Ancient Peruvian Sex Pottery

As we've covered before, ancient peoples displayed some pretty bizarre expressions of sexuality. The Incas and Moche created incredibly intricate clay vessels that could tell entire stories; stories like "Once upon a time, this lady had sex with Death himself."

Peru's Museo Larco has an "Erotic Gallery" stocked with this pervy pottery. We're talking couples in wide-eyed coitus, humongous genitalia, and a host of skeletons rattling their own bones.

It's easy to read tales of virility and patriarchy into these pieces, but scholars think there was a more basic reason: it's always been funny as hell to make your friends drink out of a penis-shaped cup.
