28.03.2013

On the discovery of man-made object, very similar to the penis, said archaeologists from the Antiquities Authority
Israel (Israeli Antiquities Authority (IAA). They conducted excavations in the Western Galilee near Ahihud — on the ground, on which must pass a new railway line connecting Akko and Karmiel.

Analysis has shown that the cultural layer, from which he was removed remarkable artifact, about 9,000 years. In those days there was quite a large settlement. From it are preserved foundations of buildings, floors, plastered walls of.

On-site excavations, archaeologists have found and many small objects — stone axes, blades. Penis was of them.

In addition to the penis was found engraved with an image reminiscent of the female genital organs. In connection with this research leaders Yitzhak Paz (Yitzhak Paz) and Jacob Vardi (Yakov Vardi) suggested that such items were iconic sex symbols ("cultic sexual symbols"). They can be used in rituals aimed at increasing the fertility of agricultural land.

Alternative versions of the most popular is the most straightforward: that archaeologists have unearthed a dildo Stone Age — "ancient dildo", as they are sometimes called the findings of this kind. And it happens. For example, the last time something like this has been found in Sweden (Mesolithic site in Motala, Sweden). Age Swedish penis is close to the Israeli. It is made of bone. And not too large — about 11 centimeters in length and about 2 inches in diameter.

Findings from Israel and Sweden are interested anthropologists. If they — these findings — and in fact served the same purpose as their modern counterparts silicone. After all sizes of dildos allow us to judge or an anatomical — very modest — the features of the ancient men, or about the physiological — as modest — female preferences Stone Age.

It is possible that the characteristics and preferences have changed over time. More ancient stone penis, found in 2004 in Germany in the Swabian Jura, much larger. Archaeologists have discovered an artifact of Tübingen led by Nicholas Conard (Nicholas Conard) in a cave near Shelklingena (Schelklingen) and also suggested that it is a phallic symbol.

The subject, however, carefully polished, which generates most obscene thoughts about women's enthusiasm for leisure. And they — hobbies — at least 28,000 years. This is the age of the associated item. At length he was a little more than 19 centimeters in diameter — about 3 centimeters.

There is, of course, and a version that is not associated with sex — even with the symbolic. All of these supposedly penises might just be cooking tools — for example, pistils, which pounded grain in mortars. Proponents of this hypothesis point to wear and chipping at the head of artifacts.

The true purpose of strange things no one knows. According to experts, to uncover the truth can only be in the event that on some of the walls of the caves in which lived ancient people, there is a corresponding image. This is possible — our ancestors often illustrate their case.

BTW

Current trends

Tastes of the current women are close to those that existed in the Stone Age — about 9,000 years ago. Research carried out repeatedly testify that most running sex shops silicone mimics a length of about 13 centimeters.
