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.
