People had sex in ancient Egypt? Surely, it was only for procreative purposes! That's what we were taught in school, church, and college. Now we come to find there was *blush* something called the Turin Erotic Papyrus -- shocking pornography from Egypt. The hieroglyphs show penises, eroticism, orgies, wanton abandon, pleasure, even bestiality. Is it the "gods" (devas and asuras), royalty, or ordinary citizens and slaves? Fortunately, graffiti survives from those ancient pyramids, tunnels, and tombs.

Now that we think of it, does it get any more erotic than ancient India and its temples celebrating -- and depicting -- sex manuals as temple walls? Of course, there are the ancient Greeks who are credited with inventing Western sexuality, and what the Romans were up to (think Caligula), well, who can be surprised that other countries and cultures knew about the birds, bees, and linga and yonis?

A papyrus scroll so hot, so lust inspiring, so puerile and swinger-like... How, Egypt?
