When you think of sex toys, its not hard to imagine a phallic object that runs on batteries and controlled by some fancy app, but in reality, sex toys have been around since the dawn of time.
Sex Toys of the Ancient World
Sex toys go way back to around 29,000 BC when Neanderthals, in what is now Germany, carved out rocks into overtly phallic shapes. However, it’s unclear to archeologist whether these objects were used as sex toys, or for fertility ceremonies, but what is clear is that they paved the way for modern-day sex toys.
Around 500 BC, ancient Greeks crafted fake dongs using exotic materials, like brass or stuffed leather. Some were, for some reason, made out of old loaves of bread - called olisbokollikes. Greeks also pioneered the use of lube during this time, using olive oil.
By 1300 AD, sex toys were all the rage in ancient China. They used crude cock rings made of goat eyelids and double-sided dildos.
Sailors during the 1600s pioneered the use of sex dolls by fashioning "women" made of straw as companions for their long and arduous trips on the open seas - these were called "dames de voyage."
