Sexuality in Ancient Egypt


The following documentary on Ancient Egyptian Sexuality was quite interesting. I enjoyed watching this informative show because it showed me a different perspective of Ancient Egypt.

Sexuality was a very important part of the Egyptian way of  life. It is said that music and sex were linked and when the sistrum was played the Goddess Hathor was present.

This documentary deals mostly with the Turin Papyrus which contains various drawings of sexual activity amongst the Ancient Egyptians.It is likened to Playboy Magazine due to the erotic pictures that can be clearly seen.

Within a cave that is closed to the public, there is a drawing of a woman, assumed to be Hatshepsut, having sex. The drawing was said to make fun of her because she was a King, a position usually held for men only.

All in all, I was fascinated and informed.

Enjoy the documentary and please feel free to leave your comments on the blog. I’d love to hear from you.

    Greetings Diva Mama Tonya,

    Unfortunately, the paparus of turin had very little to do with ancient Kemetic sexual practices. Its more like a series of political cartoons. The temple teachings that Diva Mama Nut goes with and even Dravidian Tantra are closer to the truth. I have the book sacred sexuality in ancient Egypt that shows the same series of pictures. I just don’t resonate with them as being teachings but political statements of the day. Supposedly the paparus of turin was done at a much later date when Egypt was once again being invaded. I could be way off in my perceptions but I just felt I should share. Love, Liaya

    Interesting video….I believe the 12 positions relate to the 12 zodiac signs. The language of the moderators was steeped in language which made me feel they were very prudish regarding sex.

    Diva Liaya, thank you for sharing. Interesting comment regarding political statements of the day. You have opened another door of research for me into Dravidian Tantra. Thank you. :-)

    SiStar Serud, I like the thought of the the 12 positions relating to the zodiac signs. There was one contributor who seemed a bit excited by her findings. I don’t recall her name right now but she was interpreting the love poem. I had to smile to myself when I saw that.

    Thanks for sharing. I enjoy food for thought. It is quite stimulating to say the least.
