Tin-lalan orgy sculpture on the rock
Mankind’s oldest historic records are 5000 years old. From the ages of the first Egyptian pharaohs. Artistic history is much older. First attempt of art is 500,000 years old when some of our ancestors from the Homo erectus group scribbled zig-zag on a clam-shell. If you are searching for something more creative you must go to the time of 40,000 years ago when first Venuses were made.
Venus is a paleolithic sculpture of woman’s body with ritual and pornographic function. Till now we have found 13 statues. Most of them were found in the central European region. The oldest is the ivory Venus from Hohle Fehls. Nearly 40,000 years old. Second most important is Venus of Dolní Věstonice which is the first ceramic sculpture in the world (30,000 years old). All figurines depicts woman body with exaggerated sexual parts.
Prehistoric expert and famous archeologist Sir Paul Mellars ("could be seen as bordering on the pornographic") from Cambridge University admits the pornographic purpose of these figurines. It was a talisman and pornographic material. Men took this figurine on the hunt for better strength and for sexual arousal when a woman wasn’t near by. The size fits perfectly in one hand and the penis can go in the second hand. Men are visually excited and this theory is highly possible.
The oldest cave erotic art painting is 12,000 years old and comes from Creswell Crags in England. This symbol probably depicts stylized version of female genitalia. But I think it is very hard to say what is it. You can judge for yourselves.
If you are searching for the first depiction of real sex you must go to Africa to Tan Toudouft in Libya. It is a clear depiction of human coitus. This scribble to the rock is probably 7500 – 10000 BC. Hard to say if somebody modeled for the cave painter but this is first true porn!
Little bit younger (7200 years old) is two-fragmented figurines of people having sex. Everything is very well done including penis. The male figurine has the stylish name Adonis von Zschernitz.
Undoubtly the most spectacular prehistoric pornart are the rock scriptures of Tin-lalan in Libya. These scribbles are from 5000 BC. This prehistoric artists were probably the ancestors of Egyptians. Sahara was in Neolith’s more fertile region and rock scriptures with sexual theme are common to this time and place. People in that time worshiped fertility or Phallic cult. Their god had a head as a rabbit and penis was big like a tree. Archeologists thinks it was God of Erection (named Djenoun). God who when worshiped would give you a hard penis. Something like a spiritual Viagra. Making children and fertility was in those times probably very important and sex was very noble in this society.
In Tin-lalan rock drawings you can see orgies and gods. An interesting thing are the really big penises. You can even see ejaculation. This is without doubt 100% prehistoric pornography with religious subtext. Penis in erection was for this people very important and sex was worshiped as the symbol of life. I would like to remark on one important fact – pornography is much more older than invention of the alphabet and written material.
"Since man has left the world of beasts by standing up, he sees the sex of the other and it shows his. The erection is the most visible manifestation of sexuality of man. It is even more, it is the coupling and guarantor of the perpetuation of the species. It appears in all groups since the beginning of time that they view sex as one of the first symbols of life. "
Dr. Jean Loic Le Quellec, archeologist and prehistoric anthropologist of Sahara region
