The consensus seems to be that it was produced(?) during the Ramessides period(1292-1075)

The book on the subject is "Sacred Sexuality in Ancient Egypt:The Erotic Secrets of the Forbidden Manuscript" by Ru Schumann Antelme,2001


Now-anybody has read this book ?


It is labelled Turin Papyrus 55001 which is 8.5 feet long and 10 inches high;it contains 12 erotic vignettes

Read that Champollion consulted it and attributed the drawings to the "immolarity of the ancients"

Could it also be known as the Turin Judiciairy papyrus ?


A scholarly discussion about it (but it is general)

http://fontes.lstc.edu/~rklein/Documents/eros_in_egypt.htm

One can see the original photos of the said papyrus at:

http://www.geocities.com/zoser8/turin.html

The few discussions by academia label it as a "satyre papyrus)..others state that it was what on the mind of the simple folks(?!)...

I would like to know if a serious translations wass made of ALL this papyrus and not just comments on the erotic vignettes and elaborating "jungian/freudian" theories from the drawings..

Some alternative researcher like Tarek Abdel Moty did state that the Remsesses where not true Egyptians but of Syrian descent.

It could explain this anomaly,re sort of imported pornography..

This Papyrus seems to be the only one of its kind ,thus...

^^Of course such depictions are unrealistic in that there is NO WAY the mens' penises can be that long and big (even for black men)! LOL [Big Grin]

And in the last picture, is that a drink the guy is putting on her butt?! And the picture before that, is that woman straddling a pyramid while putting her make-up on?!!

And I thought the Greeks were wild.

The real photos of the drawings convey a better sense-as the computer enhanced images put out the porn aspect of it in lieu of the painting per see..

Sorry ,but for a reason or another I am unable to load any images (I have tried in the past with zero results)

If someone can do it...otherwise simply go to:

I have read the original French version of the said book a while back. I'll try to get it back next. This is where the pics Djehuti posted are taken from.
Here are pics of fragments of the original papyrus:

The originals look nothing like the reconstruction and the funny thing is that the reconstruction looks MORE Egyptian than the original. The figures on the original look more asiatic than Egyptian to me. Must have been made extremely late in the Ramessid period.
