In Nantucket, they found a dildo in a chimney. It seems probable that it belonged to the wife of a sailor, circa 18th century. It was used because her husband was at sea for so long.
So much for the New England puritanical morality.
I’m going to step out on a limb and wonder if that dildo didn’t get some action when husband was at home too.
Indeed, I’m going to wonder how many spinsters figured out how to get a hold of one for their own sexual gratification.
There are dildos from the Upper Paleolithic era. The ruins of Pompeii were littered with them. Its not a new thing. And yet we still don’t talk about them much. We are far more willing to talk about men’s masturbation then women’s.
I’m wondering if they talked about them in the upper paleolithic era? Was there a time when there was no shame associated with it? When did it become a shame thing? I suppose when sex itself became shameful.
