pompeii sex eroticaExcavated Sex in Pompeii 

Explicit Erotic art was discovered after excavations in the ancient city of Pompeii, roman empire Italy in the 18th century. Sexual adventurism really begins to kick in, because the sexual mores of the ancient Roman culture were much more liberal than today. The Christian god is non-sexual.

Ancient Greeks and Roman gods did anything they liked: gay/homosexuality, straight sex and with more the better, in brothels and bathing houses.

bacchus god of wine bacchanaliaBacchanalia, Ancient Times?

Bacchanalia were secret wild erotic and mystic festivals of the Roman god Bacchus (= Greek god Dionysus) Women gone wild on three days in the year, attended by women only in the grove of Simila near the Aventine Hill.

bacchanalia erotic festivalPriestess Paculla Ania from Campania changed largely the rules of Bacchanalias. In 188 BC Paculla admitted men to participate and celebrations took place five days of initiation a month: men and women,  noble and common people, free and slaves, any way of (group) sex (straight, gay, lesbian) was allowed. But only till the age of 20 were initiated.

The rites of hot women gradually turned into sexual orgies especially of men. Men who did not obey the dominatrix women where hid in caves, where they were said to have been kidnapped by the gods.

Led in 186 BC to a Senate decree: the Senatus consultum de Bacchanalibus, inscribed on a bronze tablet discovered in Puglia, Italy (1640), now at the Natural History Museum Vienna, by which the Bacchanalia were prohibited throughout all Italy except in certain special cases. Prohibited or not, these explosions of sex survived for a very long time!!

Greek & Roman god Apollo is the Sun & Wine God who brings heat (well he still does!) and one of the Olympian divinities, who all competed in the nude. This athletic ideal of manly beauty had the most gay lovers, homosexual relationships of all the Greek gods.

Spartan prince Hyacinth and Heracles descendant Cyparissus for example. But the bisexual god had also heterosexual liasons like with Cassandra and Daphne. Apollo's infatuation was caused by an arrow from Eros, who was jealous because Apollo had made fun of his archery skills. Typically male!

Porn in Vatican Library?

porn vatican, da vinci code dan brownA never ending rumour goes around that the Vatican Library holds the largest collection of pornography in the world. Sorry, but this is false!

Just a very few pornographic materials of the books mentioned in the Index Librorum Prohibitorum, the List of Prohibited Books are present and some mildly erotic works of art.

The index is a list of publications which the Catholic Church censored for being a danger to itself and the faith of its members and was regularly updated until the 1948 edition. The book the Da Vinci Code Dan Brown will be part of the list, like the Marquis de Sade repertoire. With references to the occult, even Harry Potter is prohibited.
