    Default 10 Ways In Which Ancient Civilizations Perceived Sexuality

    Sex has enraptured mankind from the very beginning of time, but is still a subject that is treated as 'hush-hush'. What you might not know is that, people in the past had taboos but they saw sexuality in a completely way from what we do today. Some of the sexual practices of the people of the past were bizarre even by our modern standards.

    Here are a few:

    1. Ancient Chinese Sexacapades



    People in ancient China were more than just generous, men would have no qualms when it came to renting out their wives for the night to strangers.

    Hard to digest? But according to them sexy time with other men was a promise for a healthy offspring and a better future

    Apart from that, the Chinese emperor literally had a roster for all the concubines that he had to spend time with. Homosexuality was also accepted, with a condition that the men must marry women.

    Talk about being liberal!

    2. The Greeks & Masturbation



    The Greeks were perfectly okay with two males being in love, as long as one of them was a child, which is absolutely twisted.

    They also viewed masturbation as the best way to vent out all the pent up sexual energy and therefore encouraged men to go on a 'whack off' spree! Might sound ridiculous, but they saw it as the best way to curb rapes.

    3. Gender bias in homosexuality in Rome



    For Romans, it was perfectly fine for a man to be gay, but lesbianism was a huge no no. When it came to sexual acts patriarchy prevailed, women had no room to express themselves.

    Infidelity was a death knell for women, but they had no choice but to let their spouses go philandering. Talk about double standards!

    4. Medieval Europe Had Rule Book For Sex



    When it came to coitus, Medieval Europe literally had a rulebook for the sexual positions people could get into. Believe it or not, anal and oral sex were huge no no because they could only be practiced for pleasure, not procreation. Pre-marital or extra-marital sex was a serious risk and was punishable by death.

    When it came to sex, people during the this era were more than happy to keep it as limited as possible. It was all about honing one's self control, men literally had rings in the form of clamps that would arrest *****ions. That's how rigid they were!

    Pre-Islamic Arabs had particular days in which they could have sex and they preferred Fridays to be the best day. Just like the Chinese they too practiced wife lending. Poor families would lend their wives to the rich to produce what they considered 'prestigious offsprings.'
