Ancient man-man action baby!
April 18, 2003 1:26 PM   Subscribe

The World History of Male Love website is a fairly good collection of homoerotic representations, covering a wide variety of ancient cultures. Certainly not comprehensive, but a good stop for quick reference. Of note is their library. Learn, and enjoy, and then kiss me you fool, unless you're at work where some of the artistic representations may not be safe. But call me later!

Great info, but the site seems a bit clunky. Frames at both top and bottom? Hmph.

Just when I was going to get all girly-cheesy in here...Ancient man-man action baby! ???
Aside from that (insert smirk), this is good.

May life grant all that you desire from three lips,
those of your lover, the river, and the cup.

Ain't but nothing funnier than Richard Burton's notes on the Priapeia.

Martial directs many epigrams against fellators, whose presence at the dinner-table was regarded by the other guests with consternation; a thing not to be surprised at when we recollect that the salute amongst the Romans was a kiss on the mouth.
