The History of Sex

Caught bits of a History Channel piece on the history of sex last night, but a friend was over, so we were talking through it and I missed a lot. But it’s amazing how much power and influence the church exerted over the populace. There must have been a lot of fucking going on in the middle ages until the church clamped down and created a theology of sex, basically saying, it was only ok in marriage, and then, only for procreation. So there. I did like the part of the morality play they mentioned where the talking penis is put on trial, but when his lady walks in, he “rises” to greet her, and she pleads on his behalf, and he is spared being cut off. Then there was a whole thing on midieval dildos, but I didn’t catch what they were made of!
