9781445643434: In Bed with the Ancient Egyptians

In modern-day media, depictions of ancient Egyptian society are of a highly sexualised, lustful culture, but how accurate are these depictions of a people so shrouded in mystery and legend that it is sometimes hard to tell truth from fiction? In this fascinating and intimate insight into ancient Egyptian sex and sexuality, Charlotte Booth demystifies an ancient way of life, drawing on archaeological evidence and the written record to build a picture of what really went on in the bedrooms of the pharaohs and their subjects. Sex was a prominent part of ancient Egyptian society. It featured heavily in religion, mythology and artwork, and was not considered the taboo it is sometimes treated as in modern cultures. This book examines all aspects of ancient Egyptian sex lives, from idealised beauty and attitudes towards sexuality, to representations of fertility in art and the relationship between sex and religion. Many of the trials and tribulations that were faced are as relevant today as they were in the past: marriage, divorce and adultery are all discussed, as well as prostitution, homosexuality, sexual health and fertility. Whilst many of the remedies seem bizarre to the modern mind, some of the attitudes are surprisingly liberal, and all make for fascinating reading. From Akhenaten and his famously beautiful queen, Nefertiti, to the seductive Cleopatra’s affairs with Julius Caesar and Marc Antony, Booth provides a tantilising glimpse into this extremely personal aspect of ancient Egyptian life.

Descripción Amberley, 2015. Estado de conservación: New. Sex featured prominently in ancient Egyptian religion, mythology and art, while Cleopatra's love affairs with Mark Antony and Julius Caesar continue to fire the imagination. Drawing on the evidence of texts and pictures from inscriptions and papyri, Booth's wide-ranging survey explores the Egyptians' customs relating to love, marriage and childbirth; their attitudes to adultery, prostitution and homosexuality; the place of sex in beliefs about the afterlife; and their doctors' ideas about sexual health, fertility and aphrodisiacs.

Descripción Amberley Publishing, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The ancient Egyptians were very open towards sex and it featured heavily in religion, mythology and artwork. In an ancient culture that has become increasingly sexualised in its modern-day representation, Charlotte Booth demystifies the myth surrounding Egyptian sex. She draws on archaeological evidence and the written record to build up a picture of sex in the time of the pharaohs. Aspects of sex from ideal beauty and ideas of sexuality to the importance and representations of fertility in artwork and religious ideology are examined. Marriage, divorce and adultery will be discussed along with prostitution and homosexuality. Even to the dead, sexuality and especially fertility were particularly important, and how to ensure a fertile and active afterlife was a feature of many funerary texts. To a society open about sex, sexual health was obviously considered important and often the Egyptians turned to the physicians for aphrodisiacs, contraceptives and fertility aids. Many of these seem bizarre to the modern mind but make fascinating reading. The sex lives of pharaohs from Akhenaten and his famously beautiful queen Nefertiti to Cleopatra will feature as Booth provides a glimpse into this extremely personal but fascinating aspect of Egyptian lives.
