Acrobatic Ancient Egyptian Sex

Turin-Reconstruction

Fun sex fact: the earliest known depiction of sex is called the Turin Erotic Papyrus, and it is filthy. Looking at the reconstruction above is a little like playing Where’s Waldo, only Waldo is an extra-long penis, and he’s everywhere.

Maybe one day, when we’re in peak physical condition and we have a chariot lying around, we’ll give our own reproduction of the Turin Erotic Papyrus a try. Until then, we can only be impressed by the erotic imagination of one kinky Ancient Egyptian artist.

Do you cosplay? If you don’t you’re about to want to. If you do, you’ll probably want to step up your game. Our new BFF Ron Miller just posted many 70′s cosplay pictures, from his personal collection, to io9. They are glorious (and mostly NSFW).

If you’ll excuse us, we have to go track down some wings, scales, and sequined undergarments.

You knew that we’re the oldest operating sex store in the country, right? Did you know that the first sex store in the world was a West German joint called the Institute of Marital Hygiene? (Yeah, we don’t think we’ll be changing our name anytime soon.) These and so many more facts about sex stores can be found on Tilly Pop’s most recent post, “The History of Adult Stores, Part I (1962-1977).”

A Downton Abbey Porn Parody? Heavens!

We were deeply happy to discover that Down on Abby, the porn parody of everyone’s favorite soap opera set in an English manor house, is in the works. From Time:

The porn version of Julian Fellowes’ award winning drama is set at the illustrious estate of Bottomley Manor owned by * ahem * Lord and Lady Grabhem who live there with their stepdaughters Abby and Fanny and, naturally, a manservant called Master Bates.

What can we expect? Erotic silver-polishing? Vintage underclothes? Homoerotic tension in the trenches? There are so many possibilities.

A Vintage Vibe, Reviewed

vintage vibrator

As much as we might like the idea of a retro-looking baby blue toy, the idea of actually using an actual vintage vibrator is a little scary. Still, we were pretty excited to see that one brave toy reviewer decided to take this – ahem – scalp massager from the 1950s for a test drive.

“The Handy Hannah sits on the back of your hand and stays on via six springy metal straps. I found that my hand became red and chapped-looking with only a few minutes of use, and can’t imagine how uncomfortable I would feel after longer periods of use (or, say, while wearing the Vitalator to give head massages). Luckily, it’s powerful enough that longer periods aren’t necessary, even for the orgasmically challenged.”
