For some reason, it is assumed that in recent years people have become depraved : naked bodies on TV, sex in the newspapers and magazines, not to mention the Internet. But pornography has existed since time immemorial.
For example,at the beginning of our era, the political and the secular elite of China had indecent images (lower scrap company did not have such an opportunity, because the production of porn images cost was very expensive).
The magnificent jade comb, might have been made in the Southern Dynasty
period 420 – 589 н.э.
In those days, were written many books on how to behave in bed. Compared with them books, Kama Sutra can be considered as a simple book of life (after all, there is actually only a few chapters devoted to sex.)
In medieval Europe, fared no better. Even Leonardo da Vinci paid attention to the obscenity. Save the sketch titled "Coitus", which is reproduced with the anatomical accuracy of sexual intercourse (sex organs are drawn in section).
Prostitution flourished in those days, and selling women is not regarded as human beings. Even the Church is not treated the sex with the "night butterflies" as adultery. . A natural result was an unprecedented development of the market prostitutes.
A small otstupoenie: Representatives of the oldest profession (prostitutes) in the Middle Ages were to be an indispensable piece toilet - the green sleeves.
In the XVIII century, started a boom of pornographic pictures and texts. Even philosophers reads their porn work directly on the square. A well-known artists painted prints that do not yield the content of today's porn production. Even the wife of Louis XVI awarded pornographic pamphlets. Marie Antoinette incriminate in an extramarital affair not only with men but with women!
However, do not think that it all started with the ancient Chinese. In the excavations of the ancient city of Pompeii frescoes are found, archaeologists have even blushed. They say that the Romans were not ashamed at all stages of copulation and lavishly adorned the walls of their own homes. Wherever you went to visit, you will definitely see a huge male reproductive organ above the dining table.
So we are lucky - we live in an era of remarkable chaste!
