Sex in History

Elephant and Crocodile dungTake a look at this. Believe or not, this is a contraceptive tampon that dates from 1550 B.C. The recipe for this item was found on the Ebers Papyrus, a compendium of medical practices that was written in Egypt 3500 years ago. (still of ingredients) The formula translates as "Acacia and dates are ground fine with a bit of honey. Seed wool is moistened therewith and placed in her vulva. A woman will cease to conceive for 1 year, 2 years or 3 years."

Surprisingly, it may actually have worked, since acacia ferments into lactic acid, an ingredient that is currently used in spermicides. Of course, with all that pyramid building, who knows when they had time for sex?
