Sex education, sex advice, sexual anxieties, sex therapies….. magic lotions, creams and rings made of rubber and steel, manuals with techniques, positions and instructions.
From the word go, whether you believe in creation, evolution, alien intervention or reincarnation the fact is you have been exposed to all of the above, and that is just for starters.
Yes, when it comes to sex nothing, and I mean nothing, zero, nada can compare to sex advice – the misconceptions and the remedies offered to cure sexual problems, enhance performance and the biggest draw card of all, get your penis bigger and harder and better.
As a private escort I was never too far away from all the razzamatazz , and all of the above and more have been the topics of discussion. Some good, some bad in a mix of awe, the bizarre and ridicule.
Such discussions and all the wisdom that distils from them were just as common way back in time. The Chinese some 2300 years ago have introduced one of the earliest sex manuals known.
I’m not sure who the author was, but I can assure you it wasn’t a private escort of the old.
Well, you read in this manual that if you have sex with a different virgin every night without ejaculating you will become immortal. Certainly not a good recipe today since there aren’t any virgins left. Of course you can always try role play with an escort, virgin turning into porn star in two hours…
We have the Kama Sutra, the manual to life and eternal love. Then to spice it for maximum effectiveness you go on reading about orgasms and their page ranking, intercourse and a lot of advice about the pleasures of the flesh. Very spiritual and very carnal, yes spicy.
Now we do know there was one private escort, a true courtesan, who actually scribbled on a papyrus the perfect marketing strategy. This well-known high class escort, Philaenis, knew how important it was to making you think how important you are. A classic example of the elite escort the business woman.
During the dark ages there were sex manuals circulating pointing out sexual prejudice against women. Things like sex will drain all your energy, that women were the source of all evil, (please not the escorts) and that all women drain men from their power by having sex with them. There is a lot of truth in that you know! (smile)
Ok enough of the sex manuals and those infinite words of wisdom, how about a little love potion to get you going. Are you interested?
15th Century Venice, a very smart but lower class girl developed a potion with menstrual blood (she claimed it was her own and I believe her), rooster heart, wine and flour. Then she sold it to the upper aristocratic class as potion of love and means of attraction towards her. Well, for some time it did work, and they all fell in love with her and made love to her. And then she was found out as a scammer and put her to death.
Now there were press releases too, in 1561 Isabella Cortese published recommendations for getting your penis straightened. Do you want to know how? I’m smiling now, ok send me an enquiry and I’ll let you in on the secret. But do not send a photograph of your penis, you are talking to an escort.
Oops here is another one of great significance… significant bullshit that is. In the medical text “the functions and disorders of the reproductive organs” (1858) William Acton said the majority of women are not very much troubled with sexual feelings of any kind.
What was he thinking really, this William Acton …..? Whom he was talking to, I wonder.
Another great mind in “Confidential talks with husband and wife” (1900), the book advising those happily married to have sex once weekly, any more is excessive.
It should be once a month with the wife and every week with an escort, I think.
And today, we have vacuum cleaners – but please read “The joy of sex” so you don’t mount it accidentally… just a thought!
