Earliest Pornography!? May 16, 2009

Sometimes it is appropriate to talk about porn. Here is one of the occasion. You can find porn easily today. But it is interesting to ask how early people have explicit interest in porn. The article, whose title is the Earliest Pornography? sheds new light to this question. A group in Germany unearthed a female statuette, dated back to more than 35000 years by carbon dating, in Germany. Wow, 35000 years is really old. The size of the statuette is pretty small, 6 centimeters tall and 3.4 centimeters wide. The statuette, made of mammoth ivory, shows enlarged breast and vulva. Although the definition of porn is a little bit subjective, maybe rather sensitive to your imagination, this one is not so controversial. They probably used it as some sort of decoration.

They probably used it in some kind of fertility ritual.

It’s evident, size of female’s brain was never overestimated by men… The statuette could serve as a sort of joke or 3D caricature from this POV. It remains me proportionally deformed cartograms, like these ones..

Alternatively, it could be ‘read’ as two people embracing, or (ahem) engaging in some other activity …

Hi Phil
It is up to your imagination.
