Very strange things which excited the ancient EgyptiansBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/article/very-strange-things-which-excited-the-ancient-egyptians.html
What do we know about Ancient Egypt? Cleopatra, papyrus, pyramids, mummies... and dildos? In General, the representatives of an ancient civilization does not shun carnal pleasures. Some of them, let's be honest, was pretty creepy.
Even those who knew nothing about Ancient Egypt, must have heard about the belief of the Egyptians that after death there is another, no less rich life. After the death of the Egyptians was not going to abandon the pleasures of the flesh and carefully planned his after-life.
In the tomb along with the rich and revered by the Egyptians went not only essential belongings like food, drinks and things which dead had been tied during life, but also servants, horses and... artificial penises and false nipples. Yes, in the tombs were found overhead a Dildo attached to the mummies of men, and artificial nipples to the mummies of women. All these details, did the Egyptians need the dead in the afterlife realm, where the dead will be able to have sex when and with whoever you want.
Sounds romantic, right? We know that the Egyptians also loved to relax and indulged in the additional stimulants like alcohol, cocaine and marijuana. But there were more complex substances that can not be bought in the shop at home (cocaine and marijuana, fortunately, also did not buy). For example, blue water Lily, known as the "blue Lotus". This plant played a big role in the Egyptian culture, in particular used for medical, religious and cosmetic purposes. But not only...
The Turin erotic papyrus
Wine based blue Lotus was used as orgiastic fuel. It contained alkaloids: apomorphine and nuciferine. In addition to the hallucinogenic effect, these substances had the effect of arousing. In the Turin papyrus, a sort of "Playboy" of Ancient Egypt, depicted women involved in ritual sexuality. And they have no other clothing on but woven into the hair of the flowers of the Lotus.
The lack of rubber and silicone did not stop the ancient Egyptians. And if the rich people could afford to make a Dildo of pure gold, the average Egyptian had to be more adventurous and less squeamish. Yes, we already know about the dildos made of stone, wood and bone, but all these sex toys were a major disadvantage is their indomitable firmness. Sometimes you want something delicate. And here on the scene camels... Which become a source of... feces. Member of camel waste was very flexible, he could take any form and make it any size. The Egyptians covered it with resin to harden.
In addition to a love triangle with Julius Caesar and Marc Antony, Cleopatra was not unwilling to make love with other men. However, if there was no one suitable close at hand, she found other ways of self-gratification. It is not quite clear where truth and the imagination of the Romans, who did Cleopatra too sexy, but it was said that the Egyptian Queen filled pumpkin angry bees and used it as a vibrator. History is silent on whether there were any consequences in this game, but nevertheless it is not advised to repeat the trick at home.
As they say, guess why it is needed. Well, except for the salad dressing. In General, the oil is commonly used instead of lubricant — especially in cases where the partners did not have natural lubrication. Unlike many other cultures, the Egyptians did not stigmatize same-sex contacts. We remind only that in the modern world oil (no olive, no machinery) is not recommended for intimate lubrication.
The Egyptians believed that certain types of products are able to ignite passion. Among them — the pomegranate, the Mandrake root (no, he's not yelling as in "Harry Potter") and onions. Although now you will seldom meet the person who ate onions before a first date, the Egyptians were convinced that his sharp taste and should excite. So the priests who vowed to remain celibate, it was forbidden to eat these foods so they do not inadvertently succumbed to the temptation.
It would seem that it can be sexy in a salad-the lettuce? But the types of this product that grew in Ancient Egypt, was more direct and larger than today. And sometimes secretively specific white juice, resembling... well, you understand.
Julius Caesar wanted his sweetheart, Cleopatra was missed in his absence, and gave his mistress His the Golden Dildo (we don't know whether it was before or after bees).
