Yep. Funnily enough, actual egyptians probably went out more naked/see through than we think of them even in sexualized depictions.

Nah. That's for beduins that travel in the desert, but egyptians at noon were doing a siesta.

There's also the Hyksos and the people who preceded them.

We really don't know exactly who they were, but there's damn good evidence that they're from the north. There's definitely Indo-European influence there, seeing how they brought the chariot. There's also Semitic influence there, judging from their rites and names and gods.

The Hyksos were probably some sort of Phonecians, also not blond. The only blonds in egypt until the romans took over and started making everything all prudish would have been random slaves brought from the Greeks.

>> No.51782948

You mean Canaanites or Hurrians, Phoenicia was established a bit later. Still not blond, though, not predominantly.

Anyway, it doesn't really matter, there is physical evidence for red haired Egyptians from ancient times and blond Egyptians from later times. Also there's also evidence for Egyptians dying their hair and/or wigs.

It's not that much of a stretch to say that some Egyptians had light hair, either naturally or dyed, regardless of the period you pick. Probably less likely during the Nubian pharaohs, but pretty likely before and after that time.

Bronze age cultures in general were pretty lewd in comparison to the social mores we have today. They didn't have a religion that said anything about nudity or sex being sinful and didn't even have all the taboos we have (such as sibling marriage, although that was limited to some social strata and periods, most likely). The climate also didn't require them to wear much unless they wanted to, so clothes and jewelry were more a sign of expression than modesty.

The ancient Egyptians consistently depicted their men as tan and rugged from being in the sun, but their women as impossibly fair-skinned. For a woman of that time to be so well off as to not have to work was a measure of tremendous power and wealth in her husband.

Why is missionary the 'standard' position anyway? I admit I'm far from an expert on sex, but it seems illogical to me. Missionary is kind of awkward: the man is heavier than the woman and needs to position his dick in such a way that it fits in the woman's vagina (with the penis being on the front of the groin, and the vagina at the bottom of the groin). This leads to the man having to awkwardly arch his back. He's also heavier than the woman (usually) so he has to be careful not to lean on her too much, further making that awkward arched position a neccessity. And then he has to thrust while keeping all the aforementioned in mind. And after the sex is over, the man has to awkwardly roll off the woman.

Cowgirl feels like a much more natural 'standard' position to me. Due to the position of the genitals on the two sexes she can simply sit on the man's penis in a very natural position, and she doesn't have to worry about distributing her weight because she's (usually) far lighter than the man. Because of this, after the sex is over she can remain in place for post-coital cuddling.

It just makes more sense that way.

have you ever actually had sex in the missionary position? (or had sex at all?)

i mean, in my experience it's just the most natural-feeling position. if you don't think about "position" at all it's just where you end up. idk how or why but it felt a lot easier that basically anything else. and cowgirl was really unsatisfying. it's a nice change of pace sometimes but most women lack the strength to properly raise and lower themselves with any kind of respectable tempo and you end up just wanting to roll them over and go back to fucking them properly

This. Women prefer getting fugged, not doing the fugging. Cowgirl only works if you spend the whole time lifting her slightly into the air like some kind of sex doll while you plunder away.

If you look at biology, technically doggy style is what we're built for, it's how chimps do it, but with the rise of higher emotion we want to see our partners face during sex, to get that greater sense of empathy as we give and receive pleasure, hence the missionary position becoming the general standard.

Just try it and you'll get it.

In practice, a female ruler who assumed the position of Pharaoh/king during the classic era of Egypt's history (roughly up until the end of the New Kingdom) would assume a number of male kingly names and titles and often choose to be depicted in art as a male. Hatschepsut, being the most notorious female regent, depicted herself as a full man doing regular Pharaonic iconic activities in her inscriptions. As Pharaoh you effectively WERE male, regardless of your biological sex.

>>cut off all your hair
>>put on a wig anyway

Lice. Due to the humidity and heat in the Nile valley, real hair got very greasy and hard to keep hygienic, especially during the season when water was scarce. Thus it was a status symbol to shave and oil your head and wear a wig over it which you could just take off. As a result of this, hair was considered extremely erotic in Egyptian art and literature.

"To catch her without her wig" is an expression that was sometimes used in the same way we would say "caught naked in public".

Well, what wuz you exactly? Wuz you the Celts who got dominated by the Romans for centuries and then got their shit pushed in by the Anglo-Saxons? Wuz you the Anglo-Saxons who got FRENCH'D? Or Wuz you the Normans, forcing you to admit your French/Latin origins?

The Normans were vikings. The french refused to deal with them and invented the motte-and-bailey castle instead.
Very little Roman blood remains in britain after they left.
Personally, I have more viking blood than anything. Blue eyes, blonde(ish) hair, height, tendency to wander.

yes because women stick things down men's dicks for the women's pleasure.

Look kiddo, nothing personnel but when you grow up you'll find that men who enjoy things being stuck down their dicks are a diamond dozen, and even you will stick things down your dick for sexual gratification.

Netflix are SJWs who want to encourage the myth of one-directional "historical progress" for their pet political causes. It's the same reason time travel shows and movies are banned in China.

If we could combine the modern distaste for war with some of the ancient attitudes toward clothing, we'd have world peace. Everyone walking around naked, enjoying each other's beauty, having so much sex that everyone is too happy and relaxed to ever feel like fighting.

Yes. His sexuality shouldn't be strictly restrained like that. He should be free to embrace his sexuality as he wishes.

Besides, if you're with him, you're presumably attracted to him, so why wouldn't you rather just be fucking him all the time? I've never heard of men who enjoy putting chastity belts on women and denying them sex.

Sometimes I really wish I was gay. Gay guys really love and appreciate men. Also, you can be a slender sub if you want, and it's perfectly acceptable and welcome. You're not forced to be a big muscular dom like you are with most straight women.
