The Randy Romans

The Romans were the sexist of all peoples. Whereas for most other peoples, sex was something special, to be seen only in temples or special places,   for the Romans, sex was not something special, but something for everyday enjoyment, and nude scenes are found on every day wall paintings. Often the paintings are of mythological subjects, but often too they were of real people, and you were proud to have a naked picture of your wife or your husband, to show off to one’s guests.

Much of the evidence for this comes from a single source, the provincial town of Pompeii, the city that was overwhelmed by the volcano Vesuvius in A.D. 79. Here the ordinary houses have been excavated and provide a vivid insight into the life of the ordinary wealthy inhabitants of Pompeii, Let’s take a look at some of the pictures found on the walls of ordinary houses in Pompeii.

The Romans, like the Greeks before them, were also proud participants in the delights of buggery, and believed that every growing boy should be introduced to these pleasures by a slightly older comrade. A fine display of homosexuality can be seen on the Warren cup, one of the treasures of the British Museum, with intimate pictures of buggery in progress.

The Romans were also well aware of the delights of sadomasochism as can be seen in the famous whipping scene from the Villa of the Mysteries at Pompeii
