See the Sex Toys That Were Used in Masturbating 28,000 Years Ago

A 7.8-inch (20cm) long, 1.1-inch (3cm) wide stone object (pictured) was found in the Hohle Fels Cave near Ulm in the Swabian Jura. The prehistoric ‘tool’ is made from 14 fragments of siltstone and dates back 28,000 years. Due to its size, experts believe it may be the earliest example of a sex aid ever foundIt seems the act of masturbation is not a recent craze among humans. For thousands of years, phallic objects have been used to symbolise fertility, ward off evil spirits and as sexual aids.

Recently, a 28,000-year-old stone phallus was found in Germany (second photo above) and it has been quoted as the oldest known ‘sex toy’ ever found. 

More discoveries show that phalluses…or what we have come to know today as dildos and vibrators…were made from stone, wood, leather and even camel dung. These objects were all found during excavations and have been referenced throughout historical text and images.

Hmmm…I bet some serial masturbators are very thankful that they weren’t born in ancient times. Fancy sticking stone and camel dung into your VJJ?…Lol!

Take a look at the Wellcome Collection which is currently on exhibition at the Institute of Sexology.  The exhibition is on to celebrate this expansive history of sexual experience. The items include a number of ceremonial sculptures shaped among other sexual artefacts.
