Possible Roman Sex Toy Found in Ancient Roman Fort in Northern England

roman sex toy?

A six-and-half-inch wooden penis discovered at a Roman fort in northern England could be the first-known example of a dildo – rather than as a darning needle, as archaeologists first assumed. The carved member was discovered in a ditch alongside dozens of shoes and dress accessories from the 2nd century, at Vindolanda – a Roman auxiliary fort in Northumberland – in 1992. Originally, the artefact was catalogued as a darning needle but new analysis by experts at Newcastle University and University College Dublin suggest it might have been used during sex. Research by the scientists has revealed that both ends … Read more

George Cecil Ives – Boogieman in Lavender

books - deposit photos

George Cecil Ives was gay before it was cool and openly gay before that was accepted. He was British and founded a secret society for “Homosexuals” called “The Order of Chaeronea” named after a battle where male lovers of the Theban Band had been slaughtered nearly 1500 years before. Ives co-founded what became the British Sexological Society, one of the first groups to take the study of human sexuality seriously. He knew Oscar Wilde personally and knew Lord Alfred Douglas intimately. And he was a writer. He wrote poetry, one novel and plenty of non-fiction. We know all this, because … Read more

HISTORY: The World’s Oldest-Known Porn Was Super Queer

Queer Historical Porn

On a huge red basalt outcrop in the remote Xinjiang region of northwest China, the world’s oldest porn, the Kangjiashimenji Petroglyphs, can be found – and they’re super queer. The Kangjiashimenji Petroglyphs are bas-relief carvings that are thought to have been created between 3,000 and 4,000 years ago. Petroglyphs, or ancient rock carvings, have been found across the globe, but what makes the Kangjiashimenji Petroglyphs special is that they are graphically sexual. Discovered in the late 1980s by Chinese archaeologist Wang Binghua, the petroglyphs depict elaborate copulation and fertility rituals, queer sex, and gender non-conforming figures.

You Knew They’d Make Robots for This

Henry the Sex Robot

New sex robots from leading AI robotics company RealDoll will be programmable as gay or straight, depending on your preference. RealDoll famously created Harmony, an AI sex robot with an animatronic head and Scottish accent, in 2019. Although Harmony was apparently designed a “bisexual flavour”, the company is now working on its first-ever male sex robot, Henry, and is creating artificial intelligence that will allow customers to programme their robot’s sexual orientation. In a video posted by company representative Brick Dollbanger on Instagram, Matt McMullen, CEO of RealDoll subdivision Realbotix, said developing Henry’s AI software was “complicated”. He said: “Not … Read more

SCIENCE: Turns Out Sperm Don’t “Swim” Like We Thought

sperm swimming

Under a microscope, human sperm seem to swim like wiggling eels, tails gyrating to and fro as they seek an egg to fertilize.  But now, new 3D microscopy and high-speed video reveal that sperm don’t swim in this simple, symmetrical motion at all. Instead, they move with a rollicking spin that compensates for the fact that their tails actually beat only to one side.  “It’s almost like if you’re a swimmer, but you could only wiggle your leg to one side,” said study author Hermes Gadêlha, a mathematician at the University of Bristol in the U.K. “If you did this … Read more
