Prehistoric Sex Toy?
Experts say it is 28,000 years old, and it is clearly a phallus for the liberated cave woman.....


Prehistoric siltstone phallus, the world's oldest sex toy, was also used as tool to ignite fires

By Rosemary Black
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER

The world's oldest sex toy was more than just a feel-good aid. The 30,000-year-old siltstone phallus doubled as a tool to ignite fires.

The racy relic was found in a cave in Germany and is being studied at the University of Tubingen there, according to Independent Online.

The find was a rare one since examples of masculinity from that period are unusual to stumble upon, although female-inspired works of art are rather common.

The prehistoric phallus, which has marks where it was obviously used for striking against flints, also features carved rings around one polished end. Researchers say it's easy to see what it was used for.

The scientists pieced together the multitasking tool from more than a dozen fragments found in a cave complex linked with the activities not of the Neanderthals, but of modern humans.

The sex toy is estimated to be at least 28,000 years old and apparently had been discarded after being broken. There's no evidence as to how that happened. Jealous boyfriend? Frustrated spinster? The secret may be safe with early cave dwellers.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Her great age and pronounced female forms quickly established the Venus of Willendorf as an icon of prehistoric art. She was soon included in introductory art history textbooks where she quickly displaced other previously used examples of Paleolithic art. Being both female and nude, she fitted perfectly into the patriarchal construction of the history of art. As the earliest known representation, she became the "first woman," acquiring a sort of Ur-Eve identity that focused suitably, from a patriarchal point of view, on the fascinating reality of the female body.

Study: Prehistoric Man Had Sex for Fun

Sunday, April 29, 2007


He may have come down from the trees, but prehistoric man did not stop swinging. New research into Stone Age humans has argued that, far from having intercourse simply to reproduce, they had sex for fun.

Practices ranging from bondage to group sex, transvestism and the use of sex toys were widespread in primitive societies as a way of building up cultural ties.

According to the study, a 30,000-year-old statue of a naked woman -- the Venus of Willendorf -- and an equally ancient stone phallus found in a German cave, provide the earliest direct evidence that sex was about far more than babies.

Timothy Taylor, reader in archeology at Bradford University, reviewed evidence from dozens of archeological finds and scientific studies for his research.

“The widespread lay belief that sex in the past was predominantly heterosexual and reproductive can be challenged,” said Taylor.

He argues that monogamy only became established as hunter-gatherer societies took up agriculture and settled in houses, allowing the social roles of men and women to become more fixed.

Experts believe research such as Taylor’s may help overturn false assumptions that sex for the purposes of reproduction is the form closest to nature.

Petra Boynton, a relationship counselor and health lecturer at University College, London, found the study “refreshing.”

“So much evolutionary theory promotes the idea that humans, particularly women, are preprogrammed for monogamy, but that is often simply overlaying science on a pre-existing view of society,” she said.

Taylor, whose research is published by Haworth Press in the Handbook of the Evolution of Human Sexuality, says the human attitude to sex arose from the complex interaction of physical and mental development. By comparison with modern humans, who appeared about 300,000-100,000 years ago, apes have tiny male genitals, no female breasts and are hairy. But they are easily able to distinguish the sexes because males can weigh up to three times as much as females.

Humans, by contrast, are far less easy to distinguish by size. Taylor says that prominent male genitals and female breasts developed to aid recognition of the opposite sex in creatures of similar size and shape. The similarity in size, combined with the ease of face-to-face sex, allowed intercourse to become a vital part of social interaction, communication and inventiveness.

I have to argue against the notion that just because they were hunter gather's they were unable to use grinding tools.

Take the gathering aspect, they most likely gathered a lot of different herbs for medicinal uses before somebody got it in their head to tend a plot of land and domesticate wild herbs.

Dried herbs were used by Hunter/Gatherers, they would pick and dry the herb (even fruits like berries) and dry them for use later on. Most likely plenty of roots were being used as well.

Just because they didn't plant/sow/cultivate/harvest a plot of land in a settled farm setting doesn't mean they didn't know how to use herbs.

Some of the older grimoires of witches (herb using witches) specify hunting down and gathering wild variants of herbs, specify grinding them (mortar and pestle) prior to use. Many of those older existing grimoires have recipes for medicines that actually do something chemical (drug-like).

