Sex Throughout History

It was before the bible, a religion that spawned all religions on earth, the Sumerian’s. About 5500 years ago sex was highly looked upon by priests and priestesses (much like today’s clergy just open about it) and would offer it into rituals. Can I get an Amen ?? Anyway, in the Sumerian religion, the Goddess had sex with the ruler of the country to show the Goddess’s acceptance of him as a ruler and caretaker of the people. This is how the ceremony was scribed.

Sumerian Goddess Of Sex

Our Prime Priestess, acting for Inanna, is talking to Dumuzi the new king.
My vulva, the horn,
The boat of Heaven,
Is full of eagerness like the young moon.
My untilled land lies fallow.
As for me, Inanna,
Who will plow my vulva?
Who will plow my high field?
Who will plow my wet ground?
As for me, the young woman,
Who will plow my vulva?
Who will station the ox there?
Who will plow my vulva?

This is obvious, the horn represents the vagina as it curves and narrows toward the back.
On the male side, an old time plow (not the modern day tractor type) had a long, hard projection that pushed into the ground.

Dumuzi, the king replies:
Great Lady, the king will plow your vulva,
I, Dumuzi the King, will plow your vulva Inanna accepts him saying:
Then plow my vulva, man of my heart
Plow my vulva.

He is the one my womb loves best,
My high priest is ready for the holy loins.
My lord Dumuzi is ready for the holy loins.
The plants and herbs in his field are ripe.
O Dumuzi, Your fullness is my delight.
The high priestess then directs things to be readied
Inanna called for the bed.
Let the bed that rejoices the heart be prepared

Let the bed that sweetens the loins be prepared
Let the bed of kingship be prepared!
Let the bed of queenship be prepared!
Let the royal bed be prepared!
This bed was set up in front of the entire congregation. The people watched the entire ritual including the sexual part.

He shaped my loins with his fair hands,
The shepherd Dumuzi filled my lap with cream and milk.
He stroked my pubic hair.
He watered my womb.
He laid his hands on my holy vulva,
He smoothed my black boat with cream,
He quickened my narrow boat with milk.
He caressed me on the bed.
The King went with lifted head to the holy loins.
He went with lifted head to the loins of Inanna
He went to the queen with lifted head.
He opened wide his arms to the holy priestess of heaven.
We rejoiced together.
He took his pleasure of me.
He laid me down on the fragrant honey-bed
My sweet love, lying by my heart,
Tongue-playing, one by one,
My fair Dumuzi did so fifty times.
Now, my sweet love is sated.

After 50 times, the audience would cheer and shout in approval and appreciation. Performing sex in front of people in ancient days was not stressful or frowned on. Sex was conducted in religious ceremonies in groups and orgies. The Sumerian empire lasted thousands of years as well did the Roman empire, both had orgies. When the Spanish Inquisition and the holy wars erupted we discovered that sex was supposedly wrong. I myself was raised a hard core Catholic, we didn’t praise our religion, we mourned it. This probably explains why i like sex so much lol. The word orgy nowadays has a negative meaning …….thanks to current day religions and government powers, as well as suppression of knowledge. The original word orgy in Greek is “orgia” which means secret worship. Since most secret worship involved sexual rituals, and Christians were opposed to anything sexual the word orgy came to have the debased meaning it has today, rather than the noble, spiritual meaning of the original word. In ancient religions our creator loves us all, sex is not good nor bad, war is not good nor bad, kind of like Hindu, teaching to look at the positive in everything, and the Chinese yin yang, good and evil harmonizing the yin yang symbol………..I will end with this, Indian culture is very peaceful, and they have the teachings of Kama Sutra, which I am very fond of and astute in knowledge of multiple positions. I would recommend every couple try the positions in Kama Sutra.
