Episode Summary

Sex In the Ancient World: Pompeii & Egypt
Peer into the sex life of the ancients, from the princes and queens of Egypt to the prostitutes of Pompeii, in these two revealing episodes of Sex in the Ancient World. Observe with HISTORY the world's first sex manual, the Egyptian Turin Papyrus, and a wonderfully preserved brothel in Pompeii where pleasure-seeking male and female clients expressed multiform desires. From Egypt's fascinating tombs and temples, where the sex lives of the ancient Egyptians have been hidden from history for centuries, to the backstreets of Pompeii, where the perfectly preserved imprints of prostitutes' sandals, designed to leave arrows with the words this way on the dusty streets, Sex in the Ancient World Egypt and Pompeii make public the once concealed practices and private pleasures of these earliest of civilizations.moreless