Simple grinding tools would have been in use prior to the domestication of grains because we were eating grains well before we actually decided to raise and domesticate and breed grain. Unleavened bread (flour and water cooked over a flame) most likely was being used a dozen centuries before the first wheat seed was purposefully planted by a human being.

Yes, this relates back to Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. I had to dig through my old college texts to find it, and then find a good link for it. But it describes basic human needs that must be met before one can become a 'valuable consumer'.

Here is a snippet of info, and a link where you can read more, if you are interested:

Physiological needs

For the most part, physiological needs are obvious—they are the literal requirements for human survival. If these requirements are not met (with the exception of clothing, shelter, and sexual activity), the human body simply cannot continue to function.

Physiological needs include:

* Breathing
* Food
* Homeostasis

Air, water, and food are metabolic requirements for survival in all animals, including humans. Clothing and shelter provide necessary protection from the elements. The intensity of the human sexual instinct is shaped more by sexual competition than maintaining a birth rate adequate to survival of the species.
[edit] Safety needs

With their physical needs relatively satisfied, the individual's safety needs take precedence and dominate behavior. These needs have to do with people's yearning for a predictable, orderly world in which injustice and inconsistency are under control, the familiar frequent and the unfamiliar rare. In the world of work, these safety needs manifest themselves in such things as a preference for job security, grievance procedures for protecting the individual from unilateral authority, savings accounts, insurance policies, reasonable disability accommodations, and the like.

For most of human history many individuals have found their safety needs unmet, but as of 2009[update] "First World" societies provide most with their satisfaction, although the poor must often still address these needs.

Safety and Security needs include:

* Personal security
* Financial security
* Health and well-being
* Safety net against accidents/illness and their adverse impacts

[edit] Love and Belonging

After physiological and safety needs are fulfilled, the third layer of human needs are social and involve feelings of belongingness. This aspect of Maslow's hierarchy involves emotionally based relationships in general, such as:

* Friendship
* Intimacy
* Family

Humans need to feel a sense of belonging and acceptance, whether it comes from a large social group, such as clubs, office culture, religious groups, professional organizations, sports teams, gangs ("Safety in numbers"), or small social connections (family members, intimate partners, mentors, close colleagues, confidants). They need to love and be loved (sexually and non-sexually) by others. In the absence of these elements, many people become susceptible to loneliness, social anxiety, and clinical depression. This need for belonging can often overcome the physiological and security needs, depending on the strength of the peer pressure; an anorexic, for example, may ignore the need to eat and the security of health for a feeling of control and belonging.[citation needed]

Sex is a far more complex thing than just for reproduction. In our species we can do a lot with sex, we use it as a tool, and means to and end. Today we see it being used to sell stuff to others, sex is the number one advertising tool.

The basic human 'animal' doesn't have sex to procreate, they have sex because it feels good.

Most of us here on earth are accidents, we are by products of two people who were looking to feel good, not two people who got down and seriously working on producing offspring.

IF sex was just for procreation then there would be no satisfaction in the manual manipulation of our sex organs (masturbation). However since we are able to 'get off' and feel good with a bit of manual manipulation then it is clear that sex is a bit more than just the mechanics of swapping DNA.

Look at all the guys who hire prostitutes... what you think they are looking to procreate offspring? No they are scratching an itch, fulfilling a deeper need which is often emotional and is satisfying.


Even how we describe sex as an urge, a need, an itch indicates that it is far more than just an act of procreation.

I respectfully disagree, as the oldest reference I can find is here:

Etymology

The English “mortar” derives from classical Latin mortarium, meaning, among several other usages, "receptacle for pounding" and "product of grinding or pounding". The classical Latin pestillum led to the English "pestle", meaning "pounder". The Roman poet, Juvenal, applied both mortarium and pestillum to articles used in the preparation of drugs, reflecting the early use of the mortar and pestle as a pharmacist’s or apothecary’s symbol.[1] The antiquity of these tools is well documented in early literature, such as the Egyptian Ebers Papyrus of c. 1550 B.C.E. (the oldest preserved piece of medical literature) and the Old Testament (Numbers 11:8 and Proverbs 27:22).[2]

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

If you can find a link to another article with an earlier date, I would be interested in reading it.
