Check Out This Hot First Century Porn

Illustration for article titled Check Out This Hot First Century Porn

One of the oldest pieces of British porn has been discovered in mud near the Putney Bridge in London. The artifact from the first century A.D. looks like it might feature two blobs wrestling, but it's actually a kind of token used in brothels across the Roman Empire, which one could turn in for a particular sex act. It's been handed over to the Museum of London, where it will provide cheap thrills to kids on field trips.

DISCUSSION

This reminds me of my term paper for my History of Women in China & Japan class in college. I chose to write about homosexuality (of both sexes as it's a gender topic which the teacher was all excited about) and that paper was the funniest and most fun I've ever written. I had to discuss huge shipments of porn wood carvings, books of porn, sex toys... It was good times.
