Ancient Middle Eastern society was a depraved population of smut junkies, neck biters and fetish freaks, which can now be seen at a new exhibit at the Israel Museum, displaying 4,000-year-old rocks depicting images of the savage sexual appetites of Mesopotamia.

The exhibit features two clay, handheld porno plaques -- terra cotta -- which demonstrates couples from the old Babylonia period bumping uglies and knocking sandals…and not just for procreation either.

“Mesopotamian erotica was really something racy,” said Laura A. Peri, curator of Western Asiatic Antiquities. “It’s not all, you know, missionary and that’s it.”

The fist plague shows a couple engaged in coitus a tergo -- rear entry sex -- while the second is representative of a similar scene, but in this image, the woman is drinking beer while being diddled from behind.

Dr. Julia Assante, a social historian, says that the image of the woman drinking beer during sex is “undoubtedly a [visual pun].” In all actuality, the straw from the beer is symbolic of oral sex and it is “an exalted cultural view of sex as inducing an altered state of wonder.”

While sex from behind appeared to be a favorite among young Mesopotamians, other positions detailed in the terra cotta plaques show people doing the deed side-by-side, standing up, missionary, and the classic sit and spin method.
