fta: The artwork includes the earliest-and some of the most graphic-depictions of copulation in the world.

Chinese archeologist Wang Binghua discovered the petroglyphs in the late 1980s

Yeah I don't think the "bisexuals" they describe are anything of the sort.  They're all males having sex with females only difference is their cloths.  That hardly makes anyone bisexual.

Romans streamlined their prostitution by drawing what the prostitute's specialty on the door.  (helped slaves who didn't speak Latin)

Probably had a stage name like "Long Wang" or something.

I seem to recall reading that there was grafitti in Egypt that implied Hatshepshut was having 'relations' with the chief architect of her temple complex.

You would be correct.  Senenmut was his name.

Senenmut was his name, buildin' and bangin' was his game.

Sorry I couldn't help myself.

This is why I hate Iceland. They want to throw away millenia of culture just to "protect the children".

He was known for erecting big, thick columns that were rock hard.  Multiple columns in a row.

I've always been interested on the evolution of the depiction of human physiology.  Triangle people? I guess it was just the best effort at the time.  I have also always been thankful that we have reached such a detailed and wonderfully inaccurate ability to do so today.

No, no, no.  People actually looked like that back then...

That's what I've always wondered, just how accurate are the old petroglyphs?  Maybe our eyes functioned slightly differently or perhaps our abilities to perceive art and conceptualize what we see in to something creative has actually evolved on fundamental level.  I've always liked to think we haven't really changed that much as far as nuts and bolts are concerned but just built on experience and knowledge from ancestors, but maybe our wiring has evolved.

It's not physiological change it's development of technique. Painters only figured out perspective six hundred or so years ago. That's not sufficient time for any evolutionary change.

I've always thought that the medium of ancient art limited the artist. Like, scratch an accurate image with a rock onto another rock. Paint with a stick.

Not ashamed to admit that I giggled like a schoolboy upon seeing the archaeologist's name is "Wang".

I've heard tell that ancient triangle man hated both particle and person man.

"Chinese archeologist *Wang* Binghua discovered..."

No one picked up on this yet?

Some of the best old pr0n is in India..They have temples carved to the max with deities and avatars
going at it in every way possible. Pompeii has some nice porn fresco's too..Apparently Roman's used to
decorate the dressing rooms at their baths with some pretty naughty artwork too..


" Wang, this place might be restricted so don't tell anyone your Jewish, ok..fine..."
