the form of a human hand and offering tables could have pouring spouts in the shape of the glans penis. The action of pouring an offering (stj; water and water- related determinatives) is homologous with the word used for both ejaculation and impregnation (stj; phallus determinative), setting up a punning relationship between the body and the bodily act of prayerful libations. This link between sexuality and religious practice underscores the important role the body played in constructions of gender and sexual relations (see Hare 1999: 106 - 124; Meskell and Joyce 2003: 95 - 119).” [Source: Christina Riggs, University of East Anglia, UK, UCLA Encyclopedia of Egyptology 2010, escholarship.org ]
