It’s possible to assume that the beauty of the naked human body has been inspiring people since the dawn of times. It was reflected in the earliest cave drawings. A female with exaggerated breasts is seen in a 25,000-year-old a rock carving on the banks of the Danube River. The legacy of ancient Greeks and Romans describes straight, homosexual, and group sex. In Peru, sex scenes were drawn on pottery. Finally, who hasn’t heard of Kama Sutra, the Indian sex manual?
Later on, wealthy aristocrats commissioned sexually tinted artworks. During the Renaissance, the Catholic church destroyed I Modi, a book whose engravings depicted sex positions. In the 18th century, Russian Empress Catherine II was said to have an erotic art room with furniture elements resembling penises and vulvas. In the 19th-century, Edouard Manet, Edgar Degas, and other impressionists shocked the public with nude paintings.
