Porn in Pompeii?

By  | 

Our little darling Laura shares her European vacation with us!

Last summer I snagged my mom’s AmEx and bought a Eurail Pass (a ticket that allows one to travel freely throughout Europe for those of you who have not ridden the rails), and headed off to Italy!

I toured the ancient city of Pompeii with a sophisticated Sicilian guide named Paolo and I took a lot of snapshots. I was so distracted by the muscular Paolo when we left the ruins that I completely forgot about my pictures.

When I downloaded the images to my computer (yes, my privileges have been restored) I realized that I had only photographed the illustrated menus from brothels (that means paintings from places of prostitution).

I don’t really understand most of what is depicted in these frescoes but I thought it would be fun to give them cute little names and share them with you.

The Roman Reversal

The Florentine Flogging

The Vesuvian Vortex

The Bolognan Backdoor

The Venetian Flying V

The Gemini Genuflection

Pretty neat, huh? Which one do you think is the most interesting?
