A Cultural History of Sex Toys
Author: Richard Battenberg
More than 500 years of erotic history of sex with accessories, explained and richly illustrated.
An unbelievable collection – scientific, raunchy, informative, and hot. Simply put: the collected dildo-in-action erotism as an illustrated book.
A dildo is a sex toy, which most simulates the form and function of an erect penis. The history of the dildos begins already in antiquity. Since then it has been produced in various materials, colours, and shapes. Dildos are used for vaginal and anal penetration as well as masturbation and stimulation of the clitoris or G spot for women and the prostate for men.
A dildo is a prosthetic extension of one’s physical form and allows people to perform sexual acts, which their biological bodies prevent them from doing. They allow women to penetrate men, each other, and themselves, and men to penetrate themselves and more than one other man at the same time. What’s likeable about dildos is that they can be used by both heterosexuals and homosexuals, just not always in the same way.
Ancient cultures used dildos not just during sex, but also in rituals for worshipping gods and for defloration.
This illustrated book consists of 200 pictures, the majority of which are erotic illustrations and photographs from antiquity until today. The pictures come from a huge range of different collections and sources. We have annotated some of these more in text. Both scientific and pornographic aspects concerning dildos are commented on, creating the most interesting and diverse collection on the topic of dildos.
