Porn from Pompeii

When is porn just erotica? When it's a fresco from Pompeii. It's ok children, you can look because it's archeology, history, art, culture.

These pictures are of frescoes from the brothel in Pompeii.

It must have been good times for all until Vesuvius erupted.

Of course, anyone who is religiously inclined will immediately turn to thoughts of God. (see previous post)
Religious people are always thinking about sex, Ted Haggard for example.

I bet some bible basher will say that it was God's wrath that caused Vesuvius to erupt and punish the people of Pompeii for their sins.

Oh well, I suppose the Taliban will want to blow the place up.

I've heard that they've even uncovered porn graffiti on the site.

hehe, you should see what the Indians have in the way of ancient sculpture, makes this stuff look very tame!

Thats one more reason for me to visit. I saw the pompeii porn grafitti on history show about ancient sex.

I should comment that the word "porn" is derived from the Greek for prostitute. Its appropriate that these pictures of prostitutes be described as pornography.
