During the time of the Romans and Greeks, there have been long periods of great penile freedom. Olympics were done naked. However, in contrast to Japan, it was sometimes not a good idea to show a glans. Athletes with an already pleasantly spacious foreskin then tied the foreskin with a string before starting to throw discus or javelin. A thin line that continues to the present is that in the modern West sports players are dressed. But in many sports, all shower or bathe naked together at the end.
In Roman times, sexual preferences were also very different. Partly comparable to the Chinese empire. Romans could be married to a woman, have children with her, but at the same time also have a relationship with a usually younger man. The latter type of relationship was often more highly regarded than the relationship with a woman. But both relationships did not erase each other. They simply existed simultaneously and without problems. These situations were only prohibited in much later times of epidemics, which meant that all kinds of sexual contacts had to be kept to a minimum. Furthermore, it was perfectly normal for a Roman to take a younger man with him to learn all the intricacies first. In all areas including the penis area. Then to start his own life, to find a wife for posterity, and to take a younger boy with him.
The same happened with the Greeks. Where especially the men with a male relationship were known as very good soldiers who literally went through the fire for each other.
With the ancient Egyptians it is not entirely clear how penises were handled. The penis played a very important role in the mummification of high placed. In the ritual, an artificial rigid penis was placed on the mummy.
The other way round, it has been described how a Pharaoh once came back from a war with all the enemy’s cut-off penises piled in chariots. Little is known about how the ancient Egyptians simply dealt with penises in their spare time. It can be assumed that therefore no distinction according to sexual preference played a significant role.
In contrast to the Greeks and Romans, who preferred to depict a small sweet penis in art, the ancient Egyptians preferred more a firm, stiff penis. As a result, it can be clearly seen that nothing has changed in the penis model over the centuries.
In the European world, people fell back to the Middle Ages, while the arbian neighbors experienced a cultural revival. As a result, much was drawn into the religious. In which one could no longer read and interpret one’s own scriptures properly. When free science finally broke through, much knowledge had been lost. Like making antibiotics like the ancient Egyptians already knew. There had been many plagues. With growth and slightly more freedoms, sexually transmitted pests such as syphilis also erupted. A strict Victorian era followed. With serious social distancing. Everything related to penises was defined as extremely dirty. The growth of science has subsequently debunked much superstition and nonsense. Except about penises. There people preferred to keep talking neatly and aloof about “penises” or “phalluses”. Something we would rather not see or name.
A difficult question for the Christian world is that the creator created the first man in his image. The man Adam. What people do not know how to ask is whether Adam had a penis and so he was pleasantly jerking off every day, like every man. Because then his creator should do that every day too. In the end, the same Adam was bored and the first woman was made. In addition to many aspects that a woman has, there is also a characteristic: she has a place that can contain a penis. While those penises also fit from behind. Adam has that too. And then the question arises as to whether the creator and Adam occasionally did anything together then. Eventually things go wrong and both are expelled from paradise. They must now “cover” themselves. This once again reveals nothing but the truth. Because if there was nothing there was nothing to cover. There is no more logical explanation than that it was because it is the most paradise place of the body.
Later comes Jesus, also in the image of the creator. So man and therefore with a penis. He has all male friends. And a girlfriend. Now read back above what was already the most normal thing in the world in the Chinese empire, with the Greeks and with the Romans. The problem in Western Europe is that this knowledge had been lost since the Middle Ages. A very distorted image is created that could never have been the intention of that same creation. Priests, who must live in celibacy. But in reality often are great penis experts. Unfortunately, however, they often end up in abuse situations or develop a secret preference for this, due to this split mindset. Adam’s little penis, incidentally, was beautifully painted centuries ago by Michelangelo in the Vatican. So the answer to the most difficult question has been around for a long time.
