Brothel

How would you like your sex, sir?

Pompeii’s suburban baths

 When you visit Pompeii, you may well arrive by sea, and when you walk up to the Marine gate from the port (right) , there, just outside the gate, is the welcome sight of a set of baths, the Suburban Baths.

Here you will not only find all the delights of the baths, but also the additional delights of sex, for in the baths, there is as brothel too. .

But the most interesting aspect is the entrance hall which served as the undressing room, or apodyterium. But it is not only a place for undressing, it is also the offices for a brothel, where you could book up for some sexual entertainment, with one of the girls — or indeed one of the men.

To enable you to make your choice, there were a series of paintings along the top of the wall showing the various delights on offer. Note that under each picture, two thirds the way down, there is a number — presumably you could make your choice by number. You could say ,I would like number four please, and your chosen sexual deviation would be laid on for you.

At the far end there is a single naked male figure, leading on a table, apparently reading from a scroll or writing tablet.  Some suggest that he is a poet, providing song and music for the participants.  

Or is he perhaps the proprietor of the establishment, welcoming you in and taking down your details and your predilections. But note that he appears to have very large balls, perhaps indicating that if only you have enough sex in his establishment you too will grow large balls.

First on offer is the straightforward fuck. The young lady has her legs wide apart, all ready for you to unleash your tool and penetrate her.

Incidentally, the black feature curling out from her leg is a later attempt to desecrate the illustration – the Romans too had their prudes.

Or do you just want to be masturbated? Just lie on your side and the young lady will feel you up and masturbate you to a full climax. Or perhaps when you have got a nice erection, she will be happy to fuck you.

Or do you prefer oral sex? Just lie on your back, legs wide apart and lady will come and suck your penis and yes, she will take you to full ejaculation. After all these are Romans, and they are sexy!

 

 

 

Or do you prefer your oral sex the other way round? This lady will be happy to rely on her back with her legs apart, so you can put your tongue right up her cunt. Mind you, if you can suck her to climax she may well demand that you fuck her too.

Or is it a young man, offering his penis to be sucked?

Would you like your sex a little more kinky – do you like anal sex? Here are a lady kneels on all fours, so you can get your cock up her arse but then there is another attendant who will be happy to come behind you and stick his cock up your ass. Think how wonderful that will be, e, buggering and being buggered at the same time. Anyone for more kinks?

Or would you like an even kinkier foursome, when you are on all fours and sucking the cunt of the lady in front, while another lady behind is sucking your penis. To the left is a second male, just in attendance: your every wish is his command. Just how kinky do you want to get?

And when you have finished in the brothel, you may relax in the fine set of baths. It was in a prime position, looking out over the sea shore — no doubt a busy harbour. The principal attraction would have been this semicircular room looking out over the sea shore.

One must remember that the wall seen through the window is in fact the ashes that were dumped in the explosion of Vesuvius – originally it would have directly overlooked the sea.

This close-up of the mosaic shows a beautiful male figure – and the Romans often thought the nude male figure was more beautiful than the nude female figure — no breasts to get in the way. But note that his penis and balls are rather small — the Romans liked to see their penises neat and small, whereas today I think that if we are allowed to see a male penis, we like to see it big. But this is the Roman idea of naked pulchritude – which is male.
