Ancient Stone Dick Dildo Found In Cave

I thought that headline would catch your attention. Smiley1

I found the news in several locations, including the BBC.

"A sculpted and polished phallus found in a German cave is among the earliest representations of male sexuality ever uncovered, researchers say. The 20 cm-long, 3 cm-wide stone object, which is dated to be about 28,000 years old, was buried in the famous Hohle Fels Cave near Ulm in the Swabian Jura. The prehistoric "tool" was reassembled from 14 fragments of siltstone."

Heh heh. He said "tool". He said "Hohle".

"Its life size suggests it may well have been used as a sex aid by its Ice Age makers, scientists report."

Brings new meaning to the phrase "getting your rocks off", doesn't it?

I can't imagine a woman wanting to stick this thing inside of her. First off, it's bound to be cold. After all, it's a rock. Second, it isn't exactly pliable. Did these scientists come up with the brilliant idea that this must be a prehistoric sex toy because men think women would get off by sticking a cold chunk of rock inside of her? How phallocentric.

My understanding is that they're NOT interpreting it as a sex toy but as sculpture dipicting male sexuality. The same way the Venus of Willendorf is one of female fertility. More than likely it was used in relgious ceremonies, not the sex act.

And why would a woman use a dildo that small?

4 inches long, barely an inch wide. Don't think so.

Oops, I realized just as I hit the post button that I got my metric conversions all wrong.

It was EIGHT inches long. Much more reasonable.

It was probably really an implement to pound acorns into flour or something like that as they had a process in Germany that they pounded acorns and them washed them several times to remove the tanic acid so they could use acorns for food.

I mean looking around at many kitchens today, if you didn't know what all those implements are used for, a Martian could land and think he was in a torture chamber and that every home had one...

I think it's silly to think that prehistoric people would waste time making something like that...that is a modern civilization's vanity to bother with that sort of thing...
