    Ever seen Pompeii? I suppose this is a lot older.

    And here I was trying to figure out how the University of Iowa had been open that long....

    Re: 9,000 year old pervert

    Ummm.... okay? Is this really that surprising to anyone? The Greeks had numerous plays about sex. So because it wasn't taboo at the time they're perverts?

    I guess I'm having a hard time figuring out what's perverted about this. Does it even say in the article why the artifacts were included at the burial site? Or do you know something about this that I don't?

    Re: 9,000 year old pervert

    Its just for fun just the fact they found tons of these in a certain burial is funny all in itself im not ignorant to the fact that there were these kind of sculptures long before that period it was just a good article and needed a headline

    I'm sure they were believed to have something to do with fertility with regard to growing crops. If you read the Old Testament, the baals and temple prostitutes were all about this sort of stuff, so we know it was in the culture of the area.
