Painted sometime in the Ramesside Period (1292-1075 B.C.E.), the fragments above—called the “Turin Erotic Papyrus” because of their “discovery” in the Egyptian Museum of Turin, Italy—only hint at the frank versions of ancient sex they depict (see a graphic partial reconstruction at the bottom of the post).
The number of sexual positions the papyrus illustrates—twelve in all – “fall somewhere between impressively acrobatic and unnervingly ambitious”, one even involving a chariot.
Adding this one to the Best of Pretty Awful category – just because of the part about chariots.
