Prostitution
Concubines and adultery
Homosexuality
Intercourse with animals
Necrophilia

Polygami
The erotic language in words and pictures
and a selction of erotic texts

In their writings, the Egyptians were quite straightforward, whereas their official art was far more discreet and often disguised in symbolic language. Drawings and figurines, however, are pornographic and humoristic. Ilustrations in the book include figurines held in the British Museum which have not previously been published.
